Our 1st Annual Cub-O-Ree was posted on the Council’s website. Posted on my non-scouting Facebook page. I am pretty excited since we are going to use it as a recruiting tool for the next year Tigers in the Pack. Sent info to Den Leaders to forward to their Dens.
Sent out info about Blue & Gold.
Our Arrow of Light Ceremony in March just got way easier…so far. A Troop canceled it’s event that was Friday to Saturday. Which really worked out for us. Now we have Saturday mid-morning to Sunday Noon! Crafting the Arrow of Light Ceremony….;)
Got reminded about the Portland Junior Rose Festival Parade. It’s a tradition that the Webelos I & II are the Color Guard. Asked the former Cubmaster who is also a DE who to contact. Got that info. Sent to Bears/Webelos I Den Leaders.
Sent out info about Summertime Pack Events.
Bike Rodeo, Two Parades, Hikes, Disc Golf Clinic and Swimming. Other ideas floating. Wanting to see if Den Cheif’s will help out on Hikes. The Bike Rodeo will hopefully have Troop involement. Already got ok from them. Just need to firm up ideas with Troop/Den Chiefs & Pack Committee.
Actually thought about quitting day job and becoming a full time volunteer Scouter within Council/District. Wondering if it’s possible to use what I would have made in my day job and write it off on my taxes as a charitable donation and use the refund to live off? Yeah, I know….it won’t work. Plus, my wife would shoot me.
