Pack 1863 will meet at GBE this Sunday at 1 p.m. to weed, plant and spread mulch for the school.  This is a big annual service project for the boys and our way of showing our appreciation to GBE for their support of Pack 1863.


  • The school will be closed, so no bathroom access.
  • Bring your yard tools! (rakes, spades,etc.)
  • Every extra pair of hands helps! The more participation we have during this short service project, the more we can show GBE how much we appreciate their support as our Charter Organization.
