Lafayette Pathfinders and Adventurers Clubs Begin
The Acadian Gators and Alligators of Lafayette ended a successful year of fun, activities, and accomplishments in 1997. That was the first year the Pathfinder Club and the Acadian Alligators functioned as clubs and as such provided constructive activities to meet the needs of the young people. Activities included participation in the union-wide camporee at Lone Star Camp, a fall canned food drive, a fall social, a Christmas social, a chilly spring campout, a bike-a-thon, and a host of other activities. They ended the year with a joint Adventurer/ Pathfinder/VBS weekend, which included model rocket launching to complete the model rocketry honor (White, 1997).
