A reminder that flags need to be picked up this weekend. The link for signup is https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/20F084EABAE2AA2F58-20231 We need as many volunteers as possible to help set out and pick up flags. Several families had to do 3 routes to make sure everything was covered. This is our primary fundraiser that helps pay for all the fun activities we do. Please help out if you can, many hands make light work. Nicole Whittaker Pack 359 Committee Chair

Good afternoon! I hope all of our scouts have enjoyed the start of school! Thank you to those who have signed up to deliver flags for Labor Day. We still have 13 routes that need to be covered. On average, routes are 8-12 flags and usually only take 60-90 minutes to deliver. You can sign up for a route at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f084eabae2aa2f58-2023#/ If we do not have enough volunteers, we may be forced to hire some help, reducing our overall budget for our yearly activities. If you have questions about how to deliver flags or the flag program in general, please reply to this email, and we’ll gladly answer your questions.
Hello Scouting Families! I hope everyone had a great first day back at school! In less than two weeks, on Saturday, August 26th, flags will need to go out for Labor Day and 9/11. We are approaching the process a bit differently this time around. Rather than zones based on your Scout’s Den number, we have put together a SignUp Genius with all Route numbers and Neighborhood names. We hope this will make it easier for more families to participate. Sign up will be on a first-come basis, so if you have a preference, please complete your signup ASAP using the link below: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f084eabae2aa2f58-2023#/ Our flag subscription fundraiser pays for all of our Scout’s belt loops and awards, helps fund our campouts,…
