Hello everyone!! Pack 811’s next summertime event will be this Saturday, August 25th to assist the Bread of Angels Ministry in serving meals to those in need in Orange County. Those of you who participated in this event last year, you might recall the overwhelming emotions and joy in the faces of those we served. For those of you have not yet had the opportunity to assist, you will find this both a memorable and rewarding experience. This is a wonderful opportunity for the Pack to give back to our community, support the Church’s mission and present a wonderful life lesson (or two!) to our young boys. This even qualifies for some scout activities (for example, Tigers e11, Wolf 11d, Bear 1b or 3f, Webelos 8e)
We will need two shifts of helpers for the event. First shift will be from 7am to 9:30am and the second shift will be from 9:30-12:00pm. All the meals are prepared by the Bread of Angels staff in the Church Hall at St. Angela Merici. Parents and siblings over 14 years of age may be needed to help in the kitchen and in the hall to help serve the guests. The scouts and siblings under 14 are needed to help take orders (for lunch only; breakfast is self-served) and serve food to the guests. (The boys will not be able to help in the kitchen due to their young age.) Order taking will be easy; the guests will have a paper menu and they will select their choices by marking boxes and handing the paper/menu back to the scouts who will present them to the kitchen. The boys can serve and interact with the guests during the day.
We will also have the boys conduct a flag ceremony with a pledge of allegiance recital, which was a BIG hit last year. The uniform for this event will be the Pack T-shirts; keep the Class A shirts at home to keep them clean! Parents, you might want to bring a kitchen apron if you have one.
