Pinewood Derby - Thanks again to our organizers (Adela and Mark Firoozfar, Paul DeRose,and Steve Meyer) for a great race, and good luck to our den winners in the district competition!

April Pack Meeting / Arrow of Light - The April Pack meeting will be the Arrow of Light ceremony, starting at 7:15PM sharp on Wednesday, April 20th. This is an exciting ceremony, with a Native American ritual performed, and the culmination of Cub Scouting for our graduating Webelos II den. The meeting will be held at Fairhaven United Methodist Church, at 12801 Darnestown Rd., the intersections with Norman Dr. and Jones Ln. It will be outdoors with a campfire! Grandparents, other relatives, and friends are welcome and invited. Please dress appropriately and bring chairs or blankets to sit on. In case of inclement weather, the meeting will be held at Jones Lane ES - look for an e-mail if there is a chance of rain. The Webelos I den will be doing the flags.

Pack Hike - Our spring Pack Hike is Sunday April 10 - and apologies again for the confusion with the date. Here's the rest of the info for it:

Spring Family Campout - Our annual spring family campout is April 30-May 1 at Little Bennett Park in Clarksburg. (Note that this is a date change from our previous schedule, which conflicted with Passover.) The cost will be $20 per family for those staying overnight, or $10 if you're joining for Saturday afternoon / evening only - please bring checks to "Pack 436" to the April Pack meeting or drop them off with Eric. (Checks highly preferred to maintain Eric's sanity…)

Also, we'll have a SignUp Genius link coming soon - please keep an eye out for that.

Call for Volunteers - As always, we rely on parent support and participation to keep the Pack moving. As we approach the end of our Scouting year, we're going to have a number of parents in some very critical roles whose sons will be aging out and moving along from Cub Scouts, so we'll have some key positions to fill, including:

If you're interested in any of these, or others (see our SignUpGenius page - - for a fairly full list), please contact Eric. Finally, thanks to those who have already expressed some interest - I'm compiling names and will start getting in touch soon.

Upcoming Spring Events - Mark your calendars for the following events:

Summer Camp - Summer camp is coming up and the first deadlines for registration are approaching in April.
