Pack Meeting, Arrow of Light presentation Thursday, April 8

Our April Pack Meeting will be held next Thursday, April 8, 6:30 pm at the Greenwood Union Church. At this meeting, five of our Scouts will receive the highest award in Cub Scouting, the Arrow of Light. Two special guests will be addressing our Pack, and leaders from the Boy Scouts will be there to welcome our Webelos into the Troop. There will also be refreshments after the ceremony. Please be prompt.

Because this is a special occasion, we are asking your cooperation in bringing your Scouts to the meeting in full uniforms: hat, neckerchief, and shirt. The Pack tee shirts are not appropriate for this occasion. If your Scout is missing any components of his uniform, please contact your Den Leader or respond to this email. Our Webelos have worked very hard for five years to achieve this award, and they are due the proper respect of the Pack. Thank you.

Also of note:
  • The annual Spring Cleanup service project is this weekend, Saturday, April 10. This project is an important part of our Pack's community service component, and all Scouts are asked to attend. We will meet at the Greenwood Union Church at 9 am, pick up around the church and then move to the Greenwood School. Afterwards, we will return to the church for pizza. Please bring a plastic grocery bag or two, and gloves if you have them.
  • The Camp Nihan overnight is comin up on April 24. We will have a signup sheet at the Pack Meeting. Once again, we're asking families to bring something to contribute to the dinner on Saturday night.
  • Lastly, it's hard to believe but the Blue and Gold Banquet is coming up on May 13. For those new to the Pack, we celebrate the Scouting year with a potluck dinner and present the rank achievement awards. This year we will also be presenting the Pinewood Derby trophies at the Banquet. But the real highlight of this year's banquet will be the entertainment - which is so ridiculously awesome that we can barely keep the secret. You definitely will want to be there!
