Pack Meeting & Leaf Clean-Up

Hello Pack 722,

This is a reminder that we have a Pack Meeting this Friday, November 18th at 6:30PM at the Wakefield-Lynnfield United Methodist Church.  As it is the season of Thanksgiving and scouts are Kind and Helpful, we are running a Food Drive and are asking that scouts and scouting families bring a non-perishable item or two for donation to the Wakefield Food Pantry.  Here are the current suggested donation items:

The following day on Saturday, November 19th from 9:00 to 11:00 AM, we will reassemble at the same church to be helpful and show our gratitude to the church for supporting us and allowing us the use of their space by raking, sweeping, and collecting the leaves that have piled up around the church during this fall season.

We look forward to seeing you all at the two upcoming events!

Yours in Scouting,
Pack 722 Committee

For those wondering about the Dutton Center event, in the past, we have had a group of scouts go to this adult day health center to do skits and play games with the clientele.  It is usually about an hour or two and the folks at the Dutton Center have really enjoyed being able to interact with the youth.  More information to follow.

Other Reminders -
- Candy money is due to your den leaders this weekend. 
- Pack Dues are also being collected this weekend.  Dues can be paid via check made out to "Pack 722" or via Venmo @wakefieldcubscouts.  Please reach out to this email and/or your den leader if you are in need of financial assistance.

Applications, Dues, & Candy

Hello Pack 722,

What a fabulous weekend we had for camping and spending time outdoors together.  We hope you all had a great time!  Some reminders to go through -

First, if you are a scout new to the Pack this year and have not either applied online or submitted a paper application already, please do so ASAP.  If we can get your scout's application into Council this week, they should be added to our roster and ScoutBook much quicker so we can start tracking their advancements and progress in scouting!  Attached is a PDF fillable application.  Please print it out, sign it, and scan it back in - they can be sent to the Pack email address.  Please note that we prefer to receive paper applications to submit.  Also note that if you did join the Pack via the online application at scouting.org, you are all set as far as dues are concerned.

Second, Pack Dues - $160 for the first scout, $150 for additional scouts in your family.  Financial assistance is available!  Please reach out to your den leader or to the Pack email address.  We want to make scouting available to everyone and will work with you to make sure the finance part is not a roadblock.  We are asking that dues be submitted no later than November 4th.  There are 2 ways to pay dues -
Pay by Check - Please make checks payable to "Pack 722"
Pay by Venmo - The account is @wakefieldcubscouts (this has changed from last year). Please put your scouts name in the memo.



Lastly, the Pack fundraiser continues with the hope that all scouts will sell a minimum of 2 boxes of candy.  Based on what we have heard, it seems sales are going well.  Let's keep it up through the end of October!  Money from candy sales is due on November 4th and can be submitted to your den leader.

Yours in Scouting,
Pack 722 Leadership
