CUBS - This info is for you!

January Pack Meeting: Helpful - JOBS, JOBS, JOBS
There are many ways that people can be helpful. One way is by volunteering time to help others. Cub Scouts, Scout leaders, and coaches are examples of volunteers. Another way people help is by doing jobs that provide a service. This month we celebrate those who help out in their homes, schools, and communities. 

February Pack Meeting: Cheerful - ABRACADABRA!  
Cub Scouts love to amaze and to be amazed. Discover the magic this month as your pack dazzles the audience and spreads cheer by sharing magic tricks.

BLUE & GOLD:   Most Cub Scouts celebrate Scouting Anniversary Week in February with a "birthday party" called the blue and gold banquet. In nearly all packs, the blue and gold banquet is the highlight of the year. It brings families together for an evening of fun and cheer. It's often the pack meeting for February.
