Speaking of popcorn, I hope all scouts are out going door-to-door trying to make sales. I know we have had several setup online accounts! On Saturday, we had some issues with our popcorn locations being double booked. This was no fault of ours, things just happen. The good news is with checking the schedule with Lowe's Home Improvement, we discovered that they have us down for next weekend and we did not know this. So we really need families to sign up for next weekend since we have 3 locations now.

The best news is even though we only had one location that we shared most of the day, the pack scouts sold $1,192 worth of popcorn . Remember this is a great way to get a scout to their goal.
T-Shirt Deadline is this Tuesday, if you want to order a Pack 65 t-shirt or Hoodie, you will need to turn in the form and pay by Tuesday. Our goal is to get these ordered and get them back before Cub-O-Ree, where we camp with other packs from Alamance and trust me the orange really stands out in a crowd! I have attached the order form to the email. Pack 65 is known as the sea of orange.
This weekend is Community Day at the Elon Football game, we can purchase tickets for $10 per person to attend the game. I have attached a flyer about the event, if you want to go we ask that you sign up and pay Tuesday night so we can go as a group to the event.

I have worked this week on updating the Pack 65 website. I am still getting all the information updated, but this site will have forms and other important information listed on it. Please check out our website and if you can think of information that needs to be added, please let me know. www.pack65nc.com
Also several families have asked about a Facebook page for the Pack, while updating the website I discovered that a page has already been created. This will be a great place for us to share pictures and information to our pack members. I encourage you to join!
Speaking of pictures on Facebook and Website, when you sign the medical form it has a picture release section, so it should be fine to post pictures, if you do not want your scout picture posted for some reason, please let me know.
BOBCAT- Each scout needs to earn their Bobcat rank before earning any other rank, the Council is encouraging all packs to have their new scouts earn their Bobcat before the end of October, for each pack that gets 75% of their new scouts to earn the rank of Bobcat will get their pack entered into a pizza party! Den leaders, we are encouraging you to have your new scouts ready by October 28 when we host our next awards meeting. These scouts can earn a special Bobcat patch!
I have attached the council's newsletter which features our scouts on page 1&3, way to go Pack 65!
WOLVES - This Tuesday you will be meeting at the Swepsonville Fire Station 10 which is on Hwy 54 near Salem Church Road, if you have questions please contact Steve 336-516-0894.
Yours in Scouting,Lisa
