Welcome Back & Renew Your Dues

Welcome Back & Renew Your Dues

Category : News

Welcome back, Pack 197!
This is a friendly reminder… Our first Pack meeting is Monday, August 19 from 7-8 p.m. at Heritage Christian Church. We will be building and shooting ROCKETS! Check out the attached flyer, thanks to Mr. Smiley. If you can, please bring empty 2-liter bottles. 

In addition, we need all of our renewing scouts to pay their dues, renew Boy’s Life magazine and order any activity uniform items. Steps to renew:

1. Go to Pack 197’s website shop
2. From the home page or SHOP tab, select Registration RENEW from Featured Items in the Shop.
3. Optional items, as needed:
-Leader Dues
-Boy’s Life
-Pack 197 Activity Uniform (class B) t-shirt or sweatshirt
-Pack 197 hat (can be used for all ranks!)
-New Scout? You can pay for them, too, but we will also need a BSA application, here.
4. Checkout your Cart. DONE!

Dues need to be paid by Monday, Sept. 9. Pack 197 Activity Uniform (class B) items can be purchased online through Monday, Sept. 16. All pack shirts will be available to pick up about 2 weeks later (just in time for the fall campout!). 

If your scout does not want to continue this year, please email me and your den leader to let us know that you would like to be removed.

Scout Night, for all NEW scouts that want to register, is Monday, Aug. 26 from 6:30-8 p.m. We are not having den meetings that night. For school that day, please ask your Scout to wear his or her Field Uniform (class A) or Activity Uniform (class B) to show their scout spirit. Maybe someone at school will ask about it – invite them to Scout Night and potentially earn a recruiter patch!

Mr. Smiley and I will be at Alcott on Friday, Aug. 23 to talk about Cub Scouts during lunch. Mr. Ericson and I will be at Fouse on Monday, Aug. 26 during lunch. 

Looking forward to another amazing year with Pack 197!

Yours in Scouting,
Sarah O’Bryan
