Pack 168 Weekly Update

Good Evening Pack Families, 

Please note that there will not be a Den or Pack meeting this week.  There will be a committee meeting for adults only this Wednesday, November 15th at 7 p.m. at McGinty's Irish Pub, 5406 Hansel Avenue for anyone wanting to get involved in leadership roles within the Pack.  Please RSVP to Ryan Stead, our committee chair, at rtstead@hotmail.com, so he knows how many people plan to attend.

Our next meeting will be a Den Meeting at Blankner at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 29th (unless a different location is specified by your Den Leader)     

Scouting For Food: 

Thanks to all those who participated in Scouting for Food and thanks to Ken Baker for organizing. He will let us know how many bags of food were donated at our next meeting. 


From our Popcorn Kernel:

Popcorn will be available for pick up at the Den Meeting on November 29th.  A huge thanks to all who participated as we reached our goal!


Central Florida Scouting 2017 Jamboree: 
Another fun event that in which our Pack will particpate is the Central Florida Scouting 2017 Jamboree, which takes place December 1-3 at Osceola Heritage Park.  Families will need to register individually, if they are interested in attending, as a day visitor or you can choose to camp.  The cost is $35 for both day registration and camping until November 29th, and then walk-up registration is $40. Please see registration link below.  Jessica Bennett is leading this effort for our Pack.

Re: Scouting for Food bag Pick-up - Saturday, November 11th

Thanks to all that have coordinated with Ken so far.  There are four map zones that Ken has not heard from as of yet.  If you have 1, 4, 5, or 11, would you please respond to Ken tonight with your availability to pick up bags tomorrow morning?

Thank you!!

Good Morning!

Thanks to all of those that dropped off door hangers today!  Next week is bag pick-up.  Please read these important instructions and details so that we are sure not to miss picking up bags from any home.

1. If you delivered door hangers today and are able to pick up bags next week, please pick up from the same section.  Please reply here and to Ken Baker kenwb74@gmail.com confirming that you are available and your section number.
2. If you delivered door hangers today and are NOT able to pick up bags next week, please reply here and to Ken Baker kenwb74@gmail.com indicating that you are not available and your section number.
3. If you did not deliver door hangers today and are able to pick up bags next week, please reply here and to Ken Baker kenwb74@gmail.com confirming that you are available.  You will be assigned a map with a section.

Even if you signed up on the list at the meetings, please everyone respond here and to Ken no later than this Wednesday night.  He will need time to reorganize the sections based on the number of folks available.

On Saturday, if you already have an assigned section, please set out on your own at 8:30 am and pick up bags.  Otherwise, meet at Blankner at 8:30 am to receive your section map.  The rendezvous point for delivering the bags will be determined later; either Blankner or a home.  Again, the dress is Class A if you have it; otherwise, Pack t-shirt.

Unlike this week where the task of dropping of the door hangars can be stretched out, next week's bag pick-up must be done first thing Saturday morning.  Ken will collect all of  the donations and take to the Central FL Council collection site.

One last note: If you have extra door hangers, please bring them to the Den Meeting on Wednesday.  If you ran out of doors hangers, please bring a copy of the map with those streets/homes that were missed.  We will try to get flyers out before next Saturday.

Thank you again for serving the needy with this Council wide service project.  Last year, the Council collected over 500,000 pounds of food!

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Good evening,

For those that signed up or have time to help out with our Scouting For Food Door Hanger Drop Off project, please meet this Saturday, November 4th at Blankner School in the parking lot at 8:30 a.m. 

There you will be paired up and given your door hangers and highlighted map outlining which homes you need to visit.  Once your area is complete, you don't need to come back to Blankner for any reason.  

Then next Saturday, November 11th, for those who can participate, we will meet at the same place at the same time and will provide further details at our next meeting.

Thanks and we look forward to seeing many of you Saturday.
