Hello Pack 22 Families,

It’s hard to believe that the cooler weather is arriving and schools are back in full swing. That can only mean that another year of exciting Cub Scout Adventures is upon us. The Pack Committee has been busy planning a lot of fun activities for us all to do this year as we embark on another year of building character through fun, service and learning opportunities. Thanks to all who came out for Rocket night last week, it was a lot of fun for everyone involved.

Our first regular Pack meeting will be held this Friday, September 8th from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at Camp Mary Bunker across from the old Building 19 location. Families and friends are welcome to join us for s’mores and campfire fun. Typically we would park in the old Building 19 parking lot near the gas station and Fran’s Flower shop, however due to the construction you may need to be closer to the main shopping area. You can then cross N. Main Street (Rt 27) at the cross walk by the gas station and go down the gravel road to the camp. It is a short walk but it may be good to arrive early to get to the meeting on time. If anyone needs to park on site for any reason please let me know and I will arrange it. And don’t forget your chairs or blankets.

Pack leaders will be in the Lilja School lobby at Curriculum Night September 13th & 14th to give out information to anyone interested in joining Cub Scouts. If you know anyone who is interested please ask them to visit us that night or get in touch with me or one of our other leaders. You don’t have to be in 1st grade to join, so any of your son’s friends can join at any time.

Our September Pack Outing will be on Sunday Sept 17th at the Massachusetts Outdoor Expo, also known as The Big MOE. This is held in Sturbridge at the Hamilton Rod & Gun club. The event introduce young and old to wildlife and the outdoors and features a variety of skills stations, craft tables, and other exhibits relating to wildlife and the outdoors. Activities include fishing, archery, kayaking, shooting, building a bird box, geocaching, mountain biking, nature arts and crafts. Visit a New England Pioneer encampment, take a peek at live birds of prey and native reptiles, be part of a treestand safety demonstration and get up close and personal at the 4-H petting zoo. More information about meeting locations and/or carpooling will be provided at the pack meeting, along with the tentative schedule of activities for the rest of the year

Thank you all for being a part of our Pack, I hope you’re all looking forward to an exciting year as much as I am.

Yours in Scouting,

Brian Chviruk
