    Renewal of BSA Membership is DUE NOW!

    Posted on Nov 26 2022 - 6:17pm

    It is time to renew your membership with Scouts BSA/Boy Scouts of America! EVERYONE pays this every year - the Pack does not keep ANY of this money. You must pay the "recharter" fee to remain active in Scouts, otherwise you will be dropped from our roster on January 1st.

    This fee is due DECEMBER 15TH!!

    The Good News: The payment is for ONE YEAR of membership so you will be covered through December 2023!

    For the scouts that registered and paid for Scout Island, we credited them with those payments toward their recharter fee.
    Any partial amounts can be paid with a check at your next DEN meeting or a direct PayPal payment to treasurer@pack125.com.
    ***Make sure to put "recharter" and the Scout's name in the notes.*** That is important!!
    If you owe the full amount, you can use the payment buttons on the website.

    Your leader should have reached out with what everyone owes for recharter - if they did not, please reach out to one of these people to get that information:
    Erick - ewilcox@ctcmortgage.com
    Emily - ejabbadessa@gmail.com
    Tonya - tonyamorgan09@gmail.com

    To reiterate: if this is not paid, your Scout will be dropped from the roster on January 1st. If you need assistance with payment, please do not hesitate to reach out to one of the people listed above.

    SeaWorld Overnight Adventure - only a few spots left!

    Posted on Nov 26 2022 - 6:09pm

    As of right now, we have filled 166 of our 175 guaranteed spots for the January 14th Overnight Adventure at SeaWorld!
    We are trying to get an additional sleeping location to add extra spots, but it is not a guarantee at this point - we are waiting on a response from SeaWorld.

    The LAST DAY to sign up/pay is DECEMBER 7TH. No one will be added after that date.

    *Please be aware that Scouts with a free ticket from popcorn sales are not guaranteed a spot until the accompanying parent is paid for! There are 8 free Scouts NOT signed up to attend.

    Please go to ONLINE PAYMENTS now to reserve your place: https://www.pack125.com/paypal/pay

    Shoot-o-Ree - Dec 3rd, Tanah Keeta

    Posted on Nov 26 2022 - 5:34pm

    Below is the schedule for the Shoot-o-Ree at Tanah Keeta. Go here for additional info: https://www.gulfstreamcouncil.org/eg-shootoree

    Class B Pack 125 t-shirts are good for this event. Bring a water bottle and sun protection! Bug spray is also probably a good idea.

    Your Scout will learn the history and safety rules for all 3 Cub Scout Shoot Sports, then get to shoot all three! He or she will earn the shooting sports patch for their rank and all 3 pins that go on it!

    DO NOT BE LATE! Arrive early to check in. You will be given a sheet to carry to each shooting station to be signed off on by the instructor. You will turn this in at the end of the event, but I strongly recommend you take a picture of the completed paperwork prior to turning it in just so we are sure you get the proper credit!

    If your Scout cannot attend, please let Tonya know as there is long waiting list for this sold-out event! Below is the schedule.

    Autofest Family Fun Event - Dec 4th, 9:30-1:00

    Posted on Nov 20 2022 - 5:40pm

    The Rotary Club of Wellington has invited us to attend their Autofest event on Dec 4th, starting at 9:30 ! Wear your Pack 125 shirts to show your support for both of these great organizations! Have ideas about how to add kid-zone fun to the next Rotary event? Share your thoughts with Erick or Tonya - the Rotary Club wants our ideas and our family involvement!

    Please register if you plan to attend - we'll give community service hours just for coming and hanging out! We are entering a partnership with the Wellington Rotary Club and we want to make an impact.

    This is the information sent by the Rotary Club:
    The AutoFest is a car show with a variety of vehicles ( http://www.familyautofest.com or https://www.facebook.com/Familyautofest ) but it's also a family event with activities, food trucks and music. It takes place once a month at Village Park off Pierson on Sunday mornings with the next one on December 4th.

    Hosted by the Rotary Club of Wellington, our event is a fundraiser focusing on local charities hosted. Starting with veteran causes, we are rotating charities every 3 months. Our current plan is to cover foster families, under-served local families and other similar causes throughout the year.

    Scout participation would be welcome and appreciated! We hope to come up with a plan that fits your goals and helps promote the Scout program.

    Thank You Service Project Volunteers!

    A big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this weekend's Service Events!

    Scouting for Food -
    We collected 240 pounds of food! WOW!
    Thank you to Ms. Kim and Mr. Randy for organizing the door hanger drop off and food pick up. Thanks to our volunteer truck-owners for stepping up to collect the goods: Mr. Patrick, Anthony Fontanazza, and Matt Aldrich.
    Thank you to AOLs Kyle and Finn for handling the organizing and turn-in of the donations for both the Pack and the Troop.
    And thank you to all the Scouts and Families that pounded the pavement and visiting each and every door!

    Binks Carnival Clean Up -
    An annual event we almost missed because of the campout, but I had 2 amazing Scout moms step to handle it! Thank you to Carla Manzano and Julie Brewster for gathering supplies and keeping in contact with Binks to get it done!

    Lunch for Troop 125 -
    For those that don't know, we donated out canceled campout lunch to Troop 125 on Saturday during their Tree Stand Build (they sell Christmas trees starting Nov 26th!). They were very appreciative and the food didn't get wasted - Win-Win!
    Thank you to Ted Arnstein for the pasta salad and the AOLs Kyle and Finn for setting up and cleaning up the buffet!

    I am so proud of how this Pack dove into service this weekend!
