Popcorn: apparently we were #1 in sales for the district. Pack 564 sold more popcorn this year than any other previous year. Huzzah!
Dues: Pack 564 is going to send dues notices to scouts that did not sell $500 of popcorn. If your scout sold less than $500, it will be prorated in some way. Apparently, dues cover the period from January to December, so the dues we paid a few months ago were pro-rated. Also, dues for new scouts are also prorated to be $110 for the first year. Dues for returning scouts is $150 per year. I understand that there are scholarships available for scouts that cannot afford the dues.
There is a pack hike which will be occurring on November 20th, I believe. This is not yet posted to the pack website, but this will be another way for scouts that missed the den hike to complete the Webelos Walkabout requirement.
Re: Holidays around the world, several things. 1 - the pack will be providing pizza for everyone. 2 - suggestions for the presentation: tri-fold poster board with information about the country; flag for the counter; "100" items to give to other scouts - this could be small treats or beverages, or items (like candles for Diwali). Also, we need a "representative" at our table to make sure other scouts don't grab too many treats.
re: the Christmas parade. More details. Looks like we would have to get in line around 230 or so, and the parade actually starts around 4 p.m. There will be a tree lighting at the end and some mention of snow.
Pinewood derby has been pushed to February.
There was some discussion about a spring trip, which would be an overnight trip. One possibility mentioned was the "lost sea" cavern.
I will discuss Harvest for the Hungry details with the scouts that are available to do that.
