Rank Progress!

Posted on Feb 19 2013 - 10:47am

Remember, ALL requirements for grade-specific rank badge (tiger, wolf, bear, webelos) need to be complete before Blue and Gold on 4/27, because that is when we award the rank patches with a formal ceremony. If your Scout has "missed" any Den meetings or a review of his book indicates gaps, please discuss with his Den Leader to ensure he is on-track.

Pack Planning Conference Time!

Posted on Aug 19 2012 - 9:20pm

It's time for the Pack Planning Conference on 8/21, 7pm to 9pm at Lions Lake Park! This is where all the major decisions for our Program Year are made jointly by leaders and Pack committee, so that everyone can go into the fall with a clear plan. All parents are welcome to give input, and "voting members" will be those who are registered as BSA leaders and committee members so get your Youth Protection training online and those forms in! Though it isn't necessary to finalize every detail of each Pack Meeting at the Planning Conference, or even decide every optional event the Pack wants to try of the many advertised by Council and private venues, it's essential to put the dates on our Pack calendar so each family can have that going into September. See http://cubmaster.org/Leaders/Program.Planning/Annual_Pack_Program_Planning_Conference.pdf for a great summary, though it is a little dated ("Cub Scout Program Helps" is no longer available, replaced with the Den & Pack meeting resources guide online at http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/CubScouts/Leaders/DenLeaderResources/DenandPackMeetingResourceGuide.aspx for your reference).  It is also a reminder of what the essential elements of Pack operations are, namely RECRUITING and a strong DEN PROGRAM with enough leaders to take the boys through their rank with PACK MEETINGS to tie all the Dens together and recognize their progress toward rank. Beyond that, PINEWOOD DERBY, Blue & Gold and the parade are traditional "must do" -- that means everything else (e.g. Cub-o-ree, family camping, aquarium overnight, Riversharks, Ft Mifflin, etc.) should be TENTATIVE and only committed to the extent that enough adult volunteers will support them. Cubmasters, primary Den leaders, and committee must FOCUS on the essential elements of the program and not burn themselves out on optional elements! Lisa Witherspoon (Committee Chair) will be in charge of this meeting.

Books for Library in Ghana, West Africa

Posted on Mar 5 2012 - 12:03am

Our sponsor organization, Ashland Church, just sent all the books collected by our Pack to start a library in Kwabeng, a remote village in Ghana, West Africa.  We received a special thank you letter. See http://www.africanbookchallenge.org/ for more information about this project which spreads "good will" to kids far away who will now be able to read the books we sent, otherwise many of them would have nothing other than their schoolbooks to read.
