Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast - 2019

posted Jul 6, 2019, 6:55 AM by Webmaster Pack30

Once a year, we have an opportunity to assist our chartered organization, the 
Waukesha Noon Kiwanis, in their annual fundraiser. The Kiwanis hold a pancake breakfast at the Waukesha County Fair to help fund youth organizations in the city of Waukesha.

Those that are interested may sign up here:
Please register before July 10th, as we need an accurate count of volunteers.

Volunteers are requested to perform an 1 hour shift, and scouts and adults will assist with carrying plates/drinks to tables, clearing tables, filling syrup containers, filling coffee, or offering more pancakes to those that are seated. 
Participants will also receive tickets to park and enter the fair, so you may enjoy the fair after your shift is complete.

Each year, our scouts do a great job, and enjoy helping out. It is also an event that the Kiwanis really appreciate the help at.

If you have questions or comments, please contact Jennifer Nienhaus or Eric Johnson.

Wear your uniform.

CANCELED: Miller Park Scout Day

posted Jul 6, 2019, 6:54 AM by Webmaster Pack30

Unfortunately, due to some unforseen circumstances, the scout day at Miller Park has been canceled for Pack 30 participants. Due to a lack of communication with the council planning committee, we were not able to secure the tickets necessary to participate. If you signed up and wanted to attend, we are very sorry. 

Pack 30 Camp-out - 2019

posted Jul 6, 2019, 6:48 AM by Webmaster Pack30

June 8-9th Pack 30 Family Camp 

We will have further details soon but wanted to remind anyone who did not sign up at the last pack meeting to let Eric Johnson know how many will be attending so we can get a total count for food. We will have games, a hike, work on cooking skills, and much more! Also to note for those scouts who need to camp overnight as a requirement, this would be a great time to get that requirement.

This year we are going to Mukwonago Cty. Park

We will be in Group Site 6.

As always, if you don't want to camp both nights, please let one of the leaders know. We need to rent the facility for the entire weekend, so if you enjoy camping and want to stay for both nights, please do so.

We are looking forward to a low-key camping experience where our scouts can have fun and the parents can get to know each other a little better.

We look forward to seeing everyone there.

Our April Pack meeting looks to be a lot of fun with 1st Aid and Weather Safety, Fire Safety, Tent Setup, and Skits/Songs.

We'll spend the first part of the meeting rotating to each of the stations, where some of our parents and adult leaders will go over the fun and safe way to camp. Then our dens will break out to practice their skits/songs and perform them at the end of the meeting. We're looking forward to seeing all of your there!

We will meet at the Randall School Gym on Wednesday, 4/10 at 6:15pm.

Farwell to our Webelos Arrow of Light Scouts

posted Mar 14, 2019, 12:09 PM by Webmaster Pack30   [ updated Mar 14, 2019, 12:09 PM ]

Wednesday, March 13th, 2019, we had 11 scouts earn their Arrow of Light awards, and all of them have selected a local troop to continue their scouting careers. It has been great having them as part of our Pack, and it was wonderful to watch them grow over these last six years. It is great that you have found a Troop that you enjoy, and we want to congratulate you on the hard work and dedication it took to earn your Arrow of Light awards. You met the challenge put forth when you first joined Cub Scouts, and we all look forward to you taking that next step into Scouts BSA, and hopefully meeting the challenge of earning your Eagle Scout award. Troops 159G, 13 and 4 have some great scouts entering their ranks.

Also, a big thank you to Mr. Kohlmann and Mrs. Wagner, who have been their Den Leaders from the beginning in Seeker year, and also, Mr. Windish, who became Den leader when the Den was so large we needed to split into two, and Mrs. Werner who became returned as a Webelos AoL Den Leader for the girl Den we added this year. You each have been an instrumental part of this pack, this den, and the lives of your scouts. We wish you the very best as you relax the reins of running meetings and can now watch as your scouts grow to responsible young adults.
