Well, we finally got the first fundraiser of the season completed and I gotta say that everyone did a fantastic job. Many thanks to all the parents, leaders and of course Scouts who assisted in this BBQ. We were invited back once again by the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center to host a pre-event cookout for the U.S. Jazz Ambassador band – a FREE event.
There was a ton of people and it really did look like the community came out to support us (as well as listening to some good music). The Webelos handled the grill while the other Scouts did the prep, serving and customer service. Two of the Webelos (Anthony and Connor) were requested to perform the Color guard before the event. Although we were unable to see them, Frank was able to take some pictures and will post them shortly. They received a warm welcome and got a round of applause after the event.
At the end of it all, we covered our expenses, got free lunch, had some fun and made a few dollars for the Pack. Enjoy the pictures and as always, if anyone has some pictures to share send them my way. We also encourage you to check back often for if more pictures are added.
We had our Back to the Pack summer event on Saturday, 8/16 at Black Point Marina. The turnout was awesome! Although the weather looked terrible we got lucky and the storm stayed just west of us. It was HOT and MUGGY and the kids certainly worked out by playing soccer, volley ball and dodge ball. By the time the kids were tiring, the BBQ was ready for a great outdoors sit down lunch.
Afterwords we all sat down and had a welcoming conversation. We introduced the leadership and committee members as well as outlining our vision for the upcoming season. Time went and by the time we were ready for Smores, the weather was signaling us so we decided to cancel the campfire. Of course the Cub Scouts were not happy so we have promised that we will have a campfire along with Smores during our
1st Official Pack Meeting on Thursday, September 4, 2014 @ 7PM.
I also want to take this time to remind the Pack members that we are still taking suggestions for camp outing locations. All suggestions will be put to a vote so we can finalize our season calendar. Send us your requests. I didn’t have enough time to take more pictures which I regret, so if anyone has please send them to us. Enjoy the few here!
