Join the Pack this Saturday for a Shoeman Water Projects Hike! Meet us at Manufacturers Drive in Fenton, MO at the Water Projects warehouse this Saturday, April 26th at 10:30 AM for a short hike and tour. Bring all the donated shoes that you have collected.
The 2014 Spring Family Campout will be held the weekend of May 16-18th. We will be camping at Pere Marquette in Grafton, IL. We encourage the whole family to come out for the event.
The cost of the campout is $5 for anyone ages 5 and up. The pack will be providing dinner on Friday, breakfast, lunch and diner on Saturday and a cold breakfast on Sunday. Families please bring drinks for those days if you want something other than cool aid or lemon-aid.
If you haven’t signed up yet and paid, you can do so when you get to the park.
Our pack will be participating again in this year’s Memorial Day Good Turn. This is an optional event, but a great one to be a part of. If you are not familiar with this activity, we honor deceased military personnel on Memorial Day by participating in placing flags on the graves at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. I personally love this event, and being a part of something so large, so solemn and so respectful is amazing.
We will assemble at the National Guard Base just east of St. Bernadette Church by noon. At 12:30 the silent processional will begin. All of the packs and troops particpating file in silently, and make a large circle around the flagpole. There is a ceremony – usually a guest speaker – and the flag will be lowered to half-staff while Taps is played on bugles. At 1:00 we then proceed to our assigned area, receive our flags, and place them on the grave sites.
Registration is from 11:00 AM to 12:15 PM.
