I hope you are all ready to start the new year! We will have our first parents meeting on Tuesday September 1 at 6PM in the church fellowship hall. Please make note that the rules have changed on how we are handling the space of the church. We do not want any scouts inside the church area without an adult. During the meeting, children can play outside, but no where in the church. These rules will be covered at the first meeting at 7PM.
When we meet Tuesday, we need your scout in either Class A or Class B for a picture. Our new software allows a profile picture of each scout which helps with taking attendance. Also leaders can have their picture taken that night for the program. The first meeting is very important as we will cover the changes, explain the forms, please make every effort to be at this meeting. We will start to take orders for pack t-shirts & hooded sweatshirts for this year.
Our Jordan Lake camping trip is coming up soon and we have limited space for camping. We will take the first 35 people that pay and create a wait list after that, if needed. There will be payment slips at the meeting on Tuesday for you to fill out. We are trying to accommodate as many families as possible, so if you can only camp one night, another family may be able to camp the opposite night from you and we could get more people there. Now we hope most will come and stay both nights. We also have another camping option the same weekend as Jordan Lake. Its Elon football vs A&T, game time is at 6:00 PM on Sept 19 Camp out for cub scouts/boy scouts/misc groups Similar to last year... game ticket, food voucher for dinner at game, camp out on field, breakfast in the am for about $12-15 bucks per person. More details to come soon!
This year we will start using Den Chiefs in our program. A Den Chief is a scout from the troop who comes to the pack meetings to help the den leaders from week to week. This topic will be discussed at the parents meeting on Tuesday.
We have two recruitment nights set. AWE will be September 9 and BEJ will be September 10, remember any scout that helps with recruitment will earn a rocket to be launched October 10 at the Alamance Battleground. Also this year they are offering a special patch to any scout that recruits a new scout to join which is pictured here. Any new scout that joins will also get a rocket. We are asking that on the day at your school that we have recruitment, you wear your pack shirt to school that day. Also we ask the pack families helping with recruitment to wear their pack shirt. Home school families we like for you to join us at either of these locations to help so pick a night that works best for your schedule, and bring a friend to join scouting If anyone is good at creating display boards, we really need 2 new boards created for recruitment to show what we do! Let me know if you can do this for the pack!
