Upcoming Events



Christmas Caroling

We will be visiting the Manor Care facility on Collingwood road Saturday, December 9, at 10 am

Cub scouts singing Christmas carols

We will have hot chocolate before and pass out the PINEWOOD DERBY cars afterwards!

 

Parents Meeting for Annual Recharter (December 11th at 7 pm)

Saint Louis Cafeteria

We will be collecting annual dues for 2018, revalidating medical forms, and finalizing our recharter roster for next year.

At least 1 parent from each family should attend.  This meeting is not for kids, but kids can attend if needed for child care reasons.  If you CANNOT attend, you need to get us 2018 dues and popcorn opt-out fees by December 31st in order to stay in scouting.  This meeting is normally in January, but it will be in early December this year because the recharter deadline was moved earlier.  Location is the Saint Louis cafeteria.

 

Wreaths Across America

December 16th at Alexandria National Cemetery (1450 Wilkes St, Alexandria, Virginia 22314).  The time varies each year (start time is usually between 9am - 12pm)

Arlington National Cemetery in the winter, with wreaths at each grave site.

Pack 680 scouts participate in Wreaths Across America on an individual basis.  While our pack traditionally goes to Alexandria National Cemetery, you are also welcome to participate in wreath-laying at Arlington National Cemetery (start time 9:15 - see wreathsacrossamerica.org).  No registration is required; just show up.  Please notify the Cubmaster that you went (so that we may accurately report service hours).

"A person dies twice: once when he take his final breath, and later, the last time his name is spoken."  Wreath-layers are encouraged to speak each veteran's name aloud and say thanks for his or her service.


PINEWOOD DERBY!!!

January 27th starting at 10 am in the Saint Louis Cafeteria

A group of cub scouts cheering and watching a pinewood derby race

Official check-in and weigh-in will take place on Friday night, January 26th, from 6-8 pm.  It is also in the Saint Louis Cafeteria.  All cars must be checked in the night before the race.  NO CARS will be accepted the day of the race.

It is very important that all racers (and their parents) be familiar with the official Pack 680 Race Rules.  If there any questions, contact the Cubmaster or Derby Chair.
