The Pack will hold its first den meetings on Friday, Oct. 2, at 7:00 p.m. New Cubs or those interested in joining should arrive at 6:30 p.m., so paperwork, etc. can be filled out before the meeting starts.

In addition to regular Cub Scout membership, the Pack is part of the BSA Garden State Council pilot program, which includes a Lion Cub program for boys in kindergarten.
