Pack Meeting This Sunday!!!

Post date: Sep 14, 2017 8:32:47 PM

I hope you will join us at Pack 1040's September 17th Pack meeting (3:30 start) in the Multipurpose Room (School Cafeteria) for ”Fun with a Purpose." Would you like to know what we're doing at this meeting?

We will start with a gathering game hosted by Den 5 Webelos, followed by a flag ceremony by our Arrow of Light Den, the Phoenix Den. The two Webelos Dens, Dens 5 and 7, will assist the Phoenix Den and the Pack leaders in a round robin of Cub Scout symbolism. The Cub Scouts will revisit the Scout Law, the Scout Oath, the Cub Scout Handshake, Sign, and Salute and the Motto. Any Cub Scout who hasn't earned the Bobcat Rank will have done so by the end of the activity. During that activity, Pack leadership will be available to answer parent questions, laptops will be available for online signup, and Pack t-shirts will be available for new Scouts and for purchase by returning Scouts. If any Scouts are new or have not received their new Rank book and neckerchief (please let us know need in advance), we can distribute those before discussing our popcorn sale fundraiser. We will then proceed to a short game and a cupcake distribution before our closing flag ceremony.

If you know a boy in grade 1st through 5th who would like to join Cub Scouts, please invite them. We particularly want to reach new 1st graders. Please share the invite in your media streams and those of your school and your other groups.

Long term calendar note: our campout, originally scheduled for November 3-5 has been rescheduled in response to damage to campsites. We are now scheduled for December 1-3 at Camp Bovay for Adventure Camp. See Please let your Den leader know if you will, or cannot, make the campout.

More information is available at the Pack website,, including a new Campout 101, Parent Information Packet, and a Quick Start Guide (see Documents).

We have an ongoing need for leaders in the Pack. If you are interested in taking on a position and undertaking BSA training lets us know.
