Here is a recap of the meeting from 1/8/19:
PACK 83 BUSINESS UPDATES
Due to the length of our Pack Meetings and age range of our kids we have decided to no longer discuss business items at the Pack Meeting. We want to make sure we are giving enough time to our scouts for their advancement recognition, exciting events and WHOLE pack game time.
The Pack meetings are designed to be spent together as a Pack and while we are very active and have a lot going on we believe we have strong communication and can rely on:

Volunteer Help with Pack: We are searching for a new Committee Chair to take over officially 1/1/2020. That may seem far away but you would start working with the new Committee Chair now to help with all the big events so you will be ready to take over 100% next January. If you are interested please email Jennifer Seeley at firstname.lastname@example.org
