We are very excited to begin our new PACK year! Welcome back , welcome back , welcome back! (For those of you old enough....remember WELCOME BACK KOTTER!!!)WELCOME BACK to those scouts and families who are returning and WELCOME to those of you who are new to the pack! This is a monthly newsletter type email that will be sent to you to inform you on what is happening in our great, dynamic PACK! My plan is to send it out within the first few days of each month! (I know....I promise OCT will be better!)
A fun summer was planned which included a BULLS campout, Scouting for food drive and our annual picnic! We know the summer time can be difficult to participate...SO, we want to reward those scouts who were able to participate in ALL THREE events this summer! If your scout went to the Bulls game, helped with the food drive and attended the picnic...THEY ARE ELIGIBLE!!! Please let your Den Leader know ASAP and he/she will make sure that your scout receives a Summertime Award Pin!!!! Great job scouts!
Whew...we dodged a bullet with Hurricane Irene and fun was had by all at our picnic last month! A HUGE thank you to Amy Hale and den 12 for coordinating this year's annual picnic at Ritter Park! Thank you for all of your efforts to kick off our scout year right! :) We hope all the scouts and families in attendance had FUN!
