Dale Hajost has visited Guatemala many times as part of a missionary group at Due West United Methodist Church in west Cobb. The group traveled to a village in Guatemala to build a church. Three years ago, Dale, who is assistant scoutmaster and committee member of Boy Scout Troop 444 in Marietta, started a sister Cub Pack in the village. He trained the leaders who recruited boys from the village and held their first Pack meeting. Last year, Dale raised money within Troop 444 and he returned with new uniforms for the Cubs and leaders. This year, he raised more money, shipped them Pinewoood Derby cars and they built a track on site and conducted their very first Pinewood Derby.
