Scouting for Food

posted Oct 30, 2018, 3:36 PM by Pack 5 Webmaster

A Scout is Helpful!

This year, November comes with Scouting for Food. For people not familiar with Scouting for Food, it is a completely voluntary event. Each year Pack 5 participates in Scouting for Food event coordinated by Troop 414 off of Presbyterian Church (4 Church Rd). This is a two part - two weekend day event where the first weekend the Cub Scouts drop flyers in a neighborhood to request town patrons to donate non-perishable items which the cub scouts pickup the next weekend. 

This year, the first day is November 3rd and the Second Day is November 10th. On November 3rd, the cub scouts pick a route map from Presbyterian Church from the Troop 414 volunteers between 8am and noon. This is on first come first serve basis. The route comes with a bundle of flyers counted based on the area selected. Cub Scouts then post the flyers at the doors or mailboxes in the neighborhood in a safe manner. 
On November 10th, the cub scouts pickup a route again and go to pickup the non-perishables left outside. The routes are based on availability and are for one day only. 

Based on past experience, I would recommend that you pickup the route as early as possible. It is not needed to do the route immediately after picking up the map. You can do it anytime in the scheduled window. 

This is completely voluntary event and you can do one day or both days. Every Cub Scout that participates at least one of the days, gets a patch and the Pack earns service hours for one Scout one parent per participant. So, in the spirit of holidays and giving, I request every scout to volunteer at least one day.

May Pack Meeting 5/17 @6.30 at McKelvie

posted May 14, 2018, 7:45 PM by Pack 5 Webmaster

We have our last Pack meeting for this academic year on Thursday 5/17 at McKelvie School Cafeteria at 6.30 pm.

This being the last meeting, there are a few key things that I wanted to bring to your attention:
1. This meeting is our Bake and Toys auction. Every year parents bring in baked goods like Cakes and Cookies and / or new toys and other items that are donated to the Pack for the silent auction. You can either bake the cake / cookies or buy it. Please make sure you have ingredients identified for families with food allergies. 

During the meeting, we will give kids and parents plenty of time to bid on the silent auctions. All bids will need to be signed by the parents so that there are no surprises.

2. This meeting is also the Crossover ceremony. This is where the boys will cross over the bridge to their new ranks. 

 We will also have signups for the events listed below at the Pack meeting:
a. Fisher Cats sleepover / game on 5/18 - 5/19
b. Bedford Pre-Memorial Day parade 5/27
c. Minute Muster 6/24
d. Resident Camp in July
e. Mt. Washington Sleepover 8/4

Please remember to bring in your check books for the auctions and sign ups. 

For those who had ordered the Class B shirts, they have arrived and will be distributed at the Pack meeting. Please make sure your payments are made for the same as well. 

Looking forward to an exciting Pack meeting.
