We are so pleased to report that our Pack was awarded the 2014 Gold Standard for the BSA Journey to Excellence!
And we congratulate our Pack 176 District Special Service award winner: Cubmaster Andrew LeRoy!!
Thanks for all your time and enthusiasm this year!  
AND thank you to Boy Scout Noah Juarez for prepping and running our Chipmunk Program every month this past year during our Pack meetings.  Our Chipmunks enjoyed crafts, games, movies, and silliness under your supervision and guidance.  Thanks for all your hard work!

Cubmaster Corner:

Great Scott!!  A hearty thanks goes out to all those parents that volunteered to man recruitment tables at schools last month.  We had a banner year for recruitment, somewhere in the vicinity of 24 new Cubs.  Way to go Wanda C. and crew!

We have many parents that have volunteered for support positions this year, but there are a few more that need filling.  Please help in any way you can, some tasks are one off events and others take a longer commitment. Some are assisting in den meetings or helping the den leader plan an outing.

Trail Trekkers, the Festival of Lights, Scouting for Food, Snowball fights, Holiday Toy Drive, and the Winter Overnighter are being planned now, so keep an eye out for emails detailing each event.  

As we are set to recharter this month some solid new rules have been implemented.  All leaders must renew their Child Protection training, annually.  This is great new requirement as safety is paramount in the BSA scouting program!  Plus every boy deserves a fully trained leader.  Thank you to all the den leaders, assistants, and volunteers for keeping us safe and moving.

Now, let’s get back to having FUN.  Can any Scout tell me who Ethan is?

Nov Pack Meeting

AND Annual Toy Drive

Tuesday, Nov 17, 7pm @ CPC 

Our monthly pack meetings bring together boys from every den, their leaders, and their families, to participate in a large-scale event that serves a showcase for highlights of what the boys have learned and done in their individual den meetings over the previous month.  

Please have your scout bring one new, unwrapped toy to the Pack meeting.  It is a great opportunity to speak with your scout about counting our blessings as well as a chance to help those less fortunate in our own community.  All scouts who participate will receive a patch.
