Blue & Gold

Celebrating the anniversary of Scouting

Our special day is fast approaching

Blue & Gold is a celebration of the Scouting anniversary and highlights the achievements of our Webelos II den as they receive the highest honor in Cub Scouts, the Arrow of Light. Completing their journey in Cub Scouts we will be honoring their commitment to scouting as they cross over to continue their journey in Boy Scouts.

As part of our celebration, we have dinner and entertainment to make the evening more enjoyable for all.


Our special entertainment event for this evening is The Reptile Roadshow, Greg Greer. If you went to Spooky-ree with us two years ago this gentleman and his array of reptiles and creepy crawly animals was a big hit. He is bringing the adventure to us.


As with previous years, we do cover the cost of the Scouts in the pack but do ask that other family members tickets are paid for by you. Please let us know how many will be attending our Blue & Gold Celebration.

Webelos Arrow of Light - Den 1

Abel Adamu

Abel was new to scouting this year and quickly fit in having attended the same school as the other scouts he already knew many of the. He enjoyed the meetings that he attended stating, "they were always fun". His favorite, though, was attending the USS Alabama and sleeping on the ship. He is planning on continuing his scouting career with Troop 431.

Alex Beatty

Alex Beatty began his scouting career as a Tiger with Pack 845. Mr. Hannah has taught him many things including safety and respect. He has enjoyed the Pinewood Derby, loves to attend scout outings and recently served as a Hike Leader. Alex wants to be a Robotics Engineer when he grows up. He has joined Troop 431, as a Boy Scout and has his sites set on becoming an Eagle Scout.

Connor Matthias

Conner joined pack 845 as a Wolf. He has enjoyed his follow den mates along with the Spooky-Ree, USS Alabama, and hikes. He is helpful, kind, cheerful, mentally awake and morally straight.

He will be continuing his Scouting career with Troop 431 and looks forward to growing his baseball and school studies through middle school. He has developed many leadership qualities in scouting and has expressed an interest in becoming a teacher someday!

Erik Goepfert

Erik joined Pack 845 as a Tiger Cub. He has enjoyed so many activities, including the Pinewood Derby, Hiking Blood Mountain, Archery and shooting BB Guns. Erik has joined Troop 431, as a Boy Scout and is looking forward to their many camping activities.

Hunter Burch

Hunter Burch began his scouting career as a Tiger with Pack 845. His favorite Cub Scout activities were Twilight Camp and learning to shoot a bow and arrow. His most memorable moments include whittling ,"what goes in the fire, stays in the fire" and "don't stick your marshmallow in the middle of the fire, find a small flame on the side". For the younger scouts, Hunter advises to not fool around on the stage during the skits, because people will laugh at you. Hunter has joined Troop 431, as a Boy Scout and is looking forward to their monthly camping outings.

Jacob Sausmer

Jacob joined Den 1 this year and has completed many of the activities towards his Arrow of Light. His favorite scout activities were the Pinewood Derby and the trip to the battleship Alabama. He enjoyed being the first aid leader on a recent hiking trip and was at the ready when a younger scout skinned his knee on a fall. He, like his friends, has already signed up for Troop 431.

Kyler Darden

Kyler started in scouts as a wolf, he enjoyed the outdoor activities such as hiking and camping with his fellow den members.

As Kyler crosses over to become a Boy Scout, he is excited to be able to maintain those brotherly bonds with most of his original den and he is optimistic about all the opportunities that awaits him with Troop 431.

Max Lattunen

Joining as a Webelos, Max has learned many new skills under the leadership of Mr. Hannah. Scouting has given an outlet from suburbia with the cool hikes, camping trips and den activities. He would like to become an engineer when he grows up but currently he is fully occupied in the World of Mine Craft. Max is looking forward to the transition to Boy Scouts where the activities will be more independent and youth lead. Max will also be joining Troop 431 this year.

Miles Donnenwerth

Miles joined Pack 845 as a Tiger in Mr. Hannah's Den 1. Under Mr. Hannah's direction, scouting has taught Miles more about caring for the people and world around him. From performing Christmas carols for the assisted living residents and cleaning up the local cemetery and parks, to attending outings like hiking trips and the aircraft carrier overnight in Charleston, Miles has enjoyed the experience of being a Cub Scout. Moving up to Boy Scouts is the next step -- and the adventure continues

Reece Hannah

Reece began scouting as a Tiger when he and his dad decided to join Scouting together as a Tiger Cub and a Den Leader. Over the years, Reece has taken on multiple leadership roles including that of Senior Denner, running several pack meetings as well as the opening ceremony at the 2016 Pinewood Derby. He has loved being a part of Den 1 and Pack 845 and feels that the most important thing he has learned from scouting is how to be a good citizen. His favorite memories include Spooky-Ree, the Pinewood Derby as well as the Twilight camp where they made pizzas over an open fire. He has loved the friendships he has made within the pack and looks forward to seeing a lot of them in Boy Scout Troop 431.

Simon Pellegri

Simon Pellegri joined Cub Scouts as a Wolf and quickly came to love the creative approach Mr. Hannah took to running the den meetings. Simon's favorite Cub Scouting event was definitely the Spooky Ree fall campout. Always brave when it comes to trying outdoor activities, Simon especially loves ziplining and skiing. He's looking forward to combining his love of outdoor adventures with his interest in cooking by taking his first turn as Grubmaster in Boy Scout Troop 431.

Trey Harding

Trey Harding joined Pack 845 as a Tiger Cub. Scouting has been an important part of Trey's life the last 5 years. Trey has thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities, meetings and camp outs. But it is the camaraderie and friendship he's developed with his den mates and his Den Leader that have helped shape the boy Trey is now and an invaluable part of the foundation to the man he will become.

Parting thought

A good positive attitude can truly change the way you approach life, and your future. Let me illustrate with a short story.

A few years ago, there was a wildlife organization out west that offered a bounty of $5000 for captured wolves.
Two friends, Sam and Jed, decided to make their fortune. Day and night, they scoured the mountains and forests looking for their valuable prey.
Exhausted one night, after searching for many days with no luck, they fell asleep dreaming of their potential fortune.
Suddenly, Sam woke up a bit startled, and saw that they were surrounded by a huge pack of nearly 70 wolves with searing black eyes, and bared teeth. Low growls rumbling from their throats.

He slowly reached over and nudged his friend and said "Jed, wake up."
"I think we're rich!"

Gentlemen, Sam had a positive attitude. I hope you do, too.
