Year End Picnic

Posted on May 19 2016 - 10:05pm



The annual Pack Picnic is scheduled for Friday, June 10th from 6:00-8:00. 

This will be a pot luck event, in which the Pack will supply the main course and families will bring a side dish to share.

The picnic is always a very fun celebration. We will share a meal and have fun playing games. Also, any remaining awards will be presented to the scouts and each scout who attends will receive their scout handbook for next year. 
If you are planning to attend the picnic, please click on the link below to RSVP and indicate which side dish you will bring.

Friends of Scouting

Posted on Apr 28 2016 - 9:44pm


Thank you to all the Pack 788 families who returned a pledge envelope!

We would like to remind everyone that Friends of Scouting pledge cards are still being collected. 

At Pack 788, as with all packs in the council, we aim for 100% participation in the Friends of Scouting campaign, regardless of the pledged amount. If your family can pledge as little as $1.00, please do so. The sealed envelopes will be delivered to the council headquarters unopened, so no one in Pack 788 will be able to view the pledged amount.   

If your family has not returned your pledge, please return it to Tom Tyler. If you have not yet received your pledge card, they will be available at all pack events.

The purpose of the Friends of Scouting campaign is to ensure that the Heart of Virginia Council of the BSA has adequate funding to support each scout in the packs within the district. The cost to support one scout for one year is $250.00.
