I hope all of our dad's have enjoyed this day with their families and thank you for helping our scouts continue to grow.
Thanks to all the leaders and parents that attended yesterday's 2nd annual planning meeting. Many topics were covered during the meeting and the new handbook was shared with all. The new handbook each scout family will need to fill out and sign the paperwork at the end of the book. This should be turned in as soon as possible, so if you are hiking with us this weekend, please bring all three signed forms and give them to Aprille Aquilar or the Crabtree's.
The new Finance Committee was introduced, which includes Stevie Couturier President, Doug Horner Vice President, Josh Brown Treasurer and Aprille Aguilar as Secretary. This is a two year appointment and they will handle everything money related, please thank them for taking on these roles. They worked very hard creating new polices that will help the scouts and the pack.
We would like to welcome the new scouts that recently joined the pack: Eli Aguilar, Noah Laird, Colin Lenfert, Jordan Love, Carson Stewart & Kaleb Tharpe! We hope that you will enjoy Pack 65! If they can get some friends to join, a recruiter stripe can be earned.
This summer, scouts have the opportunity to earn the Summertime Pack Award, scouts can earn this award by attending one event each month of the summer. For our new scouts, we invite you to attend the hike this coming Saturday at Cedarock Park at 9AM. We will meet at the paved parking lot at the park offices near the flag pole and shelter #4. Also remember this summer every time your scout attends an event their name goes into a drawing for a camp hammock.
Today everyone should have gotten an invitation from Scoutbook to sign up for this hiking event. Moving forward this is how we will handle signing up for events instead of the papers we have each week. Over the course of the next week you will receive invitations from Scoutbook for all of our summer planned events. If you are not getting these emails please let me know in some fashion so we can get you included.
Special service opportunity: SAFE is blessed to take part in Hometown Heroes. This event on July 3rd at 3 PM at Williams High School will honor the veterans in Alamance County. The coordinators for the event are encouraging those who attend to bring items for SAFE. We will need then a group of people to help box and transport the food collected at this event. They need 5 scouts to help at this event. You will meet at SAFE at 1PM and then head as a team to Williams High school. If you want to volunteer please let me know.
The Ruritan Building at Friendship Patterson Mill Rd & Mt Hermon Rock Creek Road which is really close to Cedarock Park is hosting a Chicken sandwich dinner on July 16th, please save the date and try to come out and support the community. They give out scholarships each year to Southern High Students, so this could directly impact your children in the near future.
