Recharter for 2015
Please bring $24 to the next pack meeting. We must collect the annual $24 BSA registration fee for each scout in the pack for calendar year 2015. This fee is sent to Boys Scouts of America to keep official registration current. In addition, if scouts wish to receive Boys Life magazine in 2015, we must collect an additional $12. Funds may be deducted from scout accounts if funds are available, otherwise we will be starting to collect payment at the September 30th pack meeting. Checks can be made payable to “Pack 374″. Registered adults must also pay the $24 annual fee (if continuing as a registered BSA member) and must also have current Youth Protection Training.
Service is a big part of scouting and necessary for our unit’s Journey To Excellence. We have two opportunities coming up and we need as many scout families to participate as possible:
Do a Good Turn Service Project in Your Own Neighborhood!
In conjunction with Goodwill of Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas, Heart of America Council is sponsoring a donation drive to collect and deliver to specified Goodwill stores the following items: good used clothing, household items, books, games, etc. From October 13th to November 7th, we will distribute collection bags in selected neighborhoods. On November 8th, we will collect donations and take them to our local Goodwill donation center.
Neighbor Woods Tree Planting Day
On Saturday, October 11th, we will be assisting the City of Liberty with a tree planting project to plant trees along the trail between the new roundabout and the Flintlock flyover. Pizza and drinks will be provided. This event can also count toward earning the conservation award and so all scouts are encouraged to participate. If you plan to participate, please sign-up at the September 30th pack meeting so that we can get a head-count. On Saturday, October 11th, we will meet at 10am at the southeast corner of the South Valley Middle school parking lot. See attached flier.
Hy-Vee and Price Chopper coupon books are back! This is a super easy way to put money into your scout account to offset pack dues, summer camp fees, and other scouting related expenses. Each coupon book that you purchase for $5 puts $4 into your scout account. You can then recoup your $5 one of two ways. If you use the coupon book yourself, you’ll find there is a coupon for $5 off a purchase of $50 of groceries. Alternatively, you can sell coupon books to your friends, family, or neighbors.
Next Pack Meeting
Our next pack meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 28th at 6:30pm at the church. This will be our annual “Trunk-Or-Treat” with lots of fun activities.
