Nitrauer FunFest this Friday!!


Thanks to everyone who volunteered for the FunFest, you made it very easy to coordinate time slots.
The list below will ensure the station is covered.  Any scouts or adults not listed are free to pop by ad hoc to help, socialize, or provide scout info for interested people.
I will have a recruitment table next to the “Tin Can Alley” game.
Tin Can Alley Schedule:
5-530 Jeremy and Jill Carr / Phil Billoni
530-6 Elijah and Alexis Arthur / Dante and Lianne Billoni
6-630 Matt and Vicky Nguyen
630-7 Moussa and Rod Jamil / Zack and Chris Fox
7-730 Bren and Cindy Zeyak
730-8 Phil Billoni

We will also have a table with Pack 184 information as we are inviting interested K-4 students to join us on our Pack hike at Landis Woods on Sunday May 31 and to also come to our end of year Pack meeting and campfire.

Reminder to all for next year all potential Pack adult volunteers will be required to have the PA background clearances to participate.
Please take the time this summer and complete the process.
I have links for the 3 sites down on the lower right of the main blog page.
If you have lived in PA 10yrs or more you do not need the fingerprint, which is a huge time saver as the other 2 clearances are instant and online.

Friends of Scouting, goal raise $10 per scout

Reminder each scouts received 1 or 2 "Friends of Scouting" pledge forms at the last Pack meeting.
Our goal as a Pack is for each scout to raise at least $10 and turn it in to the Pack this Month (May).
It should be very easy to do, think of older couples in your neighborhood or aunts and uncles.

Please turn in your pledges this month to your Den Leader.  Alternately, Dr. Billoni will be at the Nitrauer Fun Fest on May 15th and you can turn it in at that time as well.

We can do it!
Thanks!

Scouter Sunday 1 week away!

Hey Pack 184, Scouter Sunday is only about 1 week away.  April 26th at St. Thomas.
Please contact your den leaders at let them know who can attend.  We want to represent 184 in a positive way, so please try to attend.
The scouts will act as greeters, ushers, and we will also have a color guard for flag ceremony.
During the service we will present the card and money we raised to Father Currier's family on behalf of Pack 184.
Following the service they will have a lunch for us and then we can help with their spring clean up, then need a head count so that they have enough food.

Arrive at St. Thomas at 9:30 to get your job assignment.
Dress in Class A uniform
Service begins at 10am - 11am.

If you cannot attend the Scouter Sunday, please try and attend the clean up around Noon.

Bring a change of clothes for after the service, for working outside.

This is a great way to show the parish of St. Thomas how great 184 is and how much we appreciate their support as the charter organization.  Without them, the pack would not exist.
