Cub Scout T-shirts / and yearly calendar.

Hi everyone,

In addition to the formal blue Cub Scout shirts, we also have t-shirts with a Pack design.  The Pack has a "Square account" to allow for electronic payments.  I have the cub Scout t-shirt order form ready on the Pack's Square site.  The t-shirts are sometimes referred to as Class B uniforms.

You can view the new t-shirts at: to see what the shirts look like.

There are two styles that we can buy, the first is a short sleeve at $15.00. If you only buy one I would suggest this style.

We also have a long sleeve option at $15.00 as well. The one displayed is NOT the color we are going to use.  It is just to show you the style.

Both the long sleeve and the short will be the same color base, royal blue.

There is a link in this post to our square store so that you the parents, can go in and select the size shirt you want for your family(s). Remember the grandparents may want one too.

The link is here to buy now:

In the square link you will also see the annual scout dues, so that our returning scout families can pay the annual scout fee on-line as well. If you are NOT a new scout to pack 93 this year, then the annual dues can be paid through this link as well.

I also posted a tentative calendar for the year so that all the parents can see what we are planning at this time. The new calendar can be seen on the blog at the calendar page.  The calendar is subject to change so please check back from time to time.  We will also post calendar updates to the blog as needed.

Election Day Fundraising Tues Nov 8th - Help needed.

Hi Everyone,

We have the opportunity to raise some much needed funds for our pack, but we need your help!

In order to subsidize and bring your families fun events, we need to raise cash. One event we are planning this year is an aquarium overnight stay, but it's pricey. We also need to replace some camping equipment.

Our target $1500 and we have 2 fundraisers planned. 1st. "Team up for Democracy", working the polling station, (parents only); 2nd. Boys bundling and selling mistletoe for the holidays.

Monterey County Elections Dept. has an opening to run a polling station at the Kinship Center off River Rd. This will bring in a whopping $800 for just one day's work. Paul, Al and myself are all going to work the event,  but we need a total of 13 workers.  We need additional 2 volunteers from the Al's Den, 5 from Paul's Den and 2 from my Den. Steve Tackett has generously offered to be the extra person.

Poll shifts are: 6am-10am; 10am-2pm; 2pm-6pm; 6pm-9:30pm

All workers have to take a 2 hr training, which has many flexible times and locations. Please let me know via text by this week if you can sign up. 

It should be a fun and interesting experience and is a wonderful way to serve your community and raise funds for our pack at the same time!

Al Scott and myself are visiting the classrooms at Toro this Wednesday Sept 8th. talking about cubs scouting. Please have your boys in their cubs scout uniforms. It's a great opportunity for your little ambassadors to help show off their uniforms and share their experiences with others.

Thanks, Lucy.
