The Lewis and Clark Council featured the “Pie-in-the-face” demonstration from the September Pack meeting on their Facebook page. This was a fun end to a meeting about the start of popcorn sales. Pack 35 is doing very well with their sales so far and hope to continue that success.
The Lewis & Clark Council has just released details on the new BSA online application. New Scouts and leaders/parents can fill out their application online at the following link: https://beascoutmembershipapp.scouting.org/youthpersonal.aspx?UnitID=128871&UnitType=cub
This is an exciting development as our Council is one of a handful of beta locations to be involved in this new program. Feel free to forward the link to your sons friends that want to join in on the fun!
That’s right, it’s time again for Cub Scout Popcorn. Pack 35 has all kinds of great things planned and awesome prizes to be revealed at the next Pack meeting, but take a look at what the top sellers got to do last year.
Every leader got a pie in the face and one got twelve pies! How fun is that?

Haunted Hayride – October 27
We are planning to go to this fun activity on Saturday, October 27 – close to Halloween. See the flyer for details about the upcoming Haunted Hayride at Camp Warren Levis in Godfrey, IL. The cost is $6 per person and under 3 are free. As we get closer to the activity there will be more coordination on time.
See the flyers (Religious Awards for Catholics and Training Classes) on upcoming Catholic religious awards your Scout can earn by Scout Sunday (First Sunday in February.) The Protestant classes are usually held around the first of the year and more information will be available on those when it becomes available.
It’s that time of year again. Time to join Cub Scouts!
If your son has friends who are not in Cub Scouts, why not invite them to join The Mighty 35? We will be holding our fall School Night for Scouting event on Tuesday, August 28 at 6:30pm. Parents will be able to learn more about the Pack and join that night. Cost is only $20 to join.
If your son brings a friend that joins, he will receive a special recruiting patch for his uniform. Patches and Scouting go together like peanut butter and jelly.
Check out all the cool stuff we did this summer:
Our first Pack meeting will be Thursday, August 30 at the Splash Pad in the O’Fallon Sports Park. We’ll see you in a couple of weeks.
