We are requesting an emphasis on baskets that are scout/family friendly, but nothing wrong with a few for the adults. The baskets will be collected by the Webelos 2. Include your name and den, baskets should be covered in wrap to help in the transport. The reservation form can be found in the 'forms' section. All reservations will need to in by 2/12 with payments. Leaders and Scouts are free and for any family members it will be $35 for adults and $18 for children under 14. Reservation forms can either be mailed to Jennifer Sadowski (23 Fenner Place, Wayne, NJ 07470) or given to your den leader who will pass to Jennifer by the 12th.

Our next Pack Meeting is this Friday, November 18 at 7pm in Father Rugell Hall.
