Cubmaster Corner:

This year has started off with a bang! Congratulations to all the Scouts for the hard work in earning there rank badges so far. Blue and Gold is coming up and our wonderful Coordinator, Emi Mason, and her team have a great event planned for us all. We have a few great events to come over the next several months. I am looking forward to the upcoming Trail Trekkers which are a real highlight every month, the Pinewood Derby, Webelos II bridging, Webelos Woods, the Spring campout, and most of all Crossover.

And don't forget to come out and say a warm, heartfelt thank you to our chartering organization and wonderful host for all these years: Centerville Pres, on Sunday, Feb 7 at 10am.  This is a full class A uniform event and we look forward to our awesome scouts representing our Pack well and letting the congregation know how much we appreciate all they do for us every year!  Please save the date and plan on attending!

2016 God & Country Class

continuing Mon. Feb 1 & 8, @ CPC

Once a year, CPC conducts a four week class for Tigers, Wolves, and Bears.  The classes encourage youth to have a little broader understanding of their faith.  A scout of any faith may take the class, but it does follow a Protestant workbook.  The classes will be on Mondays from 3:30-4:30 and satisfies one of your rank requirements.  The scouts that compete the course will earn the God & Country Knot patch that is worn on their uniform above the left front pocket.  It is one of only two patches that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform once your scout bridges.  It is an honor to be awarded this patch and the boys who earn it can be very proud of their achievement!  SIGN-UPS closed on Wed Jan 6.  For more info check the calendar or contact Robin at rshehane@yahoo.com  


Scout Sunday

Sun. Feb 7, 10am @ CPC

Every year we take time as a Pack to thank our charter organization for their hospitality and generosity to our Pack.  Without them, we would not have a monthly place to meet or our charter allowing us to meet.  It is very important that your scout come to help serve cake to the CPC congregation and thank the church members for their hospitality.  Scouts and parents are invited to stay afterwards for the 11am service as well, but even if you can't stay for the service please make a point of coming to help serve cake and say thank you. This is a BEST behavior and Class A uniform event.  For more info check the calendar or contact the Robin at rshehane@yahoo.com
