Den Sponsorship of events
I first must say thank you to all of our Uniformed and Registered leaders for all you do to help Pack 34 succeed. I encourage all parents and scouts to stop and thank a uniformed leader when you get a chance. Without these Men and Women, we would not have the kind of program our scouts enjoy.
Den Leaders, I am asking for dens to sponsor some of our smaller events. the job of Championing an event is to work with our Events ACM (James Gracy) to coordinate the event planning. Any communication needed can be handled by Our Communications ACM (Christina Mueller) Your den leadership and parents volunteers will act as on point to organize the event.
