Halloween Hoot is Saturday, October 29th

Posted on Oct 18 2016 - 7:06am

Pack 495's Halloween Hoot Cub Scout Carnival is being held this year on Saturday 29 October at PUMC from 2-4PM.  This event has been a Parkwood neighborhood tradition for decades.   There are carnival games and a costume contest.  Boy Scout Troop 486 will be on hand cooking burgers and hot dogs.  Each den is responsible for a game and helps run it.  Candy is given out as prizes for playing the game.  We need candy, so please donate a bag or two.  You can bring candy either to the den meetings on October 27 or just bring it to the Hoot on Saturday.  Costumes are optional but it is fun to wear one.  Hope to see you all there.  Please share the attached flyer with family, friends, neighborhoods.

The air is getting cooler and the days are getting shorter, it must mean our Fall Family Camping trip is coming up.  Mark your calendar for the weekend of October 21-23 and plan to join the Pack at Falls Lake for a fun-filled weekend.  We are at a new campsite this year: Rolling View.  There will be lots of new trails to hike and some great activites planned.  The campfire on Saturday will serve as our October Pack Meeting.  I hope to award the Bobcat badge to all of our new Scouts that night.  If you have questions about camping or need equipment, please talk to your den leader.  More info and a sign up to come next week.
