Den/Pack Meeting this week

Posted on Jan 3 2018 - 5:11pm

We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Three Kings Day, St. Lucia Day, Boxing Day and New Years.
It is time to get back to Scouting.  We have a Pack/Den Meeting Thurday - January 4th.  Yes the first day back!.  The Pinewood derby is rapidly approaching (January 27th).  Start building those cars.  THe derby rules are on the website in the left column, there will also be paper copies of the rules available at the Pack meeting.  If you did not get a car kit or need a car kit, Santa left a buch of extra car kits with me and I will have them at the Pack meeting.  Remember the main point of the derby, for the Scouts, is them building the car.

We are trying to get everyone at the meeting on time (5:30), and in full uniform.  The Scout uniform is our greatest recruiting tool!  Scouts are encouraged to wear their uniform to school.

The first 10 minutes of the meeting will be dedicated to Pack announcements and awards, the remaining 45-50 minutes is the den meetings.

Remember at Morning meeting, Scouts in full uniform can participate in the presentation or the colors at morning meeting.  Meet at the rear of the "stage" area by 8:10.

Please check with your Den leaders to see what you can do to assist with the meeting and activities
Also remember it gets dark early so it will be dark outside for most of the meeting

No Cub Scout meeting until January 4th.
