Den Meeting Night
Due to our unfortunate (but wisely) cancelled Family Camp Out / Advancement Ceremony, We will have a brief ceremony TONIGHT at 7 p.m. in the PARK across from GBE.
Tonight, scouts will receive their Rank Patch after all the hard work they have done this year. We will also have the Cub Closet for a friendly exchanged of unwanted rank specific uniform items (hats, neckerchief, etc.)
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?

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

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.

Sorry, Late Notice folks!
We do have a Pack Meeting tonight at 7 pm. We will be short some Leaders, but I have a pretty cool Science demo planned for the scouts. So don’t miss it!
We have patches to hand out, games and a fun STEM activity planned for tonight’s meeting.
Friends Near and Far A Scout Is Friendly. How Does “Friends Near and Far” Relate to This Point of the Scout Law? A Scout is a friend to all. He is a brother to other Scouts. He offers his friendship to people of all races and nations, and respects the beliefs and customs of others. “Friends Near and Far” reminds us that we are part of something bigger than our own community. By living the Scout Law, we are accepting of the world’s peoples and their values.
