Blue and Gold Videos

We hope you had a great time at the Blue and Gold. A big thank you to the Dagen, Ghatta, Noble, Spears, and many other families for putting together a most wonderful event.

During the hectic evening, a very inspiring and well-made video that Den Leader Scott Spears made of the Webelos II unfortunately did not get shown. The Arrow of Light video is now posted on our website. He did an exceptional job and we absolutely do not want his hard work to go unnoticed.  We earnestly encourage you all to please watch it and tell Scott how much you appreciate his hard work !

The 2014-2015 video created by Grace capturing our Pack's activities had also been posted. Those of you who missed it will want to watch it as every den is featured.   Also tell Grace how much you appreciate her efforts !

As always, photos and videos can be viewed and downloaded from the Pack's photo page. Remember to check it often as photos are posted throughout the year.

Thanks !
Webmaster Elaine

Blue And Gold Celebration – TOMORROW!

Hi Pack 1776 Scouts and Families!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow is our big event, the Annual Blue and Gold dinner and farewell to our eleven hard working Webelos II scouts as they move on from 1776 Cub Scouts to Boys Scouts in the fantastic troops they have chosen, namely Troops 60,805 and 888.

This will also be a chance to see you all before Den Leaders Ammy and Ada and I say goodbye to the most wonderful group of families and friends we have had the honor to work with.

Pack 1776 is truly a unique, special group of boys and families, and I know will miss you all, leaving with a big hole in my heart for you, but a traveling down a new road with a huge suitcase full of priceless memories.

But wait! This is a happy time, and we are going to party like it's 1999 (or 1776!)

Here's a quick re-cap of the schedule:

5:30 Open doors, settle in
6:00 Opening Flag ceremony (Webelos II)
6:05 Greeting, commence dinner (no skit, short on time, maybe guitar), slide show while dining.
6:50 FOS
7:00 Arrow of Light Bridging ceremony, super achiever awards, bridge.
7:50 Leader Recognition
7:55 Closing Flag Ceremony (Webelos 1 - Steve,Lisa)
8:00 Python Ron Reptile Kingdom
8:30 Clean up, out by 9:00.

Yup, great dinner from A G Ferrari Foods, great entertainment with Python Ron, and great friends!

Now don't forget to wear your snappy Class A uniforms.

See you tomorrow in the MPR,

Your most loyal friend in scouting,

Cubmaster John

Blue & Gold FOS Reminder- Feb 15th

Dear Cub Scout Parent,

This is a brief reminder that in support of the Friends of Scouting (FOS) program, we will be passing out a FOS brochure/pledge card explaining how your FOS dollars benefits the program. There are several ways to invest in Scouting:

  • You may give with a check
  • You may charge your Visa or MasterCard by including your card number and expiration date on the pledge card
  • You may make a pledge in which case the council will send a pledge reminder in the month you indicate on the pledge card

If you intend to pay by check, please bring your checkbook to the Blue & Gold as we will be collecting the pledge cards the same evening. If you do not intend to participate, please put down zero as the pledge amount, as we need to collect all the cards that are handed out.

Here is an example of the pledge card you will be receiving.

On behalf of the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council and Pack 1776, we thank you for your support.
