Summer Planning Picnic

Pack 183 parents,

Please join us this Saturday June 4th, 10:00am, in Markham Park for our summer planning breakfast picnic.

This is your opportunity to shape next years program, please come along and let us have your ideas and thoughts on all the things the pack will be doing in the next school year. We have to plan camping dates and campsite locations, pack meeting dates, service projects, the Blue and Gold dinner & holiday events and discuss ideas for our important fundraising program, all while incorporating the core BSA Scouting Program and Council and District run events.

So if you loved an event last year and want to see it again, let us know, likewise if you have an idea to improve or change something now is the time to speak up.

Cub scouting is run by volunteer parents just like you and many hands make light work, so if you can spare an hour a week to help out to run an event or even a den meeting or two please let any of the committee or your den leader know.

We will bring pancakes and coffee to share with everyone, but please bring a camp chair and your ideas.

We are meeting at 10:00am to try and be done before Noon so not to take up the whole day, as you enter the park go straight across the first large intersection, over the first bridge and we will be on the left hand side by the large playground area.

Hope to see you all there.

Regards

Warren, Cubmaster
