For Pack 48’s first official Blue & Gold banquet, our theme is 1st Birthday because we’ve made it a whole year!
Who can come?: Cub Scouts and their families! Cubs will wear their Class A uniform. Parents and families are welcome to dress comfortable.
What is a “Blue & Gold”? Blue & Gold is the name of the yearly Cub Scout banquet to celebrate the birthday of the Scout program, recognize the pack leaders, and other adults instrumental to the pack’s success. Most importantly, it is a time to celebrate our Cub Scouts. It’s also our time to say goodbye to our Arrow of Light Scouts, as they leave us for the fun of Boy Scouts.
When is it? Sunday, March 24, 2019 2pm-5pm
Where is it? The Berlin VFW, 34 Chestnut Ave, Berlin, NJ

How can parents help?
- Help is needed the day of the event with set up and clean up. Set up will begin at 1pm. If you are available, please come and help.
- One part of the ceremony will involve face paint. Any Cub who does not want to have their face painted will have a mask that can be held up and painted instead. Please let Miss Irene know if your child will need a mask. Masks are wooden and held up by the child with a popsicle stick. Nothing fancy or scary.
- It would be nice to have a chaplain or priest or preacher for the Invocation. Anyone know anyone (job comes with dessert!)?
