Committee / Parent Meeting is Tomorrow!


The Pack Committee helps ensure that our Cub Scouts are offered fun-filled and meaningful events through the year. 

Parents please attend and help enrich and strengthen our Pack. Topics include upcoming pack meeting plans, assignments for the next month and upcoming large-scale activities.  

We have a few leadership roles we would love to have filled and just by coming to these meetings -- you could help the Pack tremendously!  You can RSVP on Scoutbook or just show up!  The meeting agenda link will be posted in the Comments field below the event on the ScoutBook calendar.  We ask that you please print your own (no wasted paper).

The meeting is at 7pm at the Scout House on Monday, July 31.  We will be finalizing the budget, discussing fundraising, addressing leadership, finalizing the fall camp out, making plans for back-to-school recruitment and the raingutter regatta and more.  Come join us!

Mabel's Labels Fundraiser

Believe it or not, it's time to start thinking about BACK TO SCHOOL shopping!  You'll be needing to label lunch boxes, waterbottles, athletic wear, shoes, jackets, school supplies, backpacks and we have partnered up for a fundraiser with one of the best sites for personalized labels -- namely, Mabel's Labels.  

You can visit Mabel's Labels by clicking THIS LINK.  You will be taken to the fundraising action page.  Under the box on the left, click the orange bar to scroll down and find "CUB SCOUT PACK 1910".  This will take you to our Pack's page within the Mabel's Labels fundraising selections.  From there... start checking out all their awesome options! 

I can attest that the quality is TOP NOTCH... dishwasher safe, waterproof, microwave safe... I've put them on everything from favorite blankets to stuffed animal tags to Matchbox cars to Scout handbooks to backpacks to sippy cups to headphones to every... single... solitary piece of camping equipment my Boy Scouts own --including their eating utensils, chairs and sleeping bags!

You needn't be part of Cub Scout Pack 1910 to order so feel free to invite your family and friends to do their back to school shopping here too!!  

Oh, and did I mention -- FREE SHIPPING?!

Enter The Boy's Life 2017 Say Yes To Reading Contest!

Write a one-page report titled “The Best Book I Read This Year” and enter it in the Boys’ Life 2017 “Say Yes to Reading!” contest.

The book can be fiction or nonfiction. But the report has to be in your own words — 500 words tops. Enter in one of these three age categories:
  • 8 years old and younger
  • 9 and 10 years old
  • 11 years old and older

First-place winners in each age category will receive a $100 gift card from Second-place winners will receive a $75 gift card; third-place winners, a $50 gift card.

Everyone who enters will get a free patch like the one on this page. (And, yes, the patch is a temporary insignia, so it can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform shirt, on the right pocket. Proudly display it there or anywhere!) In coming years, you’ll have the opportunity to earn different patches.

The contest is open to all Boys’ Life readers. Be sure to include your name, address, age and grade in school on the entry.

Send your report, along with a business-size, self-addressed, stamped envelope, to:

Boys’ Life Reading Contest
P.O. Box 152079
Irving, TX 75015-2079

Entries must be postmarked by Dec. 31, 2017 and must include entry information and a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
