Ho Ho Ho – Holiday Pack Meeting This Friday


Seasons Greeting, Pack 1776!

Just a friendly reminder of our holiday pack meeting this Friday, December 16, from 7:00-8:00.

This special Pack Event will include skits, songs and a visit from the man in red, Santa Claus.

I just e-mailed him, and he said he has pinewood derby kits for all the Cubs. What a guy!  The elves at the North Pole have been hard at work.

Bring your cameras, Santa also told me to bring the family for pictures.  He's making a list and checking it twice, and that our cubs have been good little dudes this year.  Something about a lump of coal for me.  Ho Ho Ho, Very Funny!

The pack has available for purchase extra pinewood derby kits for siblings, at a cost of $5 per kit, so that they too can participate in the big January race.

See you then,
Cubmaster John

The New Internet Scout Patch Program

The U.S. Scouting Service Project is pleased to announce Version 2 of it's Internet Scout Patch Program. With the explosive growth of the Internet and the rise of Social Media, it was necessary to re-engineer the program to assure it remained relevant and useful. The new program focuses on fostering a dialog between parent/mentor and Scout that will help prepare Scouts to be aware and alert when using the Internet.

This is a difficult and challenging program. It will require both the mentor and the participants to work hard. But, it will be worth it! As we continue to become more dependent on the Internet in our daily lives, it is critically important that we develop an understanding of its dangers and how to be prepared, aware, and alert to avoid trouble.

Find out more on how to earn this patch here.
