Work on "Fun With Family" (pg 88)

With Advancement quickly approaching in May all Wolf Scouts should focus on completing the Fun with Family Section starting on page 88 of the handbook.  We will not have time to complete this section in the Den Meetings.

Also, everyone seems to have the Belt Loop program under their belt.  But did you know... When your child receives his Wolf Badge in May he can start receiving "Arrow Points" that go onto his uniform?  You get Arrow Points by completing "Electives".  They are in the back of the Wolf Handbook.  Don't forget about electives!

First Wolf Mtg Oct 10

The next meeting for our Wolf Den will be 7pm Monday, October 10th at the Church.  This will be the first meeting for our new Wolf Cubs.  The meeting will be somewhat 'organizational' in nature because we count 17 registered 2nd graders who are signed up and ready to start scouting.

We've talked about having one Den Leader with several Assistant Den Leaders comprised of parents.  But that probably won't work because it is hard for 17 families to all agree on meeting on the same day.  It's more likely that we will end up with TWO Wolf Dens - meeting on different nights.  This would require finding another Den Leader, getting them trained at myscouting.org, and then finding them some parents who are willing to assist with the programming.

You have probably heard the phrase that, "this is a good problem to have"?  Well.  We have a good problem.  Hopefully, when we review this months theme, cooperation, we can get moving on a solution.

We will see you October 10th.  Until then, have fun with purpose!

First Den7 Meeting - Oct 12

We currently have 23 third Graders on our rolls.  This creates the need to start a second den of Bear Cubs that will meet on a night that is convenient for the parents.  We are also seeking a Den Leader and an Assistant Den leader for the boys.

The first den is comprised of nine boys who primarily meet after school on a Monday in the library.  The second den will meet on a weeknight of choice and probably starting at 6:30 or 7:00pm.  If your son is not meeting after school please try and make the first meeting which will be held Wednesday, October 10th at 7pm.  The purpose of this meeting is to see when everyone can meet and to express the need for some quality leaders for these boys.

We hope to see all of you on Wednesday!
