In previous emails, I put the date for this event on Monday. That was my error and I apologize. I hope it does not cause your family inconvenience.
At noon, the event will kick off with a FLAG CEREMONY and Pack 850 is invited. If your scout can participate, please sign up at the below link. Make sure to be there by 11:30 at the latest with your boy in his Class A uniform.
Pack 850’s chartering sponsor, VP Rotary, has offered a unique fundraising opportunity to us. They will provide a booth for us to sell slushies. The Pack incurs no expenses and gets to keep 100% of any money raised. We only need to work the booth. Please the link below for a sign up sheet if you’re able to participate. The shifts are 90 minutes each.
Thank you to everyone who can volunteer their time to help the pack.
