Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good time at the Pack Meeting! We have a lot of events coming up that I want to remind everyone about as Den business is picking up. We have the Roba's Adventure on Sunday October 9th and Harvest Fest coming up Saturday October 22nd and Sunday October 23rd. A reminder that money is due for these events by October 3rd at our Committee Meeting. You can either get the money to your Den Leader or contact me and I can meet you to get the money turned in. Also I want to let everyone know that if they are interested in earning the Catholic Religious Awards we have two parents that have stepped up to coordinate that for you, Amy Williams and Beth Redington. If you are interested please either contact them or you can contact me and I will get you connected to them. A big thank you to both of them for volunteering to help the Pack. We appreciate it! Also remember that we have other positions that need to be filled in the Pack as well and are looking for other volunteers. If you can help out please contact myself or your Den Leader. Have a safe week and be thinking of those costumes for our next Pack Meeting.    -    Cubmaster Josh

Hi everyone! It is time for our first Pack Meeting of the Scouting year! I hope you are as excited as I am. There are a lot of new things this year and we have a big meeting planned for Friday. There will be a lot of new faces at the meeting so don't be shy introducing yourself to the newest members of the Pack. Let's make them feel welcome, I'm sure you all remember when you started with Pack 281. Don't forget that we will be looking for people interested in our Roba's outing, Harvest Fest and a possible Franklin Instute Pack Trip later in the year. Come on out and be ready to have some fun! It's going to be a great year! If anyone has any questions or concerns you can contact me at #570-332-0215 or at JoshuaCoy@msn.com   -    Cubmaster Josh

Fall? Doesn't feel like Fall yet!

Posted on Sep 7 2016 - 10:22pm

Hi everyone! Are we enjoying this weather? It may not feel like Fall yet (and technically it isn't Fall until later this month but September to me is Fall) but we have some great Fall events lining up for Scouts! We are just 9 days away from our first Pack Meeting of the new Scouting year and we will talk about a lot of great events lined up for this Scouting year. Some that are fast approaching are Harvest Fest on Saturday October 22nd from 12-6pm and Sunday October 23rd from 11am -5pm. It is $12 per person with children 5 and under Free. If you purchase tickets at the gate on the day of the event it is $17 per person. If you would like the Pack to take your ticket order and money up to the Scout shop and purchase tickets for you then we ask that you have your money in to either your Den Leader or myself by Monday October 3rd. You can take your order and money to the Scout shop yourself at any time but this is when we will go up to the shop. Also NEW this year! We have reserved a campfire ring at Roba's Family Pumpkin Farm for Sunday October 9th from 12- 4 pm. If Pack members (and their families) are interested in going to Roba's and having some fun with us we want to know. At the September Pack Meeting we will talk about this outing and see who is interested. If we have at least 20 people that want to go we can get a group rate for everyone and save you some money. Admission and expenses at the Pumpkin Farm are the responsibility of each Scout and their family but we will have some s'mores and hot chocolate available for everyone at the campfire ring. It will also be a nice place to sit down and eat lunch if you want and visit with other Pack members. Roba's has a lot of great activities for children and adults to enjoy. It is truly an all day affair! Den activities have started and I am excited to see everyone next Friday! As always if you have any questions/concerns/problems/suggestions or just want to say Hi you can reach me at JoshuaCoy@msn.com or text me at #570-332-0215. -    Cubmaster  Josh

A Little Summer Left

Posted on Aug 24 2016 - 10:02pm

Hi everyone! Summer is racing to a conclusion but before we reach a new Scouting year there is one last event left! Tuesday August 30th at 6pm we will meet at Misericordia University's North Gate and go on a Pokestop Hike. We will go to 13 Pokestops and travel roughly 0.8 km. Not into Pokemon, don't worry there will be a lot of great things to see and some great information to learn as well as a nice bit of exercise. If a parent could accompany each Scout it would be appreciated as there are parts of the hike where we will be walking along the campus roadways. I hope to see you out there! If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at JoshuaCoy@msn.com or text me at #570-332-0215.      -    Cubmaster Josh

Movie Time

Posted on Aug 19 2016 - 3:12pm

Hi everyone! Sorry that I did not get a new post written for this week's e-blast but here is a reminder that we have our Annual Outdoor Movie Night tonight at the Trinity Presbyterian Church at 8pm. The weather looks great and it is always a great time watching a movie outside. We will have popcorn and beverages, if you have a favorite candy bring it along with a chair or blanket to sit on. Alos remember your Class B uniforms. If anyone would like to make a donation to the church to thank them for graciously letting us use their property to hold this event for free we will have a jar at the movie tonight. I hope to see everyone there for a great time as we get ready for the start of school and a new Scouting year! The Den Leaders and myself have been working on putting together a great year of Scouting. There will be some new things and all of the favorites as we hope to make Scouting a fun experience for your sons and hopefully for the whole family as well. If you have any questions or concerns fell free to contact me at JoshuaCoy@msn.com or text me at #570-332-0215.   -    Cubmaster Josh
