Saturday, November 9th, is our bag drop off for Scouting for Food. Please meet your den at Progress South at ??? we haven’t set a time yet. Den leaders please show up a little early so you can get your neighborhood assignments. Also make sure each boy in the pack signs in so we can make sure we have their names to hand out patches. We’ll have hot chocolate and donuts.
We’ll also be doing our annual service project for the school. This is our ONLY major service project we expect the boys to participate in. For those new to the pack we clean up the flower beds and put down new mulch. The more hands we have working the quicker it will go. Please bring garden tools, a 5 gallon bucket and a wheel barrows. If you want to make sure you get your favorite tools back please put your names on them. We’ll have pizza when the work is finished.
As a tip to keep uniforms clean you might want to have your son put on a shirt they can work in under their uniform shirt. That way they can take their uniform shirt off and start helping with the cleanup and their uniform shirt doesn’t get dirty.
The Fall Family Campout will be held the weekend of October 18th-20th. We will be camping at Klondike Park which is located approximately 14 miles down highway 94 from the 40/94 interchange. Klondike Park offers a variety of activities from hiking, biking and fishing with some spectacular views of the surrounding area. We encourage the whole family to come out for the event. We will have advancement activities for all ranks, but there will also be plenty of time to explore and play. Klondike park is famous for its bike trails so pack the bikes in if you have room. But if you’re going to be riding a bike, we’re going to ask that you have a helmet, yes even you adults.
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 lemonaid.
If you haven’t signed up yet and paid, you can do so when you get to the park.
