Welcome to Pack 216 from Trussville, AL

Cubmaster Minutes

Cub Scouts; what a great organization for your kids to be a part of. Oh the things that they can learn and experience; the adventures that they can have, the memories that they will make, the lessons that they will learn. When I think back to my days as a Cub Scout I am awed by amazing times I had. But you know what? If it were not for the generosity of my parents and others like them who gave their valuable time to make it possible for me to live out the life of a scout. It is the parents and other adults who make scouting possible for our kids and right now we are in need of your help. We currently have several opportunities for you to become an even greater part of Pack 216 which I have no doubt will make the Pack stronger and more exciting for all of our kids. My motto for the year is,

"If we all do a little, no one will have to do a lot".

The problem is that we do not have enough help to make this motto a reality so if you have a desire to make scouting a better experience for you kid and all the kids in Pack 216 please contact us to see where you can help out. Some of the positions that we need to fill are:

Assistant Cubmaster
Assistant Treasurer
Outings Coordinator
Quartermaster
Membership Coordinator
Training Coordinator
Assistant Popcorn Kernel
Den Leaders
Assistant Den Leaders

Scouting is only as good as its leaders and right now we need you to make it better.

Sincerely,

Mark Ellenberger

What is a Cub Scout?

Cub Scouting is for boys in 1st grade through 5th grade. (Age 6 though 11) We have Pack meetings once a month and Den meetings vary from 2-4 times a month.

Cub Scouts build friendships, experience and life-building skills.

We sell popcorn in the fall and exceptional individual popcorn sales can offset the fees and maybe camps, etc.

Being a Cub Scout means you are a member of a worldwide youth movement that stands for certain values and beliefs. Cub Scouting is more than something to do. It's all about the boy you are and the person you will become.

Read a WELCOME from the Cubmaster.


Cub Scout Motto:

Do Your Best

Cub Scout Colors

The Cub Scout colors are blue and gold.
The blue stands for truth and spirituality, steadfast loyalty, and the sky above. The gold stands for warm sunlight, good cheer, and happiness. Together, they symbolize what Cub Scouting is all about.

Law of the Pack

The Cub Scout follows Akela.
The Cub Scout helps the pack go. The pack helps the Cub Scout grow.

Courage

Being brave and doing what is right regardless of our fears, the difficulties, or the consequences. Exploring new territory and challenging oneself with new skills takes a certain amount of courage. Cub Scouts will benefit from hikes this month in many ways.
