Members of Greening Greater Greenfield (G3) recognized local Cub Scouts for their efforts during the organization’s Paddle on the Paint event last May.

The Cub Scouts belonging to Pack 190 were at Wednesday’s meeting of the Greenfield Village Council where council member Brenda Losey, who is also a member of G3, gave each boy a certificate and the pack’s leader a gift certificate to a local pizza place for the boys to enjoy a pizza party.

Losey said the boys had a big role at the May G3 event as they coordinated all the parking and made sure people stayed in the designated areas.

The G3 award the boys received was the Go Getter for the Better Award. It is G3’s way of recognizing those whose efforts make Greenfield a better place, she said. Other members of G3 were also in attendance while the Cub Scouts received their awards.

In other business, village finance director Carolyn Snodgrass reported the preliminary numbers for November as follows: month-to-date expenses, $274,527; month-to-date revenue, $350,633; year-to-date expenses, $4.1 million; and year-to-date revenue, $4.01 million. The general fund balance as of Nov. 30 was $502,033.

Among topics in Greenfield City Manager Ron Coffey’s report was an upcoming fundraising event for the McClain Show Choir to help with its trip in April to Walt Disney World, where the choir will perform.

The Snowflake 5K is on Dec. 17 at Felson Park. While the preregistration date has already passed, people can register on the morning of the event beginning at 8:30 a.m. The race begins at 10 a.m.
