Last Pack Meeting of this Scouting Year

Last Pack Meeting of this Scouting Year

April 28, 2014

6:30pm, Sanctuary ("Worship Space")

It’s hard to believe that next Monday is the last Pack Meeting of this scouting year.  Since our Family Spring Campout is our monthly pack activity there is no pack meeting next month.  So please plan on attending next Monday.  We will have the usual activities mixed with a special event for the scouts, parents, and families.

The Spring Family Campout has been set!

Friends of Scouting Annual Fund 2014

Posted on Apr 10 2014 - 11:59am

We had our Friends of Scouting presentation at our recent Blue and Gold Banquet, which is what I wanted to follow up with you about. We had a wonderful ceremony and now I am following up on all those envelopes.  As you also know, 

At the ceremony, we delivered a wonderful speech and video about what Scouting means to us, the families and parents of current scouts.  It was quite moving.  Please check out the video at http://hovc.org/supportScouting/fos-family-campaign/.  It is well worth the two minutes it takes to watch it. 

Our Pack 788 Goal is to achieve 100% participation. This means that every family has the opportunity to support Scouting by returning the pledge card they will receive. Please return your pledge card.

You can write one check now to bring with you to our next meeting or I will have more pledge cards at that meeting and you can pledge an amount to be paid over the year by monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or one payment at a later date.

 Thank you for being a Friend of Scouting and allowing us to work with your son!

 Sincerely,

 John

Pack Service Project - CARITAS Lunches on 3/31

Posted on Mar 27 2014 - 9:55pm

The Pack 788 service project has been scheduled for Monday, March 31st at 6:30pm. We will be meeting in the Education Building (Room 202) at Christ Church to prepare bag lunches for CARITAS (Congregations Around Richmond Involved To Assure Shelter). CARITAS is a great organization in which a number of churches around Richmond help the homeless by providing shelter, meals and services. During the week of March 31st, Christ Church will be welcoming and helping a group of homeless women. The lunches that we make on Monday will feed the CARITAS guests on Tuesday. The lunches will include a sandwich, chips, fruit and dessert. The scouts will also be asked to write a short note or draw a picture to place in the lunches.

We ask that you please volunteer to help with this service project. Only 30 lunches need to be made, which should be very easy to accomplish. Please follow the link www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0A4AA8AB23A75-pack1/8398848sign to sign up so we will know how many scouts will be participating. For additional information, contact Tom Tyler at 804-677-1626 or ttyler@irr.com.
