The updated order form is attached – please print and fill it out for your Scout (T-shirt for the Scout is included as part of dues) and also add in any extras you want. Please drop the forms with Brian Greenfest – at his house (address on the form) by December 5. If you’re ordering any extras beyond your one per Scout, please include a check to “Pack 436.”

    Parent Volunteers Thanks to all the parents who have sign up for volunteer roles; if you haven't done so please do. Let Eric (committechair@pack436.com) know if you have an idea but don't see anything that looks like it will fit the bill, or if you have any questions about what's involved. You can find the link at signupgenius. In particular, we're still looking for a few more signups for the Pinewood Derby and Blue & Gold.

    If you have questions, or you're interested in doing something that doesn't appear there, or if you see something you want to help with that is full, please contact Eric Victory at committechair@pack436.com.

    You'll note that for the activities requiring multiple people, the sign-up doesn't break down individual tasks - we'll leave it to the group of volunteers to decide how to split up the activities. We'll be doing sign-up again this year via SignUpGenius. Please visit the following link: www.signupgenius.com/go/8050545A5A96-cubscout2, which shows the positions available(and those already filled). If you have taken a look and have questions about what's available and/or when teh activity would happen, or if there's something else you have in mind to volunteer for, please contact Eric Victory.

    Regatta Roundup– Congratulations to ALL the crews of Pack 436 on another exciting Regatta last meeting, and a special thanks to Admiral Meyer and Mr. Draisen for putting it together.

    Scouting for Food– Once again, Pack 436 did a GREAT job collecting food for the annual “Scouting for Food” campaign – we collected about 150 bags of food from around the neighborhood. Thanks to all who participated. This is a genuine service at a time when many families are in need.
