Blue and Gold Dinner and Webelo II’s Crossover Ceremony
Abracadabra! – This year’s theme is magic…
Expect us to have a few tricks up our sleeve and the Wolf Den is preparing a skit for us!
*The Blue and Gold Dinner is in place of our monthly pack meeting! Please note date and location are different than usual. http://www.lwumc.com/be/find-us/
The Blue & Gold Dinner celebrates the birthday of scouting and gives us an opportunity to give back to this wonderful organization. Please mark your calendars to attend this special event. We will enjoy a meal and then we will celebrate the Crossover Ceremony of our Webelo 2 scouts as they move on to become Boy Scouts! This is a very meaningful night, recognizing the hard work of our Webelos 2 scouts and their leaders. Please make every effort to attend!
The Blue and Gold Event is a fundraiser for Friends of Scouting. The suggested donation is $50 per family which goes to Scouting at the district and national level. For more information, please read the details below.
At the Blue & Gold Dinner, we will be presenting BSA’s annual “Friends of Scouting” campaign. This is the annual fundraiser for Boy Scouts. Money collected from the “Friends of Scouting” campaign goes directly to the Seattle Council of BSA and provides the money necessary for the council to maintain Camps Edwards, Parsons, Pigott and Sheppard; provides liability insurance for all registered youth and leaders; provides full-time executive staff and office support; provides training; offers council and district activities such as camporees, day camps and recognition dinners; and many other ‘behind the scenes’ programs and expenses.
Each Troop and Pack in the Council is asked to raise funds toward the Friends of Scouting campaign to support these important programs. The council estimates that the cost of sustaining one youth in the Chief Seattle Council is $124 per year, and they would appreciate a $50 donation from each family. However any amount that you are able to donate is greatly appreciated. Every contribution, both big and small, makes a difference!
Please take some time to consider the benefits scouting offers your boy(s) and consider what your family might be able to donate toward our pack’s Friends of Scouting Campaign at the Blue & Gold Dinner on Tuesday, February 17th. We will be collecting donations that evening – cash or checks should be written directly to the Seattle Council, BSA.
