Ranking Ceremony and Rain Gutter Regatta

Posted on Jul 31 2020 - 7:50pm

Reminder that the Scouts will need to have on their class A uniform for the ranking ceremony. We will be doing the Rain Gutter Regatta first so if you want they can were a tee-shirt for that and then put on their shirt, neckerchief and slide before the ceremony. We are asking everyone to bring there own chairs so we don't need to use the rec center chairs. We will be having our Ranking ceremony and  Rain Gutter Regatta on the same day this year. It is this Saturday on 8/1 at the Rec Center. It will start at 4:00PM. This will be an outdoor event. I will also have the Scouts boat at the event for those who have not gotten one yet. The Scout can put it together within 10 minutes and be able to race.

The Pack gets a grant from the Westampton Rec that helps fund some of our activities.

Pack Update

Posted on Jul 6 2020 - 7:40pm

I have started updating the Pack calendar in Scout Book. Please check the calendar weekly as more events keep getting added to it now that we can get back into some type of Scouting program. Do to the in door restrictions with the virus we are trying to keep all of our summer activities outdoors. With any outdoor activity we are dealing with incontrollable weather that could cause us to cancel our plans. I will try to send out an e-blast as soon as possible if we need to cancel an event. Please try to have your Scout complete their rank requirements by July 18th if they already haven't.
