Upcoming Events

2022 Popcorn Fundraiser 


 The 2022 Popcorn Fundraiser is now underway. There are three different ways to help your scout get the most out of this years fundraiser. See the three different options below. Also, check out the new tab labeled popcorn fundraiser for more tips and tricks!


Take-Order Form

Everyone should be familiar with the take-order form as this is the most common way to complete orders. You should have received the take-order form already. If you have not, you can print one out using the link below.

Online Sales

Another way of selling popcorn is a using the online option. With the online option you can send out a link to your scouts online sales market. This allows you to reach out to friends and family who may live out of state. There is also a larger selection goods for them to purchase in the online store. Another great thing is that you do not have to deal with money or meeting up with them to give the popcorn. They would pay online using a credit/debit card and the popcorn will be delivered directly to their home.


Show-N-Sell

The final option for selling popcorn is the Show-N-Sell option. This option requires that the scouts get out in front of people use communication skills to sell popcorn in front of store fronts. We have some pre-ordered popcorn that you would use to sell. Below is a sign up genius with locations and times of when you can sign up to sell popcorn. If you are interested in doing a Show-N-Sell please reach out to Justin Anderson at anderson.justin38@gmail.com

Scouting Through the Summer

Although the scout year may be coming to a close, there are still many ways that you can continue the scouting spirit through the summer until we meet again at the start of the next school year. Please see the list below for ideas. Also, check back through the summer to see any updates to this list. 

  1. Cub Scout Day Camp ( see above for more information)
  2. Cub Scout Nova Award
  3. Cub Scout Religious Emblem Award
  4. Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award
  5. Electives (belt loops) for your next rank


For more information on any of these items, please reach out to the pack leadership.


Notable awards that each scout can earn

Recruitment Award:

Any current scout who gets a friend to join is eligible for a “Recruiter” strip patch that can be worn on the uniform. Let the Cubmaster know who you got to join the pack.

Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award:

Please let Advancement Chair Justin Anderson know if your scout attended Fayette Day Camp this past June or attended an overnight Scout Camp this summer. If so, they are eligible for this awesome award. If they received it last year, let him know that too, they get a cool paw print pin that goes on the patch for a subsequent award. There are other criteria for the award but if you were active with the pack and your den last year, and attended the other outings, you would have completed all the requirements. See Justin Anderson for details.


Note about Uniforms:

A couple of changes regarding the uniform for this year:

1) Hats - We are no longer providing a Pack Hat. We are not requiring you to purchase or wear a hat with your uniform. But, if you are wearing a hat with your Class A uniform, it needs to be the appropriate rank-specific hat or if you have the old pack hat, you can wear that.

2) Neckerchief Woggles – in previous years, we provided a hand-tied woggle. We will not be doing that this year. You can purchase a rank-specific woggle at the scout shop or I will offer a free woggle kit for you to tie one yourself. We do have a limited amount of free older donated woggles available. See Justin Anderson for details. Neckerchief slides are available for purchase at the scout shop.

3) Pack Uniform Requirement – The Class A uniform consists of the blue button-up shirt (Webelos can wear the BSA tan…) with appropriate patches, rank-specific neckerchief, neckerchief slide/woggle, & scout belt. These are available from the Scout Shop in Griffin or online. You do not need to wear the official scout pants or shorts. They are a bit pricey and it is not necessary. A pair of blue jeans are just fine. Pants/shorts with belt loops are required, however. Again, a hat is optional. Class A uniform is required at all pack/den meetings unless otherwise noted by the den leader or Cubmaster. Class B uniform is the pack T-shirt. I’d like to see every scout in uniform as soon as possible. Again, you can offset or completely pay for your uniform via popcorn sales. If you have any questions, let me know.



Covid – We follow current guidelines from the BSA, CDC, State of Georgia, and the Fayette County School Board regarding school closures & Covid directives. If FCBOE decides to cancel school for Covid or any other reasons – ice storms, bad weather, etc., - we will cancel meetings on those affected dates as well. We also follow the rules and guidance from our charter – Brooks United Methodist Church – on whether we are able to meet inside their building and/or their masking rules. But please, if you are ill or showing symptoms of any illness, please stay home and we will make sure your scout is caught up. The majority of requirements can be completed at home when needed.
