					Dear Parents, Welcome, my name is [John Doe] and I am the Den Leader for Wolf Den 7. I thank you for allowing your son to join Cub Scouting and I welcome all of you to our Den and Pack. For those of you returning to my Den I am glad to see you back, and to those new Scouts and parents I look forward to getting to know you. If you ever need to contact me I can be reached at the following: Email Addresses: johndoe@johndoe.com Home Phone: (210)XXX-XXXX Cell Phone:

(210)XXX-XXXX

Also be sure to visit the Pack Website at www.bsa-pack51.org. The site is constantly updated with upcoming Council, Pack, and Den Activities, Pictures from Recent Events, and useful links to help your Scout along the advancement trail. We have two Scout positions in the den starting this year; the Denner and Assistant Denner. Their duties are to help setup the meeting area, assist in passing out materials, and to cleanup the meeting area. Each Scout will be assigned for the period of one month each position. The Denner is also responsible for providing the den meeting snacks for month he is assigned. Attached is a tentative schedule of our meetings. It is my goal for all of the Scouts to have earned their Wolf Badge by the Blue and Gold Banquet on February 23, 2006. This way they can concentrate on earning arrow points the remainder of the year until they graduate to Bears at the Family Campout on May 19 – 20, 2007. I will be collecting dues of $1 for each Den Meeting (Maximum of $3 per month). This money will be used to purchase our craft projects. You may pay at each Den Meeting, once a month, or the year in advance ($25). Dues are required to be paid even if a meeting is missed. In order to accomplish this goal, I can not stress how important your help will be in this. Most of the Achievement Requirements we will cover during Den Meetings, however, there are several which need to be done at home: 1. Achievement 3 – Keep Your Body Healthy: a. Requirements A, B, C to be completed at Home b. Present Requirement A at the October 3rd Den Meeting 2. Achievement 4 – Know your Home and Community a. Do Requirement A and E at Home 3. Achievement 6 – Start a Collection a. Do Requirements A, B, and C at home b. Requirement A will be displayed at November 28st Pack Meeting 4. Achievement 8 – Cooking and Eating a.
