This Saturday, June 24, 2017, Pack 95 took a trip to visit Vulcan. Vulcan is one of those places that is so close but we rarely go to visit. The rain got out of town just in time and we made our way to the original Iron Man, Vulcan.
Vulcan Park provided us with two scavenger hunts. One was for outside and the statue. Unfortunately for the adults, the elevator was not working, but it didn’t bother the Cubs at all. We hiked to the top to get a view of the city. It was fun seeing everyone’s reaction to standing on the balcony at the top the tower. When you can see through the floor it makes every step tentative. Luckily it wasn’t bad enough that no one wanted to step onto it.
After finishing the outdoor scavenger hunt, we moved indoor to the museum and our second scavenger hunt. We read stories about Birmingham and how the statue was made. Those of us old enough to remember told stories about the “popsicle” that Vulcan held in his hand before the latest renovation. This cone glowed with green neon and would turn red if someone died in an accident on the Birmingham roadways.
We all had a great time and I was able to get some of the boys to pose at the top of the statue. This concludes our June events and we are looking forward to our July events, the summer soaker and our pajama movie night.
