Calling all 1776 families! (Program Updates)

Happy weekend, Pack 1776 families! We hope all of the scouts are having a great start to the school year, although we know it looks a bit different. Parents and guardians, please check your email. Our cubmaster has sent out an update with guidelines and program ideas for the 2020-2021 scouting year. Included in the email is a 1-2minute survey that we are asking all parents/guardians to fill out in order to help us plan for our program. The survey results and guidelines will be discussed at a zoom parent meeting on Monday Sept 21st, at 7pm. The zoom link and login information will be sent via email that morning.

If you did not receive this email, check spam. If it is still not there, please do not hesitate to reach out to us via email, or on Facebook messenger and we will make sure you get it. Any questions you may have can be filled out on the survey and addressed during the parent meeting. We look forward to seeing familiar faces on zoom and hopefully finding our way back to the scouting trail, safely, soon.

Yours In Scouting,

The leaders of Pack 1776

What a fun Open House!

A warm thanks to everyone who came out tonight to the Cub Scout Pack 1776 Open House. We saw many new faces, as well as our dear familiar ones. The children thoroughly enjoyed “SCIENCE!” With Dan, electrical circuitry with Mike, Catapults of Fun and corn hole with Nora and Digging for Dinosaurs with Kristine. We all had an evening of learning through fun, comradery, and laughs. A special thank you to the boy scouts and venturing crew (both of 1776) who assisted us tonight, and of course to Regina, our Cub Master, who met with all of the parents.  We really have a great group here, and we very much look forward to expanding our cub community! See     you all next week!

**Remember, it’s never too late to meet with us. If you were unavailable for our Open House, you are welcome to swing by any Monday meeting between 7:00PM and 8:00PM!

Welcome ALL to our annual Open House

We are all looking forward to meeting new faces tonight. There is a lot of information and fun planned for this evening!

Blue and Gold

Dear Parents,
Can you believe that the end of our scouting year is upon us? Where did the time magically go? Just a moment ago it was September and we were just starting the year and then POOF!!! It is over. We are having our end of year Blue and Gold Banquet on June 2, 2018. The doors open at 12:15 and the banquet starts at 1:00. Tickets are available. Each scout gets a ticket for themself and 2 tickets for parents. Any extra tickets are $5.00 each. Payment at the door is acceptable. Head counts are needed by May 30th. We look forward to ending the year with the same spirit that we have had all year!

Thank you!
Regina Giuffre

Firehouse Visit (5/15/17)…

Attention LIONS, TIGERS, WOLVES & BEARS we are having our annual Firehouse visit this Monday (5/15/17) at 6:30pm. We will meet AT the Firehouse. It is located at 7818 Frankford Ave, 19136 (right by Holmesburg Branch library). It is Engine 36, Ladder 20. We ask that adults stay for the duration of the tour, because if the firehouse gets a call, they have to go. If your cubs have uniforms, please have them wear them. This will be the meeting for the week, we will meet here and dismiss from there. So, we’ll see you all on Monday and we’ll meet in front of the firehouse, by the flagpole.

Lion Cubs…

Hello Lion Cub Parents! Last night we covered a few things.

We completed Mountain Lion adventure requirements 1 and 2: Gather outdoor items you’d need on an outdoor adventure; and S.A.W. (Stay in place, Answer when called, and blow your Whistle) for if they were to ever become separated from group.

We also completed Animal Kingdom requirement 2, show you know what to do in an emergency.

HOMEWORK: Animal Kingdom Requirement 3 is their homework for the next 2 weeks. Save energy. We will talk about it, at our next den meeting, on Monday, January 30, 2017. 

Hope you all have a great 2 weeks, see you on the 30th!

Happy Scouting!

Happy Cub Scout

Lion Cub Parents

Attention all Lion Cub Parents: The Lion Cubs ARE meeting tomorrow, Monday January 16, 2017.  Last week, we worked on the mountain lion achievement, requirements 1 and 2. For requirement 1, we gathered outdoor items we need for an outdoor adventure (such as hiking). We went over the 6 essentials we ALWAYS have on us which are; first aid kit, filled water bottle, trail food, sun protection, flashlight and a whistle. For requirement 2, we talked about S.A.W. Stay in place if lost, Answer if you hear your name, Whistle; BLOW IT! We were missing a few cubs last week, so I plan on going over these again. 🙂 Tomorrow we will also work on Animal Kingdom requirement 2: Show you know what to do in an emergency. Requirement 3 will be HOMEWORK for boys, I’ll post details about that after tomorrow night’s meeting. Have a great night, hope to see you all tomorrow at 7pm.

Lion Cub Parents…

Lion Parents…don’t forget we Lions meet EVERY OTHER MONDAY, unless we have a scheduled outing or pack meeting. There is NO MEETING tonight for the LIONS. See you all next week. Have a great week. Happy Scouting.
