Upcoming Events and Blue & Gold Dinner

Hello!

We hope everyone had a good time at our recent Pinewood Derby! Everyone seemed to have fun and there were a lot of neat cars! Cubs, if you would like to race some more, hold onto your pinewoods for the 2012 District Pinewood Derby in April. More details to come. Please check out our website http://pack3387.org/wp/ for photos and a list of our Pinewood Derby winners!

The Pack 3387 Blue & Gold dinner is a couple weeks away. Come and support our boys and the leaders. At the dinner, we will also celebrate our Webelos 2 den and many will then be moving on to Boy Scouts! We will have various guests there, we will recognize our sponsors, and hear about what each of our dens are doing.

The B&G dinner is sponsored by the Pack and this year will be located at Grace Church again (754 Ghent Road, Fairlawn, OH 44333). Bring the whole family! There is no charge for dinner. Cub Scouts, wear your full uniform! Dinner is at 6:30pm and the program starts at 7:15. During dinner, we’ll have the cake judging for our annual cake decorating contest. The theme this year is “Pirates”! Cubs, please use your imagination if you would like to decorate a cake (…the cakes will become our dessert afterwards). To plan for food, please let us know as soon as possible if you and any of your family are coming by either replying to this email or to cubmaster@pack3387.org.

Also at the Blue and Gold, we will be collecting the Annual Cub Scout dues as part of our Pack Recharter that occurs each February. Please bring $50 to sign up for the upcoming year that starts April 1st. We hope everyone is coming back! Please let us know if you aren’t or are unsure as the Pack has to make the membership payment in a couple weeks in February when it is due by the district. Friends of Scouting will also be at the Blue & Gold. This is an annual fundraiser for the council. Donations can be made that evening as well.

We have just updated our Pack calendar for our March Pack meeting and scheduled another fun visit to Kendall Cliffs for an evening of Indoor Rock Climbing on March 16th from 7pm-9pm. Kendall Cliffs is located at 60 Kendall Park Road, Peninsula, OH 44264. If there are any parents that are interested in helping us belay, please let Matt Deliberato know. There is a quick test for certification at Kendall Cliffs that can be taken a day or so prior to our event. The cost for rock climbing is $10 for Cub Scouts and $15 for siblings.

As the Web 2 boys prepare to move on, we would also like to thank those Webelos 2 parents and leaders who have helped out our Pack over the years! Tom Orcutt, having two son’s in the Pack, through the years has helped out as an Assistant Webelos Den leader, Lock-in Coordinator, and over the past few years, as our Pack Treasurer. Adrian Smith has been our Pack Chaplain and Religious Emblems coordinator. Ben Sprouse has been with our current group of Web 2 boys and has helped as Assistant Den Leader & Webelos Leader. And of course Don Kostar, also having two boys in the Pack, in addition to Cubmaster, has also previously been a Den/Webelos leader. They have done an outstanding job in each of their roles and have greatly helped our organization! We can’t thank you enough!

I’d also like to take this opportunity to update you on a number of our recent new Pack Leaders as well. Matt Deliberato is stepping up as our new Cubmaster in a couple short weeks. Matt Cunningham will take over my current position as our Committee Chairman. Mike Claus will be our new Pack Treasurer. Jeff Falter is our Membership and Registration Chair. Kim Flynn is our new Committee Pack Secretary, and Advancement Chair. Sarah Paulette-Samadi is our Public Relations Chair. Mike Procyshin is currently an Assistant Cubmaster. Also our Uniform coordinator is Alice Claus. Brenda Schult and MariAlice Nester are also our hospitality coordinators. I am really excited to have such a great group of people as part of our Pack! We are in good hands!
