Hello Pack 471!
It’s that time of year, back at school and officially starting our new year in cub scouting. We know that it has been a different spring and summer but we are looking forward to having fun this year. The calendar for 2020 – 2021 is attached. Please take a minute to note some important dates, including fall camping that is again in early October. Also see that spring camping will be just our Pack at a different campground than we have previously attended. We want to offer some different activities as well as take the opportunity to teach more camping and outdoor skills. Also attached is the dues schedule for this year. Scouting’s national organization has continued to increase dues. Last year, the Pack covered the increase for all Scouts using previous popcorn sales surplusses, so 2 years of national dues increases are reflected in the amounts. You can pay Cindy Clayton by check or use the Pack paypal link https://gmpack471.org/wordpress/.
We will hold our first pack meeting virtually next Tuesday, Aug 25, 2020 @ 6:45 PM via Zoom!

While we will be meeting as a Pack virtually for at least a couple of months, your Den Leaders have great programs to get you back into Scouting and enjoying the outdoors with your friends. Enjoy Scouting in person with your Dens and we will meet again in person as a Pack later in the year as we receive guidance from our District and Council.
We are also signing up new Scouts just like every year. Interest is already high and we have several confirmed new members. Remember to tell all of your friends, and if you bring a friend to rally night who signs up, you get a Recruiter patch. We hope to have a HUGE turnout for that night, and if anyone knows of anyone who wants to join now or who wants further information, you can have them send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
We hope to see you there!
