The Webelos 1 Home today is cancelled due to forecast of rain and the temps. I sent a message out to the entire pack yesterday to ensure I got everyone but it looks like some still missed the message — so, posting here as well.

I will replan again for April.

We had a great turn out for our first Pack meeting of the year.

Thanks to the parents that volunteered to be Den Leaders and Assistant Den Leaders. We wouldn't have a program without your commitment.

We still need help filling the awesome role leading Webelos I. If you're interested please let us know. We also need to fill the Assistant Cubmaster position which is key to executing the Pack program.

If you have a returning scout from last year or a child new to Scouting and we're not able to make it tonight, please send us a FB Message so we know you want to be part of Pack 88 this year. We definitely do not want to leave anyone out.

interested in transfer to new pack. Cub Scout is a 3rd grader and attended camp this summer; enjoyed it. Please provide contact information so I may follow-up for etails re: dates of your meetings, etc. thank you!
Webelos 1 - I have made the following reservations at Laurel Hill ES in the downstairs pod from 6:30-7:30PM. I tried for 2nd Monday of each month, but this is not always the case. Please note the dates as in some cases I had to make adjustments based on pod availability i.e., 10 Jan 18 is a Wednesday. I'll update scoutbook in the coming days.
