Pack 1863 Scouting Year Begins!

Hello Families!

I hope everyone enjoyed their March Break. (Haha) We are working on developing plans for the 2020-2021 Scouting Year. We have all learned to adapt and rethink the way we work, learn, and live our lives. Cub Scouts is and will always be about families. So we would like for the families to help us move forward with Scouting by completing this brief survey. Your feedback is greatly appreciated!

Community Support Needed

Dear Pack Families,

The GBE Scouting Community (led by our GBE Girl Scouts), at the request of the GBE counselors, is being asked to channel some of our energy around COVID-19 into supporting families in our community who need assistance given the extended shutdown of the schools,  and the impact this will have on their ability to access school meals and potential loss of income.
Can you spare a few extras of something you picked up at the grocery store?
Items Needed:
Canned goods, pasta, rice, ramen, cooking oil, peanut butter and jelly crackers, Clorox cleaning wipes, cleaning solution, hand soap, baking mix, cereal, oatmeal, applesauce, nuts, shelf stable milk, soup.
Food Donations can be dropped off BY TOMORROW (this Sunday) at: 
12843 Mount Royal Lane (Ivy Home)
Or
12804 Mount Royal Lane (Lynch home)
If you would prefer to make a monetary donation, please do so by 5pm TODAY (SATURDAY), so one final shopping trip can be done.  For monetary donation please go to PayPal.me/troop2940 and choose the friend option.  
Thank you for your time and efforts to ‘help others in need at all times’.  Wishing everyone health and wellness during the next few weeks.

SIGN UP HERE for the car cutting clinic Sunday, November 10th. The clinic will run from 1:30-6:30. I strongly encourage everyone to come today. We have great weather today, so beat the cold by not waiting until the December clinic!

Each scout will receive a car at no cost this year (siblings are welcome to purchase a kit and participate $4.50).

What to do at the clinic:

  • Design a car for creativity or speed…. your choice!

  • Your design will get cut out into a rough shape and roughly sanded

  • You will grind and polish your axles to improve your speed.

  • Take home your car and sandpaper to smooth it out and paint at home!

Expect to need at least an hour to complete the work at the clinic. At the clinics, each participant will have their car cut and learn to sand and shape their race car.
