Cub Scout Pack XXX School Night For Scouting Welcome! Please sit at a table marked with the school grade your son is in. If there is no room at the table(s), sit at a table near them.
The two raised fingers of the Cub Scout sign stand for two parts of the Promise - “to help other people” and “to obey.” They look like a wolf’s ears, ready to listen to Akela. This sign is also used to call the attention of the Pack. When this sign is displayed, all persons present (including Scouts, Parents, Siblings, and any one else) are to sit or stand quietly, and place their full attention towards the speaker. MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE!
Please join us in the Pledge of Allegiance

Den Assignments Rank 1st graders are Tiger Cubs 2nd graders are Wolf Cubs 3rd graders are Bear Cubs 4th graders are 1st Year Webelos 5th graders are 2nd Year Webelos Tiger Den A grouping of 4-8 1st grade “boy and parent teams” grouped together. Tiger Dens meet twice a month, with at least one of these meetings being a Discovery Adventure. Cub Den A grouping of 4-8 boys at the same rank (Wolf or Bear). Dens meet once a week, 2-3 times a month. Webelos Den A grouping of 4-6 boys at the 4th or 5th grade levels. These Dens are smaller because of the greater amount of work involved with preparing the boys for the Boy Scout Program. Pack The grouping of all of the Dens and adult volunteers supporting the Dens and Pack. The Pack meets together, usually the third Tuesday of each month at Story cafeteria.
Parents Role in Supporting the Pack Program, Cub Scouting is a family program, Families strengthen Cub Scouting, Cub Scouting strengthens families, Parents support and encourage Cub Scouts to stay involved and as they advance, Parents provide the leadership for the Pack
This is OUR Pack The only way it is successful and the only way it makes an impact in the lives of our boys is US! That means we need the talents of all of us – not just the leaders. The leaders are all here because we want our boys – all of our boys – to have a great scouting experience. The rest of us need to support them and the Pack Program. There are also several positions open on the Pack Committee. Please sign up and help us out!
Den Leader Opportunities We need parents to step forward and volunteer to be Den Leaders for the new dens being formed Den Leaders are the backbone of the Pack organization because they work directly with the boys and help direct Pack activities. Your registration fee is paid by the Pack. You will need to buy uniform and patches. It takes time: Weekly den meeting (1-2 hours each; 2-3 meetings per month) Den meeting preparation (1 hr/wk - plan & use available resources) Monthly Pack meeting (1-2 hours) Monthly committee meeting (1-2 hours) Monthly District Round Table meeting (1-2 hours)
So, Why be a Den Leader? Being a Den Leader does take time. However, consider the benefits: A sense of pride as the Cub Scout grows and receives recognition. An opportunity to share your ideas with other adult leaders. A chance to meet new friends. An opportunity to help the boys learn respect for their environment, country and other people. A chance to do things you have not done in years. BE INVOLVED IN YOUR BOY’S LIFE!
Den Leader Help Training / Pack Trainer Cubmaster and Assistant Cubmaster(s) Other Den Leaders are available to help. Pack Committee members are available to help. Council resources available. District Roundtable meeting every month provides specialized material and ideas. Pack library of reference books, meeting plans, etc. Cub Scout & Webelos Scout Program Helps which has prepared meeting plans for the whole year.

A Boy’s Eyes “I’d like to be a Cub Scout” (His eyes were warmest hue) “I’d like to learn, and play, and build, like Jim and Freddy do.” “I know how to use a hammer, I can drive a nail, If I try. I’m eight years old, I’m big and strong, and hardly ever cry.” I gave him the application and parent-participation sheet. (His eyes were filled with sunshine, He left on dancing feet. Next day, my friend was back again, A dejected little lad. “I guess I’ll skip the Cub Scouts.” (His eyes were dark and sad.) “My mom is awful busy, She has lots of friends you see, She’d never have time for a Den, She hardly has time for me.” “And dad is always working… He’s hardly ever there. To give them any more to do Just wouldn’t be quite fair.” He handed back the papers With dignity of eight years, And smiling bravely, left me. (His eyes were filled with tears.) Do you see your boy’s eyes As other people may? How he looks when you’re “TOO BUSY”, or “JUST HAVEN’T TIME TODAY”? A boy is such a special gift… Why don’t you realize It only takes a little time To put sunshine in his eyes. You say, “I’ll start tomorrow,” But tomorrow is far away, He’s a boy for such a short time, So won’t you start today.
