Happy Halloween!
We all had fun at the September Pack Meeting.
Thank you to everyone who donated a snack.
We hope that everyone will offer a big welcome to our new Tiger Den & Wolf Den, and to all of
our new Cubs Scouts, as well as to our 3 new leaders, Colin, Terry, and Mike.
Last weekend was Wizard Safari. Attending were Den 1, Den 3, and Colin and Joshua Bakalyar.
Everyone had a great time participating in all the activities, and the Webelo Dens 1 & 3 got to
camp with Troop 27. Congratulations to Troop 27 for winning the First Place Award for Best
Gateway and thanks to them for letting our Webelos go to Safari with the Troop!
Have a good time at the party following tonight’s Pack meeting, and we hope to see many of
you on the 25th at Tuckahoe.
