Cub Scout Pack 150 will host its final summer event—a kickball tourney—on Saturday, Aug. 17, 10 a.m. at Legion Park in Maytown. The boys are encouraged to invite friends and a few moms and dads will likely be recruited to play.

Our 2013-14 year kicks off on Thursday, Sept. 5 at 6:30 p.m. with a “round-up” of the current Webelos, Bears and Wolves at Donegal Presbyterian Church. We will build rockets!

We invite new scouts and Akelas to join us for rocket-building at the Sept. 12 meeting. We will discuss upcoming events and fundraising with old and new parents at this meeting.

The big rocket launch will take place on Sept. 19 in the yard of our gracious hosts, the Brinsers, who live at 284 Endlsow Road, Maytown (property adjacent to the end of the airport runway). All scouts and families are invited to come anytime after 5 p.m. Snacks will be provided.

For all your scout uniform needs, the Pennsylvania Dutch Council Scout Store will offer extended hours in October.

The Harvest District’s 2013 Cuborama will be held at J. Edward Mack Scout Reservation on October 18-20. This event is designed for Cub Scouts and their parents and is a great introduction to scouting activities. This guidebook offers a nice overview of the weekend. Please note that we will collect forms and money and register as a pack.

Finally, a “Thank You” to all the families who donated to Friends of Scouting this past year. We are only $300 from reaching our pack goal; doing so ensures that we are supporting the staff and facilities of our local scout council. Please see a committee member if you are interested in donating by December 31, 2013 to help meet our goal!
