Dollinger's Pumpkin Farm - Sunday, Sept 29th, 1pm, meet at the bridge in the play area across from the parking lot.  As a group, we are eligible for a discount for hay rides (with discount, $5/person) and corn maze (with discount, $2/person).  This is a family fun event, where very little structured activities are planned.  It is a chance to get know other families in the pack.   If you have a Pack t-shirt (Class B Uniform), feel free to wear it, otherwise, dress for the weather. Free event, some features & all concessions not included.
October Pack Meeting - Friday, October 4th 6:30pm Walnut Trails.  We are anticipating a visit from the local food pantry to talk about an upcoming service project, we will have the scouts work with the flags so they understand flag ceremonies and proper handling, and a ceremony to recognize the achievements our scouts have earned over the summer.  Pack meetings usually last about an hour-and-a-half.
Colorwalk - Saturday, October 5th 9:30am - Gebhard Woods, Morris Illinois.  Another Family Fun event.  A short hike followed by some activities for the scouts.  Dress for the weather, bring a water bottle and your scout book.  Free event, concessions not included.  All scouts who attend & participate will complete a majority of requirements for the hiking belt loop.
