Upcoming Events:

Join Pack 176 and join the adventure!


January Pack Meeting: Tuesday, January 31st, 7pm at Centerville Presbyterian Church in Fremont. Bridging ceremony for Webelos 1 patrols.


Scout Sunday: 9am Sunday, February 5th at Centerville Prebyterian Church in Fremont. Come represent our Pack to thank the Church for being our Charter Organization (our sponsor), and for the use of their facilities, which they have generously provided to our Pack year after year. Centerville Presbyterian Church (CPC) has two church services. Between the two services we will be serving cake to the congregation to thank them for their support to our Pack. We will be either right outside the gym or inside they gym 10am-11am. (There are mini brownies for attending scouts.) CPC has asked us to come and attend the entire service from 9am-10am. During the service they will have us stand to be recognized. It would be great if you and your scouts can stay for both, but if not, come for either the cake serving or the church service. Please have your scouts wear their Class A uniform. There will be a sign-up sheet as this is a patch event. Also remind scouts not to run around and to be respectful while serving cake and at the church service. If you have any questions, contact Robin Shehane at rshehane@yahoo.com.

FAQ’s about the Blue & Gold Banquet

2017 Theme – Into the Wild

What is the Blue & Gold Banquet?

The Blue & Gold Banquet is probably the most exciting event of the whole year because it is a birthday party for Cub Scouting. The banquet is always held in February, the anniversary month of the Boy Scouts of America. Every year there is a theme.

All Cub Scouts and their immediate families can attend this event.

What do you do at the dinner?

The main events include the main dinner from Borschik Catering (Eastern European) and Bronco Billys Pizza Parlor, performance by Fremont West Coast Martial Arts, fun activities, a cake bake auction and silent auction for prize baskets.

What is the attire?

All scouts must wear Class A uniform. The event is casual.

What is the Cake Bake Auction?

All Scouts, Chipmunks, and Girl Scouts may participate in baking a cake to be entered in a silent auction and judging contest (patch event for scouts). Bidding will go on during the dinner until the closing is announced. Cakes must be baked and designed by the Scout! Categories are as follows:

Yummiest looking     Best Cub Scout Theme          Original Creation

CLASS B UNIFORMS

Our class “B” or "activities" uniform is an alternate uniform shirt, a t-shirt with the pack’s logo, worn to certain outdoor scouting events and activities. It is used mostly for outdoor activities and events during the spring and summer months. The class “B” uniform should only be worn to scouting events and activities when instructed by your Den Leader or Cubmaster. For all Pack and Den Meetings and most activities and events the normal full Class “A” Uniform must be worn.
