This is your opportunity as a Boy Scout to mentor Cub Scouts.
Remember when you were a Cub and those Boy Scouts came to your meetings… to tell stories and teach skills. Now it’s your turn to be a good example, someone to look up to, someone to respect.
Cub Scout Pack 160 needs your help:
Speak with Mr. D’Elia, Ms .Meditto and Mr. Rich right away at the next Troop Meeting.
Wednesday, September 19th is the next Pack meeting. (3rd Wednesday of every month) and weekly Den meetings.
September 29-30 at Camp Lackawanna (Tunkhannock) is the Pack 160 campout with events we need Den Cheifs to help with (Rocket Station, Gaga Ball, Scout Skills, Building Rockets).
Look for the next post on Den Chief training – October 13.
