In one of our most memorable pack meetings of the year, our Arrow of Light scouts will leave Cub Scout Pack 680 behind and join Boy Scout Troop 680!

Here is what our crossover bridge looks like:

Bridge setup starts at 1 pm.  We need 5-10 adults to set this thing up, that's how awesome it is.

Afterwards, we will have a super fun pack meeting full of recognition, fun, and probably some songs.  You do not want to miss it!

 

April Religious Emblem book turn-in (is actually in March)

Cub Scout Catholic religious emblems

Families wishing to earn religious emblems for your religion should contact your den leader to coordinate getting the workbooks and turning them in.  Completed books need to be approved by Father O'Hare.

Since our deadline for turning books into the Diocese of Arlington is early April, books will be due to den leaders the last week of March.

 

April Pack Meeting: Cubmobiles!
