WSBT Scout Day

photo (34)WSBT Scout Day on March 15th was a day full of exciting discoveries for local Scouts.  Our Scouts were able to tour the inside of the local WSBT  station, meet TV and radio anchors, and learn how the station produces and broadcasts shows .  The highlight was the opportunity for the Scouts to be filmed on the “green screen”.  Scouts were awarded a patch and received several other souvenirs including an autographed photo of the lead anchors of the TV station!  Special thanks to Brian Archambeault for taking the Pack 10 Scouts on this fantastic journey!

Notre Dame Planetarium Visit

On January 30th, Pack 10 took a trip that was out of this world!   They took a visit to The University of Notre Dame’s Planetarium in the Jordan Hall of Science where they were given plenty of information on astronomy.  Pack 10 was joined by the Girl Scouts as well as the St. Pius X Homeschool group.  Dr. Keith Davis arranged a wonderful tour of the sky for everyone!


Re-charter Application Approved with a Gold Honor

Our  re-charter application was due in November, and with a new Pack Committee, meant a lot of work was needed to be done. The Boy Scouts of America’s council performance recognition program, called Journey to Excellence, is designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance or our units, districts, and councils. It is meant to encourage a quality program at all levels of Boy Scouts.   With the help of the Pack Committee members and other engaged parent volunteers, we have received GOLD this academic year.  What a wonderful honor for Pack 10! A very big thank you to Michelle Clairmont for dedicating an enormous amount of time to help complete this time-consuming process.  Great job everyone!!
