Roxbury Cub Scout Pack 41 is chartered by the Roxbury Fire Department. We currently have den meetings on the 1st and 2nd Thursday of each month at 6 pm at the Roxbury Firehall. Each month an extra different activity is planned such as the Pinewood Derby, a hike or a visit from someone. There is a monthly pack meeting which is held the last Thursday of the month at the firehall at 6:00. This is a time for the families to come together and the dens to show what they have done during the month. It is also a time for advancement ceremonies. Although this pack has not been very active the last 2 years we have some very dedicated parents and leaders this year. We are off to a good start and hope to continue to make the best possible program for the boys.

Grand Gorge Community Action Group
In 2000, a community-minded group of Grand Gorge residents formed the Grand Gorge Community Action Group (GGCAG) to initiate Community Improvement Projects and revitalize the hamlet. In partnership with the Town of Roxbury, the GGCAG has installed beautiful signage at all four village entrances. The community playground and ball field at the Civic Center have been restored. In the milder months, you’ll see flower boxes abloom along Main Street, and during the holidays, lighted Christmas wreaths.
The Civic Center, restored by the Town of Roxbury and Grand Gorge residents, is a keystone of village activity, hosting senior meals, community events and parties, and community meetings. The Halloween and Christmas parties and community breakfasts held there are growing each year and warmly anticipated by the whole community.
As part of the town-sponsored Main Street Revitilization project, funded by the Appalachian Regional Commission and the New York Main Street Program, six business district facades were recently re-designed to recreate the look and feel of Grand Gorge decades ago while creating a visually appealing experience for residents, shoppers, and visitors. The GGCAC is also organizing more streetscape enhancements, including banners, landscaping, benches and signage.
