Pack Newsletter – August 2017

We have a couple events coming up and there are very few signed up! Consider attending and having some fun with our pack!

Please note, I had the date correct, but the weekday wrong for our Sounders Game. I still have and minimum of 12 tickets to sell, so sign up and ask some of your friends if they might like to attend a Sounders Game!

August Swimming at Strattonwood

Saturday, August 5th 10am – 12pm
Strattonwood Swim Club, 7616 139th Place NE, Redmond, WA 98052.

Sign Up Strattonwood HERE

You may bring a drink, but no glass containers, please; this prevents accidents on the pool deck that can cause cuts to bare feet. The Pack will provide popsicles/ice cream or some other yummy treat.

This is a great opportunity for scouts, especially Webelos and Bears!! to earn swimming related advancements, so be sure to read up on the requirements before you come.
