WHEN: August 30, 2015 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm (Set-up 10AM – 1 PM)
WHERE: Our Lady of Guadalupe Church
7000 35th Avenue Southwest, Seattle, WA 98126
The Cub Scouts of Pack 793 will be hosting the Our Lady of Guadalupe Community Meal on August 30th 1PM to 3:30 PM. We will be cooking and serving to about 100 people! Please come early to set-up at 10 AM and help clean-up afterwards. Even if you are only able to come for a few hours, please join anytime!
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!
The West Seattle Parade is coming up on July 18th. We usually meet on California near the Safeway, but we will let you know once we have confirmation. We have invited all other scouts in the area to join us so this might be a big event.
Traditionally the scouts walk from the start to the end. Siblings are encouraged to attend. Parents or guardians are a must to be with the scouts to get keep them aligned, watered down and most importantly to pick them up at the end. It is challenging to shuttle the scouts back to the start due to the crowds, so it is best to carpool with other families and leave a car at the end.
The scouts are encouraged to bring bikes, scooters, cub mobiles or other items like that as long as they bring protective gear. We will need the scouts to pass out candy along the way. Additionally we will have two rocket launchers in the parade this year so we will need dedicated scouts to help pump, pass out eye protection, load the launchers and assist the kids from the crowd.
…and we have something new this year!
Cub Scout Recycled Bucket Drum Corps!
This group will be for any age scout. The scouts will meet with scout leaders 3-4 times prior to the parade for practice. One of the leaders is an actual drum instructor! Location details and times are TBD. The scout would carry a bucket (think Home Depot) and play some basic beats on the bottom. Drums, sticks and instruction are provided. Scouts just need to bring a great attitude!
No Experience Necessary!
If interested in the drum corps, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
