NORTHERN LIGHTS DISTRICT, NORTHERN STAR COUNCIL
Cub Scout Pack 234 is chartered by the Westphal American Legion in Robbinsdale, MN and we meet at Family of God Lutheran Church in Brooklyn Park, MN. We celebrated our 22nd anniversary this year as we became a chartered pack in 1989. We work closely with Boy Scout Troop 234 and share the same Charter Organization and meeting place with them.
Pack 234 is committed to helping boys in grades K through 5 learn more about themselves, their community, and their nation through the principles of Cub Scouting. We visit police stations and fire houses, we do community service projects, visit museums, zoos, and go camping. The boys enjoy doing arts & crafts at our Den Meetings and do various projects to earn awards that they recieve at the monthly Pack Meetings. We have an annual Pinewood Derby Race where the boys make cars from wood (with a parent's assistance) & we race them. We also have a large Blue & Gold Banquet each year to celebrate the rank advancements earned by the boys.
All boys and their families are welcome regardless of race, creed, or religion. We would love to have you come and visit us at a meeting. For more information about Cub Scouting, check out http://northernlights.nsbsa.org/ or http://www.adventureiscalling.org/ .
We will be handing out wreath sale packets at Den Meetings on October 1st. This is our primary fundraiser for the year and helps us to pay for activities and special events. Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles, neighbors, and co-workers all love Cub Scout wreaths and are easy to sell to. We have always sold Mickman Brothers wreaths (from Ham Lake, MN), so they are a local company and they use renewable harvesting methods to obtain their product.
October 13 at 10:30 am, we will be meeting at the Twin Cities Corn Maze for an afternoon of fun! Cost is $8.00 per person; 36" & under are free. They are located at the corner of 109th Ave. & Hwy 169 in Brooklyn Park.
October 21 is the Fall Festival Day Camp at Base Camp. Watch for sign-up sheets at our Den Meetings. Cost is $30 per scout & siblings and $10 for adults.
