Welcome to the Pack 264 Page!
It's been a great year so far! The families of Pack 264 are having a great 97-98 season! In January we rechartered 51 boys and 16 adults. Our Blue and Gold Banquet was great (February 21st), and pictures will hopefully be available here soon. Please send me an e-mail and let me know you dropped by! The Weblady - Genny White click here to send e-mail!
Here's what's coming up in Pack 264:
MARCH 14 EARLY DAY CAMP REGISTRATION ($40) turned in by Pack Day Camp Coordinator (Deanne Glasser). Forms and payments should be in to Deanne by March 10. For more info about CUB DAY CAMP 1998, click HERE ! To take a look at CUB DAY CAMP 1997, click HERE !
MARCH 17 Scout Show Kickoff at Pittman Creek Church of Christ, 7:30 p.m.- our Pack's representative will get tickets to sell and an important info packet. All scouts will be asked to sell the $2 coupon books that are also tickets to the Scout Show, which will be May 2nd at Texas Stadium. People who are NOT interested in going to the show still get much more than their money's worth in free stuff and discounts from the coupons, and the PACK KEEPS A LARGE PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS - this is a fund-raising event for your Pack, as well as for scouting in general. The more response we have in Scout Show Ticket sales, the better activities we can provide for our scouts this summer, and throughout the year! Scouts, please try to attend the Scout Show with your families - it's really a fun and fascinating adventure for folks of all ages. Cub Packs set up games and exhibits like a "Scouting Carnival", and Boy Scout Troops show off their skills, like rope bridges, first aid demonstrations, outdoor cooking and camping skills. There's a day's worth of things to see and do, and it's well worth the trip. Click HERE to see pictures from '97!
MARCH 24 MARCH PACK MEETING at Carpenter Middle School, 7:00 p.m. Come hear about plans for the April events, get Scout Show tickets, pick up your Raingutter Regatta kit, and say farewell to our 5th grade Webelos as they graduate!
APRIL 4 GLAD BAG-A-THON at Big Lake Park, just south of Christie. All scouts and family members of Pack 264 who can help clean up our adopted park should meet at 9 a.m. to join the team. Sign up at the Pack Meeting! All participants get a free hat, and trash bags are provided, so just bring your Scout Spirit! Everyone is invited to the City-wide Appreciation Picnic at Memorial Park (across from Schimelpfenig Library) from noon-2:00. There will be free food, prizes, and entertainment! (Picture below!)
APRIL 4 Scouts in uniform with special ticket get free admission to TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY, 1:00 p.m.
APRIL 4 WEBELOS CROSSOVER at Breckenridge Park South in Richardson. Webelos Scouts who have signed up with a Boy Scout Troop need to bring their copy of their registration form to show that their paperwork is complete, and notify their Troop that they will be present. Registration begins at 4:30 p.m., crossover starts at 5:30. The Order of the Arrow has prepared a very special ceremony to welcome new Boy Scouts. Registration is $.50 at the door, or $1.50 if you have not filled out your paperwork and have to complete it there. ($1 pays for transferring your membership from Pack to Troop.) Family members attend, of course!
APRIL 14 Cub Leaders Roundtable for all Pack Leaders, 7:30 p.m., Custer Road United Methodist Church.
APRIL 18 PACK MEETING AT LAKE LAVON! Our April Pack Event will be held at Lake Lavon, where we will have a Pack Meeting, Family Cookout, BB and Archery ranges, and the Raingutter Regatta! After dinner, families who wish to camp out may do so. (The Scout event ends with the closing campfire - families are on their own while camping overnight.) The Pack will provide food and supplies for the cookout, equipment for the activities, and guidance for those who are new to camping and want to stay overnight. More details at the Pack Meeting - don't miss it!
APRIL 18 SECOND DAY CAMP REGISTRATION ($50) turned in by Pack Day Camp Coordinator (Deanne Glasser). Forms and payments should be in to Deanne by April 14.
APRIL 25 PTO CARNIVAL AT CHRISTIE, 10:00-2:00, where our Pack is sponsoring a Pinewood Derby booth! We need volunteers to help run the booth, and CARS made by volunteers to use on the track! We don't want our scouts' prize-winning cars to be damaged by rough handling, so we need basic, sturdy cars built just for this purpose, so the kids at Christie can experience Derby Racing. Please sign up to help (at the Pack Meeting), and pick up a kit to build for the Carnival. This may become an annual event for us!
APRIL 25 Heritage Farmstead Scout Day invites scouts of all ages to come tour the farm, participate in various crafts and activities, and see exhibits of how things were in the "good 'ol days" (late 1800's). Groups sign up for a specific time slot (9:30-11:30, 11:30-1:30, or 1:30-3:30), so you could check out the Christie carnival and participate in Scout Day at the Farmstead, if you schedule your day carefully. Scouts pay $5 (if registered before April 8), and two adults attend free with each group. Flyers with more information will be available to Den Leaders at the Pack Meeting.
MAY 2 SCOUT SHOW - OUTDOOR EXPOSITION - all-day excitement with a scouting theme at Texas Stadium! (All proceeds from ticket sales and leftover unsold tickets must be turned in on this date by our Pack's Scout Show Chairman.)

Cub Scouts Help Other People!
There were 32 members of Pack 264 on the job on April 5th, 1997, when we participated in the city-wide Glad Bag-a-Thon. We collected 13 bags of trash from our "adopted" park, Big Lake Park just south of Christie. We planted some flowers under our sign, so people enjoying the park know we're taking good care of it. Thanks to all who came to help!
