Join Cub Scouts

Cub ScoutsCub Scouting is a year-round family program designed for boys in the 1st through 5th grades, or 7 to 10 years of age. The program emphasizes shared leadership, learning about the community, family understanding, character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.

Young boys grow up fast. Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Cub Scouting today. The time you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.

The weather is finally warming up and we hope that everyone is getting some much needed fresh air. Time to pack away the winter coats and head outdoors. We have plenty of activities planned for the following months to get you moving and out into the sunshine.

This Saturday April 18, 2015 between 9:30am-1:00pm the collection for St. Paul’s food drive will be going on. Good Turn for America at Tips on Sheridian. Be sure and sign up at tonight’s pack meeting to participate.

Now that the snow is melted all the debris that it covered needs to be cleaned up. We have organized a Kenmore Cleanup day for Saturday April 25, 2015. Details on this will be at the packing meeting tonight.

Both of those events will count towards the Webelos service hours. So bring in the canned goods and grab a bag to help clean up the community.

Memorial Day is right around the corner and that means it’s a great time for a parade. We are all invited to march in the parade on May 25, 2015

Batter up! We have the Bison’s game and campout coming up also. May 29, 2015.

Family Campout will be on June 12-14, 2015. This year it will be at Letchworth State Park.

Anyone needing gear for the campouts including tents the pack has some available.

 

Let’s end this scouting year with as much fun and excitement as we can! Have a great time!

Hey Scouts! Just a reminder of what we have done and what is coming up!

Thanks to everyone that was able to come out roller skating, it was a lot of fun! The pinewood derby was a great success! Congrats to Christian on coming in 1st Place! George was a close 2nd place! A huge thanks and congrats to all the scouts for their hard work and participation!

Right around the corner is the Blue and Gold party. Sunday March 15. Be sure to get ahold of Kelly Mayback to see if she needs a hand with anything. We are looking for guests to bring in a covered dish or dessert, be sure to get with Kelly to let her know what you would like to make. Also the scouts will be our entertainment by preparing and performing skits for us. So be sure to practice hard and get your lines down. I’m sure we will all be in for some good laughs.

We are also looking for help with setting up with the dinner. This is the only time during the year we get to share a meal with scouts and family together!

The family campout will be coming up soon and info for that will be posted soon.

Thank you all and have a great rest of the month!

Boots and Shoes

Just a quick reminder to all parents, if your scout wears boots to the meeting please have them bring a pair of sneakers or other shoes to change into. Their boots have been leaving scuff marks on the gym floor and we would like to try and prevent that. Thank you and have a great time tonight!
