2014 -2015 Pack 26 Leadership team

posted Mar 18, 2014, 4:04 PM by Pack 26

Hello all,

With the Webelo Crossover before us and several of us on the Pack Leadership Team moving on with our boys, it is time that we transition to the new Pack 26 Leadership team.  The new leadership team is made up of many existing and a few new team members who have stepped up to move our Pack forward.  This team has already taken over leadership of most  functions within the Pack or will do so in short order.  We are very pleased knowing our Pack is in such capable hands. We have made great progress over the last year.  I am confident the next year will be even better!

To all of the transitioning Committee Members and Den Leaders:  Thank You on behalf of the Pack for your dedication and commitment to the boys.  Each of you has given much of your time and talents to make our Pack a success.  

A special Thank You is in order for our retiring Cubmaster Rob Scannevin.  Thank you for the many hours of service providing organization and positive energetic leadership that made this past year fun and memorable for all involved.  

To each Scout and your family:  Thank you for your support and leadership during each of the activities throughout the year.  Cub Scouting is a wonderful family activity that provides a lifetime of memories,  We hope being a member of Pack 26 has been as great an experience for your family as it has been for ours. 

Have a great  2014-2015 season!
