Our Wolves are almost Bears!!

WooHoo !!  We are almost at the end! Our Wolves are SO close to advancement and we cannot wait to greet them again in person as Bears and give them their belt loops and new Badge. We are zooming meetings and assigning “homework” to get them through. This week, wolves must camp out overnight in the yard or in the house, packing as for a regular camping trip.  Make your lists! Don’t forget anything! If you forget it on a trip, you can’t go run and get it so you can’t on this trip either!!  Make sure you entertain your family with a skit or song! 

we also have participated in a flag folding ceremony via video instruction and discussion, snd watched a video and learned about campfire safety and held a discussion about a situation/change in our community.  We chose the virus and schooling from home and the rules we must follow.  There is no doubt the Wolves get it and are educated on the situation and are doing what they are supposed to.  It got them thinking about ways to get through this and that’s a win!

Over the next 2 weeks we will be wrapping up our program with more instruction to conclude their adventures for the year.  We will keep in touch and plan for summer as best we can and we CANNOT WAIT to see all of  your smiling faces again!

 

Hoping all are well and summer camp

Software Bug – Oops!

Computer Bug

The software module that sends out email notifications received an update yesterday that was designed to include several fixes and tweaks. It turned out that the fix, included a bug that prevented two keywords, one of which was the ###NAME### keyword, from showing the correct details while sending post notification emails.

As luck would have it, our post was published approximately 5-10 minutes before the fix was released which resulted in notification emails going out with incorrect names. We have applied the fix to resolve this issue and apologize for the mishap that occurred this morning

Five Below Fundraiser

Together, with Five Below, we are going to try to raise money by doing something most people already do, shop!

The Five Below at 4640 E Roosevelt Blvd. (located next to the Old Navy in the Walmart and Home Depot shopping Plaza) will be hosting a fundraiser for the next week, from Dec 12th through Dec 17th.  10% of all purchases made, with the flyer, will be donated to Pack 1776.

I have attached a copy of the half page flyer (2 per page). Please print a copy of the flyer and share with as many people as possible. As long as they present the flyer to the cashier, at the time of purchase we will receive credit.  Again it is important to take the flyer as without it we will not receive credit.

Please share the flyer with anyone you know that shops at or may need something from Five Below.

Share, Shop, Donate!!

 

Calendar Changes

calendarIn order to improve the performance on our website, we will be migrating over to a new calendar within the next couple of weeks.  The new calendar is more feature rich, more stable, more secure, and more importantly is less resource intensive.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up, in case you see things acting a little flaky or coming and going with the Calendar.

The new calendar application which we will be switching to is called Events Calendar Pro.  The fine folks at Modern Tribe, Inc. have graciously donated the pro version of their software to us for free.  Thank you Modern Tribe!
