Scouting For Food Donation Bag Pick Up Date: Saturday 11/21/15 Time: 9:00 am Start Place: St. Thomas Church
Please take some time on Saturday to help those in need this holiday season.
Parents: each Den will need (2) - (3) cars to take collected bags to Highland Presbyterian Church by 12:00 pm Saturday morning, BSA Troop 99 will be collecting all donated food and delivering it to local food banks. Note: during your Den collection route please keep track of the total # of bags collected as I need this information for Council records.
New this year, there is a scouting for food patch and I will have a sign up available at St. Thomas Church on Saturday morning. There is a limited supply. Happy Scouting,
Reminder next 184 committee meeting is this Sunday at 4pm at the Billoni's
2035 Wynfield Dr, 17601 phone 9405447
Any interested parent is welcome to attend. We welcome all ideas and input--we all have something to add to our boys scouting experience. Come for all or part of the meeting.
The more people that participate in the planning committee, the less work any one individual has to do. Help us with a small lift and together we can move mountains!

Need parents to fill planned vacancies in the Pack Committee and leadership next year as boys cross over to Boy Scouts.
Holes need to be filled so pack can recharter in Feb. If pack cannot recharter the Pack will have to close, so the vacant positions need to be filled and paperwork completed preferably by the December pack meeting.
Recommend a parent for a position
Any unfilled positions will be filled by picking names out of hat at Dec Meeting. Unfilled positions are not an option at that point.
We will review the planned vacancies. Off the top of my head: Committee Chair (the planner), Pack Treasurer (do not need finance experience -- we are not talking large sums of money--don't be afraid!), 2 committee members, Popcorn leader, Assistant Cubmaster(you get to work with Mike, how cool is that!)
Recharter paperwork should be coming out soon. Mike will probably get it at the next round table.
Review of leadership training completion - Phil will pull up the leaders on my.scouting and review any missing training.
Reminder all leaders will need their PA clearances for rechartering.
Webelos need to start to get names of boys that want to participate in Klondike this Jan. Mike can review how we book a cabin on Tentaroo (I think that's the name) website. We will reserve a cabin at this meeting.
Join Pack 184, Cocoa the Bear, and the rest of the Hershey Bears on Friday, April 8th for the 11th annual scout sleepover event at the Giant Center, 7:00 game.
Sleepover scouts will receive a Game Day Admission Ticket, a Giant Center Dinner Meal Voucher, a Hershey Bears Scout Patch, and a parking pass. Plus post game activities (ice skating) and entertainment (movie). On Saturday morning enjoy a hot breakfast before departing the Giant Center.
Can’t sleepover? No Problem! Please plan to join us and purchase a game only ticket.
This event sells out fast so we need to have payment by the December 21st Pack Meeting. Please make your payment to Pack 184.
All sales are final as the Bears will not refund purchases.

The good folks over at "Salt and Pepper" have agreed to run a benefit for our Pack.
10% of eligible proceeds will go back to Pack 184.
To be eligible, you need to present the attached coupon at the time of the sale
AND you need to pay in CASH. (This is to offset the 2% they need to pay when using a credit card)
So spread the word and pass out coupons or email them to friends and family.
Salt and Pepper can get full during these events, so consider getting your order to go.
