Reminders:

  • Safety First!
    • Parents should be taking the donations from the scouts and putting them into the cars.
    • Kids should not be leaving the sidewalks to go into the streets or crossover without supervision.
    • Stay with kids when they need to wait for a neighbor to go inside and gather collections.
    • Do NOT let them go inside of people’s homes. If they have an emergency, please have an adult from our group supervise them.
  • We need 1 Driver for each Den/ Group to drive the routes and act as a mobile collection point. Please see me at arrival if you would like to volunteer.
  • Please knock on doors! We have seen a dramatic increase in donations when we started knocking. Many people just simply forget.

November 2 Pack Meeting

A Scout is Reverent


CUBS GIVE THANKS

A SCOUT IS REVERENT. HOW DOES “CUBS GIVE THANKS” RELATE TO THIS POINT OF THE SCOUT LAW?

During this time of the year, we give thanks for the bounty we have received. Giving thanks is an expression of our inner strength and confidence based on our trust in a higher power.032e27c1-6b5d-4f2b-8332-6e3205df4f0c


Our Pack meeting will begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 2nd.


Scouting For Food

November 4- Bag and Flyer Hand Outs in the Neighborhood.

(meet at GBE at 8:45 a.m.)

November 11- Donation Collections

(meet at GBE at 8:45 a.m.)


Every Year Pack 1863 is a proud supporter of Scouting for Food. This event happens the first two Saturdays in November. We join other local Packs, Girl Scout Troops and Boy Scout Troops to collect donated food and necessities from our Greenbriar neighbors to help our community. We meet at GBE at 9:00 a.m. sharp! Please sign in when you arrive and join your Den. The first Saturday we will be distributing the flyers and plastic bags, returning to collect donations on the following Saturday. This is a great opportunity for the boys to give back to their larger community and help our neighbors. Pack 1863 Cub Scouts will earn a Community Service Patch for this event.
