This weekend was great for the moms and scouts at Mom & Me. It was a little wet Friday evening, but Saturday was perfect. We had scouts that made crafts, fished, built airplanes, and did BB & archery. The ladies enjoyed time together and time with their scout. If you have any pictures, please share those on the Pack 65 Facebook page. We had 12 moms and 13 scouts participate this weekend at the biggest mom & me the council has ever hosted.
This Tuesday will be a parents/leaders meeting. We will be talking about the parent/leaders retreat, summer events, end of year party plans, rain gutter regatta, and pinewood derby wrap up. This weekend we have a couple of things going on. For the scouts who sold $750 can attend the fishing derby at Camp Woodfield with their families.
