community meal

The Cub Scouts of Pack 793 will be hosting the Our Lady of Guadalupe Community Meal on August 24th 1PM to 3:30 PM. We will be cooking and serving to about 100 people!

The community meal is a monthly ,free sit-down meal held at OLG in the Parish Life Center/Gymnasium. Everyone in the community is invited to attend. It is conducted ‘restaurant style’ where the guests are served at their tables. The goal is to provide a hot meal once a month for those in our community, in particular for those who may not regularly have a hot meal. Inviting the whole community provides a way for all of us to share a meal and conversation together. OLG receives additional volunteers from other West Seattle churches and service groups (youth and adult).

Please remember to wear your uniforms and bring your manners!

Live the Dream and Help Holy Rosary Church!

Published on May 22, 2014,

ParkingBe a Parking Attendant!

I’m sure many of you are like me and watch with intrigue the skillful ballet-like actions of parking attendants when driving down 1st Ave on game days. There is a mystic around these individuals that is so appealing. Well now you have a great opportunity to live the dream and try out those skills right here in West Seattle, this Sunday!

Holy Rosary Church is starting the new Mass schedule this weekend, going from 3 Sunday morning Masses down to 2. The Church is anticipating a higher turnout for the 2 Masses, and thus, a little parking crunch.

Patrick Baredo is looking for 5-10 volunteers (leaders or parents) who wouldn’t mind being here before the 2 Masses to help parishioners find parking spots.

There are two times that Patrick needs help: 8.15am-8.35am, and 10.15am-10.35am. It would also be good for the parking volunteers to not have to miss anytime at Mass, so you may want to attend one Mass, and then help with parking for the other Mass.

Not only do you get to wear a NEON VEST,

but you may also get to use a WALKIE TALKIE!

So please take a moment to reach out to Patrick Baredo (click his name to send an email) and let him know that you are ready to Live the Dream!

Webelo II crossover

Starting a New Pack 793 Tradition

The end of the school year marks a point where the Webelo II’s transition into a Boy Scout Troop and the rest of the Cub’s start planning for day camps, family vacations and other fun things. Our den meetings and pack meetings are put on hold for the summer, however we add in monthly activities like fishing, camping and other activities to keep us going.

This year we would like to get new recruits involved in all our summer activities rather than wait until the Fall. So we are starting a new tradition by having a new scout Welcome Night along with the Webelo II crossover. And we will do this with a fun-filled night at Camp Long on Friday June 6th from 6 PM to 7:30 PM.

We encourage all scouts to participate in their Class A uniforms. Some of the activities planned:

  • Flag Ceremony
  • Welcome of the new scouts
  • Demonstations and exhibits of what Pack 793 does
  • Big campfire
  • Skits
  • Sing-a-longs
  • S’mores
  • Webelo II Crossover
  • Closing Ceremony

So please hold the date for what will be the event of the year!
