Cubmaster Update

Hello Pack 9037 Families!

Life has gotten the better of me recently, hence the delay in getting this update out to you.  First a quick recap of some recent events:

The Feed My Starving Children service event was attended by 14 scouts with a total of about 30 participants.  During the two-hour shift our Cub Scouts and families participated, over 25,000 meals were packed; enough food to feed 69 children for a year! Overall, 648 volunteers packed 171,072 meals over six shifts. Nice job everyone!  Check out our scouts, donning their very stylish hats.

We also had several of our Webelos attend Webelos Woods.  The weather did not cooperate very well, but it sounds like the scouts had a great time and learned a couple of things, namely:

- It takes lots of snow to boil noodles. (For those of you who have already forgotten, yes we had snow in May)
- The boys are capable of washing dishes and so much more.

I’m going to have to remember that last one!  Here is a photo of those who braved the weather.

Upcoming events:

Friday, May 17 is Cub-O-Ree for those families attending, hopefully the weather cooperates!

Sunday, May 19 is the end of the year picnic/pack meeting at Marthaler Park.  The picnic starts at 4 and it is a potluck.  We are asking that each of the dens be responsible for a portion of the food.

Lions – Salad or Side Dish
Tigers – Dessert
Wolves – Hot Dogs
Bears – Main Dish
Webelos – Fruit or Salad

The pack will provide water and lemonade to drink as well as some games to play.  We hope to see you there as we wrap up the scouting year with some awards and fun before summer.

Tuesday, May 21 we have swim tests at the YMCA starting at 7:30 for those attending one of the scout summer camping events. 

Thursday, May 23 is our service project at Riverside Cemetery.  We are in need of volunteers and leaders for this event, if you are able to help please contact me.  

Cubmaster Minute:

The end of the year picnic will wrap up our scouting year, but we will have some activities over the summer and we will communicate those events and dates once everything has been finalized.  I did want to thank you for your support throughout the year.  Whether you were den leader, behind the scenes planner, or simply brought your son(a) to scouts you played an important role in helping to create a great program.  I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of you at this summer activities and hopefully everyone of you in the Fall.
