We had at least 4 families attend the Burlington Royals game on Saturday evening. They camped out and had a great night!
We have confirmed open house tables at both AWE & BEJ on August 20 from 4-6pm. We are asking each family to help staff the table for about 30 minutes. Please signup for a shift and help educate other interested families on our scouting program.
We have also arranged our first Adopt a School Community Service event. Both BEJ & AWE will have a school yard clean up on August 22 from 9-11 AM.
After the school clean up, we will have a hike at Occonneechee State Park at 2 PM.
This year we will have new rules in place to help our leaders and also to respect the church space. The rules will be included in our new handbook. Each family will be given the first night to review and sign the handbook. I thought I would go ahead and highlight the den rules so they do not take families by surprise.
1. Always be on time.
2. Always wear your uniform with pride.
3. Always behave and follow instructions.
4. Always follow Akela.
5. Always DO YOUR BEST.
Discipline at den meetings will be at the discretion of the den leader in accordance with the following guidelines:
1. Failure to obey a rule will result in a warning, followed by time out or removal from an activity. In cases of harmful or repetitive misbehavior, parents may be called to pick up the Scout.
2. At the Den Leader's discretion, parents may be required to attend den functions with their Scout.
3. Den Leaders have the right to exclude a Scout from their Den for reasons of conduct. The situation will be reviewed by the Pack Committee and, in extreme cases, and after consultation with the Council, a boy may be dismissed from the Pack for misconduct.
4. Den meetings are for Scouts, their parent, and leaders. Other arrangements should be made for siblings during this time. It is the duty of any uniformed adult leader of Cub Scout Pack 65 to assist in maintaining order with the Cub Scouts during any Pack function. Parents are responsible for the conduct of their non-scout children during Pack activities. Parents may be asked to remove disruptive children from these meetings and events. We recognize that as a participant, we, through our actions, represent Pack 65, the Alamance District, the Old North State Council, and the Boy Scouts of America. We will uphold these standards of expected conduct with a smile.
Yours in Scouting, Lisa
