Pack News

Greetings Pack 914,
No School, No Scouts
We will NOT have den meetings on Monday Nov. 11 due to the Veteran's Day holiday.
Please note that we have permission from the council to combine the Wolf and Bear (2nd & 3rd grade) dens and they will be working through requirements (and massive fun) together.

Popcorn Pickup - *need a volunteer*
Our popcorn order has been placed - thank you all for your efforts at this fundraising event for our scouts.  These funds keep our costs down and pay for awards for the boys and events.

We need to pick up our popcorn order in Sylva on either the afternoon of Thursday, Nov. 14 or anytime during the day Friday, Nov. 15. I'm having a colonoscopy on that Friday (fun!) so I'm not available.  We need someone with a minivan, truck, or good sized SUV to pick up this order.  It's about 15 medium sized boxes and they will help you pack your vehicle.  Let me know if you can as I need to give the council a 30 minute window in which we'll send someone.  Call or text: 828.399.1657.  I'll coordinate with you about getting it to our scout closet at Cullowhee UMC.
We will distribute popcorn orders to each scout at our den meeting on Monday, Nov. 18.

Every calendar year we must "recharter" as a pack.  Your Pack Committee completes the paperwork necessary to show that we're keeping BSA policies and actually have scouts.  We just turned that in for 2014 and I want to thank Eric Hester, our Pack Committee Chair and Roy Osborn, our Chartered Organization Representative (from Cullowhee UMC) for their work on that.
Thank you all,
-Lee Nickles, Cubmaster
