Pack Graduation and Picnic

posted May 8, 2016, 9:55 PM by Paul Wiggins

What:
Pack Graduation & Picnic - 
Join us to celebrate a great year of scouting!
When: Saturday, May 14, 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM
Where: Willow Farm Park (AKA the Red Barn Park), 901 S. Fordham St. Longmont, CO 80503
Uniform: Boys should come in their blue or tan uniform, wearing their current rank neckerchief.  They'll receive a neckerchief for their new level as we promote them to the next den level during the ceremonies.

We'll be watching the forecast and communicate any weather-related changes if necessary as the date draws closer.  So far it looks promising.



Agenda:
  • Opening - Flag/oath/law ceremony at 10:30 AM
  • Prayer, Welcome, and Leader Recognition
  • Craft - Make neckerchief slides
  • Cubmaster Minute - A Scout is Kind
  • Tiger to Wolf
  • Wolf to Bear
  • Activity - Kind Scout Race
  • Bear to Webelos
  • Webelos to Arrow of Light
  • Closing - Retire flags
  • Celebration - Picnic!
Bring:
  • Sunscreen
  • Lawn chairs for family members - scouts can sit with their den groups in the grass
  • Blankets for picnic
  • Food to share for the picnic (pick one if you have multiple scouts):
    • Tiger - Dessert
    • Wolf - Side Item (Chips, etc.)
    • Bear/Webelos - Fruit or Vegetable
The pack will provide the following for the picnic lunch:
  • Sub Sandwiches
  • Plates/Plasticware/Napkins/Cups
  • Drinks - Water and Lemonade
Food service will be set up in the barn shelter, and your picnic items can be dropped off there before the meeting if desired.  Keep in mind the timing of the lunch after the ceremonies, so coolers may be needed for some items depending on the weather.

Following the program and lunch, many boys may want to play in the trees or the stream that runs through the park.  It can be a lot of fun, but be prepared if you plan to let your boys participate.  It may be wise to bring a change of clothes (play shirt under their uniform shirt would work) and a towel.  With that much boy (and sibling) energy concentrated in one area, we'll need to work together to supervise the fun.

Please contact paul@longmontpack673.org if you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help with this event.
