Need something fun to do this summer?  See below for the activities from Pack 530. Remember attendance at any 3 activities earns the National Summertime Activity award; summer camps count toward the award, too!


Run For The Wall

Details at http://www.rftw.org/.  The run in the St. Louis area is on Monday May 20th.

The purpose of RFTW is “to promote healing among ALL veterans and their families and friends, to call for an accounting of all Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action (POW/MIA), to honor the memory of those Killed in Action (KIA) from all wars, and to support our military personnel all over the world. 

Motorcyclists join predetermined routes and will arrive in Wentzville @5pm to spend the night at VFW Post 5327 (1414 Highway Z) en route to the Capital.         

Scouts and other supporters line the streets as the riders parade through, then join them at the VFW for fellowship afterward (would be good to have more participation for this).

Memorial Day Good Turn

Since 1951 the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of the St. Louis area have been placing flags on the 130,000 graves at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery as part of the annual Good Turn.

Gates open at 11 a.m. and we should enter at the entrance of the National Guard base (adjacent to the cemetery). The precession starts at 12:30 and the ceremony starts at 1 p.m. Make sure to bring plenty of water and a snack or sack lunch, and rain gear (just in case).

Blue & Gold - Feb 17 @4:30

posted Feb 7, 2013, 8:57 PM by Pack 530   [ updated Apr 17, 2013, 7:01 PM ]

Blue and Gold is a chance for us to get together, share a meal, and celebrate 
several things. It is a chance for us to honor all of the many award winners from the Pinewood Derby this year! 


The theme of this year’s Blue and Gold is the 60th Anniversary of the Pinewood Derby! So we will definitely be celebrating those awards. Some of our scouts will be earning awards that they have worked on in their dens or individually, such as belt loops.


The biggest part of our celebration though will be the Crossover of our Webelos II! The Boy Scout Pack 533 will be on site to aid us in this part of our ceremony. On a fun note, there will be a cake decorating contest! These are intended to be a family effort, so be creative and remember our theme!!!


Blue & Gold Banquet is Sunday, Feb 17 at 4:30pm at Francis Howell North HS

Volunteer Positions Open

posted Oct 17, 2012, 8:26 PM by Pack 530   [ updated Apr 17, 2013, 7:01 PM ]

We have a couple of positions that are opening up in case you're looking for a way to help out Pack 530 with your time and talent:

-Lions' Club Cleanup Chair:  Cindy Akihiro, currently holds this position and will be bridging over with her WeBeLoS-II son by February of 2013 and we will need somebody to succeed her in this capacity.  NOW would be a great time to get with her on how to do this job and learn all her tricks, secrets, and "methods to her madness" to get this job done for our Chartering Organization.

-Unit Religious Emblems Coordinator: this is a new position in the Scouting organization.  I included some information about this in a .pdf file entitled "ReligiousEmblemCoordinator_Brief_20121002" in the folder "Pack530 Access" on my Google drive (see attached below).  As the opening page says:

"Since the inception of the Religious Emblems Coordinator (REC) 
concept, it has been recognized that, like so many other Scouting 
functions, there needs to be a unit-level position to correspond to the 
council and district. The REC team is now complete with the addition of 
the Unit Religious Emblems Coordinator (UREC). The UREC is now 
recognized as a position on the unit committee. 

"The Unit Religious Emblems Coordinator position was created to strengthen units by building an infrastructure that would create cohesiveness between units and district- and council-level volunteers, ultimately to better serve youth members in the realm of Duty to God. 

"The responsibility of the coordinator is to educate, motivate, evaluate, 
and facilitate the religious emblems program at the unit level. In addition 
to serving on the unit committee, a key function of the position is to 
serve as the liaison to the District Religious Emblems Coordinator."

Some pictures of some of the emblems that can be earned are included with the .pdf file along with some frequently asked questions and other information.

If you are interested in either of these opportunities, see Cubmaster Scot Alexander, Cindy Akihiro (with regards to the Lions' Club) or me at our meeting tomorrow night or come to our next Committee Meeting Thursday November 8 at 7pm at the Castlio cafeteria.  You can also email me at chair.pack530@gmail.com.

Andy Basford
