The usually active Maplewood United Methodist Church was even busier on Sunday.
Boy Scouts from Troop 362 and their families filled in extra spots in the pews. It was the annual Boy Scout Sunday observance. The troop has about 50 members.
The scouts served pancakes, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs and sausages to the congregation after the service.
The troop normally meets at MRH Elementary on Thursday nights, but when a scheduling conflict comes up, the church allows the troop to meet there. The pancakes were a thank you.
Each scout and leader of the troop has a small "80" stitched onto his uniform to indicate how many years the troop has been in existence. It's one of the oldest in the area.
