Bring an old worn-out flag for the “Flag Retirement Ceremony”

The United States Flag Code states: "The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning. (Disposal of Unserviceable Flags Ceremony) ".

In scouting and many other groups, the disposal of these flags are done at a Flag Retirement Ceremony.  Please join Boy Scout Troop 463 (our affiliated Troop) as we hold a flag retirement ceremony at the beginning part of our Pack Meeting tomorrow night.

*Please bring a flag that meets the criteria mentioned above.  The ceremony is one the kids find really special and is very well received

Popcorn Awards

Kernel Kirk will be giving out the Popcorn awards at the pack meeting.  The presentations will be given both the dens and to the scouts who sold popcorn.

Congratulations Pack on a job very well done this year!

Pinewood Derby Kickoff!

The kickoff for the Pinewood Derby is tomorrow night.  We will hand out the cars as well as go over rules, dates, and other important information.  The Pinewood Derby is the morning of Saturday, January 29th, with check-in the night before. The following is a word from this year’s Pinewood Derby Chair:

“It is Pinewood Derby time again and I am very excited to be the Chairperson of this fun event.  I will be handing out cars to all of the Den leaders to give to their respective dens.  I will be seeking out volunteers to help me with the Derby both at the event and helping me coordinate the event before the actual event.  My email address is if anyone has any questions, recommendations, or comments.  I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the Pack meeting tomorrow night.”

Thank you,
Brian Lefkoff
