CUB  SCOUT  ROUNDUP
September 11    6:30-7:30pm
ELMWOOD SCHOOL GYM
ACCEPTING ALL STUDENTS
PUBLIC,  PRIVATE, CHARTER OR HOME SCHOOLED
YOU  ARE   INVITED

We are starting to receive calls from families wishing to join our pack.  Our first ROUNDUP meeting will be September 11.  This meeting will be orientation for our new recruits and their families. All our regular pack members are also very welcome 
 We will have  build kits on hand for  an  activity.   Our first  scheduled meeting with the whole pack will be September  18.

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
scout
We will need an accurate headcount first.  Books as well as dens are age coordinated.
 Third: New families need only $8.00 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

Recruits Needed

Attention Colt and Windemere Park Charter Academy students:  Kindergarten and First grade students are needed for the Tiger dens. An exciting year ahead is planned. We hope many new families can join us.  Registration is $25 for Jan - Dec (prorated).   Pack 386 has no weekly/monthly dues and reduced registration fees with popcorn sales!


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 in the events and meetings they possibly can, whether they are registered leaders or not.
