This Saturday, November 17th, is the final part of our November service, as GIFT Food Pantry, needs help with their annual Thanksgiving Food Handout, where they provide 125 Thanksgiving meals for the less fortunate in our community.
Help is needed starting at 8:30 AM until 11:00 AM at the church (442 South Route 73, Berlin, NJ) to help pack food bags, and then to help carry bags and frozen turkeys to cars. Scouts are asked to wear their “Class A” Cub Scout uniforms if they have them, and winter gloves are HIGHLY recommended for carrying turkeys! Please come out and help if you can!
November was our month of “Hometown Heroes”! We made cards to thank the veterans at the VFW, took fingerprints like police officers, and ran through a firefighters obstacle course! Fun pack meeting!
Big thank you to our Tigers and Wolves who came out to collect food today for G.I.F.T Food Pantry in Berlin as well as the churches of West Berlin. In two hours, we (with Troop 48) collected 475 food items total! Great job Cubs!
Thank you cards we made for the members of the Berlin VFW.
On Veteran’s Day, we’d like to take a chance to thank the veterans of the Berlin VFW for serving our country, and for all the support that they give Pack 48. We couldn’t do it without these fine men and women!
October 19th, our Wolves and Bears went on a night hike at Berlin Park. Sounded like a lot of fun!
Another first for Pack 48 as we had our first ever Popcorn Show-and-Sell at Shop Rite of Berlin on Saturday, October 13th. BIG thank you to all of our families who helped out, Ms. Alix for organizing the day, and of course to Shop Rite of Berlin for having us!
Biggest thank you to everyone who bought popcorn to support Scouting!
One of our Cubs went down to Delaware for the first ever Scout Day at the Dover Speedway! He got to check out the track, go to a Q&A with NASCAR driver Jimmy Johnson, and then watch Sunday’s race. Sounds like a great day!
The first weekend of October, Pack 48 ventured up to Pine Tree Camp in Tabernacle for our Fall campout! A two mile nature hike, nuke ‘em, Gaga ball, tinfoil meal dinners, s’mores, and flashlight tag… great day!
BIG thank you to Mr. Holmes for taking care of the food arrangements and to all of the parents for helping out with the weekend!
We kicked off October with a series of SPOOKY games! Spider races, pin the smile on the skeleton (or somewhere relatively close to him), and other games were a great time!
