Cubmaster Corner:

    Welcome back!  We are gearing up for another fun-filled, adventure-packed scouting year with Pack 176.  We are very proud of our Pack, its committed parents, and super enthusiastic scouts.  If you haven't checked out scouting, please do!  This year, like every year, we have a calendar full of fun, challenging, growth experiences that your scout will greatly enjoy.
    Our first Fall Pack meeting will be on September 29, BUT we are having a Pack Family Picnic in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!  Details will be coming out soon.  We hope to get the 2015-2016 season off to a fast start with the new exciting program, more great outings, skits, cheers, and songs.  Welcome Back everyone!

Sept Pack Meeting 

Tuesday, Sept 29, 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.  Questions?  Contact our Cubmaster at cubmaster@pack176.com 


Popcorn Sales are coming up . . . 

This is our only fundraiser of the year and every scout is required to participate.  Please stay tuned for up-coming dates from your Den Leader and mark your calendar.  Popcorn season comes up quickly!  

For more information contact your Den Leader or Nicole at nomuraschool@gmail.com
