Fall Pack Family Camp

October 14-16 





Health Forms & Allergies

Posted on Sep 26 2016 - 10:15pm

If you have a food allergy, please notify your Den Leader and also remember to include it in the notes of all RSVP's so the volunteer grocery shopper can make advised decisions.
Also under Menu in the left hand column of this page, go to Files, then scroll all the way down and click Health Form - the less than 72 hour version. This form needs to be completed once a year for each person attending any camp this year.
If you turned in about this time last year it's time to refresh. If you turned in a new one for the June Overnighter or Polar Camp, you're good. If you're unsure, please complete a new one.
Mrs. Peters secures the health forms in a 3 ring binder that travels to each Pack pack function. Once they become outdated, they are shredded, burned and the ashes spread across multiple zip codes.

Save some green on your uniform

New uniforms and gear can be somewhat pricey. There is one more affordable option I know of.

The Uniform Exchange Program from Pilgrim Cleaners is held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month 5:30-7pm at the Gabbert Scout Office. 5300 Glenwood Ave., Minneapolis MN 55422. To donate your Blue Uniform or for more information on the Uniform Exchange Program, call Ellen 612-203-4971. 
You can also sometimes find cub scout uniforms at thrift stores, on eBay or even, Craig’s list. That’s how Mrs. Quick finds the ones she offers.
The easiest way though is the Scout Shop as it's a one stop place for everything scouting. http://www.northernstarbsa.org/Contacts/ScoutShops/ (see locations via link)
Magic Patch or similar adhesives are horrible for Boy Scout uniforms. It just doesn't hold up to the abuse boys put their uniforms through.
We're very fortunate to have a former pack member who's a professional and experienced seamstress in the area. For just $1 per patch, Mrs. Mindy Moffat will put your scout's patches on appropriately and securely. (That's a real bargain compared to the $4 per patch the scout shop charges.) Mindy's experience sewing patches on military uniforms while she lived in Germany is evident in her work. Look no further than your Cubmaster's khaki to see the quality of her craftsmanship.Your scout worked hard to earn his patch, make sure it looks good and stays looking good all while supporting a scouting family's new home business. Just Sew-Sew • 651-230-3036 •
