Welcome to the Pack!!
Yesterday we had a field trip to Spokane County Fire House 91. All but one boy as able to attend and it was a very good experience for these boys to see how the stations run so smoothly. They started the event by participating in an outdoor flag ceremony, with the Webelos hoisting and lowering the flag. (Wolves requirement 2c, e, f; Bears 3h, i, j; Webelos Citizen 3, 4, 5).
I was reading through the new Cub Scout handbook today in preparation for the next pack meeting when something caught my eye. It was about having a Pack newsletter to keep all the families informed about the events and activities that their boys were participating in from month to month. It said it was vital to good communication and pack unity. That got me thinking about how I could do that and "blog" came to mind. Having a cub scout blog has actually been on my mind for awhile, but seeing it in print with very logical reasons, just facilitated the thought into action. So, being that I am not only the mother of three active cub scouts in the Five Mile Prairie ward, but also the Cub Committee Chairman--I took it upon myself to get this started for our boys. I think that it will be wonderful to see what things they are doing in pictures and also to have this as a quick reference for upcoming activities, awards, and projects. Stay posted for advancements and weekly updates from the dens.
