Last Call for Leaders and Chairs

Posted on May 20 2017 - 8:19pm

As you know, Saturday was the final event for our outgoing Committee Chair, Cubmaster, Quartermaster, and Advancement Chair.  Thank you Bernard and Jennifer for volunteering to take on the QM and AC roles! We are still in need of (Wolf, Bear, and Webelos I) parents who will volunteer to take on the Committee Chair and Cubmaster positions.  It is our sincere hope that our boys will have a June 2nd Pack meeting, Summer Swim & Pizza Party, get a calendar of events for the upcoming Scout year, and continue to receive weekly eBlasts! Please reach out to Vince or I if you can take on our roles and share your time to lead Pack 281 into the new Scout year!  

Congratulations Scouts!

Congratulations to all Scouts for promoting to the next rank! We had a great turnout for our Pack Graduation yesterday and everyone had fun, took great photos of their sons, enjoyed a yummy BBQ and even found shade to sit in!  Thank you to all the parents who volunteered to help on committees:  Games with Boys (Jason, Lisa, and Rick), Purchasing and Prepping Food (Kim, Tivona, and Ken), Setting up/Seving (Christina, Akiko, Anna, Amy, Giuliane), BBQing in the heat (Jonathan, Mike, David), and EVERYONE who jumped in to lend a hand to help out!
