Congratulations to all the Tiger Scouts, Cub Scouts and Webelos who crossed over into their new ranks this evening! We had a packed house for the event, which celebrated the boys' achievements throughout the year and culminated in the awarding of the neckerchief and slide for the new Wolf, Bear and Webelos ranks. Those boys who were in the Webelos I program this past year were awarded the Blue Flame patch to signify their transition into a patrol--one step closer to becoming a full-fledged Boy Scout. We look forward to welcoming our newest scouts to the Pack at our May 15th Meet-n-Greet event, which will be held at the Monroe Church of the Nazarene.
As the incoming Cubmaster, I look forward to growing my responsibility within the Pack and to driving this growth through continued partnership with Bob Hodgeman, as he provides mentorship and support via the Assistant Cubmaster role. It will be a great learning and growth opportunity for me, and this just demonstrates how Scouting can provide positive rewards to not only the participating boys but also to the adult volunteers, as well. This evening we had a number of adults indicate their interest in supporting the Pack through a variety of volunteer roles. As a volunteer organization, we appreciate everyone who steps up to the challenge of providing whatever level of support that each is able to provide. If you are interested in volunteering with Pack 54, whether for a single evening, a couple of months or even an entire year, and you have not yet communicated this interest to a Pack Leader, I encourage you to reach out to one of us and help strengthen this organization and the experiences we provide to our boys.
