Seattle Friends of Scouting

The Seattle BSA council's Friends of Scouting campaign is underway. Families are asked to consider investing in the important Friends of Scouting Campaign. Your gift does so much to support at-risk programs in Seattle, provides camp scholarships, helps to maintain our wonderful Scout camps, helps to maintain buildings and equipment, and helps to provide training programs. Here is a link to donate online. You can give a one-time gift or join the Summit Circle and give a monthly donation. Select “Sammamish Trails” and “Cub Scout Pack 550” so our pack is credited.

Del Chafe and Vickie Sirisivath will lead us on a short hike at Marymoor Park. We will meet in Lot G (Dog Park, Bird Trail) at 10:00 a.m. Please bring money for parking. It is $1.00, and there is a pay station in Lot G.

Scouting for Food - 3/16/19 and 3/23/19 (Saturday)

Scouting for Food is an annual Seattle Council-wide food drive service project. Our pack will join other packs and troops across Kirkland to collect food to benefit Hopelink.
