As you know we have our November Pack Meeting scheduled for this upcoming Monday, November 17th.  This is a Pack Meeting you are not going to want to miss.  We will be having some very special guests brought to us by Parrots of Paradise.  Yes, Parrots!!!  Join us for an evening of meeting and learning about some of these beautiful creatures.  Parents, since this is a very special visit, please explain to the Scouts and any brothers and sisters that will be attending that they need to be on their best behavior so everyone can hear the presentation and get the maximum amount of fun out of the special visitors.  We will be starting the Pack meeting at 6:30 pm promptly in the Worship Space at Christ Church Episcopal.

If you are interested in learning more about Parrots of Paradise and what you have to look forward to Monday night, check out their Facebook page at
