April Newsletter

We have been busy in March and April with some fun activities and some service projects.

Early in March we participated in our annual cleanup of portions of the Castlegate community. The Scouts were amazed at the amount of trash they were able to clean up.

The Atrium in the church’s Annex building was our other service project. The Atrium was cleaned out and flowers, plants and new mulch added. The new flowers and plants made the Atrium look absolutely amazing just in time for Easter.

Our fun activities included the Scout Fair at Reliant Park in Houston. Although we did not host a booth, a number of our Scouts did attend this annual event hosted by the Sam Houston Area Council (SHAC). It is a noisy, packed but fun event that everyone seemed to enjoy.

Our spring campout was held at the Bovay Scout Camp south of Navasota. Although it was not as well attended as the fall campout everyone who did attend enjoyed the experience.

Our Pack meeting in April involved the Fellas Pizza Bake in addition to the usual bestowing of awards. The variety of pizzas made by scouts and their fathers was amazing. Awards were given for best savory, best sweet and best decorated pizzas. The Webelos Scouts were the judges and had a wonderful time tasting all the pizzas. After the judging all Scouts and their parents proceeded to finish off the remaining pizzas.

Pack Meeting – Fella’s pizza bake

Posted: April 29th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Don’t forget tonight is the Fella’s Pizza bake. Everyone is to bring their pizza (already cooked) and try to arrive around 6:15. We will get all of the entries lined up for the 4 categories (sweet, savory, decorated, scout spirit) and begin the judging as quickly as possible around 6:30. All scouts will vote for the decorated pizzas and the webelos will judge the taste categories.

The pack will provide plates, but you must provide your own drink. Also, if you have a folding table, you might bring it as we will need several tables, and I am not sure we will have enough already in that room.

We will not be doing awards this time, but just enjoying the pizzas and a few announcements. The May Pack meeting may run a little long as we will have lots of awards at that meeting. 🙂

Looking forward to some tasty creations tonight!

End of Year Party – May 18

Posted: April 8th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Just a heads up…..I have officially confirmed the Adamson Lagoon Pool Party on May 18 from 6:30-8:30. We will have the pool all to ourselves. 🙂

I will need a head count of how many will be attending and how many of those will be swimming (two head counts from each family). Please get that to me as soon as you can. I will need to turn in final numbers around May 1 so they can have adequate lifeguards on duty. So, if you know for sure, go ahead and email me. If you need a little time, I will be sending a reminder in a week or so. 🙂
