Webelos Bridging to Boy Scouts!

Monkey BridgeThere is almost nothing more exciting to a 10-year old boy than walking across a 20-foot long Monkey Bridge that was built by teenagers – just for him.

Pack 991 parents – I hope and trust that you will all join us for a brief, but very special ceremony that will be held at 11:30am during our Pinewood Derby. Our older Webelos scouts will symbolize the end of their Cub Scout careers, and their transition – or “bridging” – to Boy Scouts, by walking across a real bridge that was built by those Boy Scouts.

Serve our Veterans – March 7

Pack 991 Cub Scouts have the opportunity to serve our Veterans dinner on March 7th at the Elks Club.  If your scout would like to participate then please rsvp to Lynette van Dell.  There will be about 30 veterans so it’s a slightly smaller group this round. We need about 8 Cub Scouts for the event. The vets will arrive at 5:30, get seated and we serve them appetizers, salad, steak and dessert. The cubs and adult helpers will eat after the Veterans are served.  This is a great opportunity to serve the community. Scouts and their family who participate get to meet and talk with our vets as they serve them dinner, and earn a great steak dinner for themselves! Full uniform is required. (no holes in jeans or pants).

Parents & Leaders meeting

Parent meeting, 7:00pm, Emerald Hills Elk’s Lodge. For the 2014 scouting year they moved to being held on Tuesdays following a Pack meeting. Please check the Calendar as in some weeks there are exceptions.

The Pack program is heavily dependent on parent volunteers. Many parents are involved in leading Dens and that activity requires planning, preparation, and implementation. We need parents who are not already involved as leaders who can manage special events and projects for the Pack.

Scouting for Food Service Project

We had a great turn out last week placing door hangers. Volunteer to help pick up the food this week and help the hungry.

We need just a couple of hours of your time this Saturday November 19.

Pack 991 is proud to participate in BSA’s annual Scouting for Food Drive again this year. This is a wonderful opportunity for the cubs to serve the
community and helping the needy.

Go to our Scouting for Food page for more information on how you can help.

Popcorn sales were a great success!

Thanks Elise for putting this all together for us. We sold over $8000 of popcorn with most of the proceeds going to Scouting and to our Pack. Popcorn sales are our only fundraising activity of the year making every sale very important to the overall funds available to our pack. 70% of the purchase total goes directly to support local scouting and our pack. Our goal this year was $100 of popcorn per scout. We exceeded this average.

Contact Elise Dixon to help, or information about Popcorn sales. You can also go to the online selling tutorial or our Popcorn page.

On line sales and sales rewards are year-round so you can continue to help our Pack buy buying your popcorn through us.

Cub-on at Cutter Scout Camp

About 8 families from Pack 991 participated in the October Cub-on at Cutter Scout Reservation. It was warm and sunny and the scouts had a great time. We will be going again for our annual Pack outing to the Cub-on May 18-20 so mark your calendars.

We have Cub-on patches

If you went to the Cub-on and did not receive your Cub-on patch contact awards@pack991.org.

You can find out more information and a schedule of future Cub-ons by going to our Cub-On page. Cutter is over 300 acres in size with a lake, full sport shooting area including an archery range and BB gun range, a magnificent pool as well as four cabins that can sleep eight people each. In addition, there are numerous camping sites, trails, a chapel, picnic tables and a full trading post to purchase items to make your camping experience easier.
