Great Lift Off Meeting - see you in September!

Posted on Sun, Aug 28, 2016

Please see the pack calendar and stay tuned for Den leader email on first den meeting

We had an awesome lift off this year! It was a great start to a year with rocketry as a theme. Thanks to all the parents, leaders and families that were there and participated to make this a fun event for the scouts.

Special recognition again to Richard Fusco who received his Tiger rank badge at this meeting.

If you are receiving this message as a forward, know that we are working to add you to the systems and general distros as soon as possible. A couple quick notes:

  • Next Pack Meeting: Sunday September 11, 2 PM, Prince of Peace Catholic Commnunity, room  = St. James  Hall
    • Popcorn fundraiser kickoff and confirm locations and participants in "Up Front Sales"
    • Confirm den leaders - volunteers required at Tiger and Bear level
    • Boys should be in Class A shirts (blue for Tiger to WEBLOS I, TAN for Arrow of Light) - Uniform inspection!
    • Flag Ceremony will be modeled by the Arrow of Light Scouts
    • Bring All Scout applications and adult applications.  If you did not get application, we will ask you to complete it at this time
    • Bring your check, cash or credit for Pack dues of $85.00.. please see "Useful Documents" at, see menu at bottom of screen. Select "Where the Money Goes" for an overview of how dues and fundraising support pack operations
    • We will recite the Cub Scout Oath, Pledge, go over the sign, handshake, and meaning of WEBLOS - these items will be tested at Campout for all new scouts to acheive Bearcat badge
    • All Scouts should have completed unit in front of scout manual on child safety from abuse
    • Sample of campout supplies will be reviewed
  • Fall Camput - Septemeber 23-25, campgrounds TBD
  • Den Meetings:

Invitre more new scouts:Every Scout who invites a friend to the September Pack meeting that joins cub scout gets a commemorative Circle 10 patch. A scout who brings 2 new joiners gets a very cool complimentary patch that locks into the aforementioned like a puzzle piece. These will be very rare items for those scouts who go all out to bring in new joiners

Uniforms: We want scouts in Class A uniforms for pack meetings, and field trips. To be in Class A uniform., new scouts should venture with parent to the SCOUT SHOPS ( See below). Obtain the following items:

1. Dress uniform blouse - blue for Tiger - Webelos I (1st through 5th grade)

2. Scout uniform Belt for his rank (Tiger = 1st Grade, Wolf = 2, Bear = 3, WEBELOS = 4, Arrow of Light = 5)

3. Cub scout manual specific to your son's rank (Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos  - same manual with Arrow of light )

3. Optional item: Scout uniform ball cap

4. Since you are voluneteering to help the pack go, go ahead and get your Adult leader uniform (tan) - I recommend the ones that are vented, When doing so let them know pack, and whether you are an arrow of light recipient or received any religious awards while you were in cub scouts (if applicable) - they will find the appropriate uniform knots. Remember that in scouting the accomplishments are about the scouts... but we keep them aligned to the philosophy that merit badges are awarded for their work by modeling correct display of the uniforms ourselves.

  • Do not buy (unless you need an extra): Scout neckerchief (we passed these out in May and have a pile of them for new scouts)
  • Also, please do not buy scout pocket knives until your son is  Bear rank scout and has completed knife safety course (Bear Claws unit)

Tell them you are with Pack 404, and that your scout's den is as follows: Tiger (den 4) Wolf (den 2) Bear (den 14) Webelos (den 13) Arrow of Light (den 7)
