Parent meeting was attended by 6 parents.

   We will do it again next year.  We thank all of our

              members for a superb job.


        Oct 29th  was our

     Halloween Party
    Everyone seemed to have a good time.
A couple of pictures have been added to our albums 
             link in upper left corner - this page.
     November 12 is a flag
retirement ceremony at Mr. 
    Estes' property at 6:30
  (across the street from Delta Mills Park)
  Pack 386 is a "Hooked on
   on Scouting" pack. This means all new recruits to this pack will receive a new fishing pole and tackle  box.               JOIN SOON
  Thirteen awarded since September 17 !!!
special: thru Dec 15, 2015 a recruiting scout
will get a REPELA LURE for his fishing pole
   as well as a scout shirt recruiter strip.
Last year  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.
The Elmwood School Gym is a large facility
and can easily handle all our scouts. ( It is much larger than someone's family room or church basement ).

   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
scouts...let me know when you want another recipe.

   The Scout Shop is now on Marketplace Road.
      1 block past Lowe's. ( off west Saginaw )

        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.

      With our recent recruits  we have 31  cubs.  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
-What did the duck say when she bought lipstick?
  put it on my bill.
-Why was six afraid of seven?
 Seven "ate" nine.
-Why did the school kids eat their homework?
 The teacher said it was a piece of cake.
-What is the temperature of a Ton-Ton?
  Luke warm.
-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.
                 Did you know.......

Listening to music actually changes your perception of time - makes waiting seem

Upcoming Events

Fun at Every Turn


 Cub Scouting is bigger than a        school district.
 November 12 is flag retirement night.
It is also school conference night for the Waverly Schools. Please try to get your
conference in early.  We will start our
ceremony about 6:45 pm. This is a very solemn ceremony. Our pack veterans will
have a place of honor.
   Scout Leaders are moms and dads who have submitted an  F B I  check  to insure  they can be interfacing with 
                       the scouts.            
 We would like for every parent to be a  scout leader. Your schedule allowing?
    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
             All our scouts meet
            only one night a week 

            Thursday nights- 6:30 - 7:30
      is scout night for the Delta Township

      Same night   
                    Same time 
                                  Same location for all.

Several new scouts and parents signed     up so far      Welcome aboard.
 The reason we sell popcorn:
   We want to price families  
into scouting. All of our profit    is used on our scouts, their  
     siblings, their family.
  Leaders do not take pay for directing this parent lead                    pack.
  Popcorn enables families to      pay for scout registrations.
   At this time we are about 40 families strong!
