The Cub Scout year is getting going, and our September Pack Meeting is tomorrow!

Thursday, Sept. 26

Arrive at 6:55 for 7 PM start

Longfellow School

715 S. Highland

Enter on Highland

We hope to see everyone there – and remember the pack meetings are for the boys and their parents.

(Siblings welcome).


A few news items:


The boys did a great job inviting new boys to join the pack!

Current list of Recruiters for our Rally Night is on documents page.

Please let me know if there are any additions by 10 AM Thursday 9/26.

Please also reply to verify whether your son’s guest(s) joined the pack.



Hopefully we can get all applications and fees collected on Thursday.

Only new Cub Scouts need to fill our apps.

Everyone pays the $100 yearly registration fee.

Be sure to let me know if you would like to set up a reduced fee/payment plan.

If you cannot attend Thursday, please drop apps/fees in my mail slot at 836 S. Lombard – by 9 AM Friday, if possible!



If you need to pick up starter kits or additional popcorn, you can do that right after the pack meeting.

Stop over at Brian’s garage: 1024 S. Elmwood.

Flyer with popcorn dates and info attached.

If you are doing online sales, we are:

Des Plaines Valley Council, Twin Lakes District, Pack 4023 (Unit)



Chad Bohlmann has set up a great web site for the pack! (Many thanks, Chad!!!)

Take a look at

We will be filling in with more info as time goes on.

The official calendar will be kept on the website, and many informational documents will be accessible there.

Advancement (tracking your son’s requirements) will be done at Cub Trails – with a link on the pack web site.

See your den leader for log in info.



To make a pack run without burning out the pack leadership, we need to spread the wealth of responsibility around.

If each parent does one job, no one will have to do TOO much.

We will have sign-ups at the pack meeting for committees to manage our various pack projects and events.

Duties range from setting up Blue and Gold Dinner decorations to judging the finish line at the Pinewood Derby.

The jobs are fun, and they make all our jobs easier!


As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
