scouts graduate, honor leaders

At the recent graduation of the Weebelo Scouts of Pack 23, scouts and parents alike honored outgoing Scoutmaster Andrew Pawlowski for his several years of leadership, dedication and hard work with an award expressing their appreciation.

Every year, the ceremony also honors boys who are advancing from Cub Scouts into Boy Scouts. Pawlowski, a Nevada City architect whose sons are active in the group, is advancing along with them: He’ll be leading a Boy Scout troop this fall, scouting dad Mitch Yantis says.

Their ceremony was June 8 at Seaman Lodge, at Pioneer Park.

Have you ever noticed the cozy, colorful store and art gallery at the entrance to the Commercial Street public parking lot in Nevada City?

The business is called A Loving Home Gallery, and it’s owned by Louis Buchetto.

Buchetto and his daughter, Tirza (she’s just 8), recently finished working on two new benches made out of wood from a large tree from the State Capitol grounds in Sacramento. The two benches (one of which is pictured above) will be on display at a toy store in Los Gatos, Buchetto told The Union.
