Pack Meeting Tuesday (April 3)

imageOur April Pack Meeting is Tuesday April 2 starting at 7 p.m.

April – Loyal

A scout is loyal to his Family, his friends, his Pack or his team. What does it mean to be Loyal? Part of being loyal, means that you support the people who count on you. What are some ways that you can support others and show that you are a loyal scout?

 

Friends of Scouting

Parents:

On March 9, we will be participating in the annual Friends of Scouting campaign.  This is a very important part of our commitment to Scouting because it helps support all the great things Scouting provides to our youth.  A scouting volunteer representative  will be here to explain the importance of the program and collect donation pledges.  Each unit is asked to help carry a little bit of the load and many participants make light work.  We understand family budgets vary but ask that you invest in our youth as much as is comfortable.  The attached brochure has some suggested levels and explains more about the program and its importance.

So why is your donation important?  Friends of Scouting is the second largest source of funds for our local council programs.  If we fall short, our programs and camps are left without the resources to keep them well maintained and our programs strong.  There is no “someone else” to take care of this.  Consider this:  For more than 100 years, families before ours gave their time and resources to Scouting and the program we enjoy today is available because they did.  Let’s make sure that the new Cubs and Scouts have great Scout camps to go to.  Let’s make sure that the families yet to come have the opportunities our youth have.

I am asking you to join us by making your pledge to keeping Scouting well-funded and strong. The attached PDF pledge card can be mailed back, or parents can use the NCAC online pledge system:

https://www.kintera.org/AutoGen/Simple/Donor.asp?ievent=101739&en=6pKBKLOnG5KKIVMqG4LHLSPBIgIEKNNwHfIPI5OIJtF

Important – if you use the online system, please send a copy of their receipt to me and the SullyDistBSA.FOS@gmail.com so that we can record your pledge and arrange the recognition items appropriate.
