The summer is over


Hello Pack 100 Families,

On behalf of the Pack Committee, we hope you have had a great summer!  As we prepare to move into the new school year, we wanted to ask that each of you consider the following ways you can help continue to make Pack 100 the great Pack it has been for the past 50+ years!  Our events can only continue if someone steps up to lead them.  The following positions are activities/positions that are being held by those in the Webelos 1 den – who crossover in February.  They would LOVE to share our experiences and knowledge with you while they are still here.   As you know by now, the Pack can only go with volunteers leading us.  With everyone taking a small piece it is very manageable – and your scout loves seeing you involved!  Speaking personally, you will get so much more out of scouts than you put in it.   Thank you to:

Advancements – Jane H. and Lori S.

Religious Emblems Coordinator – Jacquie W.

Ashton Elementary Contact – Molly H. will work with the Cubmaster and Mr. Renouf in promoting scouting at Ashton Elementary including Scout Night, Kindergarten Bike Rally, Flag Ceremonies, sending flyers home to kindergarten boys at year-end and other events that may come up throughout the year.

Scouting for Food – Coordinate our efforts with dropping off bags and picking them up. I have EVERYTHING you need to get you started. I will help you this year!! Easy, traditional Scouting service project!

Pinewood Derby – Coordinate a committee for this time-honored scouting day of racing! Again, our experienced leaders will walk you through the whole process.

Raingutter Regatta – Coordinate this fun-filled day. Nancy V. will be your contact due to her relationship with the Sarasota Sailing Squadron.

Outings Chair (Pack Committee Position) – A fun, but big job! You are responsible (along  with input from Pack Committee) for our fun pack outings (camping, hikes, etc). Robin M. will train you!

Popcorn Kernel (Sheri C.)– Coordinate our popcorn fund raising efforts. Mike M. can teach you all you need to know about this position. Without  funds the Pack cannot afford important things like repairs to the trailer, patches and awards. Traditionally the Pack has paid for registration fees for adult leaders. Popcorn sales is our one and only fund raiser for the year. We must be successful.  Popcorn Kernel training is August  23rd.

Treasurer (Pack Committee Position) – Makes deposits, write checks, reconciles and manages our Pack checking account. Mike M. will teach you how!

Committee Chair (Pack Committee Position) – Calling and presiding Pack Leader meetings, assist Cubmaster and committee to plan and carry out the Cub Scout program in the Pack.

Cubmaster – Michael H.

Michelle D. will be moving on to Adult Leader Training District Level and to serve as staff for Wood Badge.

Pack Committee Positions are voting positions and you would attend Pack Committee Meetings on the 2nd Thursday of every month at STM.

Our first Committee meeting of the year – Thursday, August 14th, at 6:30 PM in the Spirit Center at St. Thomas More.  ALL parents are invited to attend this meeting as our committee plans the calendar for this year and we can answer any questions about the various positions. More information on Pack Committee Positions can be found by clicking this link or pasting it into your browser:

After the Blue and Gold

Hopefully, everyone had a great time at our Blue and Gold Banquet!  It was a fun evening and is always so exciting to see the scouts receive their rank badges … and a bit emotional sending our Webelos 2 off to Boy Scouts!  Congrats to those five scouts on their next chapter in scouting!  All scouts in attendance will receive a Blue and Gold patch at our March pack meeting.Did you leave something behind at Blue and Gold?  Nancy V. ended up with various uniform parts, scout gifts (water bottles), etc. Let her know if you are missing something! Did you bake a cake? If so, please inform the Advancements Chair, so a Cake Bake Patch can be ordered for you! These are the noted being seen. Please let Nancy V. know if you are not on the list!

  • Josh P.,
  •  Joey H.,
  • Lewis S.,
  • Hunter C.,
  • Alexander V.,
  • Brennan H.,
  • Grady H.,
  • Robert W.,
  • Brandon W.,
  • Bradley W..

Wondering where to put that new badge and arrow points? Please see the attached guide and feel free to ask the awards chair if you have any questions (Nancy V. pays Children’s World $3 per patch and they know exactly where to sew it on)! You may be thinking … now that my scout has his rank badge, what is next? For the remainder of the year until Crossover in May, Tigers, Wolves and Bears work on their electives to earn beads (Tigers) and arrow points (Wolves and Bears). Webelos keep working on Activity Badges. The Advancements Chair will be awarding beads and arrow points at the March, April and May pack meetings. After that, you move on to your next rank and it all starts again! Spring Break is right around the corner! Check out the Family Travel Belt Loop if you are going on a trip … a great, easy way for your scout to earn this belt loop. Remember, you can work on belt loops and pins as well as electives on your own outside of den meetings. Just work with your den leader on the requirements he/she has for showing the work. Here is the link to the belt loops page. Simply click on the belt loop and it will show you the requirements. That’s all for now! A lot more fun things coming up this spring … NASA Camping, Earth Day Camping, Cub-O-Ree and Raingutter Regatta (Pinewood Derby with sailboats powered by your lung power and a straw!) just to name a few! It all culminates with our Crossover Ceremony on Saturday, May 17th when the scouts officially graduate up to their next rank. Have a great week!  And, as always,Nancy V., the Advancements Chair is here to answer any questions you may have.

I will do all of the registrations for the pack. This event is the weekend after we get back from NASA camping. I know it’s a bit much to camp too weekends in a row.
