Lions and Tigers must have their own adult with them for the entire hour. - BSA Rules -
but... we would like all parents to stay.
At the end of each scout meeting, we have parent and scout - Circle Up- for announcements and information sharing.
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 eat but they also like to cook..
We have found out that most scouts really like two or three ingredient recipes and like to make them. Here is a recipe that your cub scout can help with:
Walking Tacos...... takes some prep. time
Brown ground beef -
Have individual sized bags of Doritos, Tostitos or other chips of your choice: one for everyone.
Just before eating
crunch chips , add meat, lettuce, cheese, salsa,
and your other favorites. eat with a spoon
fresh, handy and portable
bag everything separately when going on a hike..
no dishes... no clean up
The Scout Shop is now on Marketplace Road.
1 block south of 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.
BE ACTIVE - WITH YOUR KIDS
With our recent recruits we have 33 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.
This is better than meeting in your basement!
Pack 386 is a family Pack
The whole family is welcome - all the time.
-Take my advice...I'm not using it
-A computer once beat me at chess... but it was no match for
me at kickboxing
-Television may insult your intelligence...but nothing rubs it
in like a computer.
-Ever stop to think...and forget to start again.
-Today a man knocked on the door and wanted a small donation towards the community pool... so I gave him a glass of water.
-He who laughs last.. thinks slowest.
-The grass may be greener on the other side...but at least you do not have to mow it.
-No matter how much you push an envelope... it will still be stationery.
-I find it ironic that red, white and blue stand for freedom...unless
they're flashing on the car behind you.
-Why did the school kids eat their homework?
The teacher said it was a piece of cake.
-What is the temperature of a Taun-Taun?
-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.

Cub Scouting is bigger than a school district.
Our 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.
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. Next meeting May 2, 2017
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 soda or a meal .
Whatever your schedule will allow!
Several grandparents are active.and help provide direction.
The leaders can also carry their den's wants and needs to this meeting. But parents help make for better discussion, and enable us to finish in one hour. The meeting is from 6:30 to 7:30. We usually finish on time.
Scout office provides some general guidelines, but it is the parents who make this a strong program. Usually only 6 or 7 parents show up. Yet this is the life blood of
our program. At the mall, we are away from others.
- The mall directors will turn down the music if we say it is too loud.
Some must bring their children. Those kids sit near us at separate tables.playing/doing school work!
NO ONE HAS TO STAY HOME!
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 location for all.
Several new scouts and parents are signing up this week. Welcome aboard.
In the fall we will sell popcorn. 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-led pack.
Popcorn enables families to pay for scout registrations.
At this time we are about 33 families strong!

-Change is inevitable except from a vending machine.
-I bought a vacuum cleaner six months ago and so far

people who annoy me.
