Greetings from Pack 65 in Cadott, Wisconsin:
Last month I asked for advice and prayers. Thank you all for both! We
had a Pack Committee Meeting last month and resolved all issues.
If you're interested in specifics, read on. If not, delete now.
1. The Webelos Den Leader who quit (she didn't think the boys should
wear uniforms, the fundraising money should NOT go towards camperships,
and that we should NOT have treats at Pack meetings) left us owing the
Pack $45.00 for Trail's End popcorn that she received. (A Scout is
2. In the future, the Pack Committee will decide how fundraising
monies will be spent, not one individual who chaired the event.
3. The Pack Committee upheld the feelings of the parents, as reflected
by a Pack Meeting Parent Survey, on the following topics:
A. All Scouts are encouraged to wear uniforms. Any Scout
family that cannot afford a uniform may inform any leader, who
will take the matter (confidentially) to the Pack Committee.
Uniform shirts will be provided for all Scouts, one way or
another. We will also add a "Uniform Exchange" night to our
May graduation ceremony and our Sept. Round-up night.
B. All Scouts must be in uniform to participate in a flag
ceremony. The Pack will purchase one extra uniform shirt for
each Den and keep them with the flags. If a Scout "forgets"
his uniform on a night he is scheduled to participate in a flag
ceremony, he may wear the extra one.
C. We will continue to have treats at Pack meetings. The
Asst. Wolf Den leader who was against treats is now in charge
of them! She drafted some rules of conduct and distributed
them to the parents at the Feb. Pack meeting.
4. We elected a Pack Treasurer (the Cubmaster) and Pack secretary
(yours truly). Our new Chartering Organization representative (from
the Lions Club) attended the meeting and supported the decisions of the
majority. Our Pack Committee chairperson did an excellent job in
mediating the discussions. Her cool, calm, and collected manner helped
diffuse a potentially explosive meeting.
5. Camperships: We have 38 Scouts and 9 leaders signed up to attend
Camp Phillips in Haugen, WI this August!
This Sunday is our Blue and Gold Banquet. Happy Birthday, Scouting!
