New Parents

From the entire Pack, we would like to welcome new parents to the Cub Scout Pack 227 family.

Below is our current calendar.  Please have a look and mark your calendars or better yet, post it on your refrigerator.

2018-2019 Calendar (Updated September 9th, 2018)

This is a briefing that explains how our pack functions

Cub Scout Pack 227 Parent info Presentation-1-1

Some more info and useful Links:

Our Pack Website:    (  you are already here 😉  )
www.pack227.org

The pack calendar and other info is on this site.  It is mostly used for the calendar but there is other info about Uniforms and Medical Forms so poke around.  We try to do info blasts under the calendar from time to time.  Make sure to check “detail” of event because sometimes we add extra info about events.  If you use a smart phone, you can import this Pack Google Calendar into your android calendar, maybe even iPhone.  Please inform your family and friends from the pack about this site and its offerings.

The Medical Forms are linked on this Pack Website and at Scouting.org.  The new bilingual forms are what we now use.  They are fill-able PDF’s and you should be able to save them for future years and update the date.  We fill out Part A and B.  Don’t forget to have the scout and parent sign it.  If a Den Leader, please keep 1 copy for yourself and give a copy to the Pack Secretary.  Medical Forms and Pack Dues are to be turned in at the September Pack meeting.  It is best for den leaders to collect dues and forms all at once and then turn them in.  Click here to download the medical form.
