Pack News

Cub Scouting only exists because of folks that volunteer to help run the program and see our boys succeed in it.  Please consider (very soon) if you are willing to be a den leader this coming year.  We are short den leaders for 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade.  Scouting provides many resources to help you as a den leader, including scripted den meetings, training, and support from me locally.  I did it for the first time last year and had a blast.  Parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts, and friends in the community are all welcome to volunteer.  Contact me if you would like to learn more.

Please take note of the following coming up on our calendar
