If you're a parent or a registered scouter and you have it all together, the following will be nothing new to you. BUT if you think you could be a little bit more organized, read on.
Scouters (aka registered volunteer leaders) have the admin rights to post content to this site.
Why post content to this site? Well for one, this site eblasts your content weekly to your den, pack, committee. Adding calendar entries and posts to content is within your abilities. Another benefit is sometimes leaders forget what rank requirements were covered when. If you post your itinerary, it's very easy to verify requirements were met when it comes time to sign off on rank requirements. As an added benefit, future leaders will be able to look at your content by looking to the past for ideas for their future events.
Have a complaint, concern, or praise to give? Anyone receiving these eblasts can post replies to posts as long as their logged in. All feedback is welcome - know this group of volunteers primary goal is to provide the best cub scouting experience we can with the resources we have. Your feedback is one of those resources.

Halloween tips and treats

Posted on Oct 25 2015 - 7:39pm

Halloween is the only holiday we get to spend with our neighbors.
Here's some tips for trick-or-treaters:
1) Good scouts will be courteous of their neighbors lawns by remembering to follow the Leave No Trace principles - walk on the paths and pick up litter.
2) If there are carved pumpkins and other traditional decorations, those houses have the best candy. Houses with porch lights only just aren't into the festivities and therefor, not likely to have chocolate (the ultimate halloween treat).
3) Always say "Trick or Treat" and always say, "thank you." And compliment their decore.
4) Be courteous and mindful of the younger participants. Make sure they're apart of the event and not just in your way to the ultimate haul.
5) Let parents inspect the candy for potential unsafe packaging before you put any in your mouth.

Treats for Pack families: On the Pack Calendar Halloween entry are some recipes for seeds and a template for making a Cub Scout logo jack-o-lantern. If you have a favorite seed recipe, please share it in the comments or reply section.
Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday!
