Caroling at Gold River Town Centre

Posted on Dec 16 2017 - 1:36pm

Are you ready for some holiday fun? Start practicing your favorite Christmas songs as we prepare to spread cheer and the holiday spirit throughout the Gold River Town Centre also known as the Bel Air Shopping Center. This Thursday December 21st, come dressed in Santa hats and other festive gear as well as your class A uniform. We will start at 6:30 PM in front of the Hallmark store. As we wrap up our evening of caroling we will top off the event with hot chocolate at either Starbucks or Bel Air. Thank you to Matt Knifton, Jason Holiman and Jennifer Hughes for heading up this event!  

Pinewood Derby Clinic

Posted on Dec 16 2017 - 1:34pm

It’s time to rev up your engines and get ready for Pack 281’s Pinewood Derby! The car kits will be distributed to the den leaders at the Christmas caroling event on Thursday to hand out to their den members. Check with your den leader if you are not going to be at the caroling to get your car. Dan Jones will once again be putting on his super-duper pinewood derby clinic on January 13th at 9 AM – 11:30 AM at his home at 8841 Nimbus Way, Orangevale for those who would like the basic shape for their design cut out. The rest is up to the Cubs to design and build. Remember the boys are designing and building their own cars with guidance from the adults. SIT BACK AND LET THE BOYS HAVE FUN!

Holiday Celebration Pack Meeting

Posted on Dec 9 2017 - 5:01pm

This coming Friday on December 15 we will have a special pack meeting where we will be celebrating and sharing what makes each of us unique. We are asking that each family bring a food item such as a main dish, appetizer or dessert that is special to your family during the many different holidays our families celebrate this time of the year. This can either be something that is from your culture, heritage or a family favorite. The pack will provide plates and utensils. Please make a little card labeling your food item for those that have allergies. Because we will be eating at this pack meeting we will start at 6:30 PM. 

Update Your Information with the Pack

Posted on Dec 9 2017 - 5:00pm

As we recharter Pack 281 for 2018 we need each family to check the information on the pack website to make sure your address, phone numbers and email is correct. If there are any changes that need to be made or you need the log on information please email membership chair Elizabeth Ruygt at goldrivmom@comast.net. This is also a good time to add additional emails if there is another family member who would like to receive the e-blast or other Pack 281 notices.
