May 2017 Pack Meeting - Crossover

May 18th, 7:00pm at the FPC

This is a reminder of our Crossover Pack meeting this Thursday night.  This is a very fun and important Pack meeting. All boys must wear their class A uniforms. This is where all the boys cross over to their new rank of Scouting. All the boys will cross the wooden crossover bridge on stage and the Webelos 2's will cross the rope crossover monkey bridge that the Boy Scouts will setup in the front lawn of the church. Please plan on being there because we will take a picture of the whole Pack in front of the monkey bridge at the end of the meeting.
