December 14 Pack Meeting, 6 p.m. SVFD

Stratham Pack 185's December pack meeting is Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 6 p.m. at the Stratham Volunteer Fire Department in the Morgera Room.

The theme for the meeting is "A Scout is Cheerful" and relates to celebrations. Leading the meeting as cubmaster will be Bill Beaulieu.

The agenda for the meeting will loosely follow this online plan and include the following den duties:

  • Opening Ceremonies: Webelos
  • Interactive C-H-E-E-R
  • Prayer: Bears
  • Introductions and News (April 8 is tentative date of Battleship Cove Sleepover, Bill is new treasurer, need volunteers for ice skating and Pinewood Derby)
  • Special Guest from End 68 Hours of Hunger
  • Skit: Wolves
  • Audience Participation
  • Awards 
  • Cubmaster's Minute
  • Closing
All den leaders should plan to arrive a few minutes early to help set up and to gather your scouts to sit together. This month, our pack will also be doing a new format for the Good Turn Bag. Den leaders should take a few minutes prior to the start of the meeting to hear the good turns done by each of your scouts. Den leaders will then pick one good turn to feature and this scout will get to choose from the Good Turn Bag. Pack leadership voted on this change to rein in this experience and raise the standards for rewarding a good turn. 

During the awards segment, in addition to normal achievements for each den, the pack will recognize some new Bobcat badge achievers with blue spirit jars and recognize the Tiger den with a poster they've made for scouts. We will also have awards for popcorn sales.

A reminder that if your scout has registered for thee Museum of Science, Boston sleepover trip January 20-21, payment of $55 per person who is registered (both adult and child) is due at the den meeting Dec. 14. Checks can be made payable to Stratham Pack 185. You can also pay your den leader, Pack 185 Treasurer Kristen Nazarian Mulcahy, or through the pack's website Paypal account in the lower right hand of this web page.
