Blue and Gold This Sunday!

posted Mar 25, 2017, 12:07 PM by Ellis Giles

Please pay your spring dues if you haven't already.  Pick up your scout registration card at the B&G.

We will have a presentation from Friends of Scouting which helps provide scholarships to scouts around the country asking for our pack to help.  We will also have a presentation for Summer Twilight Camp.

Scouts making a dessert for the silent auction will receive an extra raffle ticket.
We'll have 6 crafts at the raffle including a rocket!
Awards for desserts will also be given for most scout like, healthiest, largest, most original, etc.

We're asking for a $5 donation per person for the dinner.
We have B&G patches for your registered scout.
This is a formal event so wear full uniforms and patch vests if you have them.  Webelos 2 will be giving the opening flag ceremony and Webelos 1 will be doing the closing.

Spring Camping (more details here)  is coming up!  We have a limited number of spots to the simulated moon mission.


A parent pre-planning meeting for the campout, pinewood / lego derby, and summer will follow the meeting - it should be brief.  Your help means we can do more activities for the cubs!
