 It's December!!!!  How did that happen already? We have one more den meeting and one more Pack meeting before the year is out for the holidays!  Next Monday, December 12 will be our last regular Den meeting for the year and December 19 will be our  Christmas Pack meeting!  You don't want to miss out!  We will then have a couple of weeks off to enjoy the holidays and then we start back January 9th.  It's going to be a busy couple of months with Scouting for Food and Pine Wood Derby and selling Scouting Adventure Cards! 

Our trip to Kennedy Space Center is right around the corner!  And we'll follow that up with a camping trip to Morrow Mountain State Park in May.  

There is still time to order a Pack Tee Shirt!  Click here to order:    https://www.customink.com/fundraising/pack-109-bound-for-nasa-shirts?utm_campaign=desktop-campaign-page-share-v3&utm_content=pack-109-bound-for-nasa-shirts&utm_medium=social&utm_source=copy-link

 Hello Scout Family! I hope you all enjoyed Halloween last night! Thankfully the rain went away just in time for trick or treating! Just a few updates coming your way.


November 7 - Den Meetings per normal schedule

November 12- Bird House Building with BASF. There are still a few spots open. There is an address correction: we will meet at 3304 Westinghouse Blvd. at 9am that Saturday. Details: We have been invited to work with scientists from BASF to build birdhouses for the nesting bluebirds that they have seen on site. The Sustainability Team at BASF will cut and prepare the materials for 30 scouts to each build a birdhouse. These will then be mounted on poles and placed around the BASF property to increase their Wildlife Habitat contribution. The time spent here will go towards conservation/service hours. And for Wolf, Bear, Webelos and AOL, this would count as the conservation project for your World Conservation Badge. Siblings may attend, but the program and birdhouse building is for cubscouts only. To sign up go to link in your email.

November 14 - Den Meetings per normal schedule

November 21 - No meetings due to Thanksgiving week

November 28 - Pack Meeting focusing on First Responders

December 2 - Christmasville Parade!!!!! We have registered our Pack to be part of the parade! Only 50 cubs are permitted to walk the parade per the Christmasville rules. Sign ups will be available starting next Monday on a first come - first serve basis. Pay attention to your emails next Monday for that sign up! Parade rules: 1. You MUST be in full Class A uniform to walk. 2. You MUST be able to walk 1.5 miles for the entire route. 3. Parents, do not assume you will be able to walk with your scout. We can only have about 10 leaders/adults walking. Parents will drop off their scouts at the beginning of the route near Winthrop and pick them up at the end of the route near Fountain Park.

April 1 - Kennedy Space Center trip. We still have a few spots open for our NASA trip. If you would like to attend, please send me an email with names attending and food allergies. Remember that any children attending MUST be between the ages of 7 and 14. This is a Kennedy Space Center rule, not ours. And every cub must have a parent or legal guardian attending with them.

This coming Monday is our Trunk or Treat party! Both parents and scouts should come dressed in their favorite costume! Please try not to scare the little ones though! 

Gold Rush is next weekend!!!!!  Information has been emailed out to everyone attending.  We can't wait to have fun with our Pack....and the other 1150 people coming!  

We will have our regular den meetings on the 24th. There will be no meeting on Oct 31 so that our kids can do trick or treating on their own.


There are still a few spots left for NASA. I am closing down the sign up form as we are getting real close to our max number. If you haven't signed up but would like to attend please email me and we'll check availability.

 Good morning Scout Family!!! I hope you are all doing great on this beautiful fall day! All dens are meeting tonight. Today is the last day to sign up for Gold Rush! If you are planning on paying by check or cash please bring that tonight and bring to me in the lounge area. If you are paying by credit card please check your account on Troop Web Host and get that paid. I will be sending out a sign up sheet soon for all of you attending so that we can share the duties of prepping food, cooking and cleaning up. More details on actual campout will come this week as well. 


NASA sign ups are going strong!!!! There are only 38 spots left! 

In two weeks we will be having our October Pack Meeting - Trunk or Treat! Please sign up to either decorate or bring some treats! This cannot be a successful event without you! We need more volunteers for decorating car trunks and more volunteers to bring in candy or treats for the kids to enjoy.

Tee shirt sales have closed and should be delivered to the church around the 17th of this month. I still have a few of the older design pack shirts available. If you are interested please ask me at the meeting. And I'm sure we will do another order of the regular shirts in the spring.

Popcorn!!!!! I hope you all are selling selling selling!! The money raised helps our pack greatly! If we do not sell well this year we will have to institute Pack Dues to help cover all of the awards our scouts are earning. To give you an idea, each award costs our pack around $2. That adds up very quickly!!! If you have any questions on how to sell or anything popcorn....just ask! And there are many spots left to sell at storefronts! Check our Trails End app! Winner of this weeks sales will be announced tonight!

Tonight after our den meetings at 7:45pm is the first meeting of our SuperNova group!!! If you are interested in STEM and would like to learn more on earning your SuperNova medal, come tonight and check it out!!!!!! Meeting will be in Wesley Hall where the Wolves currently meet.
