Volunteer, Helping the Pack, Help Wanted

Currently Pack 3894 is looking to grow in its strength of the committee, we have adopted a “2 Deep” per Den Committee Involvement Policy to ensure some type of balance among the representation of parents in the pack from all dens. We do encourage as many to step up to help our den leaders with simple task sometimes, or the planning of an event , etc.  Some roles may require more talents, and more time but together with more involved parents we all can make a difference in not only your son’s experience but others.
