Posted on Apr 23 2014 - 9:52am

The attached photo is of our own Ms Hansen being honored at the 2014 District Awards Banquet. Tiffany received the Distinguished Unit Scouter Award for her outstanding commitment to the Pack program. Tiffany has been an assett to the Pack committee for the last two years providing feedback on previous events and ideas for future activities. Only because of her completed training are we able to offer shooting sports activities at Pack organized camps and get hands-on experience with forensics experiments. The distinguished unit scouter award includes a magnetized "gold" name plate and a certificate worthy of framing. Only one adult from each unit is eligible to be nominated for this award a year so keep your eye out for good 2015 candidates. Pack 513 recipients of this award are:
2014 - Tiffany Hansen, Assistant Den Leader, Committee Member, Range Master
2013 - David Peters, Webmaster, Assistant Webelos Den Leader, Cubmaster, Committee Chair

Scouting for food

Posted on Apr 18 2014 - 9:33am
Our big brother Troop invites us to help with an upcoming service project. Volunteers will be delivering Scouting for Food flyers in the Park Hills & Woodbury Heights area on Monday, April 21st.  To participate, RSVP on the Pack website and meet at 6:45 at Woodbury Baptist for assignments and begin delivering at 7:00. Another opportunity to do a good turn will be Saturday, 4.26 when the Troop organizes donation pick ups. Again, RSVP and meet at the church at 9:00 a.m. Usually the project is complete by 11:30 but could be done sooner with more people to help.

What is Friends of Scouting?
Friends of Scouting is an annual direct-solicitation campaign, reaching out to Scout families, service organizations and businesses.  Friends of Scouting is the council's largest source of income (23 percent).  Additionally, the United Way recognizes the value of Scouting and provides 18 percent of the council's annual budget.  Eighty-three percent of funds raised are dedicated to program, over 15% more than the not-for-profit standard set forth by the Better Business Bureau.
It costs $193 to provide one year of quality program for each Scout.

What does a Friends of Scouting investment provide
Local programs and activities throughout the council territory
Camp scholarships, uniforms and registration fees for youths who otherwise could not participate
Accident and liability insurance to protect both youth and adult members
Professional staff who counsel, guide, and inspire volunteer leadership
Camps and facilities available for year-round camping and Cub Scout family outdoor events
Opportunities to attend summer camp and high-adventure events
Advancement programs where Scouts are recognized for learning and achievement of goals they set establish
Distribution and development of literature and training-materials 
Leadership training for young people who will become future community leaders​
