Notes from the Committee Chair

Posted on Dec 13 2014 - 11:43pm

Good morning Cub Families, Happy Sunday!!


I hope things are going well for your preparations for this holiday season. 
I know things are busy so I want to remind you of somethings that are closing fast!!
We have a very busy Pack Meeting scheduled for tomorrow, Dec 15th, 6:15-7:30, at the Mound School Cafeteria. The Wolves will be conducting. 
Pack Dues: ARE PAST DUE!!! $50, PLEASE TAKE CARE OF THIS, IF YOU HAVE NOT!! TONIGHT!!
Den Dues: ARE PAST DUE!!!! Each Den has budgeted what they need for the year. I think most are $50. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF THIS TONIGHT!!!
Thank you!
 
 
We have 4 positions in the Pack that are in critical need to be filled!!!
1) Asst. Parent Committee Chair!
2) 2015 Pack Leadership Training Tracker!
3) 2015 Pinewood Derby Chair!
(So they can see how the whole thing works are this January's Pinewood Derby! And, be able to run it through 2015, and Jan 2016!)
4) Popcorn King or Queen, for 2015!
(This position requires that they have some room, the size of a single car garage, or spare bedroom to store some popcorn, for approx a month, as it is picked up/distributed, and sold at Show, and Sells. )
 
All these positions require the ability to work with people, and that you are at least a little, to highly, organized. Primarily, record keeping, and posting of info to the Pack website. 
Perhaps some lite public speaking, at the Pack Meetings. We have people able to help teach you how to do these jobs, but not for much longer,..
These positions MUST be filled by the end of the Pack Mtg on Monday. Don't let the boys down. 
The Pack will not continue to function in the near future, without these jobs filled. 
 
At the Pack Mtg, the Ventura City Fire Dept, Station House 3, will be bringing out an engine for the boys to check out. 
They have asked for a donation of a new, unwrapped toy, approx $10, in value, for their "Toys for Tots" Program. 
Please give, if you can. 
 
Also at the Pack Mtg, the boys will be getting their Pinewood Derby Car Kits. 
For those boys that need guidance/help, don't have power tools, hand tools, wood glue, etc,.. Woodcraft has graciously opened their shop, and man power to us on Tuesday (Dec 16th) & Wednesday (Dec 17th), 5:30-7pm. However, space IS limited. You MUST sign up on the website to attend. If we need to set up a third night, we need to know sooner, than later. 
The boys need to have an idea of what they'd like to do on their cars, BEFORE THEY ARRIVE AT WOODCRAFT. A google search can help with this,...
After that, Cub Scouts will be pretty quiet for a couple of weeks. 
Then with January, we get busy, quickly!!!
Check out the Website, so you can see for yourself!!
New Night for the Parent Mtg., Pancake breakfast, Pinewood Derby Track Repair, Pinewood Derby car Check-In, Pinewood (Night of madness) Derby Racing!
 
Enough for now! It's 4:30am, I need to get some sleep!
(Just kidding, it's Saturday evening,... The e-blast just goes out at 4:30am,... I'm already fast asleep! Have been for hours!!)
 
See you Monday!!
 
Cheers,

Lets get in, take care of business, and get out!

PLEASE!! Bring them, it's all good. 
 
 
Tuesday is Veteran's Day. A day to remembers those friends, family, and solders that have defended our great country. 
I know that there were at least a couple of Tigers that helped post flags at Ivy Lawn Cemetery. 
Thank you to the Cubs that helped with that!!
Make sure the opportunity is taken to say, a heartfelt THANK YOU, to those that have given much, and to those that have given all. 
A reminder, no school on Tuesday.

I hope to see you there!
 
I love seeing what all the Dens are up to,... Your Den Leaders, and Assistant Den Leaders are working hard to come up with neat ideas to keep your Cubs engaged. 
Please continue your support, and help them as much as you can. 
And, thank them for the work they do. It is a labor of love, but a sincere THANK YOU, goes a long way. 
In fact, I'd like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to a few people. 
Wendi Tidwell, my trusted Assistant Parent Committee Chair, and mentor. 
Kelley Bray, Fundraiser Chair, for all the hard work she has been putting in. 
Sara Small, for taking up the call of Membership Chair, when needed. 
Cathy Meixner, for being such a stellar Awards/Rank Chair. She is so great at knowing what the boys have earned, and makes sure they get awarded!
Corey McKinney, for being our Treasurer, and getting the VFW, for us when ever we ask!!
And last but not least, Bruce Winker, Hiking Chair, for putting together GREAT pack hikes!!
If you get a chance, PLEASE, say thank you to these folks. 
We are all volunteers, doing what we do, for the boys, and families of Pack 3179!!
 
Cheers,

Posted on Oct 11 2014 - 6:35pm

Just a reminder of the Parent Committee Meeting, Oct 13th, 6:30 (Sharp) till 8:30 (Sharp).
I will make you a deal! Get there on time, let's do the meeting, and we can get out on time!!!
I Promise!!!!
I know we all want to get home to kiss your cubs,  and kids, Good Night!

Ask the parents that attended the last meeting, we were out 9 mins early.

Who should attend this meeting?
ALL PARENTS!
Especially those that are on the Parent Committee, Den (DL's & ADL's) Leadership, Pack Leadership, or filling roles in other capacities. i.e. Camping Chairs, Hiking Chair, Flag Ceremony Team Leaders, etc,....

People that are being asked to present are as follows:
Ashley Bautista, Kelley Bray/Sara Small, Craig Carey, Jeremy Heidrick/Brian Johnson-Sherman/Jeremy Patelzick, Cathy Meixner,  Corey McKinney, Wendi Tidwell, and Bruce Winker.
Special Invitations to attend are extended to: Jermaine Bell, Georgiann Henry, Brandy Tillery, Inessa Gelman, Candice Imbler, Shyam Krishnan, Denise Fulk, and Taylor Emerson-Bird.

Note: This can be a "Boring Meeting", for our Cubs. They, I'm sure, would prefer to remain at home.
HOWEVER, if you don't have that as an option, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, bring them. I would rather have YOU there with your kids, then you not there at all!! It is not a problem.

I am looking forward to seeing ALL of you there!!
