FROM THE CUB MASTER
Please take note that there is only one den meeting in the month of February which
means if you miss the first den meeting, you have missed all the den meetings.
February is the 100th anniversary for the Boy Scouts of America and to help celebrate this
event I have asked all den leaders to make a poster board of vintage photos of your son,
his Dad, Mom. Brother, Uncle, Grandparent, Great Grandparent, etc. The photos need to
be of a scouting event with them in uniform. All photos will be returned after the
In addition to the poster boards, if you have any electronic media photos that I can use in
a power point presentation for the banquet please send to me with the name of the person
in the photo and his/her relationship to your son.
We have 75 people going on the overnight trip to the Yorktown. Please go to
http://www.patriotspoint.org/exhibits/yorktown/ and under camping go to “things you
need to know” for some important information. We will meet on the pier in front of the
ship just to the right of the pavilion (Like last year) at 10:00am. Everyone needs to try to
be there at that time as we will need to check in at the same time to get the required
indoctrination and find out where we will be sleeping, when we eat, etc. Please take note
of my cell number 803-367-2463. There is a gift shop and we ask that you refrain from
purchasing your souvenirs until after our check out.
