Pack 113 to hold Cub Scout recruitment

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

MARCUS - The Cub Scout Program is based on age-appropriate activities. The boys are divided into small groups of 6-8 boys (called dens) according to their grade in school. Boys in first grade through fourth grade are eligible to join Cub Scouts. Scouts work on achievements at den meetings and at home to earn their ranks.

Once a month, all dens attend a Pack meeting where the whole family is invited to come.

Cub Scouting is a home and neighborhood-centered program designed to support the values you teach at home. Cub Scouts learn respect for God, country and other people in addition to other positive skills, like: Academic accomplishments, getting along with others, independence, personal achievement, physical dexterity through sports, crafts and games, positive decision-making, sportsmanship by "doing your best" and appreciation for the outdoors.

Pack 113 in Marcus will hold their Annual Fall Sign-Up night this Thursday, Aug. 30 from 5-6 p.m. at the Marcus School Playground. The Pack encourages you to stop by and see what fun and exciting things the program has to offer.

If you are not able to attend the Sign-Up night but would like more information, you may contact Cubmaster Cory Bouchard @ (712) 261-0543 or

If you are outside of the Marcus, Meriden, Cleghorn area and would like to find out how you can get involved in a program in your area, you can contact the Prairie Gold District Executive, Janelle Ehlers @ (712) 584-5394 or
