CUBS - This info is for you!
Pack Meeting Plans

June Pack Meeting:  Obedient - Wheel into Summer
Summer is a great time to get outside and hop on your wheels. Bikes, skateboards, scooters, and roller blades give us the freedom to move about. However, with that freedom comes the responsibility to use our wheels safely and follow the rules. Consider having a bike rodeo as part of your pack meeting.

July Pack Meeting:  Brave - Home of the Brave
A Scout can face danger (or new things) although he is afraid. He has the courage to stand for what he thinks is right even if others laugh at him or threaten him. For a Cub Scout, his home is his community: his neighborhood, his school, and his place of worship. Acts of bravery come in all shapes and sizes, just like Cub Scouts.



 
Lowaneu Chapter Order of the Arrow meetings are held on every 3rd Thursday of the month at...
2939 Van Der Meer St, NLV 89030
