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
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
