    Pack Bike Ride! Saturday, August 13, 2022 9:00 AM

    Posted on Aug 8 2022 - 8:21am

    Final Summer Event! Come join Pack 125's first annual Good-bye Summer Pack Bike Ride!

    What could be a better farewell to summer than friends, on a trail, enjoying the fresh air? We'll probably even spot some wildlife!

  • Meet at 9:00am in the parking lot at Okeeheelee Park South (see attached pictures); parking lot on East side of the street 7715 Forest Hill Blvd, West Palm Beach, FL 33413
  • We will have a short bike safety talk and then we will ride! The trail is 3.1 miles, but there is an option to turn back about halfway if you need to! Several families with small children (pre-K aged!) have biked this trail before and report that it is easy and appropriate for all ages!
    Bikes, scooters, wagons - all are welcome, but the trail is a shell/ rock trail so keep that in mind when choosing your mode of transportation.

    Class B. Remember water (we will have water bottles for those who need it), sun protection, and bike helmets!

    See you 9am on Saturday August 13th!
    Please register/RSVP by clicking the link to right so we don't leave anyone behind! You can also remove your name if you are unable to make it.

    School Night for Scouting Recruiting Events

    Posted on Aug 8 2022 - 8:07am

    We have been approved for Binks classrooms recruitment rallies on Wednesday Aug 24, 2022 ⋅ 8:30am – 9:30am.
    We need several uniformed leaders or excited parents in a Pack 125 t-shirt to do the classroom rallies - it is an easy 2 minute scripted speech! We like to send 2 adults into each room and we leave flyers with the teacher. EASY! Please sign up on the website or reach out to Tonya with questions!

    School Night for Scouting on Thursday, Aug 25, 6:30pm - 8:00pm.
    I need all hands on deck for this event! *All* leaders need to be there to talk to potential recruits and welcome newly joined members. We also need leaders to run the stations - more info on this soon! If a few adults are interested in helping with Spanish speaking families, that would be great! We will also need adults to run youth activities while parents go through the stations and ask questions.

  • Have ideas for youth activities? Let me know!
  • We asked Council to let us handle recruiting our way after last year's SNFS and they said yes, so let's do this! They will not be sending a representative to either event so we need to get LOTS of volunteers lined up to make it a successful recruiting season!

    Summer Service Project: Book Donation Turn-In - July 26th, 6pm-7pm

    Posted on Jul 24 2022 - 10:46pm

    Did you collect books for our summer service project?
    Ms. Kim is holding a drop-off event at Okeeheelee Park this Tuesday, July 26th from 6:00 to 7:00 at Alligator Pavilion (the first pavilion on the right after you enter the park). Stop by with your donations and be sure to let her know how many service hours you worked! If you need to make other arrangements, reach out to Kim Webb at 352-870-8696 or kwebb529@gmail.com.

    Who doesn't have books laying around their house the kids have outgrown or don't want anymore? This summer, Pack 125 is collecting books ranging from infant to adult (including your old pregnancy books!), in any language!
    We are going to fill the free little libraries around town and donate to schools/ foster homes, etc in need. Reach out to neighbors, family, school friends, and post on your community board!

    Attached is a flyer for you to customize - add your own contact information and and donation due date (everything in RED is customizable).

  • Test a page first before you make many copies. For myself, the google slide prints best when you select "fit to printable area".
  • Once your scout collects the books, contact Kim Webb 352-870-8696 or kwebb529@gmail.com and I will come pick them up from you! You will hear from either myself or your den leader in August about book distribution.

    All books are due by Friday July 29th!
