December Pack holiday caroling
Our Pack's traditional holiday caroling event is scheduled for this Friday, December 6, at the Gold River Shopping Centre.  This is a fun event as the scouts sing holiday songs at the various stores and get to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate at the end.  Please RSVP on Scoutbook as soon as possible so we can inform Bel Air grocery store how many hot chocolate cups and treats are needed.
 
We will meet at the Gold River Starbucks at 6:00PM.  Please have your scout dressed warmly in their Class A uniform, along with holiday accents (Santa hat, lights, etc.).  We will serenade the patrons at Starbucks then move on to the next establishment until we arrive at the Bel Air supermarket.  In addition, if the weather cooperates, we will sing some carols in front of the Christmas tree by Blaze Pizza.
 
Scouts that did not receive their Pinewood Derby car kits at the November Pack meeting will receive their kits at the caroling event.
 
And speaking of Pinewood Derby............

Veterans Day parade
Our Pack will be marching in the Veterans Day parade in Folsom.  Thanks to Cubmaster Jasper for securing our spot in the parade.  The parade starts at the Target parking lot (1010 E. Bidwell) and ends at the Folsom Community Center (52 Natoma Street).  The parade starts at 9:00AM on Veterans Day, November 11.  Please be prepared to have your scout sharply dressed in their Class A uniform to honor those who served.
 
This year's parade theme is "Celebrating Over a Century of Service to Our Country and Going Strong."  
 
Line up is from 7:15 to 7:30 AM with the parade beginning at 9:00 AM.  Because of the long wait before the parade start, the younger scouts (Lions, Tigers, Wolves, and Bears) can show up at 8:00 AM.  Webelos I & II need to be at the parade start location at 7:30 AM.  Parents of Lions, Tigers, and Wolves need to march in the parade with their scout.  Parents of Bears and Webelos are not required but are encouraged to walk in the parade with their scout.
