There's still time to sell more POPCORN. There are individual prizes for scouts that sell more than $400. Also, there is a Den award of $50 for the Den with the most participation and highest sales/scout. The Den award can be used for a pizza party or whatever the winning Den chooses. DO YOUR BEST to sell popcorn and support the Pack.
CAMPING is one of the activities / reasons we join scouting. In October we have two terrific camping events: the Family Campout at the Flying Circus, 6-7 October, and, for WEBELOS, the Fall WEBELOree (Civil War theme) at Fredericksburg VA, 26-28 October. Both events promise to be AMAZING and lots of fun.
There' still time for your friends to join scouting and for you to earn a RECRUITER patch. Invite them to a Den or Pack meeting. Let the leaders know they're coming so that we can welcome them and tell them about scouting.
The next Pack Meeting is the Halloween Party. Remember to come in costume. There's going to be a contest for the best and most original costumes. Fun and prizes.
Winston Knolls Halloween Parade and Festival is 27 October at 4:00 pm. Sounds like lots of fun and you'll already have a costume. More information to follow later in the month. Parents, we're still looking for a Point of Contact to organize this event and we would appreciate your help.
PARENTS, want to learn more about Cub Scouts? Cool stuff like how to make an oven (that really cooks) out of a cardboard box. Camping. Fun Stuff for Cub Scouts. Well the POW WOW is for you (and leaders). The POW WOW is one Saturday in November where Cub Scout Trainers train parents and leaders how to lead and take care of cub scouts. The Pack pays for this training, so take the plunge. Help your scouts and the Pack by learning more about scouting.
Again, welcome to all new scouts and parents. We look forward to sharing a great year, full of learning and fun scout activities.
