All beltloops, pins and special badges that are earned by the scouts will be distributed by the Advancement Chair (Liz Hauser) to a den representative at the monthly pack leaders meetings. These meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month, usually at the Gardens Mall meeting room (downstairs near Sears, down the hall where the restrooms/post office are) from 6:30-8:00 pm. If a den representative does not attend the meeting, the awards will not be distributed for that den.
National Den Award:
All Den Leaders should consider working toward earning the National Den Award. Details can be found at: http://www.scouting.org/cubscouts/awards/adults/unitawards.aspx
Cub Scouts can earn their Whittling Chip beginning with their Bear year. The Whittling Chip allows the scout to carry a pocketknife to designated Cub Scout functions. To earn the chip, the scout learns how to use a pocketknife safely. Learning knife safety also counts toward Bear Achievement 19 which can be used for the Bear Rank. Additional info can be found in the Bear Handbook as well as at: http://www.boyscouttrail.com/content/award/award-434.asp
