    Hello Webelos! 10/27/14

    The Wolf den is already planning our Thanksgiving Feast and we get to bring....desserts!!   My favorite thing to bring at Thanksgiving. Please see the attached flyer for more information on our celebration.  ---Mrs. Valek
    Attached is the flyer for this year’s Thanksgiving Pack Meeting on Nov. 17th.  

    As part of a service project, this Monday I will be delivering to each den empty stockings from the Salvation Army to be filled and returned by the pack meeting.  They can be filled for an elderly person or child. Please label CHILD on any stocking for a child. Also note they do not want us to put any chocolate in the stockings.  These can be filled with personal items like tooth paste, soap, deodorant, small toys from the dollar store, socks, pens, note pads. Just a few ideas.

    Hello Ghostbusters!

    Please see the attached flyer for this Monday's Halloween Party, always a ghoulishly good time. This might be the time for us to bust some ghosts; but, don't cross the streams!!!    

    If you don't already have your awesome costume, we could all dress up in Ghostbuster themed costumes.  We'd need a few green ghosts, some scouts in lab coats with backpack contraptions & light sabers, . What do you all think?

    We are responsible for bringing the beverages.  Please "reply to all" what you would like to bring.  We have the ice there but we will need cups. In the past we have had apple cider, bottled water and soft drinks, but we are open to your imagination!

    10/12/14  Hello Ghostbusters!

    Give your thanks to Mrs. Berkowitz for arranging our Go See It for tomorrow.  Alert! The venue has changed. 

    In keeping with our discussions of nutrition for the Fitness Badge, we will meet at TCBY at the corner of US 41 and Bee Ridge at 6:00. (in the plaza with Einstein Bagels and Silverburg Diamonds).  The owner will give us a tour of his business and we can enjoy some yogurt! We can discuss where this goes on our nutrition plan.

    Fitness Activity Badge.
    If you need help with your 'Menu plan', please bring it to TCBY tomorrow. Also, please remember to keep a food diary this week, if you have not already done one.

    Family Member Activity Badge
    Keep working on your Family Member worksheets
    If you took your blue folders home, please bring them tomorrow night. 
    Fun Activity:  Go to the TCBY website:  http://tcby.com/menu-nutrition/soft-serve and roll over the yogurt cup to see the nutritional information and ingredients.  

    • Compare Mrs Fields Chocolate Chip Cookie to Ruby Red Grapefruit sorbet.  
    • Which one works best in your menu plan.  
    • How many servings of sweets do you have planned for your menu? How many did you eat based on your food diary.

    Hello Ghost Buster Patrol, 

    Please see the email below from Jane Harris, out advancements chair.

    Great meeting on Monday!  Many thanks to Mr. Romanczuk for teaching our Webelos about the Family Member activity badge; the boys had a lively discussion and started on their work sheets.  The scouts should have come home with a workhsheet to complete with you and your family.  Please make time to help them through this Activity Badge; it is meant to be done as a family!

    The scouts should also have come home with a small slip of paper listing the re quirements for the Heritage badge.  If they want to get this belt loop at the next Pack meeting,they need to complete the worksheet for Heritage this weekend, and let me know. The requirements are listed again below.

    Requirements for the Heritages Belt Loop

    Complete these three requirements:

    1. Talk with members of your family about your family heritage: its history, traditions, and culture.
    2. Make a poster that shows the origins of your ancestors. Share it with your den or other group.
    3. Draw a family tree showing members of your family for three generations.


    Hello Ghost Busters!

    Hello Ghostbuster Patrol,

    Fall weather is here!  Let's get out and enjoy it and hold our meeting outside tomorrow.

    Mr. Romanczuk (aka Joey R's dad) will be running our meeting tomorrow for  "Family Member" Activity Badge. The plan is to discuss questions #1, 2 and 3 during the meeting. We will begin a discussion on #8, then the Webelos will go home and plan a family fun night:).  

