What is upcoming in the Housatonic Council...

IN THIS ISSUE:
Congratulations
CONGRATULATIONS TO...

Pack 25, Shelton - If you have been driving around, you may have seen yellow signs popping up that say "Here lives a Cub Scout who earned their rank Pack 25, Shelton, CT"

Congratulations, Pack 25 for recognizing the achievement of your youth and promoting your Pack.  Keep up the great work!

Pack 14, Oxford - Hiking one mile for some of us is 
tough but how about getting a group of Cub Scouts and their parents to hike over 200 miles?  Well Pack 14 was able to do it and had some of their Lions participate in the feat.

Congratulations to Pack 14 for achieving this accomplishment in honor of our 100th Anniversary.
