Pack Meeting Monday 1/26

Reminder Pack meeting this Monday.
The Wolf Den will be leading the meeting.  Go Wolves!!
Following advancement we will assemble "Jared Boxes" which are gift boxes that we will send to children admitted at Hershey Medical Center Cancer Center.
Your Den leader should have contacted you about bringing something to contribute to the Jared Boxes, if you have not heard please contact your Den leader to find out how you can help.
We also will review two fund raising opportunities.  These will help the pack keep dues low for next year as well as help us contribute to other community service projects this spring.
The first is the "Salt and Pepper fund raiser night"  Click here for more details.

The second will be a sub sale through Clyde Weaver.  We will sell sub tickets which can be redeemed at anytime at a Clyde Weaver for a fresh made sub.  We will have a 2 week window to sell the tickets.

For each $6 ticket sold the scout will have $2.00 added to their scout account to be used for dues or camp and the Pack will receive 50 cents which we will use for community service projects or other Pack expenses.

All unsold tickets must be returned to the Pack at the end of the 2 weeks.
At this Monday's Pack meeting we will have  a sign up station where you can tell us your sales goal (how many tickets you plan to sell) which will help us determine how many tickets to have made by Clyde Weaver for us.

So look for the Sub Sale sign up and think about how many tickets you plan to sell.

Thanks for your support!

Dens to choose time slots for Pinewood Derby Woodworking.

The below message is from Wes Carr, our Pinewood Chairman.  Dens will be choosing time slots to attend woodworking.  (If you are unable to attend, you can still cut your car by hand if need be so do not stress.  The key to a fast car is attention to the axels and most important get your car as close to the max weight allowed--5 Oz.  Plan on adding 2-3 Oz of weight to get there.  Use of accurate scale recommended.)  Please coordinate with your dens. - Phil

Hello!  We have four time slots to work on the PW derby cars at Cedar Woodworking, who has generously allowed us to use their woodworking equipment.  We would like you, the den leaders, to select which session your den will attend.  Since we have 5 dens, we would like to combine Tigers and Bears, so it would be helpful if Cindy and the Garlands could discuss between yourselves what works best for you.  

When you contact your den to let them know what session they are to attend, please take a head count of who plans to attend.  That way if your designated time doesn’t work for a scout, they can perhaps fit into another session if there is room.  They can accommodate 12 scouts maximum at each session.  The Saturday time slots are longer and may be more flexible.  

Also please ask the scouts to sketch out the cut that they want on the side of the car.  If a scout is unable to attend any session, they may be able to send their block marked with the desired cut and we can have it cut for them if they want.  

Sessions:
Saturday 1/17 8:30AM-10:00AM
Saturday 1/17 10:00AM-11:30AM
Wednesday 1/21 6:00PM-7:00PM
Wednesday 1/21 7:00-8:00PM
Note, Cedar Woodworking is located at 630 West Fulton Street in Lancaster.  You may wish to carpool with your den; however ample off-street parking will be available at a nearby church.  Several adults should be present to help corral the boys and to assist with the equipment, but not all parents are needed. 

Thanks!  Wes Carr

Missing a jacket? and other things

Mike Rimer has a lost jacket left at the pack meeting.  Please contact him to claim it, just click his name to send an email.

Big shout out to Cindy Zeyak for a great December pack meeting!  Contact her if you are missing an ornament, she picked up a few at the end of the night.

We will send out by email more info about our 2 charity fund raisers.  We will be working to help defray some of the cost of Father Currier's medical bills that his family is struggling with in addition to raising money toward Pack 184 Jared Boxes which provide fun things for kids with cancer that have to stay at Hershey Med.  I think you can feel proud about both of these causes.
Stay tuned!  Den leaders, please make sure your den is signed up to receive these emails from the blog.
Thanks!
