Uniform Information

  1. For Den Meetings, Cubs can wear Class-B (any Boy Scout themed) t-shirt or the Class-B Pack (has "145" on it) shirt to allow for messy crafts or active play.  
  2. For Pack Meetings and any events with Veterans, Cubs should wear Class-A (blue or tan) uniform with perferably the neckerchief and slide as a FULL uniform.
  3. However, it is OK to wear the uniform shirt without the neckerchief and slide to a Pack Meeting! It is A-OK, if a Cub want to wear their uniform shirt with or without the neckerchief and slide to a Den Meeting. 
  4. NEW this year from National BSA:  Cub Scouts can wear JUST the neckerchief and slide over a solid colored shirt to any Den or Pack meeting.
  5. Pack 145 does NOT require offical BSA pants, shorts, socks or hats.  Those are considered optional.
  6. No hurry on purchasing or exchanging any uniform part from the Pack 145 Clothing Bank. If Pack 145 doesn't have your size, a shirt can be ordered from the Scout Store via your Den Leader.
  7. The November Pack Meeting will have a very casual uniform inspection from our Troop 145 Boy Scouts.

Den #2 Plastic Film Collection
Last year, the Wolf Cubs started a campaign to rid the environment of plastic litter!  Now, Pack 145 has 2 benches around the campfire pit.  The Bear Cubs of Den #2 will continue their collection in the Activity Building in October 2019 for more benches in/around St. Paul UMC.  Look for the collection box in/near the kitchen area.   

Pack 145 is a wonderful promotion of Cub Scouting skills and values, all made possible by volunteer leaders who are greatly supported by the Pack Committee and the St. Paul UMM, our charter organization. MORE LEADERS ARE GREATLY NEEDED!  The den schedule of 1 time a month for 2 hours is to accommodate busy adult and youth schedules.   Please consider the rewards and beneifts of completing an Adult Application and some minor online training!  Please help Pack 145 comply with  the policy of "2-Deep" Leadership.  Please contact Cubmaster Henry, if any questions.
 

 

 

Lion Cub Scout Program Success at Pack 145 
As a Lion, a kindergartner will make friends, laugh loud, gain confidence, discover nature, and most of all…have fun! He’ll experience the Scouting concepts of character development, leadership, citizenship, and personal fitness through engaging and exciting adventures!! Your kindergartener will have a blast exploring the world around him in ways that fuel his imagination and creativity. Together, you’ll take his first steps down the path to success. Adventure awaits. It has been a success so far.  Please spread the word to help us recruit in April, through the summer and before school starts.

National Acceptance of Girls into Cub Scout PacksWelcomeToCubScouts
Pack 145 was approached to be the first unit in Christiansburg to accept girls into the Cub Scouting program.   Our charter organization, St. Paul United Methodist Men have voted to allow this family-oriented option of an integrated Pack with segregated Dens. Pack 145 Leaders/Committee is examining the logistics involved.  For now, Pack 145 is allowing girls with their adult partners to be integrated into Lions and Tiger Cub Scouts.  Then, Wolf, Bears and Webelos will have separate girl dens and boy dens.  All Pack activities will continue to be "ALL-IN" for girls, boys, and family members as we have done for many, many years!   Let's make the most of the Scouting program has to offer!  

 

 sportsballsScouts and Sports together make a balanced diet of activities! Scouting is flexible enough for a Cub Scout to excel at both, and many Scouts do. Scouting encourages a well-rounded balance of activities, and a Boy Scout doesn’t have to attend every Scouting event.  No one should have to feel that it is "Scouts verus Sports" situation.
Pack 145 supports its Cub Scout players in various sports thoughout the seasons!  As Pack 145 starts a new Scout Year and should a Cub Scout be unavailable for any meeting or other activity,  please stay in communication with Den Leader and Cubmaster so we can all be your "cheering section"  in Sport AND in Scouting!  As always, we look forward to your attendance to any of the Pack planned activities!
