Hello Pack 703 Families!
Pack 703’s annual Blue and Gold Luncheon is fast approaching (Saturday, March 25th, 11am-1pm.) This event is where we celebrate our Webelo II’s crossing over into the Boy Scouts and serves as our Pack Meeting for the month of March. We will have fun GAMES and ACTIVITIES, FOOD and lots of RAFFLE PRIZES to give away.
Our Theme for this year is Around the Campfire and that means we will have lots of camping and hiking-related atmosphere and activities, and it’s very appropriate since those things are so important to Scouting.
Each Rank will be responsible for some contributions to help make the event a success.
As usual, each Rank will be responsible for a single table centerpiece that should be designed with the “Around the campfire” theme in mind, so it should reflect Camping, Hiking and/or Scouting in general. Den Leaders, please work with your individual ranks to make that a reality and perhaps we will judge the centerpieces and award a prize or two based on quality or how aptly the piece fits the theme.
Aside from that, each Rank will be responsible for one menu item according to the following list:
Wolves: Potato Salad
Webelo I: Fruit
So far our registered count for this event is at 75 or so, but we hope to get that closer to or surpassing 100 so I would plan for your menu items to be part of a meal for around 100.
If you are reading this and have not registered then you can do so by contacting our Events Coordinator Britni Cress. All Scouts are encouraged to attend at no cost and any guests of theirs will be registered at a cost of only $5 per person (children under 4 are also free). Payment can be arranged for whenever is convenient.
We will also be collecting at the Blue and Gold for a Canned Food Drive so that we can give back to our community. Please bring any pantry items that we can add to that collection.
Where: First United Methodist Church, 56 Whitlock Ave SW, Marietta, GA 30064 (the same church where we had the Pinewood Derby, although a different room)
When: Saturday, March 25th, 11am-1pm
If you would like to volunteer to assist with setup before the event then please contact me here.
For any questions about the event, please email myself or Britni Cress.
Thanks everyone! Looking forward to having a great luncheon!
