Summer Picnic: Sunday, July 31

This year’s Pack 24 picnic is promising to be the best ever!  We are going to have a bounce house, bottle rockets, squirt guns & water balloons, and of course fabulous cooking.  Please click here to let us know if you are coming so we can finalize our plans.  Here are the highlights in a nutshell:

  • Date:  Sunday, July 31
  • Time: 1 to 5pm; food will be served throughout the day
  • Place: National Grove South on DesPlaines Avenue south of 27th street (click here to see a map)
  • Who: All pack 24 scouts and their family members are welcome to attend
  • Cost:  The Pack is funding this event, so there is no charge, but if you can bring some baked goods to share, that would be wonderful
  • Food:  Burgers, hot dogs, bratwurst and related sides, watermelon and popsicles for dessert.
  • Bottle Rockets:  Click here for a link to how to make a rocket if you’d like to craft one in advance of the picnic (this is optional of course)
  • Squirt Guns:  Your scouts and their siblings can bring these for a later afternoon showdown that should help the boys cool off after some time in the bounce house.
Also note that we would like to get a start on recruiting new scouts into Pack 24 before the school year begins.  Please invite any friends, neighbors or family that has a boy that is in first through fifth grade in District 96.
