August Summer Pack Events

Two dates for our August Pack Meetings are drawing nearer! As back-to-school preparations are ramping up, we want to remind you of a few service projects we are beginning. Please see below for these fun, yet helpful dates. Remember, we promise “to help other people at all times!”

SATURDAY, August 8th, 9am: Due West Elementary Service Day

Grab your gardening gloves and a rake! We’re headed back to Due West Elementary for a service day to help them prune back the monster weeds! Due West is thrilled at our offering of a bit of yard work and has detailed what they would love help with.

It’s very important to dress properly for yard work, wear a hat and sunscreen, bring gloves and of course, a mask. We will also practice social distancing, just like at the lake. Please bring the following personal gear and if you have them, yard tools.

Personal Gear: Gloves, water, sunscreen, hat, mask, hand sanitizer, snack.

August: Senior Pen Pal Reach Out

Pack members will draw/paint/write letters in order to reach out to senior citizens during the pandemic. This will be an individual project done from home and we will compile photos of our Scouts in action. It might be nice to include a personal signature to a resident you know or a reach out to a new pen pal!

  • Please create something to send: Young scouts may want to make a photo or collage. Older Scouts may be able to write a letter or a short story.
  • Take a photo of your Scout holding the item/letter in their Class A or Class B uniform.
