A couple of things to remember
One: Have as many of your son's friends join with him as you can.
The more of his friends who are present - the more fun scouts will have.
and, your son will earn his recruiter strip for his scout shirt
Second: The pack treasury will buy the scout books for each
We will need an accurate headcount first. Books as well as dens are age coordinated.
Third: New families need only $9.00 for each new scout
Then we will all be paid up through Dec 31st.
cost is $25 per year
Scout parents: Please bring in any outgrown scout shirt you may be willing
to donate to a new incoming scout
We still have two youth large shirts - ask Al
We have many students from different schools.
Remember, scouting is not school district sensitive. Our parents adhere to a quote from "Field of Dreams"....
"If you build it they will come."
Parents just have to be willing to drive to our meeting place
JOIN CUB SCOUTS
Lots of fun stuff coming! We continue to recruit 1st through 5th
graders. Many events are being planned.
Note: scouts registering with the pack before October 10 will receive a fishing rod & reel
One more fishing pole will be at the meeting. We have given out 14 poles thus far. Good going recruiters!
Firehouse night photos have been added

Every night is question and answer night. At the meeting close,
circle up, is the time for everyone to hear the same answer and
ask questions... Everyone has them!
Pack 386 would like for each boy to have a scout shirt. That tends to make them feel part of the group. Regular jeans would be great. A scout shirt would make a great Christmas gift. After getting a shirt, we would like for them to wear it. Scouts act more like scouts!
November 4th is The Next Parent Meeting 6:30 - 7:30 pm
We will meet at the Lansing Mall food Court. We will get a couple of tables well away from others. The place is usually empty. Our five to ten parents are left by our lonesomes! This is the business meeting of the pack. The attending parents decide what to do for the next four weeks. The den leaders of Tigers and Wolves ( grades 1 and 2 ) can ask questions of the other leaders. The den leaders of bears and Webelos ( grades 3-4-5 ) who just did those scout books in the last year or two.
This our First Tuesday meeting. Schedules have allowed that this is the best timeframe to meet. The meeting lasts one hour ( 6:30 to 7:30) and some parents bring their kids. The kids play on a separate table but very close to us. Food is available as well as soft drinks.
Everyone seems intimidated by these terms, as a result this is not well attended and therefore less new ideas surface.
Our program as in other student programs, is parent driven. A general outline comes to us thru the books but the fun stuff --- WE ( all of us!) MUST DECIDE WHAT WE WANT TO DO. Parents who were either boy or girl scouts know their leaders always had stuff for them to do. What they probably don't realize is that their parents did this too. We put four weeks of content together in this one hour. See our calendar for themes.
To Be A Scout Leader ( a parental safeguard )
All Scout leader applicants submit a form similar to the youth form, but for one additional page. Leaders must list their community associations, drug and criminal histories, and references. This page is submitted to the FBI and any unusual entries/hits & will be reviewed before an applicant is accepted into leadership. Also all scout functions must be attended by at least two registered/accepted leaders. Leaders and scouts must be in full view of all other attendees. Pack 386 wants all parents to be at all the events and meetings they possibly can, whether they are registered leaders or not. Tigers ( 1st graders ) must have a parent of guardian with them at all events. This rule makes sense because most Tigers are very timid, even of their classmates. Comfort comes with time. and a shirt helps
Tuesday Nov 4th
Planning for a Halloween
party has gone well. Party is
Oct. 30th. at the school gym.
Costumes would be great.
Recruit a friend - get a
recruiter strip for your
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 another
recipe that your cub
scout can help with:
Brown 1 lb. ground beef
Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup Ketchup
Bring to a boil then
simmer 10 -15 minute
. Best with hamburg buns
but hot dog buns are less
sloppy. The key is to watch
the ketchup separate into
the natural oils and the
spices come out.
You will be amazed at the
Definitely NOT KETCHUP!
