Memorial Day Parade

Posted on May 24 2016 - 9:23pm

Hi everyone! As we get ready for the official kickoff to summer this weekend please remember that the Dallas Memorial Day Parade is Memorial Day, which is this coming Monday! We will meet at the Dallas American legion at 8:30am as the parade begins at 9am. We usually are one of the first groups to march so please be there before 9am. Class A uniforms are required, Scouts can wear their new Den colors if they have them. Sunglasses and hats are acceptable, especially if it is sunny. Water will be available to keep Scouts hydrated. I hope to see everyone there to pay respect to the soldiers that have defended our freedoms. The parade is usually over around 11am-12pm so there will be plenty of time to make it to picnics or BBQ's after the parade. If you have any questions please feel free to contact either your Den Leader or myself. Thank you!      -  Cubmaster Josh

Hi everyone! My apologies that I was late putting an announcement up as I was not feeling well the last few days. But right now we are all looking to the future! Adults and kids are both having dreams of warmer weather and summer fun! So remember that at our Pack Meeting April 22nd camp signups and money is due. It is a great way to enjoy the outdoors during summer and for Parent and Pal Weekend it's a great way to get some time with your kids away from those electronic devices! Another fun summer activity is catching a baseball game and you can signup for that at the next Pack Meeting as well. That includes a unique opportunity to campout in the outfield of a baseball stadium! That is a story that will be worth telling! Speaking of our Pack Meeting April 22nd, a reminder that it will be at Camp Orchard Hill located at 640 Orange Road in Dallas, PA. If you are unsure of how to get there please do not hesitate to contact your Den Leader or myself and we will get you directions. This will be an exciting experience and we have fingers crossed that it won't snow! As we wind down the regular Scouting year (and the school year!) don't forget to mark on your calendar all of the summer activities that we have planned. Let's keep active and get outside, it's going to be warmer soon!     -   Cubmaster Josh
