In  the past, 99%  of  the den  meetings were held at  Elmwood  School.  Den outings for special trips were the exception. Den leaders and parents make that call.

   Scouts like to cook..

We have found out that most scouts really like two or three  ingredient recipes and like to make them.    Here is dessert recipe that  your  cub  scout  can  help  with:
   

Strawberry shortcake
Place one or two Twinkies in the bottom of a cereal bowl -- ladle thawed frozen strawberries on top.

  ( yellow cake - "whip cream"- strawberries or other fruit )
                 tasty- easy- and very  quick

        Thursday Meeting content
Our den leaders continue to say they need two meetings each month to work on scout book requirements.
But, for the other weeks, the parent meeting tries to come up with, educational- fun - things 
for their kids.

We have a general outline of things past. This helps us create things future.
______________________________________.

Parents plan so scouts and their siblings can enjoy.

Reviews of scout treasury monies, membership, equipment status, special events, fundraising, insure checks and balances and insures our direction is attainable and on track.

BE ACTIVE - WITH YOUR KIDS
_____________________________________
With our recent crossovers  we only have 23  cubs. We start recruiting in August at the school open houses.  We will try to get back up to strength. We have room for many new scouts.  Come and try us out.
_____________________________________
     Please join Pack 386.
   We meet  3 blocks north of the Lansing Mall.
Leaders are in place to work with your son.
All dens ( grades 1 - 5 ) meet in the Elmwood  School gym,.Each meet in a different corner, with their own leader. A family table is set up for moms and siblings who are not working with the boys that night. parents can watch all their kids at once and no one needs to be left at home.

Pack 386 is a family Pack
The whole family is welcome - all the time.
================================
               Laugh Pack
-Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly so they started a fire. Not surprisingly, the craft sank,
proving once again you cannot have your kayak and heat it too.
-There was the scout who sent ten different puns to
his friends, with the hope at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did. 
-What did the ocean say to the beach?
Nothing - it just waved.
-What do you call an alligator in a vest?
An  in-vest-a gator.
================================
                 Did you know.......
Falling air pressure hurts birds ears. So if birds are flying close to the ground it is a 
sure sign that a storm is coming.
Never feed bread to a duck. They cannot digest it. It could kill them.
If you peel a banana from the bottom, you
won't have those stringy things.
Putting a small amount of 7-up in a flower vase will extend the flower's life.
Listening to music actually changes your perception of time - makes waiting seem
shorter.

Scout Leaders are moms and dads who have submitted to an F B I  check  to insure they should be interfacing with  your children.
We would like for every parent to be a scout leader.
There is great satisfaction  working with your son's friends and their parents.
**************************************************
                   Parent Meetings   
  A parent meeting is a "committee" of "parents" who  meet on the first Tuesday of each month and decide what we are to provide for the next four weeks. 
( Five weeks if there are five Thursdays in the month).
Each family is needed at these meetings.  It is important your son's voice is heard.          
       
Only those affiliated with our pack are invited. This means parents, guardians, grandparents, leaders; all those who come to our weekly meetings.

We meet in the Food Court of the Lansing Mall.

Before the meeting we can get a drink or a meal .
         Whatever your schedule will allow!

Several grandparents are active.and provide good  direction for our youth..

The leaders can also carry their den's wants and needs to this meeting. But parents help make a better discussion, and enable us to finish in one hour. The meeting is from 6:30 to 7:30.  We finish on time more times than not.

Scout office provides some general guidelines, but it is the parents who make this a good and                         strong program.  Usually only 6 or 7 parents show up. Yet this is the life blood in doing our program. We are away from all others - The mall directors will turn down the music if we say it is too loud.

Some must  bring their children.  The kids sit near us at separate tables.playing/doing school work.

________________________________________
Most of our meetings are on school nights!
It is imperative that meetings start on time and finish on time. 6:30 generally means 6:25 rather than 6:35
________________________________________
