184 Class B T shirts

Our new Class B T Shirts are being made at Premier Screen Printing, in Lititz!  Hopefully we will get them soon.
New scouts that just joined, the Class B uniform is often used on Den or Pack day trips and camp trips.  The shirts are a yellow Tie Dye to allow use to easily spot the scouts and help keep the group together on outings.
For new scouts please consider ordering a class B shirt for this purpose.  Parents may also order, they are nice shirts and again help to define our group when we are out.
For the new scouts, please tell your Den Leader the size and number of shirts and then Den Leaders, please email Phil Billoni when you have your list and he will update the shirt company with the order.

Price:  $12 - Check to "Pack 184"
Sizes: Youth Small, Youth Med, Youth Large, Adult small, Adult Med, Adult Large, Adult XL, Adult XXL
Kids fit fairly true to size, but consider room to grow.  Most popular Kid sizes are YMed and Youth Large.  There is no youth XLarge--those become Adult small.
Rule of Thumb Tiger and Wolf = Medium, Bear and Webelos generally Large
Adults fit slightly small for size(at least they did in the past).  If you are in-between sizes order the larger size.  Ex.  If sometimes you are a large in T shirts and sometimes an XL, go with XL.  If you are ALWAYS a medium, go with medium.

Popcorn time!! Rock on!

Hello Pack 184 Scouts & Families, 

It is once again time to sell Trails End popcorn! This year Wolfgang chocolates have joined in on the fun. You son may have received a selling packet in the mail and might have already started selling. If so, that's great! If not, no worries! 

Attached you will find my popcorn information paper with lots of information. 

Most of the Bears and Webelos I's received selling information and order forms from me last night. The Webelos II's will receive order forms from me at your first den meeting on Wed. 9/17. 

If you missed the Bears meeting, Mrs. Zeyak will have your order forms. If you missed the Webelos I meeting, I will have your order forms at our next den meeting at Stoner Park on Mon. 9/15 at 6:30. If you're in any of the dens and you want order forms ASAP, send me an email and I'll put your order form on our front porch for you to pick up. 

If you have any questions, please send them my way. I'm currently waiting for a reply for the following excellent questions: 
  • What percentage of Wolfgang sales goes back to Cub Scouts? 
  • Do the Wolfgang sales count toward the incentives (prizes)? 
  • Is 70% of regular popcorn sales tax deductible? (Since 70% of the cost of popcorn goes back to Cub Scouting.) 
That's all for now. 

Your Popcorn Kernel, 
Mrs. Nguyen

Popcorn Sales

Dear Pack,
    Time to sell popcorn!  We will sell the corn over 2 selling sessions and this year also allow sale of pre-purchased popcorn outside some local businesses.
Sale of the popcorn adds money to your scout account which can be used to help cover dues or scout camp!
Details will be provided by our "Popcorn Kernal", Vicky Nguyen, at your Den meeting this month.
Fell free to contact her via email at cubpack184@gmail.com with any questions.
