Butler County Pack 208 Update

WOW! Hard to believe another school year is over.  Pack 208 has been very busy. I first want to THANK all of the leaders for making this year wonderful: Jossie Williams, Nickie Saling, Crystal Coleman, Kyle Coleman, Ella Hunt, Cathy Rich, Chris Imbruglio, and Leeann Hudnall- without these adults, the Scouts wouldn’t have earned their ranks, participated in camping trips or the volunteering that was done. We would like to also thank the community for their support- Thank you for buying popcorn and supporting our year-round program. Thank You to All-Star trophies for making our Pinewood Derby trophies. 

We would also like to thank Officer Deweese of the Morgantown City Police Department for helping us through out the year. We want to send a special Thank You to Chris Hughson and the Methodist Men, who are our Charter Organization- they believe in Scouting and the values BSA stands for and they help us help the Scouts become helpful citizens of the future. We would like to say how excited we are about being apart of Lincoln Heritage Council.
Since last year, Pack 208 has been active not only with den and pack meetings but we have done lots of other activities too. We have participated in the Catfish Festival Parade, the Veteran’s Day Parades in both Bowling Green and Morgantown and in the Christmas Parade. Pack 208 participated in roadside cleanings. The Pack passed out water at the Catfish Festival. The Scouts collected school supplies for Family Youth Service Center in July. We held a Round-Up in August and had Officer Deweese, of the Morgantown City Police, to show the Scouts his police car. The Pack participated in a Flag Retirement Ceremony at Wildcat Hollow to honor the 10th Anniversary of 9-11. We held a Halloween Costume Contest at our October Pack meeting where Alex Coleman won for the best original costume. We held a Veteran’s Day Rodeo- the Scouts had to make a stick horse and we had barrel racing, calf roping and bull riding. We also honored our Veteran’s by saying Thank You! The Scouts participated in the public Veteran’s Day program at the high school as well as at the elementary schools. In November, we collected non-perishable food items for  Morgantown Mission. We made Christmas Cards for the Military who were serving overseas. In December, we held a camp-in at the Butler County Extension Office. We passed out prizes from popcorn sales, made Christmas ornaments and held a gift exchange. 

We passed out Pinewood Derby cars so the Scouts could start designing them. The Scouts collected toys for the Family Youth Service Center. The Pack held the annual Blue and Gold Banquet to recognize the Scout’s accomplishments. We held our Pinewood Derby in March. The 3 winners were: 1st Place- Wesley Phelps, 2nd Place- Jared Hudnall and 3rd Place- Martin` Brown. These Scouts went on to the District Pinewood Derby where Wesley Phelps took 1st place. His car came close to running 200 mph.

We have camped out every month with our big camping trip happening during Spring Break. We went to the Smokey Mountains. Pack 208 Scouts have earned lots of belt loops including hiking, fishing and lots of sports belt loops. We will be painting the picnic tables at the city park on May 19th and getting them ready for the Catfish Festival.  We will be camping out this summer as well as having our Bridging Over and pool party. There is also a Cub Scout Day Camp being held in June where the Scouts will be learning lots of new things and will be meeting other Scouts from around the area.
The Committee has already started planning for next school year with a big camping trip coming up during Fall Break. If you are interested in your son joining Cub Scouts Pack 208 and the boy will be entering the 1st Grade or is in any grade up to the 5th Grade, you don’t have to wait for a Round-Up. You may sign him up anytime by calling any of the following people:  Ella Hunt- 999-0431, Kyle Coleman-392-1087, Crystal Coleman- 779-6362, or Leeann Hudnall- 791-3427. We would be happy to get an application to you and talk about Pack 208 and our activities.
