Attention Pack Parents & Committee Members,

This coming Sunday April 10th at our Monthly Committee meeting we are going to be holding our Annual Pack Planning meeting.  This is where we plan out the pack events for the year.  We would love your input in making our schedule. Please plan on attending if possible.  I would love see some of you attend. Mainly we will be working on our Pack Calendar and setting Dates for the Pack events we decide on.  If you can't make this meeting and would still like to have some input you can email me ahead of time.  Please try to have any information to me by Saturday so I have time to review it.  

This is an important process because we need to have our dates and events set to work out the calendar so we can reserve spots and be ready for another successful year.  I foresee this meeting being about an hour but no longer than 1.5 hours. 

We will start at 4:30pm at the Firehouse at 16801 Northgate Drive, Parker 80134.
