On August 30 was our Pack Party. This activity is to promote Cub Scouting in our area. Marlene Schaffer, our District Representative, came and shared with the new families the Cub Scout program. She also helped with information for our 2010 Popcorn kickoff. This fundraiser helps the boys learn people skills, calculate money and will help them go to summer camp and more.We had an excellent turnout. As of September 21st the boys recruited 6 new boys. Last year we had 5 Webelos and 1 Wolf. This year’s new Scouts are: Tiger Cubs-Caleb Butler and Travis Alfrey, Wolf Cubs-Justin Lockett, Cole Martin and Remington Sprute. Bear Cub is Andrew Schlader.Our first meeting went very well. When the new boys arrived I was very impressed how the Webelos stepped up to show the new guys the ropes. Jared Coppernoll, Carson Schmidt and Hunter Chaffee shared their summer experience with them at Camp Grizzly, some of the activities we do at meetings and more.We are looking forward to another new year of Scouting. If you missed the Pack Party, it is not too late to join Scouts. Please have your son contact one of the Cub Scouts are you can call Dan Karel, 962-5350, Shari Chaffee, 962-3559 or Aleta Coppernoll. We would love to have you as part of our den. Shown above are Cub Scouts playing a game of 3 man tug of war.
