IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO JOIN

 

Come Join Pack 231

The 3rd Tuesdays Of Each Month at 7:00pm

In the Lanigan Elementary School Gymnasium To Join

 

Cub Scouting is a program for Kindergarten-5th grade boys. Your son and his family are invited to join in the fun and learning of Cub Scouts. Cub Scouts participate in events like Pinewood derby, campouts, community service activities, and much more. Apart from fun and excitement, the aim of Cub Scouting is to help boys grow into good citizens who are strong in character and personally fit. This is why we say that Cub Scouting is fun with a purpose!

 

If you want your son to have some fun, excitement, outdoor opportunities, and a chance to participate in a program in which he doesn't always have to win — instead, he learns about “Do your best” and how to he helpful to others -- then we have just the program for you!

Who Runs the Pack?


The pack is run entirely by unpaid volunteers. We are always looking for people to help out and have large and small jobs for every family.

  • The Pack Committee develops budgets, approves expenses, arranges for facilities and conducts overall planning. Regis Wintermantel is our Committee Chair.
  • The den leaders are most directly involved with the cub Scouts. Mike Yandora is the Cubmaster (pack “den leader”).
  • An adult member of each Cub Scout household (not including Tigers) is encouraged to participate in a volunteer position or serve on a committee. The quality of our pack is a direct reflection of the adult participation.

Pack 231 generally tries to fill several postions: den leaders, committee members, and several activity organizers (filed trips, Blue and Gold Banquet, Pinewoord Derby, Scouting for Food, etc.).

What are the Uniform Requirements?


There are some official scouting events where uniforms are required, but for nearly all pack activities uniforms are not required. Some boys do choose to wear them however. We plan to offer Class B uniforms (Pack 231 t-shirts) at some point this year.

The official uniform is the following:

  • Tiger, Wolf, and Bear dens wear the official blue shirt, den neckerchief, and slide with unofficial blue pants, jeans, or shorts.
  • Webelos wear the official blue or tan uniform shirt, Webelos neckerchief and slide, with unofficial blue pants, jeans, or shorts. If you are starting Cub Scouts as a Webelos, go with the tan shirts as this is the same shirt worn at the Boy Scout level where the boys will advance too withing a year and a half.
  • All scouts wear the Great Lakes Council shoulder patch, Pack 231 numerals, WOSM (purple circle with fleur de lies)
  • Hats, socks, belts, pants, etc. are optional.

No boy will be turned away for lack of uniform or funding. Please let us know if you need assistance.
