ARROW Meeting tomorrow – 6:30 at WUMC. Be SURE to click on the to sign your scout up for camping AND add a comment with how many family members will be attending the Family Feast!!

Hi Arrows!

Tomorrow we meet at 6:30 at WUMC to go over campsite selection, bad weather plans and preparation, and tent set up.  If you have a 1 or 2 man tent, you can bring it.  We are also going to go over how to set up the troop tents, packing for camp, cold weather preparation, etc.

Everyone – this is a great camp to attend – both boys and girls – and Scoutmaster Jason said parents can come but DO NOT NEED TO ATTEND.  Please go to to sign up your scout for camping, and ** very important** be sure to add HOW MANY family members will be joining the scouts for Family Feast – they want to be sure there is plenty of food for all!!!

Pack 359 Christmas Caroling – 2:30 pm Saturday at Prestige Nursing Home (where we put out the 30 flags – support for our biggest Flag client!)  I will be in one of FOUR TJC graduations that day (trying to see how much paperwork it will take to take off…) Please come if you can, we need parent help and loud singers, LOL!!!

DEN 4 will meet on the 19th at 6:30 just to assemble and deliver the snack baskets for our Whitehouse Fire Station and Police Station.  Our first responders look forward to our Scout delivery each year! If you can, include a note of Thanks from your Scout and Pack 359 Den 4!!!

Parents met last Tuesday and hammered out some AOL Crossover plans.

We'd like our crossover ceremony to include a meal and an outside / nature element

Our first choice for Crossover Date is Friday, March 22nd. Second is Saturday, March 23rd. – We want ALL our ARROWS to be present, so please check your calendars – this is a BIG DEAL!!  We are going to be hosting the concession stand at Pinewood Derby and have a corporate sponsor!!

  1. Does anyone work for a company that would sponsor a portion of our crossover?
  2. Does anyone have connections with Green Acres, Brookshires, the Boulders, etc. – lakefront properties for a crossover ceremony location?
  3. Every family in our Den seems to be quite busy and anticipate things being even more difficult in the Spring.  All present said that they were willing to cover the cost of their families' and guest's meals at Crossover.  Is that ok for everyone?
  4. Be sure to sign up to camp/attend Troop 359 and 359G Family Feast this weekend.  Details on the link I provided above.

Upcoming local Troop Camping Dates – were in the last Den Update and I printed them for everyone.  Be sure to contact the Scoutmasters to let them know you'd like to visit so they are expecting you!!
