SCOUTING FOR FOOD - A SCOUT IS HELPFUL

Pack 931 Community Service Project!
https://www.stjohnsjackson.org/uploads/images/scouting-for-food_399_medium.jpg

We encourage each of our scouts to get involved in our community with service projects that help others. We all know that not everyone is lucky enough to have the food they need to feed their family. Our local food pantry is there to help those families in their time of need. 

During the month of February our pack collects donations of nonperishable food items to help stock the shelves of our local food pantry. Our hope is that taking part in this service project will help our boys think of others that may not be as fortunate as they are.


Each den will schedule a time and day that works for them to 
go door to door together collecting donations for this worthy cause.
Check with your den leader for your scheduled day and time.

SCOUT SUNDAY - A SCOUT IS REVERENT

Sunday, February 11th is Scout Sunday

A little more information:

Scout Sunday is always held on the Sunday before the birthday of the Boy Scouts of America on Feb. 8th. Though Feb. 4th is the official day for Scout Sunday 2018, each chartered organization may adopt any specific Sunday to celebrate. The BSA says a local church may celebrate "on the Sunday most acceptable to the pastor and congregation." In the United Methodist Church, for example, the second Sunday in February is set aside for what the church calls Scouting Sunday. This year that is Feb. 11th.

Pack 931

Scouts will dress in their complete class A uniform and attend a service either at their home church or a church of their choosing on Feb. 4th or 
at our charter church, Justin United Methodist Church on Feb. 11th.

Last month, we introduced the pack to CubTrails.com, a service to help leaders and parents alike keep up with our scouts' progress.  This tool will greatly help leaders plan upcoming events and enable parents to accurately track and report your son's progress to help ensure they are recognized for their hard work.

You should have already received an invitation to join CubTrails.com.  If you have not received your invitation, please email cubmaster.pack931@gmail.com.

To help orient you to this new tool, Pack 931 has produced a short orientation video to help you find your way around CubTrails.com.  Click on the video below to see what you've been missing!
