Be On the Lookout for the BSA Popcorn Brochure In the Mail

Posted on Jul 27 2016 - 7:26pm

Starting at some point in the month of August, be on the lookout for a brochure in your mailbox about BSA popcorn sales.  Often, families overlook the brochure, as it looks a little like junk mail... but this is your order form for our first Pack fundraiser of the school year.  Please hang onto it, as your scout will use this to take orders, see the options, and see prizes for sales.  More information will be coming about when the orders will be turned in... but we have some time!  :)  Enjoy your summer and see you at the Pack Picnic in August!

Pack 623 prides itself on being a Gold Journey to Excellence pack every year.  This means that we are an active Pack that provides carefully plans and budgets, provides quality programming, maintains membership and provides service/volunteerism opportunities year-round,.  Each year we like to plan events throughout the summer to continue with an active pack and each year we also earn the pack Summertime Award.  

Individual cub scouts may also earn a pin and win a summertime award.  To do this, the scout would attend at least one pack activity during each month of summer.  We have two activities each month.  To track your progress, each family MUST RSVP for these activities on our pack website.  (This practice is also very helpful for planning purposes... win-win!)
