September's Cubmaster Corner:
Welcome to new and returning cubs, parents,leaders and volunteers. Many of our cubs have been busy with summer activities like the 4th of July parade, various day camps, and adventure camps. Be sure to turn in advancements to your Den Leader, so your scout will be credited for their summer scouting activities!
As always, with the Fall comes new opportunities for adults to serve the pack. Remember we are a volunteer organization, so let us know how you can help out this year to fulfill your family's volunteer requirement.
We have lots of exciting outings and activities planned for this coming year including hikes, camps, parades, Scouting for food, popcorn sales, and conservation projects. And of course our annual favorites like the Pinewood derby, Rain gutter Regatta and Christmas Caroling. Remember to look regularly to the pack website for further developments.
Let's go out and have some fun!

Oct Pack Meeting - Tuesday, Sept 28, 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. The pack meeting gives the boys a larger experience beyond their own den, and helps them to connect their individual activities to the entire Cub Scouting program. Pack meetings, along with the monthly Den meetings, are mandatory meetings for all registered scouts. Prospective Scouts (grades 1st-4th) are welcome to join us at this month's meeting. Questions? Contact our Cubmaster Mr LeRoy at email@example.com