    Questions #4-6 are easy and are completed with your family.  I have worksheets to help guide you through the questions. Finally,# 12 requires that, as a Webelos, our Scouts earn the Heritage belt loop. There is a small strip of paper that has the requirements for this loop. If you earned it at an earlier rank, you must earn it again as a Webelos. Below is a link to the complete requirements. 

    The requirements for Family Member are in the Webelos Handbook and are attached.

    Upcoming Dates:
    October13 - Sue Berkowitz has arranged for our Webelos to get a behind the scenes tour of McDonalds at the corner of Bee Ridge and Cattlemen. More info coming soon.
    Oct 17-19th is Cub Extravaganza at Camp Miles.
    Oct 20th is the Pack Halloween Party. There will be a costume contest, games, and maybe some food!  if you have any great Halloween themed games, please let Jeff Berkowitz know.   
    Oct 25th: there is a Haunted Hike (District Event) at Camp Flying Eagle (CFE).  
    Oct 27th Den mtg

    Nov 7th is Webelos Activity Weekend.  We should have a good turnout for this event.  I will send the class schedules later.  If you would like for your Webelos to attend, but are having logistical challenges, please let me know if I can help.
    Nov 11 - Veteran's Day  - wear your uniform to school with pride.  Pack 100 will have a flag raising ceremony at Ashton. 
    Nov 15th - Scouting for Food Service Project - After we distribute bags, we will meet at Urfer park to work on our Craftsman Badge. If you have a bike, helmet, and/or tools, please bring them. For lunch we'll plan a picnic; probably sandwiches from Publix down the street.

    Have a great Monday!
    Mrs. Valek

    PS: here is a link to ebay for cub scout uniforms
    REMOVED PER BSA guidelines
    PPS: If you have not purchased a Webelos Handbook (you really need one)  here is a link to the on-line book. http://cubpack262.com/resource/Webelos_Handbook.pdf


    I just spoke with Nancy Vafeas and she advised that the Webelos Weekend classes are filling up fast!  (Outdoorsman closed already)  So I need to know ASAP/today  if you will be attending the Webelos Weekend on Nov 7th-9th.  Cost is $25 per scout & $25 per adult.  If you have not paid, it is important that you bring a check made payable to Southwest Florida Council for $25/pp to next week's den meeting and give to Nancy V or me! We have to send the money in to confirm our reservation.

    If your scout wants to be a Super Achieverthis is the best, perhaps only,  way to get that done is to attend these Webelos Weekends. They offer 4 badges and 1 Scout Skill or up to 5 badges during the weekend. 

    So far Michael D, Cameron and Simon are registered. They are taking Citizen, Engineer, Forester, Naturalist and Geologist. (tentative)

     I need a commitment ASAP and money on Monday.  Thanks!

    Hello Webelos I families, 
    One more item!  Looking at all the upcoming events,I realize we really need to have a parent meeting soon.  This is short notice, but I would like to have a parent meeting this weekend, Sunday 3-5  to answer any questions and to plan our camping and activity badges.  Please let me know if you would be available for this. We could meet at Urfer Park with bikes and helmets and could have the kids practice Bike Hike safety then dismiss them to play with an adult to supervise while we go over the calendar, camping etc. 

    I will discuss this at the meeting, but please email me if you can make it this weekend. 

    Regards,  Laura Valek  504-8692

    Hello Ghostbuster Patrol and families, 

    It was great to see our Webelos all dressed in their Class A's at the Pack meeting giving our new Ghostbuster Patrol yell!   The website below is a company that can make our patrol patches.They cost about $3 a piece and we will order for the whole patrol.  The patch is the ghost patrol, so we aren't dealing with a copyright infringement :)      www.patchtown.com/patrolpatches. p 8
     If we have time tomorrow after we work on advancements, we'll work on our flag. 

