Get Bulldogged!

Show your Bulldog Pride and wake up to a Bulldog Surprise!
Your kids will be thrilled to wake up one morning to a yard full of bulldogs. Each evening from 9/21-10/25 our stealth team of doggers will fill one yard with a pack of bulldog signs. The bulldogs will remain in place for 24 hours - until the next family gets dogged.
Want to get dogged more than once? Go for it!
Want to bulldog a friend? Or a new incoming BSS Family? Go for it!
 BULLDOG PRIDE ALL DAY, EVERYDAY!!

Bulldogging only happens 2x a year, so don't miss out!

CUB SCOUT PACK 90 
Calling all 1st through 5th grade boys!
 
Cub Scout Pack 90, right here at Blessed Sacrament, is one of the oldest Cub Scout Packs in the city with a long history of connection and service to the Blessed Sacrament parish and neighboring communities. We’re planning a robust calendar of events for the 2021-2022 school year (e.g., pinewood derby, model rockets, food drives, exploring historic sites, etc.) and are focused on growing the number of boys who would like to be a part of the Pack where they will learn about nature, science, leadership, civic responsibility, teamwork, and sportsmanship in a fun, friendly, and safe environment. 
 
Our first in-person Pack meeting of the year will be on Friday, September 17th at 7:00 PM in the BSS Auditorium and is open to all boys and families interested in joining or just learning more about Scouting with Pack 90. We will follow CDC and BSS safety requirements and protocols.  
 
Please feel free to contact Bryan Knowles at BMDKnowles@gmail.com or 202-423-5915 with any questions.
