Pack Meeting March 20!

Please join us for our Pack meeting, March 20, 7pm, in the Lincoln School auditorium.

This is a pretty special Pack meeting.  Our Webelos 2 Scouts will receive their Arrow of Light awards and those who decide to continue in Boy Scouts will crossover to their chosen Troop.  We have a beautiful ceremony planned involving all Scouts and Dens, face paint, arrows, and drums.  All Scouts will be awarded their badges during the ceremony even though their Dens are still working on achievements (and we still have meetings in April and May).  You won’t want to miss it!

A light reception will follow to celebrate everyone’s achievements 🙂

We are also seeking 9 volunteers – parents and/or scouts – to play drums during the ceremony.  No prior experience is necessary!  John Milan, a local percussion instructor, will lead and direct you.  Contact Steve if you are interested.

“Invest in Character” Campaign

Dear Pack 4067 Parents, Scouts and Scouters:

Our local Pathway to Adventure Council is currently conducting its annual “Invest in Character” campaign (formerly “Friends of Scouting”). We think you will agree Scouting is important tool as we work to keep our communities great places to grow up and live. The principles we teach through Scouting are as relevant today as they were when the organization began more than 100 years ago. Through the “Invest in Character” campaign, your donation will support your son and his peers in the program by:

  • Maintaining the quality at our camp properties.
  • Funding the program and materials of Cub Scout Day Camp.
  • Contributing to camp scholarships for Scouts who can’t afford camp.
  • Enabling many other year-round programs and activities for your boys to enjoy.
  • Inviting more boys to join the numerous Packs and Troops in the Council.

A representative from the Council will be at our March 20 Pack Night to speak about the “Invest in Character” campaign.  At this time you will have the opportunity to give a donation or make a pledge as we kick off our Pack’s “Invest in Character” campaign.

Thanks for your consideration in this effort. If you have any questions, please reach out to Michael Hornung at Michael.hornung@scouting.org.  Together we can expand Scouting in our community so more boys can join, have fun and grow!

 

Sincerely,

Mary Anne Zeh

Committee Chair, Pack 4067

Adler Deadline Extended

Our 15 reserved slots for Adler are filled.  If you want to go, we can take your request until Monday, March 13, and still have a good chance of adding to our reservation.  At the end of the day March 1, 86 spaces were remaining, but they started that day with 146!  Drop your check off ASAP at the Zeh’s (see previous post for details).  If Adler can’t accommodate us all, the spaces are first come first served.

Hope you can make it!  This looks fun 🙂

February 27 Pack Meeting Update

Reminder:  the Pack Meeting Monday is in the Roosevelt multipurpose room!  Go in the main door by the office, take an immediate left at the first hallway, and the room will be about halfway down the corridor on the left.

We are working on physical fitness achievements with Ms. Harris.  Scouts should bring a pencil, calculator, and stopwatch, and wear gym shoes and athletic pants/clothes.  If you do not have a calculator or stop watch, you do not need to buy one.  We can use the apps on your tablet or smartphone and share ;).  Parents, please be prepared to help with heart rate and moderating stations.

See you Monday!

Adler is on!


We officially have a group reservation for the Adler Overnight Friday, May 5 – Saturday, May 6.  You are welcome to bring your scout and his siblings.  If your family wants to attend, you need to do the following:

  1. Get a check made out to Pack 4067 for $55 per person attending (including adults) plus $11 each if you want a pre-ordered dinner (cheese pizza, cookie, and fountain drink; alternatively, you can buy dinner in the cafe between 5-8pm) to the Zeh’s (836 Bonnie Brae, River Forest) no later than next Friday, March 3.
  2. Complete an online waiver for each child attending here.  Our group name is Cub Scout Pack 67 – River Forest.  Our Leader is Steve Avalos.

We reserved 15 spaces (the minimum for a group) and can add to our reservation but only if the Adler still has room in the program.  The event consistently sells out months in advance and had only 100 spaces left when we made our reservation.  The only way we can guarantee your spot is if you are among the first 15 to drop off a check.

Thank you for your interest and support!

Is your scout missing a uniform shirt?

Check your closets!  The Zeh’s picked up a blue cub scout size small uniform shirt at the end of the Pinewood Derby.  It has the council patch, World Crest Ring Emblem, and our unit number ironed on (no other patches or badges).  If its been a while since you saw your son’s shirt, this might be it.  Email the Zeh’s to claim it and make arrangements for pick up.
