Congratulations, it's a great validation for the program you are
providing and shows considerable involvement by everyone!
We have the same thing happen in our Pack. What we are doing is
giving more back to the Boys and Parents, our Chartering
Organization and our Community as a reward for fundraising efforts
and supporting the Pack in a major way. With up to $5000, from
Popcorn sales, in the treasury we take up to $500 per year and buy
something that our chartered organization (our Elementary School)
has asked for (on a wish list) and donate to them in the Pack's
behalf, for their support and the use of many of the school's
services, room's etc. We also buy a tree to plant each year at the
school for each den and we plant them each spring in our cleannup
and conservation project at the school.
We pick a needy charity every year (in September) and during the
year provide $50 per month to support a needy family in the Pack's
We went from a potluck B&G to a fully catered banquet, with the
Scouts amount fully paid by the Pack and the parents/siblings
amount subsidised out of the Pack coffers.
We have a Pack outing to see the Detroit Tigers in June as a Pack
thank you (also our first event for the Summertime Pack award)
where the boys tickets are paid for. Again the Pack subsidises the
We pay for half of the overnight camp fees and/or half of the day
camp fees for the boys.
We, as a committee, buy $50 gift certificates for a nice restaurant
for all of the front line leaders (Den Leader and Asst DL's) and $25
gift certificates to the Council Scout Shop for all of the other leaders
and give these out as appreciation gifts.
We bypass the individual FOS presentation in the Pack and give a
lump sum FOS payment ($1000) from the Pack, parents can still
donate if they like individually.
We also pay all activity fees, activity patches, awards,
pinewood/space derby kits, books, neckerchiefs, beltloops,
trophies, for all scouts during the year.
