Wolves Get in the Spirit of Giving

Wolves present the gifts they made The Mighty Wolves had the opportunity to make a gift for someone at their last den meeting.  The boys worked on elective 9 – “Let’s Have a Party” and made a Christmas Gift anyone would enjoy.  The boys filled Christmas Mugs with hot chocolate and marshmallows, wrapped them with cellophane, and tied a bow.  The boys are going to make a custom card for someone with instructions:  “just add hot water and enjoy!”.  Check out more adventures of the Wolf den in our Photo Albums.

Bears and Wolves Entertain at the Emeritus

The Mighty Bear Den brought Christmas cheer to the Emeritus Assisted Living Community last Friday with Christmas carols and companionship. After the singing, the boys had a chance to visit with the residents and give them Christmas cards that they had made.  Three Wolves joined in with the Bears and brought home-made cookies to the residents that they themselves had baked that day. Smiling faces were plentiful that evening, while scouts and their families received plenty of Christmas cheer in return.


See more pictures of the evening in our photo albums.
