The tigers and bears packs went on a hiking trip yesterday at Dwight D Eisenhower park. Tigers are knocking out the “Tigers in the Wild” requirement with this hike. We were able to hike the nature trail, observe plants and animals in their own natural and wild habitat.
At our last meeting we decided to us the groupme app for future communications. We also decided to meet at the fire station at 911 Hollywood St. On Monday, January 18, 2016 for our meeting. This is an adventure that works toward advancement in rank for all levels. On January 30th the pack will meet at the North Shore Senior High parking lot to distribute Food For The Hungry Doorhangers (flyers). The following Saturday February 6th we will meet at 10:00 collect the food donated by the neighborhood. If you have any questions please call anytime.
