Pack 886 Returns Stolen Backpack

posted Sep 13, 2014, 3:23 PM by Webmaster 886   [ updated May 26, 2015, 10:51 AM by Alex Woravka ]

This morning at Alden Bridge Park, Pack 886 was out having a great time while cleaning up our Adopt-A-Path park. The Scouts came across a backpack in the woods filled with personal journals, a digital camera, an external hard drive, and a USB thumb drive. 

After locating a name on the papers, they used FaceBook to find the owner and arranged to return it to her. After getting home for Spring Break after a long drive, she was tired and did not finish unloading her car and forgot to lock it. Someone came into her driveway and took the backpack. The thief kept the Apple laptop and iPad and threw the backpack in the woods. Based on Find My iPhone, the police went to a house in Conroe to look for the backpack didn't find it.

Even though she didn't get her computer and iPad back, she was really happy to get the rest of her possessions back. Most important was the notebook where she had worked years to identify the qualities she wanted in a husband. Now recently engaged, she wanted to share the list with her fiancee. She was really happy and grateful to get some of her stuff back 6 months after the theft. 

Great job Scouts and you definitely did Your Good Turn today!

Website, Calendar & Distribution Changes!

posted Aug 23, 2014, 12:44 PM by Webmaster 886   [ updated May 26, 2015, 10:52 AM by Alex Woravka ]


Welcome to the Pack 886 website and glad you are visiting us.  We are in the middle of updating the website for the 2014-2015 Scout year, so the changes have been fast so check back often.  

Last year Google recognized us as a non-profit group and have donated some really nice services that allow us to do some items we didn't have access to previously.  I wanted to wait until summer to make some of the changes to minimize the impact, but they are occuring now.  One of the things is you will see all the calendar addresses changed, which means if you subscribed to the Pack 886 or your den calendar, those subscriptions will need to be updated.  We will also be rolling out new distribution lists for the Pack and all Dens.  This all aimed at making the pack communications more efficient, please let me know your suggestions.

Yours in Scouting,
Alex

Thank You Powell!

We wanted to thank everyone at Powell that allowed us to set up a table during Meet the Teacher night last Thursday.  We had the opportunity to meet a lot of really great people and tell them about Cub Scouts and Pack 886!  It seemed like we may have several new Scouts and volunteers to help make our Pack even better! Looking forward to meeting them again at our first Pack Meeting of the new Scout Year on September 8th.

Flags for Fallen Vets

posted Mar 26, 2014, 7:32 PM by Webmaster 886   [ updated Aug 23, 2014, 12:45 PM ]

For the second year, Pack 886 is looking for volunteers to place flags on the graves at the Houston National Cemetery on May 25, 2014.  To do this we are teaming up with Flags for Fallen Vets and with the help of many other volunteers all 65,000+ graves will have a flag for Memorial Day.  Last year, we arrived around 7:00am and were finished by 11:00. 

If you would like to volunteer, please send me the following by noon Wednesday April 2:  First and last names of adults, and first name of scout and me too.

I’m sorry I don’t have a lot of details at the moment, but I will have more as the date nears and will pass them along to our list of volunteers.

 

Yours In Scouting,

Steve
