Pack Crossover (Last meeting of the year) 

May 17th at 6:30pm 

Pack Crossover, our final pack meeting of the year.  This is always an exciting evening as we recognize the scouts for their year of working on adventure requirements, culminating in earning that next rank and progressing along the scouting path. 

The plan is to run this evening of scout recognition outside in the parking lot (weather permitting) and there will be some post event activities, snacks and social hour and Q&A table for the upcoming camping trip.

Date: May 17th

Time: 6.30pm to 8:00pm

Location: United Methodist Church at 273 Vernon St, Wakefield, MA

Dress: Class A Uniforms!!!

We could use help with the setup of chairs.  If any parents/scouts would like to get there 10-15 mins in advance would be awesome.

Flags by the Lakeside

May 20th & May 24th at 4pm 

The Memorial Day Flag Placement at both Lakeside Cemetery and Forest Glade is a town wide event.   Pack 722 will be attending Lakeside Cemetery and/or Forest Glade Cemetery.  So you should see people you recognize at each location.   

For those going, please come in your Class A uniform and if it's hot, be sure to bring a water bottle.  A screwdriver is helpful to bring as it can start the hole for the flagpole.  We do our best to see every grave gets a flag.
