August 2020 Update from Cub Master Ben Miller:

Wow, we made it to August. Time for an August pack update!

Quick Recap. As many of you know, the pack traditionally goes quiet during the summer with the exception of a few key events. This summer has been far from traditional, so we have done our best to adapt and improvise. My thanks to everyone who participated in our Bridging ceremonies, virtual den meetings, hikes, and camp outs, Cub Camp Express (summer camp in a box), Scouting at Home (still waiting on the Council to ship the patches), District virtual Pinewood Derby, World Scout Scarf Day, and online Popcorn sales.

Activity Update. We remain in Phase 2 of the state reopening which limits our official activities. Continue to check out our Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/Cub-Scout-Pack-4544-646744768788551/ ) and Scoutbook for future events. We hope to resume den level activities but it depends on the state reopening plan. In the meantime we continue with virtual events:

• All August is Virtual Family Camping (pick a day, any day!)

• August Virtual Pack Meeting is 27 Aug @ 6:30 via Zoom. Tune in to learn about our fall events

Den Updates. Everyone has bridged and is now the next rank. Your den leaders should be reaching out to begin scheduling den level events. Our Den points of contact are:

New Members. We continue to accept new members. If you are interested contact our Membership Chair @ taylor.allen@siu.edu

Adult Leaders. We have several key leadership vacancies in the pack to include Webelos Den Leaders. Contact Trish @ patricia_graden@hotmail.com or myself if you are interested in helping.

Pack Survey. We sent out a pack survey earlier this month and are eager for your input. Survey closes this week, please take a few minutes and complete this short 10 question survey! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WBMZN8D

Scoutbook. Remember to keep your accounts updated and log your activities to receive credit! Thank you all and hope to see you via Zoom!
