Our January Pack meeting will be at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, Jan 24 at Montair Elementary. The .boys will be learning to tie various knots. What says “Scouting” more than knot-typing?
The boys have a lot of fun with this every year, so hopefully you can attend!
Our December Pack meeting will be at 7:00 pm on Thursday, Dec. 14 at Montair Elementary. This is an opportunity for us to give back to the US Marines with their Toys for Tots program. It is one of the highlights of the scouting year as the Marines will inspect the boys and their uniforms. Please bring one new unwrapped toy to the meeting as we will be donating them to Toys for Tots.
And it could be even more special as one of the fathers of a couple of scouts could show up in full uniform! Should be a fun night – you do not want to miss this one.
In lieu of a pack meeting this month, we’ll be packing food at Kids Against Hunger on November 30 at 6pm.
We are on our fourth year of packing food for children in need during the month of November, as a perfect complement to the Thanksgiving holiday. For those who have not had the privilege yet, this is one of our best events all year! You’ll be astonished with how the boys connect to the cause, which is packing meals for children in need around the country and across the world. (more…)
Do you know about Scouting for Food? It’s been a project of the BSA for decades. Scouts go out on one weekend, place hangers on the doors of their neighbors, and come back the following weekend to pick up the food and take it to a local food bank.
We’ll be placing door hangers on Saturday 11/4 and picking up food on Saturday 11/11. See the calendar for more details.
