* Remember to take time to thank your service men and women and their families for all that they do for us.
Sorry for missing last week, but I took a weekend off to help with Relay for Life. Just a few weeks of the scouting school year left, then we will break for summer. Parents, anything that your scout has worked on this year needs to be turned into your leader by this Tuesday night (May 26). Leaders will record everything on Wednesday so we can place the order by Thursday. The new scouting program goes into affect on June 1st and we have to place the order to attain everything from the old program, before they switch their stock. Also, if during the year there are some awards or belt loops, pins or patches that you thought your scout should have gotten and did not, then email me so we can take care of that before June 1st. Reminder that many scouts worked on the Nova program last fall and only had one or two easy items remaining in order to earn their Nova patch. Parents need to get that done if they want their scout to earn the patch. All money for camp cards and all unsold camp cards are due this Tuesday May 26). All money for Webelos Camp and all Health Forms (parts A, B, & C) are due Tuesday for both adults and scouts. Remember part C has to be signed by the scouts doctor. New program starts June 1st. Boys should go ahead and get their handbook for next year. Books will be for sale at Twilight Camp only if you are registered to attend Twilight Camp. Tigers will meet this week at Cedarock Park from 7-8 pm for a fun night. Twilight camp is June 15-19 from 6-9 PM each night at Cedarock Park. The theme is "Cubs Take Flight". Cost is $55 if you pay before June 1, after that day cost goes to $85. Remember if you sign up as a staff member the cost is half price.

This camp is built around the new 2015 scouting program. Contact Travis ASAP to get the 50% discount by helping be a staff member. Currently, he really needs den leaders to make sure the scouts are at the correct locations on time. We are hosting a cub scout planning retreat on June 28th at the Boy Scout Cabin from 2-6pm. This is for adults only, don't bring your scouts. We will work on mapping out our plans for the 2015-2016 year. All parents are encouraged to attend. The pack will pay for dinner that evening, so we need you to signup to get a head count.Click here to Sign up!

For July, we will go to the Triangle Sportsplex for ice skating and for August we will do Putt-Putt. A lot of people were interested in a train ride and the Zoo Snooze, so we will look at working those into the schedule during the next cub scout year. Remember the Wildlife Club is hosting an archery day on June 6, 2015 from 8:30-Noon for all kids between the ages of 4-15, snack and lunch provided. This is a free event, but limited on space, to sign up contact Carl Byrd 336-380-2423 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Our end of the year party will be June 13th from 2-6 PM at Lake Michael. We will handout all awards that have been earned since the last awards night. We will also have our Rain Gutter Regatta event. If you need a boat, they are $4 let us know.
