Pack Meeting Thursday, Important Information

Our January Pack Meeting will be held this Thursday, January 14th, 6:30 pm at the Greenwood Union Church. We have a busy meeting planned so please be prompt.

This month is the annual Pack 722 Olympics, and we will be recognizing Wolves, Bears and Webelos for their recent accomplishments. At the end of the meeting we will be distributing the pinewood derby cars along with a special item that we think the boys will like.

If your scout wants to attend the sleepover at the Higgins Armory, there are currently just 9 slots available. You can sign up at the Pack meeting. Payment is due no later than the Feburary Pack Meeting on 2/11.

Other important dates:
  • Scout Day at the Boston Blazers is Saturday, January 30 at 1pm. Tickets are $10. Signup at the Pack Meeting.
  • The Cub Scout Olympics will be held on Sunday, February 7, 12:30- 3 pm at the Minuteman Regional High School in Lexington. More information and directions will be available shortly. This event is always a lot of fun, and don't worry -- you'll be home in plenty of time for the Super Bowl.
  • Our February Pack Meeting on 2/11 is the famous "Take it Apart Day". At this meeting the boys will disassemble whatever items you can bring in. If you're about to throw away something that's broken... don't! Save it for destruction at the hands of a Cub Scout! The only restrictions: no CRTs, no oil (drain it if necessary) or other hazardous materials. Examples of good items to bring are blenders, VCRs, computers, small engines, etc. This is a favorite event of the boys, so save your junk for the February meeting.
  • The Pinewood Derby is the weekend of March 6-7. Look for a separate email with details.
