Weather Update

We had a great small group hike this afternoon - right between rainstorms!  It was perfect timing :)
If you are a parent of a new or potential scout and couldn't attend the hike, please contact Mike Carney at 717-560-6363 or carneymi@mtwp.net to have any questions answered and to be on the e-mailing list for the fall kickoff.

At this point the pack meeting Monday (5/23) will still be held outside at Overlook.  We will be checking the weather radar and will post a message on the Pack 184 website by 4:00 PM Monday to confirm whether we will be meeting at Overlook or at St. Thomas.  Either way, please arrive by 6:45 PM (unless you're a Webelos - please arrive at 6:30PM).

IMPORTANT UPDATES FOR ALL!!!!

LAST PACK MEETING!  5/23 at 6:45 PM (Webelos arrive at 6:30 to begin building fire).  The boys will be performing skits and other activities, plus roasting marshmallows/s’mores.
Please bring chairs, water/beverage for your own family, roasting sticks, and a flashlight just in case.  ** Each den is providing an important ingredient:  Tigers – marshmallows, Wolves – water for the fire, Bears – chocoloate, Webelos – graham crackers. 
Check the blog if there are any last minute weather concerns.  In the event of poor weather, we will hold the pack meeting at the church at the same time. 

UNIFORMS:  Are your scouts outgrowing any of their gear?  Please bring extra Class A/Class B shirts along to the pack meeting.  We are compiling a uniform closet to share with anyone who can use them – both new scouts and returning scouts.  Let’s share what we have with others and recycle to put them to best use!  (Be sure to remove your scout’s rank badges, pins, etc. for his scrapbook J)
If you are attending summer camp, it is very helpful if the boys wear their Class B shirts especially on the first few days.  If you don’t have one, they are available for sale $12 – see Mike Carney. 

PACK HIKE on Saturday May 21, 1:30-2:30PM at Landis Woods RAIN OR SHINE.  Please bring a water bottle for everyone, and a small snack to share (fruit, bag of pretzels, etc.).  Feel free to invite any non-scouting friends that may be interested. 

GAMES NIGHT --  Just for fun, we are inviting all scouts and their families to come out Monday June 6 at 6:30 PM to play some sports.  It will be casual and we will probably have the boys rotate through different games, depending on how many attend.  All are welcome!  Sign up for pizza at the 5/23 pack meeting and bring your own beverage.  Bring your favorite sports equipment!

We have the opportunity to say THANK YOU to St Thomas for hosting our Cub Scout pack over the years and we NEED YOUR HELP!  They are having a spring clean-up day THIS SATURDAY MAY 7 from 9-12, to do some outdoor work such as spreading mulch, etc.  Please consider coming with your scout even for an hour as your schedule permits.
