DETAILS:

There will be no fee for our registered Pack 32 Cub Scouts (thank you fundraising!). The pack will be covering the cost for each scout, including: entrance fee, roller skate rental, pizza, drinks, and desert.


Being that scouts must have a parent attend with them, the pack will cover the entrance fee for (1) parent per scout, and provide the parent with pizza and drinks. **If the parent would like to roller skate, they will need to pay the $5 fee for their own skate rental that day**


If families wish to bring more than one parent and/or siblings, they are responsible for paying their own entrance fee ($8), skate rental fees ($5), and purchasing their own food from the roller rink's food counter. (**Note that the rink does have capacity limits, and entrance is first come, first served in regard to extra parents/siblings)


GIFT EXCHANGE:

Each scout should bring with them a wrapped gift (suggest value of $10). The scouts will be playing a gift-exchange game during the party. Siblings are welcome to also bring a gift participate in the gift exchange. Gifts that are themed to scout-like activities are appreciated. Pocket knives can NOT be given as gifts.

Pack 32 will be participating in Verona's 2021 Fair in the Square, on Saturday, December 4 from 12 pm to 5 pm with scouts running our table there. This year, we'll have hot cocoa and cupcakes and conducting a vote to determine Verona's most popular combination of cupcake and frosting... the cupcakes that sell out fastest will be declared "Verona's Favorite Cupcake."


We will need folks to bake cupcakes. (We'll be selling chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting and with chocolate frosting and vanilla cupcakes with both frostings). We'll also need scouts to work the table (in one-hour shifts) along with their adult... This is something scouts have really enjoyed doing in the past! We think Scout participation is important both to promote civic involvement among our scouts and because it's fun!

We have a Pack 32 hike planned for Sunday, November 21st at 1:30 PM in the South Mountain reservation.


We will be meeting in the municipal parking lot right next door to the Millburn library (200 Glen Ave, Millburn, NJ 07041). We are planning to hike a short-portion of the Lenape trail, including stopping at the Washington Rock scenic overlook (Fun fact = From this overlook, George Washington observed the American troops defeat the British at the battles of Springfield and Connecticut Farms). If there is time after the hike, we may visit the Fairy Trail as well.


Please click here for a map of where we plan to hike. We’re looking forward to a great event!
