Have a good week.
Scout season is HERE!! This Tuesday the 29th at 7pm is our annual recruitment night at St. Stephen UMC.
We are looking for new recruits! We welcome new scouts and their parents to our pack. Please join us for scouting activities and SMORES. Bring friends interested in joining and share the gift of scouting. We will be kicking off the new Lions program for kindergarteners.
I am looking forward to kicking off the Fall season with some fun activities; Popcorn and our September camping trip to Kings Mountain the 22nd through 24th. Our first pack meeting is September the 5th at 6:30pm. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Good Evening Pack 118!
Just reminding you that tonight is the deadline for reserving a spot in the God and Me & God and Family classes that will be held on Saturday, March 7. The classes will start PROMPTLY at 9:00 am and end very close to 3:00 pm. They will include lunch. The cost for this class is $30.00, which will cover the course materials and lunch.
Pack 118 holds this class every two years, which gives each Cub Scout a chance to earn the God and Me award as a Tiger or Wolf, and earn the God and Family award as a Bear or Webelos. We have two great class leaders lined up for you. Both gentlemen have had boys in our Pack, and one of them was even Cubmaster for three years!
If you have done any research into scouting, you have likely come across the number: 4%. This is the overall percentage of Boy Scouts who make it to the rank of Eagle Scout Thanks to an increased interest in scouting, the National Eagle Scout Association is proud to say that the current annual percentage has risen to 5%. The percentage of boys who earn all four P.R.A.Y. program (God and Country) awards: God and Me; God and Family (in Cub Scouting); God and Church; & God and Life (in Boy Scouting) is even lower! This is a great opportunity for your Cub to become closer to God and to open a dialogue about your beliefs with him.
We have a great group of boys already signed up. Please take a moment to consider signing up your Cub Scout. If you have been thinking about it, but just didn’t get around to it (like I usually do), this is your chance to give your Cub Scout a unique opportunity!
Yours In Scouting,
Cubmaster, Pack 118