    For tomorrow's Den meeting please remember to:
    Wear your Class A
    Bring $1 dues ( remember you should complete a special chore to earn your dues)
    Bring your Webelos Book
    Be ready for fun!

    Opening Ceremony : Grady Harris is this month's denner. He will lead us in the Pledge, and reciting the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. He will also collect dues. Thank you Grady!
    As a Webelos you need to understand what the Oath and Law mean; you don't yet have to memorize it. We will have handouts for you to use.  We will try to get all of our Patrol complete with the Bobcat Badge this week.

She is also going to work with our new Scout, Cameron, to get him through his Bobcat.  If anyone has a connection with this family, please let me know.  We came up with a patrol name: Ghostbusters.Love it.  Patrol Flag coming soon.   Laura

    Hello!  9/5/14
    If your son went to CFE Summer Camp this summer, please scan and email me the sheet with the achievements they completed. If  they completed any belt loops or pins, let me know which ones. 


    PS:  Jane Harris has the achievements for Two Rivers Summer Camp, so we'll have those in shortly. I would like to have all the info in by this Mondays meeting so we can adjust our calendar as needed.  :)

    Hello Webelos Families! 9/4/14
    Summer is gone :( but get ready for an awesome activity packed Fall! 

    I hope all of you can attend the Ashton Recruitment night, tonight 6:30 to 7:30. This is your chance to bring a recruit a fellow classmate and earn your Recruiter Badge!   

    Then we have a Pack Service project Saturday morning 8am to 12 at our Charter Organization, St. Thomas More.  Boys, this is your chance to 'attack' the invasive plants in the woods.  Wear your Class B and bring gloves and wear protective clothing, those air potatoes can get nasty!

     Monday Sept 8 is an 'organizational' Den meeting.  Please wear your class A and bring your Webelos Book.  We will choose our patrol name and maybe start on our flag. Wear your Webelos Hat and neckerchief with your Class A on Monday. Parents, please make sure that you have a Webelos book and bring it to the den meetings and campouts   Parents please plan on having at least one parent attend Monday night. 

    Please email me a copy of what your son completed at the summer camps or any beltloops or pins they earned. See Mrs, Harris and Ms. Smith's email below

    The Webelos year is busy!   There are many camp outs where the boys can complete many of their badges and I would like to visit Crowley, Ringling Art Museum, Guide Dogs, etc.  (I am working on related badges)  Parents, please make every effort to attend these camp outs.  Our Calendar is attached.  Keep an eye out for any changes. The Raingutter regatta moved to April 18th.

    Laura Valek 

    Hello Webelos!  6/16/14
    Three weeks of summer ; whoo hooo! I hope you are having fun. Attached is a very long letter (sorry) that has some good information about our upcoming Webelos year and some things we need to get done this summer. Please take a few moments to read it. Thanks! 

    In the attached letter I ask each family to lead one or two Webelos Activity Badges. Please think of where your talents and passions lie and let me know what you would like to do. When I get the list of what each Cub completed at camp we can adjust. 

    Happy Summer!

    Akela Laura
    PS:  We will be going to the Siesta Key Beach Run tomorrow (Tues.) night (not a BSA event) and we would love to see all of you there.We usually set up near the blue or green life guard stands.

Our Goals  
Webelos is a 20 month program for 4th and 5th grade boys to prepare to join a Boy Scout troop while learning outdoor skills and participating in 20 different activity badges. A well-run group of Webelos is a gradual change from being an 'adult-run' den to being a 'boy-run' patrol ready to fit right into an adventurous scouting troop.

Summary The Webelos program has two major milestones - the Webelos rank badge to be earned at the 4th grade level and the Arrow of Light to be earned at the 5th grade. The final part of Webelos is bridging over into a Boy Scout troop selected individually by the scout.

Is your Fourth Grader thinking about Scouts?
Then you probably have some questions...
Email the Den Leader and leave your phone number.  Den Leader's like to help parents too.
