New Cubmaster! As you all know, Gerard Mulford will be wrapping up his service to our Pack as Cubmaster, as his sons move along into Boy Scouting. We thank Gerard for his service, and we're very pleased to announce that Howie Draisen has agreed to take on the role of Cubmaster. Howie is an Eagle Scout, currently working as a civilian engineer for the US Navy. Please join us in thanking Howie, and in wishing him every success in the role.

May Pack Meeting - Advancement - May 18 th - Our next Pack Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 18th starting at 7:15 SHARP at JLES. This is the "advancement" meeting where ALL of our scouts will receive their rank awards and "graduate" to the next level of Cub Scouting. Please plan on attending with siblings, neighbors, relatives, and friends. Don't forget your cameras! The Webelos I and Bear dens have setup; Tigers have opening and closing ceremonies; all will help clean up. Please also remember that this will be the boys' last chance to earn achievements towards their current ranks (except for the current Webelos I den); after this they'll begin working on advancements towards their next rank.

Congratulations to Kathy Quinlan and Eric Victory! Both will be receiving the Seneca District Outstanding Unit Scouter award, in recognition for their dedicated leadership to the Pack. Kathy has been our Webelos den leader for the last 2 years and has also been our Pack Treasurer this year. Eric started out as the Tiger den leader and is now our Committee Chair. Kathy and Eric, the Pack thanks you for your service. There will be a dinner on Tuesday May 24th to recognize Kathy and Eric and to present the awards - contact Eric if you're interested in attending (information and registration can be found at https://scoutingevent.com/?CoH)

Adult Volunteers: As we approach the end of the current Scouting year, we ask for at least one adult in every family to take on one of our adult leadership roles - everything we do is the result of our parents having organized it. We're going to be losing a number of our most key adult leaders this year, so it's particularly important that we get them filled in order to keep the Pack functioning. This is also a great opportunity for your son to see you as a leader. Several in particular that we'll need next year:

Thanks! For those who had a chance to participate, the Pack Hike, the Spring Campout and our annual service project to Jones Lane were all great successes:

Summer Camp: Outdoor camping is one of the great things the boys get to do as Scouts, and all the boys have the opportunity to attend a camp this summer:

Pack Summer Activities: Stay tuned to email over the summer - we're going to try to schedule an event or two this summer, like a picnic, Frederick Keys game, BBQ, meet-up-at-the-swimming-pool, bowling, etc. Better yet, if you would like to coordinate any of these events, please let Eric know ASAP. Thank you!
