This year we will be helping to recycle uniforms & handbooks so we can pass them along to scouts as they move through the program. Please bring with you to the picnic any of the following items that you no longer need/would like to pass on to other scouts: handbooks, cub scout shirts (class A or B), hats, neckerchiefs, & slides. You can drop them off at the registration table when you arrive at the picnic. Money will also be collected at that time.

Please also bring the following to share with all attendees:
  • Tigers – dessert
  • Wolves – salad
  • Bears and First year webelos – fruit
Boys can bring a joke or a riddle to share at the Campfire.

The cookout will include hamburgers and hot dogs for dinner (as well as fruit, salads, & some desserts provided by Pack 97 families).
