Welcome Back - Goodbye Summer!

posted Sep 11, 2017, 3:19 AM by Web Master   [ updated Oct 18, 2017, 7:44 AM ]

First let me thank you for taking the time to be involved in Cub Scouts and the life-long positive impact it can have on your son and the whole family.  We understand that today’s families are facing greater and greater demands on their time.  I truly believe that the Scouting program is an excellent place for our boys to learn character development and values-based leadership training that will give them a great start in the world. Scouting teaches our children citizenship, service, teamwork and leadership.

 This year we are going to try and provide your sons with a fun filled year. We have scheduled some camping trips, a "Day" Camping Trip, an overnight trip in the winter and of course we will have our annual events such as the Blue and Gold Dinner and the Pinewood Derby!

 Our first Den Meeting will be next week, September 14th !! We hope to see all of you at St Mary's. Following that, we will have our "Welcome Back BBQ" on the 22nd, followed by the first Pack meeting on the 28th. For the meeting on the 28th, we are requiring one parent or guardian to attend to receive important info about the upcoming year.

Looking for a Cub Scout Website?

posted Feb 26, 2012, 5:51 PM by Web Master   [ updated Jun 14, 2017, 11:00 AM ]

This website has hundreds of pages that already apply to your your Pack. It allows all of your leaders to contribute, it's easy to get started, and we walk you through the steps you'll need to get it launched.  This is the best Pack Website out there.  Read our About This Template page for more details

New Pack Website - Welcome!

posted May 17, 2011, 12:32 PM by Web Master   [ updated Sep 22, 2017, 7:47 PM ]

You will notice some changes in the way we go about Pack business over the next several months and we are pretty sure they will be changes for the better.  Our hope is that you can (eventually) rely on the website as your main source of information about our Scout program.

In the near future, our leaders will learn to post stories and update their calendars and some other nifty tricks to keep everyone at the top of their game. Please give them some leeway as the changes go into effect and everything starts smoothing out.  It might get a little rocky before it gets smooth.

We think you are going to like the changes.  This website is already packed with features and when we get in a groove at the leadership level it will be even better.

If you'd like to contribute let us know.  You can start at the "Strong Leaders" section.
