Pack 281: August Pack Meeting, Registration/Dues and More...

Posted on Sep 7 2020 - 8:40pm

Hello Pack 281 Families,

Welcome back to another exciting year of scouting! Before officially kicking off the new scouting year, there are few important pieces of information we would like to share with you all, as outlined below.

UPDATE: Pack 281 Registration/Dues & Parent Survey

Posted on Sep 2 2020 - 6:38am
Good Evening Pack 281 Families, 
Due to the current state/county restrictions in place as a result of Covid-19, our pack is still unable to conduct in-person scouting, and this appears to be the case well into our 2020/2021 scouting year. As a result, the Pack 281 Leadership team feels we are unable to provide the same quality program for our scouts this year, as we have in years past. Therefore, the committee has voted to use some of our reserve funds to cover all of the scouts advancement/awards this year and the miscellaneous pack expenses. 
The only fees we will be collecting from each family in order to register your scout for this year, are the fees that go directly to the BSA organization, as these are required to stay active and earn rank advancements. The BSA annual fee is $66 per scout and an additional $12 per scout if you would like to continue your subscription to Boys Life Magazine. The Pack submits this fee to BSA in October and covers your scout from January 2021 to December 2021. If you are a Webelos II, your fee will be transfered by BSA to your new Troop once your scout bridges in March. Additionally, if your Scout still has funds left over from camp card sales in 2019, you may apply those funds to this fee to help offset the cost. I will reach out to those who have funds available. 
Standard Pack Dues (Add Boys Life) $78
Standard Pack Dues (No Boys Life) $66

Finally, we would appreciate if you could take a few minutes to complete this survey (Pack 281 - New Scouting Year/Covid Survey), in order to help us create the best program we can for your scouts this year. 

Pack 281 Update

Posted on Aug 22 2020 - 9:03pm

Hello Pack 281 families................We hope you are staying safe during these trying times.  The pandemic sidelined much of the scouting activities since March, as the Golden Empire Council prohibited scouting units from meeting in person or gathering in large groups. However, some of our dens were able to meet virtually via Zoom and fortunately, the Webelos II scouts completed their Arrow of Light requirements before the scouting year ended and participated in a Drive-Thru bridging ceremony. Congratulations to those scouts for achieving Cub Scouting's highest rank! Additionally, all other scouts have now advanced to the next rank, and all outstanding awards and rank emblems have been ordered and we will be delivering them to your doorstep once we receive them.
