Hi everyone! We are winding down the Scouting year but there is so much to do this summer! The final Pack Meeting is this Friday at Camp Orchard Hill at 7pm. Please be on time and Scouts in Class A uniforms as we will start with a Pack photo and there is a lot to do at this Meeting. Also remember that money for Camp will be due as well as Scout Night with the Railriders. I would even suggest getting there early if you plan to sign up for any of those events as everyone is usually ready to head home after the Meeting is done. Also a reminder to sign up for the Painting Fundraiser with Bountiful Gifts that will be held June 3rd. If you have any questions feel free to contact myself or your Den Leader before the Meeting so you will be ready. This is my last weekly eblast as my time serving as Cubmaster draws to a close. I hope you have found them informative and at times entertaining. I want to Thank everyone for all of the help, Scouting doesn't work if we don't all participate. I will see everyone Friday!  -    Cubmaster Josh

Starting to Feel Like Summer

Posted on Apr 12 2017 - 8:28pm

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying the warmer temperatures this week. It has me thinking about all the Spring and Summer events we have coming up! Monday April 17th is the Irem Shriners Circus at the Kingston Armory on Market Street in Kingston. The doors open at 6pm but we need to go in all together as a group so I do ask that everyone please be prompt in your arrival. We will meet at the front of the Armory and they will get us inside once everyone is there. If you are running late please text me or call me at #570-332-0215 so we know to wait for you. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Also we have our final Pack Meeting next Friday! It's here all ready but remember that there are several things due that night. We will be collecting money and signups for Camp (whether it be day camp, adventure camp, resident camp or parent and pal); the Railriders money will be due as well. If you are planning to go to Knoebel's for Scout Day please go to their website and purchase tickets. There will also be a painting fundraiser at Bountiful Gifts on June 3rd that you can signup for on their website (tell friends!). The April 21st Pack Meeting will be a big meeting as there will be a lot of things going on and some really important ceremonies as our Arrow of Light will be bridging so it will help if everyone arrives on time and is ready for the meeting to begin. We will work to keep things moving but this is a longer meeting. We will be taking a Pack photo at the very beginning of the meeting so please remember your class A uniforms and have them looking good. Also reminder that the Pack Meeting will be at Camp Orchard Hill. If anyone has any questions feel free to contact your Den Leader or myself.   -    Cubmaster Josh
