[updated 20 MAR 2015]

Good evening everyone!

I hope that you all enjoyed spring break.  I am happy to announce that we have been able to reschedule our Blue & Gold celebration.  We will host it at Robinson Middle School on Saturday, March 28th.  The time will be the same, 5:30PM-8:00PM.

All original reservations will remain the same.  If any changes need to be made, please contact Amy Nelson as soon as possible. If you have any questions about Blue & Gold, please feel free to contact either myself or Jill.

We look forward to recognizing all of our scouts for their rank advancement!

Yours in Scouting

Robert Torres

Save the Date!  March 28, 2015 (Saturday)

Blue and Gold is our annual awards banquet where Scouts are recognized for completing their ranks.  Please join us as we honor all our Cub Scouts with a face painting ceremony, recognize the contributions of our adult volunteers and bid farewell to our Webelos II scout with a special Arrow of Light Ceremony and Crossover.  It’s a night full of ceremonies, traditions and fun!

As with all of our activities, there are costs involved.  Contributing to the event’s raffle is each family’s part in making an amazing night come together.  Please check with your Den Leader on how you can help donate to the raffle.

In addition to individual raffle item donations, leaders have decided to assign each den a themed basket to raffle.  The money raised from selling raffle tickets will pay for the room rental, supplies and portions of the ceremony.

This year our banquet will be catered by Taco Cabana, and will be child and vegetarian friendly!  Meal tickets are $10/person, and the pack will pay for each Scout.  We need to know ASAP how many from your family are attending, so if you have not done so, please let your Den Leader know.  If you weren’t able to pay at the Pack Meeting, you can mail your payment to Amy Nelson.  Deadline for the payments is Saturday Feb. 20th.

A lot is being planned for this fun evening.  Please check with your den leader to see what you can do to make this a night to remember!

Congratulations to all the scouts of Pack 112 who have worked hard on achieving their ranks this year.  Thank you also to all the den leaders, pack leaders, parents and siblings for helping each scout become the best scout they can be.  Family involvement is essential to Cub Scouting’s success.

When: Rescheduled March 28th, 2015
Time: 5:30pm – 8:30pm
Where: Robinson Middle School, Plano
Who: All Scouts, siblings and family members
Cost: Scouts free, family and siblings $10 per person

The Future of Scouting

220-850_468x60

For the last several years, the Boy Scouts of America has been pursuing a strategic, national plan on how to update the Cub Scout program.  In late 2009 volunteers met with national BSA staff and leaders in the field of child development to discuss “What Today’s Youth Want and Need”.

From that kickoff meeting, the BSA has been designing the changes to the Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing programs.  Starting on June 1st, 2015, the Cub Scouts will begin to implement these changes and transition to a program designed around these core desired outcomes:

  • More Cub Scouts being active/having fun
  • Improved Webelos transition/retention
  • Simplified advancement
  • Improved connection to mission and aims

While Cub Scout leaders (our Pack and Den leadership) need to be most familiar with the upcoming changes, everyone with an interest is invited to learn more about them. Therefore the Northern Lights District will be holding a roundtable meeting in March to explain all of the updates.

Northern Lights District Roundtable Event

When: Thursday, March 19th, 2015
Time: 7:00pm
Where: LDS Church, 2401 Legacy Drive, Plano
Who: All Unit Leaders, Den Leaders, and all interested parents

Additionally, the BSA recently held a series of webcasts on January 17th to outline the changes, and these webcasts are available on the web for anyone interested.  To learn more, please visit the BSA program updates page at http://www.scouting.org/Home/programupdates.aspx and come to the District Roundtable meeting in March.
