At our November 13th Pack meeting we had the pleasure of having several veterans come and talk with the boys about their service. They answered questions and put faces to those we honored this past Veteran’s Day and every day. The boys also made cards to say thank you to send to our troops serving overseas. The next Pack Meeting will be at Whale Tale Archery in Dousman on December 6th from 3:30-5:30. Pinewood Derby car kits will be distributed at this meeting too! Hope all our Cub Scouts can join us! This holiday season, Cub Scout Pack 169 and Lake Country School will work with Hartland Area Food Pantry to provide nutritious meals to those in need. Please bring non-perishable food items to school December 5th-12th, 2014. Help our Lake Country School Cub Scout Pack 169 feed those in need from our local area by contributing to the food drive this holiday season. Working with Hartland Area Food Pantry, which serves hundreds of individuals and families in our local Arrowhead School District, let’s help provide nutritious meals for those in need. Our goal is to donate 2,014 food items on December 13. In the spirit of fostering healthy competition (and bragging rights), we will have a contest to see which classroom can bring in the most food items per student. Cub Scout Pack 169 will provide a pizza lunch for the winning classroom. Look for our posters throughout Lake Country School in a couple weeks.
