January 2020 Newsletter

Happy New Year to all our scouts and families! I hope you all had a wonderful vacation and are ready to jump in to a new year of scouting!  

 We are looking forward to meeting again as a pack and individual dens in January. See you soon! 

Wednesday, January 15, 6:30-8:00 at Ben Rush Elementary Commons
Pack Meeting: Science!
FIZZ! POP! BOOM! The audience will be amazed when the Mad Scientist is able to defy gravity in this energetic and spectacular special event. The children will be enthralled with the exotic sounds of the didgeridoo tubes. They will watch as the Mad Scientist creates an extra hand, to help with some of the more complicated experiments. An explosion of foam will help to end this event and leave the audience begging for more. You won’t want to miss it!   

Reminder: Please bring checkbooks to pay for the Museum of Flight Overnight event. 

January 24-25 and February 1-2
Pack Outing: Museum of Flight Overnight
As part of this event, we’ll be building rockets, going on a private tour of the museum’s galleries, and taking part in a 2-hour interactive flight program in the Aviation Learning Center. Then a sleepover at the Museum! The program starts at 6pm, and ends at 9am the next morning. There are more details in the signup pages. It is OK to signup if the event is full. You will be added to a waitlist. Currently the first weekend has a short waitlist, and the second weekend has a few more spots.
