I just sent out an email to the entire Pack. It’s something that I really try not to do, since I did it alot awhile ago. I delegated information passing to my Den Leaders. However, this was different due to the upcoming December Pack meeting. This is one where we are getting all the items together to send over to Afghanistan. We are hoping for a lot of blankets and other items to send over.
I also sent out this info too:
As a Cubscout Pack (Scouts only, no siblings) we are going to the West Hills Retirement Home on Saturday Dec 17th @ 2pm. The Cubscouts have been invited to have a Dessert with the Retirement Home’s Veteran’s Group. We will be singing four songs. They are Frosty the Snow Man, Jingle Bells, Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer and Cub Scout Vespars.This event will count for a Service Project, part of the Music Beltloop and an outing. We will be singing these songs at the Pack Meeting for practice.
Other Upcoming Events:
PINEWOOD DERBY: The cars will be handing out on the Dec 12th Pack Meeting. The Race is on the February Pack Meeting on Monday the 27th. More info about Car turn-ins soon.
Mt Hood Pack Snow Day: It is on Monday January 16th. This is at White River Sno-Park. See attachment for more info. This event is for all Pack 221 Families. Yes, this counts as a Winter Activity/Outing.
January Pack Meeting: We are again putting on a First Aid Meeting. Last year’s was a huge success. We have invited two local Boy Scout Troops (41 & 221) to help us with this event.
February Pack Meeting: Pinewood Derby. It’s also the Scout Birthday Month.
March: Pack Campout at Scouter’s Mtn. This is the Webelos II (Fire Scouts) Arrow of Light/Crossover event. The Pack will camp in Box Cars, have dinner, play games, watch movies. But the most important is the awarding of the Arrow of Light to the Fire Scouts. The Order of the Arrow Ceremony Team will perform the ceremony that move the Fire Scouts into Boy Scouts. This overnight on March Saturday 17th.
I post this info here, so others can see what’s up in the Pack and gather ideas. I am also going to shortly send out an email to all the Den Leaders about the Cubscout Outdoor Activity Badge. As we talked about in the Cubmaster Podcast, I think it’s part of providing a quality program. If the Den/Pack is putting these things on that the boys can go do, then they should get it.
This Pack Meeting is almost running itself. There are a bunch of segments/awards to hand out. Coupled with this and the Service project, it’s going to be a fun night.
