Hello to all BEAR Families!!
Hopefullly you have gotten “in the groove” of school/work/life craziness and had a great weekend. We are gearing up for a super Scouting year with a Leader's meeting tonight, recruitment events this week, and DEN Meetings starting back after that – see the schedule of events below!! All the BEAR Scouts I've seen have grown a mile this summer – time to see if those uniforms still FIT!!!
Monday, Sept 13 at 6:30 – Den Leader Meeting at WUMC – open to Den Leaders and any Den 4 Parents who would like to step into an Assistant Den Leader role. Several of you hang out with us at every meeting already – might as well make it official – good training to get ready for moving up to Scout Troops in just a few years (and you get the cool patch and some of the Den Leader Perks as well!) This could be really helpful this fall as I'm handling the home front while Tracy is deployed with FEMA to the New Orleans area. Some Dens have more than one Assistant Den Leader – any Volunteers?
FLAG Pick up – THANK YOU to the Beaton, Lupton, Preusse and Blackmon scouts and families for getting the flags out for Patriots day!! Ben and the Czalpa family now have a “flag bearing” vehicle and want to help, but need to go with an experienced flag team to learn the ropes. Kacie's email is firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone can contact her to team up.
If your family delivered some flags, are you and your scout able to pick up the flags you put out? We need to pick them up this week and then we are good until Veteran's Day in November! The church will be open today and tomorrow at 6:30 for you to drop off flags if that fits into your schedule. If not let me know and I can arrange to get the church open.
THIS Thursday, Sept. 16th – Ice Cream Social Whitehouse City Park, 6PM bring a friend!
This Saturday 9/18 – Mrs. Gigi will be at the recruitment and flag sale table at the Whitehouse farmers market 9:00 AM to noon. Come check out the great items for sale and say HI to prospective parents and members of our Den 4 family!
Monday Sept. 20th – ALL parent meeting information meeting at the church at 6:30 PM. This is for new and returning parents. A movie will be set up for any kiddos that need to tag along.
TUESDAY, September 28 – First ‘Official' Den Meeting at WUMC – starting at 7pm to miss practices & football 🙂
Getting excited for an AWESOME BEAR YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
