The Weekly Scout 2/20

We have a few things this week.

Spring Break Campout

If you are going on the spring break Campout to Possum Kingdom State Park here’s a couple things. First, you must register on the pack website by March 1st. Also we will be having a pre-Campout meeting on March 3rd in the Sanctuary at 6:30pm this will be a 10 minute meeting however, this meeting is extremely important, because not only will we go over the assigned campsites and details of the Campout, but because this Campout is more then two nights each scout and family member attending must have a pre-Campout physical (Health Form C) completed by a doctor. We will have a doctor at this meeting on March 3rd to complete this. If you can not attend the meeting we will have Health Form C available to pick up at the February 28th den meeting and you must have it completed and turned in at the March 7th den meeting to go on the Campout. Once again, Health Form C must be completed by each person attending the Campout or they can not go on Campout.

If you have any questions about the physical, Health Form C, or Campout as your den leader or feel free to ask Nicole or me. At den meetings Nicole is with the Tigers and I am generally with Lions and try to make a round to each den.

Scout Sunday

Scout Sunday is February 27th. Scout Sunday is to recognize the contributions of young people and adults to Scouting. It is also a chance for the congregation of the church that charters, supports, and provides us a place to meet together to see who we are! The Whitehouse United Methodist Church is extremely good to our pack and without the members of the church there might not be a Pack 359. SO PLEASE join me on February 27th, wear your uniform and show the members of UMC that we are thankful for them and attend the Sunday morning worship service at 9:30am.

If you can not attend church services at UMC_Whitehouse please have your Scout wear their uniform to your church services. If you do not attend the UMC service please take a picture of your scout in uniform and show it to either Nicole, Susan, or myself so we can get you your 2022 Scout Sunday patch.

Pinewood Derby

Also, reminder that the District Pinewood Derby is February 27th in Bullard at 1pm until races are over. If you advanced to district… I apologize but we have had some mixed signals about checking in cars before races begin. I recommend showing up by 12:30 to check in your car and get seated for races.

There are 3 scouts that could not attend our Pinewood Derby and did not get their 2022 Pinewood Derby patch. If you are one of those 3 scouts please come give Susan, your den leader or me your scouts name Monday and we will get their patch.

Flags for Presidents Day

Flags need to be picked up between Thursday and next Monday and returned to the church.
