Dear Scout Parents,

Pack Meeting
Our next pack meeting is Friday, May 18th at 7:00 pm. It will be the last meeting of the school year and will be an outdoor event around the campfire. Come for just the meeting or stick around for the entire night as we will be sitting around the campfire, roasting s'mores/hotdogs and camping out until Saturday AM. Bring you your tent, campfire chair and join us for a family overnight at SSA Plymouth.

Normally each den has a responsibility to help out at a pack meeting, so check with your den leader on how you can participate. For this meeting,
  • Tigers prepare to conduct the flag ceremony, provide refreshments and do cleanup 
  • Wolves parents supervise the game 
  • Webelos will provide a demonstration on camping 
Please reply to Jim Putlock by Wednesday, May 16th if you are going to attend the family campout on May 18th so we can plan the food requirements. The following materials below are recommended.

Parent’s Meeting During This Pack Meeting
During the game portion of the pack meeting we will hold a Parent’s Meeting. We need to fill all our leadership positions for next school year (detailed below), and solicit feedback whether the leaders are doing the right things for your sons and can improve in any way. So please make it a point to attend this month’s pack meeting.
