The annual Cub Scouts Pack 445 Pinewood Derby is scheduled for Saturday in the Bark River-Harris School small gym. Registration starts at 11 a.m. with racing beginning at noon. Family, friends and relatives are invited to see the amazing cars created out of blocks of wood, such as the one created by Pack member Gabe Viau. There is no charge to enter and a concession stand is available. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the family of Nelson Williams, who died in a tragic house fire in December. Eight-year-old Nelson was a Bear Scout with Pack 445.
