Dues due Thursday 10/15 and Fishing on Saturday 10/17

Just wanted to send out a few reminders for this week.

     The dues for the 2020-2021 year will be $155.00  This can be by check, cash or venmo (@pack722wakefield).  If you use Venmo, please make sure to write your Scout's name and Den Number in the description.  As in previous years, there is a discounted rate if you have additional children in the program, that rate will be $145.00.  This is up from previous years, due to the increases at the national level and because we have decided not to do show and sell popcorn sales.  The $155 is broken down into $87 for National fees, $30 for local council for the adventure card and $38 toward the Pack.  We are asking for all dues to be paid to your den leaders by October 15th.  If for some reason you are unable to pay, we do have scholarships available, please talk to your den lead or our committee chair (Jessica Belyea). 
     Just as a reminder, the adventure card gives free or discounted rates towards various scout and non-scout related activities - here is a link to the council page for reference: .

     Come fish with us at Lake Q.  Kids under the age of 15 do not need a fishing license.  Saturday October 17th 7:30am-9am. Please dress for the weather, however if the scouts could wear their Class B uniforms or their scout hats that would be great.  Make sure to wear your masks.  Make sure to bring your own drinking water.

     Bring your fishing gear - if you have any extra, we may have some scouts who are in need to borrow it.  Please let us know.  Also, Walmart does have some cheaper poles for approx $10.  Wakefield also has a local store, Boats and Motors, on North Ave near the dinner.  A stick with string works as well!!!.  The Pack will be providing corn and worms for bait - however, feel free to bring what bait you like to fish with.

We will be spreading out around the lake.  Please see the picture below as to where each group will be.  Pack Leadership will be around to help you.
