A Cub Scout troop in Dearborn is celebrating its first female members just as the Boy Scouts of America announced it is dropping the word "boys" from its title.

Cub Scout Pack No. 112 inducted nine girls as members at a ceremony Tuesday at the First United Methodist Church in Dearborn.

The pack is one of only a handful in the country that featured "cub cadets."  The program allows a scout's younger siblings, including girls, to participate in activities minus official recognition by the Boy Scouts of America.

The Boy Scouts saw the writing on the wall.  They saw their numbers dwindle.  It's either evolve of dissolve.  Here's more from the Detroit Free Press.
