2021 Pinewood Derby!

posted Apr 19, 2021, 2:05 PM by Pack 33 Admin

On April 10, 2021 Pack 33 had their annual Pinewood Derby event. The volunteers did a great job making the PWD happen safely amid our COVID guidelines - our awesome leaders were able to work with with the church to LIVE STREAM the races from the basement to the folks upstairs so they didn't have to miss a minute!
Thank you to all the other volunteers who helped make this a fun day - everyone who decorated, helped set up and test the track and run the races.  We could not have these great events without the help of all our volunteers. We hope you enjoyed the races and the results and voting will be revealed at the May Pack meeting!
  
    
 



December Pack Meeting: Building Ice Ladders

PACK 33 BUILDS ICE LADDERS FOR WESTBOROUGH
For the December pack meeting, the Cub Scouts in attendance learned quite a bit about service to your community. They wrote holiday cards to be distributed at the Senior Center and built 3 ice ladders to be used and distributed by the
Westborough Fire Department
. For anyone not familiar, the Fire Department puts these ice ladders, which will be painted red, around the bodies of water in Westborough. Their purpose is for public use in case of an ice emergency. The ladder is slid out on the ice (there is a rope attached as well) and anyone who has fallen through the ice can use the cross posts to help climb out. The kids learned so much during this activity and are happy to help replace Westborough's missing/vandalized ice ladders.
If you have ever been approached by a Scout outside of a grocery store and asked "would you like to buy some popcorn to support my pack?" then you helped fund these ice ladders! Scouts used the money they raised from popcorn sales to pay for the supplies and give back to Westborough. Thank you to
First United Methodist Church in Westborough, Ma
for letting us use your parking lot for this meeting so that we can continue to meet safely outdoors.



Earth Day Cleanup

Every year, Pack 33 takes part of the town-wide Earth Day clean up event.  Our pack took a route along Smith Parkway by the train station to help beautify.  It was a great opportunity for the scouts to learn about service and how to take care of our planet. Great work scouts!

   

Feb Pack Meeting: Bike Safety

posted Apr 19, 2021, 1:21 PM by Pack 33 Admin

Pack 33 brought their bikes and helmets to the Mill Pond parking lot for the February Pack Meeting where they learned about Bike Safety. Den leader Mark Harden even provided a cool demonstration, dropping an egg with a "helmet" on and showing the kids how important safety equipment is. It was nice to see everyone, and the kids had fun riding around the parking lot for a bit!

   
  

Scouting for Food

Every year the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts work together for their Scouting for Food drive in order to support the Westborough Food Pantry. This year, more than ever, many families are relying on the food pantry to help them get by. Our boys were proud to collect bags on November 14th to help with the effort. 
   

Camp Resolute Camping Overnight

The volunteers of Pack 33 really pulled off a great camping trip, amid a unique world situation. They made sure we were able to social distance while hiking, orienteering, tying knots, playing human foosball, eating around the campfire and star gazing.  Scouts is a wonderful time and these boys are making tons of memories!

Fishing with Friends

On Saturday August 8th, Pack 33 went fishing!  It was a great way to connect as a pack, while maintaining social distancing. And it was a beautiful day to boot! That's the great thing about Scouts -- so many activities are outside.

We parked along Minuteman Park on Upton Rd and took to the shore of Sandra Pond.
