Pack Meeting Tonight!
Wednesday October 21st 2015 at Holy Rosary
Bring your knives, scrapers, lights, and anything else you need to make the BEST carved pumpkin. We’ll bring the pumpkins and you bring the tools and the creativity!
Family and Siblings are welcome and extremely encouraged!
SITE SALES HAVE BEEN POSTED!
We have a handful of Site Sales posted coming up for selling popcorn at the QFC at 42nd. This is a great location because it is indoor and both of the main entrances to the store go right past where the scouts set-up!
Please sign up soon and pick a spot. If we end up with free spots we will open them up to other Cub Scout Packs. If we need more, I’ll fight for more.
Popcorn Tip from Oliver!
Oliver and his mom were picking up popcorn from the popcorn kernel in a garage on an alley. He had just been practicing his popcorn selling skills when a car came down the alley and was trying to go past his mom’s parked car. Oliver spoke with the driver and told him he was selling popcorn for Cub Scouts and the driver bought a Sweet and Savory! Oliver got 10% of his quota by just asking for the sale!
Remember that people want to help Cub Scouts. Ask potential customers if they want to help Cub Scouts before asking if they want to buy popcorn.
Great Job Oliver!!
The First two Popcorn Pick-up times are this weekend. The location is the garage on the backside of the popcorn kernel home at 4010 42nd Ave SW. It is best to go south on the alley between 41st and 42nd from Andover. This would minimize congestion due to Westfest.
- Saturday 9/19 2 PM – 4 PM
- Sunday 9/20 11 AM – 1 PM
We also have limited quantities of “Ask Me about Cub Scout Popcorn” buttons available. This is a great way to generate additional interest while at Westfest!

Springbrook Trout Farm
Springbrook Trout Farm has been around since the 1940’s. In 1943, it was a lumber mill. One of the houses here was built with the lumber from that mill. Next, it began raising fish for the workers on the railroad. Eventually, that practice led to its current operation; a U-fish trout farm. We raise and buy rainbow trout to stock our three U-fish ponds for people of all ages to fish from.
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!
