Pumpkins & Tigers & Bears … Oh my!

Jack-o-lantern Smackdown planning & upcoming Den Meetings …

This is a full pack all-call!

This is going to be a great year. We’ll be hiking, camping, learning first aid, doing some community service and lots of other exciting adventures!  But first up is the planning for our signature fundraiser, the 2016 Jack-o-lantern Smackdown. This fun activity will take place the Saturday afternoon after Halloween and gives us a chance to engage with the community as we watch our decorated pumpkins hurled into smithereens before becoming compose matter to help our environment.  We  are looking forward to everyone participating for the enjoyment of all.

Beyond supporting our annual pack fundraiser, we have a number of exciting den meetings and outings planned as well in the next couple weeks.  Please see the list below,  RSVP and then reach out to the coordinator or leader and ask where you can help!
