  • Caleb Catozzo earned the rank of Scout.  Kudos!

Gratitude from Pack 150:
  • Kudos to our young men who helped Pack 150 with their family camp last weekend.  They did a wonderful job.  Cubmaster Dominic and other leaders were extremely appreciative of the boys helping out.  The flag retirement was a hit but probably our scouts playing games with them was the cubs favorite. We are invited to their pack picnic on June 16th, and request we set up the monkey bridge setup again.
