We are asking all new Scouts (and Parents) who have registered, in Kinder – 2nd Grade to meet at Southway Church this Tuesday, September 4th @ 7pm to discuss den meeting schedules, den leaders, and other topics of interest to new Scouting Parents.
We sent out an email via Scoutbook with the details. Please look for that email. If you didn’t receive it, please Message us via Facebook.
We have updated our FAQ page – splitting it into individual topical pages, and adding more information to each. We’ve also updated our “About Pack 404” page. Be sure to check them out in the links at the top.
Scouts BSA has a great new video for everyone new to Cub Scouting. Let us know if you have any more questions.
We’re working hard to teach our Scouts the value of serving their community. We had a work day today with one of our own Pack families, that is still rebuilding after Hurricane Harvey.
The Scouts and their families spent the morning emptying the house of boxes and household items, so that work can continue throughout the house. You can see more pictures on our Facebook Page.
