Thanksgiving  Food Drive

Most of us think of Thanksgiving as a time to spend with families and be thankful for the food on our plate. Many people in our own community and school district will not have a Thanksgiving meal as they should.

Pack 230 Is supporting The Saint Ignatius Social Action Committee Annual Turkey Drive with our annual Scouting for Food service project. Bags were distributed at Sunday’s meeting and food will be collected at the November 14 meeting. (Any bags will do!)

Thanksgiving-themed items:Boxed mashed potatoes • Boxed turkey stuffing • Canned / bottle turkey gravy • Boxed cornbread mix • Canned yams • Canned corn • Canned green beans • Canned cranberry • Brownie mix • Small vegetable oil • Jar of applesauce

We are accepting any other non-perishable food donations for those in need.
Please ask your family, friends, and neighbors to contribute to our food drive.

It’s that time again. WCC Shooting Sports will run our monthly Air Rifle Competition and Cub Scout BB Shootout. It will be on the second Sunday of each month, from September thru May inside Fosters Hall at Ockanickon Scout Reservation. Follow the link below to register online for the BB Shootout. Air Rifle Competition does not require advanced registration.

Come out to Ockanickon Scout Reservation and enjoy the opportunity to shoot BB guns with other Cubs, Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts. (Sorry Lion Cubs are not permitted)

Learn how to shoot from NRA Certified Instructors, BB Rangemasters and Coaches.

Safety is our #1 priority. An NRA Range Safety Officer will be on staff.  (continue reading…)

  • REQUIREMENTS (Keep copies for yourself, The School, and the Parish)
  • Please Contact Mark Pellegrino, Chartered Organization Representative, with questions.
  • Parents cannot go on trips unless they have their clearances.
  • We have recommended that all parents, even if they are not registering, get their clearance so there is no confusion.
  • Anyone who has contact with youth as a volunteer with Troop or Pack 230 must take PROTECTING GOD’S CHILDREN TRAINING CLASS. If you are a registered leader you must take this class. Committee members or parents who do not have contact with youth do not need to take this class, but it is highly recommended, and required for transporting Scouts not your child or attending activities with them where there will be other children.

    If any Cub Scout would like to earn one of the Catholic religious medals, please email Jen Wiggins. She will be coordinating the purchase of the activity booklets and the distribution of the medals. The totals for these items come to $20. Please PayPal or make checks payable to “Pack 230.”

The booklets have about 20 little activities the boys are supposed to complete; most only take 10 minutes or so. Then in March or April, they’ll meet in the rectory to discuss what they did. In May at our Scout Mass, celebrated just before the Blue and Gold dinner, The medals will be blessed and presented to the boys after the homily.

First and second grade Cub Scouts can earn the Light of Christ medal. (Although it seems working on the Light of Christ medal is better geared to a second grader than a first grader, but first graders are still eligible.) Third, fourth, and fifth grade cub scouts can earn the Parvuli Dei medal.
