September Pack Meeting Fri. 9/23

Hello Pack 310 Families,

We will be having our next pack meeting this Friday, Sept. 23rd, in the Lincoln Elementary Auditorium.  We have a fun-filled program in support of our "Clean" theme from the Scout Law and incorporating our National Parks.   

Where: Lincoln Elementary Auditorium
When: Friday, Sept. 23
Wear:  Cub Scout Uniform
Time:  7pm - 8pm  

Additionally, Rachelle, Den 3 Leader, will need help on Friday, Sept 23rd, after our pack meeting to help set up for the Lincoln Elementary Book Fair, being held Sept. 26-30.   This is one of our scouting "Adopt-A-School" community service activities.   We will need our scouts and parents to help put away tables and chairs and to clean up or take home items used during the meeting.  If they can help roll in the metal cases (scouts love this part) and put them in specific areas that would be about it.  If scouts would like, they can help put up decorations as well.

Recycled Raingutter Regatta POSTPONED due to wildfire smoke advisory!

Hello Pack 310 families,
Due to an air quality advisory from the wildfire in Santa Clarita, as well as the excessive heat, we are postponing the Recycled Raingutter Regatta to Saturday, August 6th from 10am-noon.

We apologize for the inconvenience and last-minute notice, but our first concern is keeping our scouts and their families safe and healthy. Children are advised to stay indoors to avoid breathing in the pollutants and ash from the fire. 

To read the current smoke advisory, here is the link: ftp://ftp.aqmd.gov/pub/globalist/Advisory.pdf
 
For more information on wildfire air quality and children, follow this link: http://www.aqmd.gov/docs/default-source/publications/fact-sheets/fire-safety-alert-for-children-english.pdf?sfvrsn=2

Please continue to collect your boat building materials and we will see you August 6th!
