Parvuli Dei classes starting up!

Published on November 28, 2015,

ParVuliDei2Part of the Cub Scout journey is duty to god.  Each rank has a section that requires duty to god and one way to do this is to earn the religious medal for your faith. The Catholic medal is called Parvuli Dei and it is a great way to learn about how scouting fits into your Catholic faith.
Patrick Barredo from the Holy Rosary Parish office is offering a class On Mondays from 3:00~3:45 every week for 5-6 weeks – starting Dec 7th.  This class is open to Catholic pack members who are a Bear, Webelos or Arrow of Life scout.  Patrick can accommodate 10 scouts in the class.  The scouts will be presented their medal in Mass on Scout Sunday by Father Oakland.
Please sign up as the class is limited to 10 boys.

Popcorn Prizes!

Published on October 29, 2015,

Your Scouts Prize Selection is Due November 2nd!

Popcorn Sales are over and the totals are in! Everyone did an AMAZING job this year!

Now the next steps are to pick your prize based on your total sales and let me know by November 2nd. If you lost your Prize sheet, you can find it HERE online.

Find your scouts total below. Your scout can pick one or more prizes that total up to your total below.

So as an example, Finnegan was a BIG seller with $1010. He can pick one of the prizes in Level 7 ($1000), or he may pick prizes from other levels that add up to his total. As an example, he could instead pick one item from Prize level 5 ($650) and one item from Prize level 3 ($350) for a total of $1000 in prizes.

Those scouts that sold over $600 will automatically receive a remote control car!

and EVERYONE that sold popcorn will be invited to a Pizza party in December (TBD) for the prize hand-out.

Thank you!

Brian Christenson (brian@the-christensons.com)

(Please check your totals below and let me know if you see any discrepancies!)
