Pack 171 has a trip planned to the USS North Carolina in Wilmington, Camping at Carolina Beach State Park (Group Site B) and a visit to the Aquarium at Fort Fisher. This is a family friendly camp out so parents and siblings are welcome.
Families should plan to bring their own tents and other camping equipment.
Monday, November 1st
Williamsons Chapel UMC
Pack 171 will be holding a flag retirement ceremony at our November pack meeting. Scouts are one of the only groups authorized to retire American flags. This is a very respectful and meaningful service that has meant a lot to those who have participated in the past. All scouts who are in their Class A uniforms will be able to participate in the ceremony. We will have several honored guests join us as well.
If you have an old or worn flag that you would like to retire, please donate it to the pack for this ceremony.
If you are an active duty or retired member of the military, please let us know! As part of the ceremony we would like to honor your for your service. You are encouraged to wear your uniform to the ceremony.
Our pack will be participating in Scouting for Food again this year. Saturday, November 13th, we will canvas neighborhoods putting door hangers on houses. The next Saturday, November 20th, we will return to the same neighborhoods to collect the food.
All donations will be taken to the Mooresville Soup Kitchen.
Today we will go back to the neighborhoods where we hung door tags last week and collect the food donations. The plan is to start around 9am so we have plenty of time to get back to the church, where the Boy Scout Troop will load the food on to a trailer for delivery to the Mooresville Soup Kitchen.
We will need at least one volunteer from each den with a large vehicle to put the food in and deliver to the church.
Tentative Plan: Christmas caroling at Atria Senior Living Center and Pack 171 holiday event at Lake Norman Elementary School
To celebrate the holidays this year Pack 171 will be having a special December pack meeting on Saturday afternoon. We will start with Christmas caroling at the Atria Senior Living Center to help brighten the holidays for seniors in our community. Please have your scout wear his class A uniform. Click here for directions to Atria.
After caroling, we will head to Lake Norman Elementary School to enjoy Cub Scout holiday games and fun activities. This meeting will take the place of our regular pack meeting for December. The pack will provide pizza for only $5 per family! We request each family sign up to bring a dish to share. So come one and come all. Join us as Pack 171 celebrates the holidays!
