Yesterday, Cubscout Pack 107 had their last pack meeting of the school year and scouting year before Advancement on June 22, 2019.
The Lions did a great job leading us in the pack meeting by performing the Flag Ceremony.
We reviewed all the activities and achievements made in month leading to the end of the scouting year. The Lions enjoyed a trip to the Ecotarium May 4th, using the Den Dollars that they earned.
On May 17-19, our pack spent the weekend camping at Treasure Valley Scout Reservation, and performing community services at the Beaver Day event. Our cubscouts and their family hiked 4 miles around the grounds picking up trash, and learning about the Outdoor Code, and the Leave No Trace Principles.
On May 25th, the pack held it’s Friends of Scouting fundraising car wash. With the support of our Grafton community, the pack successful raised funds to donate $300 to Friends of Scouting.
The Lions performed community service at Norcross park that same afternoon, by doing a park grounds clean up! It’s wonderful to be young and have so much energy!!
On Memorial Day Monday, May 27th, Pack 107 joined other scouts, veterans, and government officials in the Grafton Memorial Day Parade. The cubscouts learn the true meaning of Memorial Day. They learn that we dedicate this day to remember all the fallen military service men and women who made the biggest sacrifice while protecting our country and our freedom.
On June 1st, the pack had their Fishing Derby on a beautiful sunny Saturday morning. Congratulations to Brody for catching the largest fish, Kai for catching the smallest fish, and Kaleb for catching the most fish!
Awards were presented to the cubscouts who finished requirements and adventures in the last month.
Congratulations go out to Steven for earning his hiking stick for hiking over acumulated 20 miles. Congratulations also go out to Kaleb for hitting his 50 mile mark!!
Congratulations go out to Lucas and Javier for earning their Whittling Chip.
Congratulations to this group of cubscouts who earned their Cyberchip Award.
A special award was presented to a committee member, who was nominated by his/her peers, who demonstrated that he/she added a “spark” to scouting and to the pack. This year the Spark Plug Award goes to Cindy Fong , the PR Chair for the pack, for her work in making the pack’s presence known to the community via Facebook and the pack’s website.
Our Cubmaster, Tabitha explained that there were 3 awards that can be earned over the summer months. The Summer Time Pack Award can be earned if the pack has pack events scheduled in the Months of June, July and August.A Cub Scout Summertime Activity Pin can be earned if a cubscout participates in one activity in each of the months of June/July/August. The third award is the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award, which can be earned if your cubscout attends summer camp and do other rank specific activities.
Thank you Kaleb, for being the example of what a cubscout can achieve over the summer!!
In June, we have a Pack Norcross Park clean up June 9, Advancement and campout on June 22/23.
In July, we have another pack Norcross Park clean up July 7th, CMASS rocket launch event in Acton on July 20th. The pack will provide rockets to the cubscouts who sign up to participate, and we will go as a pack event. More details to come. Stay tuned!
Our pack will have a display at the Grafton Fun in the Sun event July 21st. Summer camp at TVSR is the week of July 22-26th. More events are in the works for end of July and the month of August. Stay tuned!!
Following the awards, the cubscout were given an egg drop challenge. Each den had to come up with a design using a balloon, tissue paper, rubber band and a paper bag, that would prevent their egg from breaking after it gets dropped. It was fun to see all the creative designs the different dens came up with. However, none of the eggs survived. It will be fun to revisit this challenge after the cunscout have time over the summer to brainstorm some new designs.
The pack meeting ended with a birthday cheer to those having birthdays during the months of June/ July/August. We also had shout out to Tony Frederico, our Committee Chairperson, whose birthday was yesterday as well.
