Hello to everyone. My name is Elisa McClelland, and I am a
recent subscriber to this list.
My scouting experience has been a year at our previous pack
during 93-94. At that time my son was a Wolf and I was
his den leader. Last year (94-95), Council decided our new
school (at that time just two yrs. old), should have its
own pack. Unfortunately, our PTA declined to be our
chartering organization and we could not find an immediate
sponsor. Our old pack had gone on without us, and we kinda
got left out in the cold. Last May we did *FINALLY* get our
charter with a local church. But, we are still trying to get
organized. It is tough work starting a Cub Scout Pack!
I will receive Webelos leader training soon, but meanwhile I
would appreciate any hints on:
1.) How to get our new boy's parents involved.
2.) Webelos den leading.
3.) All the stuff that a Webelos starts out with that
is different from a Cub (aside from neckerchief, hat, slide and
belt buckle). For example, do they need that ribbon for their
sleeve? Or does that get awarded when they earn those pins?
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
