Welcome to a new year and more Cub Scouting!
We’ve got lots of opportunities to have fun and learn this year.
Our first Pack Meeting of 2016 is this Wednesday, January 6th at 6:30pm at the Keller Emergency Operations Center at the Keller Police Department Building – 330 Rufe Snow. For months where we don’t have another major Pack activity – our Pack Meetings are the first Wednesday of the month at the Keller Emergency Operations Center.
The theme for this month is Winter Wonderland and we will be discussing a Scout is Reverent. We will have a few songs, opportunities for the boys to present skits, reports about how our Cub Scouts are advancing, a couple of audience participation games and discussions about our next Pack Activities.
For the New Year, Pack 317 has NEW PACK T-SHIRTS! Several of you have the old t-shirts which can still be worn – but we have brand new T-shirts in everyone’s (including Parents!) sizes. Crystal Turner will be at the Pack Meeting Wednesday selling the new Pack 317 T-Shirts. You can bring a check made out to Pack 317 or cash. They are $10.00 each and have a great hiking graphic on them. We’re excited to have new shirts.
I’ve noticed that the dens are starting back up their den meetings. Please let me know what the Pack can do to help. Remember to keep up with the Go-See-It aspects of your dens.
