August is not only back to school, but it’s also back to scouting. Our Summer Program has been a success and we can look forward to a great scouting year. Before we get going full steam ahead, we still have some summer business to take care of. We are well on our way to earning the National Summertime Pack Award and we have several boys who are closing in on earning their individual summertime awards. Our final Summer Event is Saturday August 25 . We had planned to have a joint event with the Boy Scouts at St. Paul UMC, but the Troop is not going to be available to participate. Also, there are other events going on at the Church including Soccer, so a Change of Venue will be coming our way so. The details are still being planned out, but all of our boys and our leaders should plan to attend and this is a Class A event.
Regular Den meetings begin Monday August 27th. We will have a new format for Den meetings, so things should flow a little better and be a little less hectic. At least that is the plan. The Bear Den and our Tigers are still needing leaders. If your boys are going to be Tigers this year, we need our leadership team to come together. Several parents have indicated they are interested in leading the Tiger Den, but we have yet to get Leader applications completed. We need this ASAP so if you can check in with Cub Master Aaron at the August event (or sooner via email) that will be much appreciated.
Also, the Webelos 1 den is looking for a Den Leader and an Assistant Den leader. Jason isn’t going to be able to lead the Webelos Den this year, so we have to get someone to step up and fill in as Leader as well as an Assistant. We have had a couple of potential leaders talking about helping but like the Tigers we don’t have an Application completed or concrete commitment. We need this as soon as we can, so we can start planning our Den meetings.
