(A message from Shawn:)

Last night was a great first Pack Meeting, with many more to come!

New parents, please do not hesitate to ask us any questions that come up. I know it is overwhelming at first as it is a lot of new information all at one time. Once the year starts rolling along, everything starts falling into place and makes a lot more sense.

We have extra activities on the weekends scheduled throughout the year. (See the calendar above for details.) None of these activites are required, but all of which should be a lot of fun and are designed to create a more enriched Scouting program. We tried to make sure there were things throughout the year so that those who might not make some of the activities will have opportunities later to go to other activities. For instance, we have the Bovay campout in November, and we will have the USS Lexington campout in February. Both should prove to be excellent opportunities for the Scouts. All Scouts are welcome to attend both events or either event….whichever schedules allow.

As we did last night, we are hoping to have a few minutes during the Pack meeting each time to try to get out announcements and answer questions, so please do not hesitate to ask anything during that time as well.

I would much rather you ask, than for you to not be informed and miss something.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to an exciting year of Cub Scouting! Our recruiting rally was a huge success – we recruited over 30 new Scouts into Pack 60 this year.

Parents, there are many opportunities to volunteer and share your time and talents with the Pack. Please email Shawn or your den leader if you can help fill a position, teach a belt loop, organize an outing or community service project, or help in any other way. Just a few hours of help is a huge contribution.

Our email list is now set up. You should be receiving emails from Shawn and your Den leader regarding upcoming events and Pack news. If you have not received any emails from us lately, please email mn (at) nimocks (dot) com and tell me which den your son is in, and I’ll get you added to the appropriate list.

Upcoming events:

— Parent planning meeting is Thursday, September 22 at 6:30, in the youth room at the rear of Christ United Methodist Church. Park in the back. ALL PARENTS WELCOME – please come give us your input and help us plan the year!

— Our first Pack meeting is Monday, September 26th at 7:00pm in the youth room. All Scouts and families are welcome.

— Inner Space Caverns trip – Saturday Oct 8th. Please sign up and pay at the pack meeting. $11/adult and $6/child, families welcome.

See you soon!

We had a great family campout this past weekend! The weather was simply fantastic and everyone had a great time. If you couldn’t make it, please come next time – Camp Bovay is a great facility and the boys really loved it.
