I have just subscribed and I wanted to introduce myself, and my family
My name is Mike Daly and I am a Cub Master for Pack 27, Bayville NJ.
My wife, Cherie, and I are both very involved in Scouting at our unit
level. She is a Den Leader. We are in the Three Rivers District,
Jersey Shore Council (Hi Rob and Donna!). My oldest son is a Bear this
year, and my youngest, whose three, can't wait to become a Scout.
When I started as CM a little over a year ago the unit was down to
about 23 active boys. Today I'm very proud that we have 60 boys
involved, and benefiting from the "Promise of Scouting". Our unit is
very active, delivering a 12 month program to the boys, including
summertime activities. It hasn't always been easy, but it has been
well worth the effort.
One idea my wife came up with that was very successful in our unit was
a "Bring A Friend Night" at a Pack meeting. Each boy created his own
invitations and handed them out at school to his friends. By this
method we attracted a large number of boys to a Pack meeting where they
could experience first hand what we do with, and for the boys. We
signed up about 20 boys in the Spring using this method, including some
1st year WEBELOS(s). This was over and above the number of boys we
signed up during our annual Roundup that we conduct each Spring.
I look forward to hearing from all of you and sharing ideas for the
benefit of all the boys, worldwide.
By the way, does anyone know about Pack 465 that used to be active in
Sierra Vista, AZ? I called the Council in Tucson AZ, but they have no
records or recollection of that unit. I'm told the unit is nolonger
