With school starting next week, we thought it would be a good time to remind the pack 24 families of the fun events the leaders have planned for this upcoming year. You can always check out the calendar on our website, but we’ve put dates for pack events in this email for your easy access.
First of this Sunday, August 24 from 1-5pm is our summer picnic which is a rally day to get our upcoming year started and also welcome new scouts. Click here for all the details and here to register. There is no charge for this event, and it is open to the entire family. Please invite any friends and neighbors to attend if you think they have a son that would be interested in cub scouts. We ask that you bring an age-appropriate game such as bean bag toss, Frisbee, croquet or such to supplement the fun. We have already arranged for a bounce house, water rockets, water balloons and some other games.
Registration is now open for the first camping trip of the year which is to the Warren Dunes near Sawyer, Michigan. This trip is Friday, September 5 to Sunday, September 7. You can drive in for the day if you aren’t inclined to stay overnight. Click here for all the details and here to register.
