Pack 54 Makes the BSA News!

Post date: May 2, 2012 4:48:45 PM

Pack 54 has been mentioned in two recent publications by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA): The Fireside Chat (April, May, June 2012 issue) and the April Investment Report. These reports highlight our fall popcorn sales success and our recent Heroes Night event.

Led by our popcorn kernel, Bryan Dessauer, we raised the 4th largest sum in the Dan Beard Council during the Fall 2011 Popcorn Drive: $29,498. The Bears anchored these sales with an astounding $12,344.08 in total sales, followed by the Tigers ($7,351.91), the Wolves ($5,819.52) and the Webelos ($5,433.23). Pack sales leaders include:

Tigers: Johnathan ($771)

Wolves: Steven ($1,054)

Bears: Ben ($1,576); notable mention: Gavin, Hayden, Jackson, Chris ($1,000+)

Webelos I: Elijah ($703)

Webelos II: Cody ($765)

Great job, scouts, on a successful fundraiser!

The Dan Beard Council also recognized us by listing our Heroes Night right up there with the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day Parade. As BSA put it, "Pack 54 from Monroe sure knows the best way to say 'thank you' to its local heroes - make it a community effort. It was a wonderful event full of patriotism!" That's exactly the message that we want to send to our heroes, our community, and the rest of the scouting organization.

Congratulations to all Pack 54 leaders, scouts and Akaelas for this well-deserved recognition. Thank you for helping Pack 54 set the standard throughout the Dan Beard Council!
