S4F Collection Day is Here!

Scouting for Food is a nationwide event and a  major source of resupply for the area food banks whose shelves Cub_Scout_Charactersare sparse this time of year. This is a valuable service project for our community and scouts. We need a lot of volunteers tomorrow.


Tomorrow morning will be part two of Scouting for Food. We will meet at GBE at 8:45 to begin collection.

Once scouts return from the neighborhood, we will sort the collected items for the Boy Scouts to load up. There will be some refreshments there for the scouts once they return from collection.

We need boxes! We need many standard sized boxes. I’m talking about paper ream boxes, banker boxes, etc. to sort all the food collected.

Scouting For Food Tomorrow

SFFWe will do our part to kick off our annual Scouting for Food Drive Saturday morning at 9 AM. Please arrive at GBE at 8:45 so we can organize and distribute the bags and flyers. Scouts and their families will be given routes based on their Dens in the morning. This is a SERVICE PROJECT and participating scouts will receive a patch for Scouting for Food 2016!

This first weekend only takes about 1-2 hours (depending on the number of volunteers). Tiger Scouts will be lead by Den leaders and parents who will guide the kids as they do the activity. We will go over additional details in the morning. See you all there!

Pack 1863 Landscaping Project this Sunday 1-3 p.m.

img_0532It’s our weekend to give back!

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.

Scouting for Food

This Saturday we will have our collection day for Scouting for Food.  We will meet again at GBE at 9 a.m.  After collection, we will sort the food at GBE before handing it over to the Boy Scouts for transport to the food bank.  We need boxes.  Please bring any boxes that are about the size of a standard paper ream box.  A great turn out Saturday morning will go a long way in making this process go quickly and smoothly.  Remember, the kids get a service project patch for Scouting for Food!

Earn your Recruiter Patch!

Did you know your Cub Scout can earn a special Recruiter Patch for helping to bring new members into the Pack?  We have many new families moving into our area, so help spread the word about scouting and earn a patch at our September Pack Meeting.  Pack 1863 will also have a table set up at the GBE Back to School Nights.  If you know parents who are interested in scouting, please have them stop by and talk with us.
