Webelos 2

Pack 540’s Web II den is comprised of boys in fifth grade coming from Due West, Hayes, Bullard and Vaughn Elementary.  Currently, our den has 17 members – a crew of spirited young men with lots of energy!

Meetings: Our den meetings are now the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm at Due West United Methodist Church (DWUMC) in the Scout Hut.  We know that boys often also participate in one or more sports or other activities and conflicts happen. We get it. It’s okay! Scouts can work on many achievements at home so they can still work through the program.

Upcoming den meeting dates for the 2017 school year are as follows:

 

Tuesday, September 12 – 6:30 pm

*NO MEETING THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 25 DUE TO FALL BREAK

Tuesday, October 10-6:30 pm

Tuesday, October 24-6:30 pm

Tuesday, November 14-6:30pm

Tuesday, November 28-6:30 pm

Tuesday, December 12-6:30pm

NO MEETING DECEMBER 26 DUE TO CHRISTMAS BREAK

Pumpkin Unload at DWUMC – October 1st and 15th at 5 pm                                                      This is a great activity that the Pack participates in every year.  The boys have a blast unloading mountains of pumpkins.  The DWUMC pumpkin patch benefits the youth ministry.

October 13-15: Silver Comet Webelos Woods at Woodruff Scout Camp  (weekend camping in Blairsville) – Note: a parent must attend with your cub scout. This is a great introduction to Woodruff for the boys.  This is where they can attend sleep awaysummer camp  in summer 2018 once crossing over to Boy Scouts. More information/sign up to follow.

March 2, 2018 – Blue & Gold Banquet in the Family Life Center at DWUMC                     SAVE THE DATE! Annual Blue & Gold banquet where the boys will receive their achievements for the year. This is a great opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments! We will also have the crossover ceremony for our Web II’s (fifth graders) who will be transitioning from Cub Scouts and crossing over to Boy Scouts.  The entire family is welcome to attend (grandparents too)! Class A uniform (blue/tan shirts).  Dinner will be served.

June – Silver Comet North Cub Scout Day Camp June 4-8, 2018.     SAVE THE DATE!!!!!!                                                                                                                                          Our Web II’s (rising 6th graders) will be old enough to serve as den chiefs/red shirts at day camp 2018.  They must be registered with an area Boy Scout Troop to participate in day camp as a boy scout.

Den Leader: Our Web II den is led by Mr.  Todd Markwald.  Todd is a retired United States Air Force Test Pilot, currently working for the Defense Contract Management Agency at Dobbins ARB.  Todd is assisted by his wife, Angie Markwald, along with our Cubmaster, Chris Hannah.  Contact Todd at tmarkwald@aol.com.

Parent Involvement: The boys will have a much better scouting experience if parents (dads and/or moms) get involved!  What does that mean?  Help out at den meetings with our activity and go on our camping trips and other outings.  We have some great stuff planned for this year, so take advantage of it!
