Letter: Cub Scouts enjoy tour of the newspaper

Pati Bettale
The Daily Times


One of the requirements for the Cub Scout Bear advancement is to visit a newspaper office. I called the Daily Times Office for a last minute tour and our little den of Scouts were welcomed by your staff the following day.

We were taken to several different areas in two buildings by very knowledgeable guides.

We were shown how your paper gathers news, how it is set up for printing, how it is printed up, how it is distributed for delivery and how some of the paper is recycled.

The boys especially enjoyed the large printing presses.

Thank you so much for taking the time to show these Cub Scout around and teaching them about your facility.
