March 13th was the annual Blue & Gold dinner. Our pack sent up 9 Webelos 2 into Boy Scouts. 7 of those boys earned their Arrow of Light Award. We had an incredible turn out from the pack’s families. Each den entertained us with a skit, song or demonstration. There was also a special flag retirement ceremony done by the boy scout troop. Thanks to everyone who helped set up, contributed a side dish, dessert or supplies. Thank you for the kitchen helpers too. It was a sight to see everyone pitch in for clean up. We have a wonderful group of boys with great families. We hope you all had a nice time.
Special thanks: Marc L for taking on the pack’s awards chair. Mike K has signed on as the Tiger Den Leader. And Dan T is now our Outdoor Committee Chair. Your support in helping fun the pack is wonderful!

April 13th was a Pack meeting at Tift Nature Preserve. We held an outdoor awards ceremony followed by a hike led by the Webelos.

The hike covered many adventure requirements for each den.
