Hello Pack 400 Families!
Wednesday September 20th will be our monthly Pack meeting and our Fall Recruiting event. Your den leaders have been diligently manning tables at the August social events at both West Jeff and Parmalee elementary schools and have some upcoming Boy Talks to spread the word about Scouting. We are inviting all local boys interested in Scouts to the September 20th meeting and hope to get them signed up then! Boys who bring a friend who then registers for Scouts earn a Recruiter patch for their uniforms and help the Pack grow!
This meeting will include a hot dog cookout. The dogs, buns, condiments, and service will be provided by the Pack. We are asking for sides from each of the Dens according to these suggestions:
Arrow of Light: Drinks
Webelos: Chips, crackers, etc.
Bears: Fruit and / or veggies, with dips as you wish
Tigers/Lions: Salads (of the leafy green or mayo based varieties)
If you have special dietary needs (or don’t enjoy hot dogs!) please bring what is best for you and/or your Scout.
The meeting starts at 6:30. In the next few days you will see a Signup Genius come your direction, we need a few parents and boys to help set up before and clean up after the meeting. Remember the impassioned plea your boys made last meeting to persuade you to help and sign up early and sign up often 🙂 !
The Signup Genius will also solicit help for the evening’s activity, making slime from basic household chemicals. All materials will be provided.
Other upcoming events to remember:
September 23-24: The Council Cub-O-Reefor Lions – Bears at Peaceful Valley. Cost is $35 for scout & parent combo. Registration is on denverboyscouts.com. There is also a Timberline District camp that weekend for Webelos & Arrow of Light Scouts at Camp Tahosa.
September 30, Saturday: Pack overnight campout at McKeever Arena, Conifer.
– we expect to have activities from about noon Saturday to noon Sunday
– Scouts can only share tents with adults to whom they are related, so if your Scout is coming, you are coming!
– siblings are welcome.
As always, contact me or your Den Leader with questions. See you on the 20th!
