Blue and Gold Potluck on February 16

Posted on Feb 12 2023 - 7:28am

Please take a moment to sign up to bring a dish and supplies to our Blue & Gold celebration at our February Pack. We also need volunteers to help set up and break down the room. Blue and Gold Banquets are a tradition in Cub Scout packs. They are a celebration of the anniversary of the founding of the BSA on February 8, 1910, and a time when we celebrate the hard work of our scouts, scouters, and parent volunteers. This is Pack 987's first ever potluck and we hope you will help make it a success.

Bobcat patches

Posted on Feb 12 2023 - 7:27am

The Bobcat Rank Patch is the first badge earned in Cub Scouts and signals that a scout knows the signs, symbols, and big ideas of Scouting. All first year scouts Tigers (1st grade) and older should be working toward earning this patch. To earn this patch, scouts needs to meet these seven requirements: 1. Learn and say the Scout Oath (with help if needed), 2. Learn and say the Scout Law, (with help if needed), 3. Show the Cub Scout sign, 4. Show the Cub Scout handshake, 5. Say the Cub Scout motto, 6. Show the Cub Scout salute, 7. With a parent or guardian, complete the exercises in the pamphlet How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent's Guide. Parents, please email Brian McCabe if your new scout has meet these requirements but has not yet received their Bobcat patch. We hope to award these patches at our February Pack meeting.
