Halloween Hoot is This Saturday, 25 October from 5-7PM

Posted on Oct 20 2014 - 9:30pm

Our annual Halloween Hoot is Saturday, 25 October from 5-7PM at PUMC and we encourage you to bring your family, friends and neighbors.   Each den will have a game they will run.  We need parents to help supervise.  Guests win candy at each game and have a blast.   Each Scout should bring a bag of candy to hand out to participants and a can of food to be donated locally.  Costumes are encouraged (even for adults!) and there will be a costume contest.  There will be a "trunk-or-treat" sponsored by PUMC as well.  The Boy Scouts from Troop 486 will be there with hamburgers and hot dogs for sale.  Feel free to share the attached flyer.

You're Invited to Troop 451's Haunted House

Posted on Oct 20 2014 - 6:32am

Each year, Boy Scout Troop 451 hosts a free "haunted house" at the Westminster Scout Cabin (3639 Old Chapel Hill Road, Durham, NC 27707).  Pack 495 Scouts, families and friends are invited to attend.  One night only: Tuesday, 28 October from 7-9PM.
The haunted house is designed and performed by Troop 451 Boy Scouts, several of whom were Cub Scouts in Pack 495.  It is specifically for elementary age children, so nothing too scary.  They sometimes have a campfire with s'mores, but I don't have any details whether that will be provided this year or not.
Costumes are fine, but not required.  Uniforms are optional.
