Pack Members: We have had a lot of changes lately with the pack. I’d like to recap some of that here and remind everyone what to look for. Hills Chapel has encoutered severe financial hardships and can no longer support the program. Graciously New Covenant United Methodist Church (14514 Lucia Riverbend Hwy, Mt Holly, NC 28120) has allowed us to host some of our next meetings there. We will confirm each meeting before it happens to make sure that everyone knows WHERE we will meet. We will be finalizing the new recharter with Holy Spirit Church on business 16. We will begin the full transition this summer and will need some help during that process. Stay tuned for more info on this later.
In a week we have the Derby Setup and Race at Optimist Club Recreation Center (8160 Optimist Club Rd, Denver, NC 28037). The setup is Friday (3-16-18) night and the race starts at 8am Saturday morning (3-17-18). Make sure you come to the setup Friday so you can pre-weigh in your car and make sure it will pass inspection Saturday morning. We will also have concessions available for Saturday. Small breakfast and lunch items like hot dogs, chips, etc will be for sale for for nominal fee. Please bring several dollars. Please reach out to your den leaders or pack leaders if you have any questions.
Scout discount cards were handed out at the last meeting. These are extremely helpful for the pack. Please arrange to get your 10 cards if you haven’t done so already. If you sell all 10 you will get $10. We only have 1 month to sell them and turn in the funds at the next pack meeting. If you sell more than 10 we have several incentives setup to help offset summer camp.
Finally, we have rescheduled the crossing over ceremony to coincide with the May 1st pack meeting. Please make every effort to be here and support your fellow pack members. This is a big deal.
We will post more info about the spring camp out later too. Keep an eye out for emails about not only the camp out but also all the next meeting locations and changes.
EDIT: Please see the latest newsletter under the ‘Files’ section of the website for some important info.
