BLUE AND GOLD
Friday March 7, 6:00PM REED INTERMEDIATE CAFETORIUM
Cub Scout Pack 270 Blue & Gold Banquet
The Blue & Gold is our annual Pack Banquet. Every Cub Scout Pack has one - it’s part of Scouting heritage and dates back to the 1930’s. We come together - Scouts, siblings, and parents - to celebrate our Pack and our boys’ accomplishments. The most important part of the event is when our Webelos 2’s cross the bridge over to Boy Scouts. It’s their graduation ceremony. We also have many special guests joining us that night, including CT Yankee Council members, local Boy Scouts, Lions Club members (our chartering organization), and others.
Some basic information:
Cub Scouts (and Leaders) MUST be in FULL UNIFORM. No camouflage - that’s a violation of the uniform).
The Pack provides the main meal - usually dishes like baked ziti, chicken nuggets, spaghetti. Then different dens (to be assigned) provide the other food we need - salads, drinks, rolls, etc. Den leaders will be informed of what their den families need to bring.
We serve buffet style.
Dessert is the Scout cake bake - every den will bake a cake or cupcakes. We have a “for fun” contest and give awards, including Best Scout theme, best Scout effort, tallest…Just have fun with it - and let the boys have fun and be creative!!!
Cost is $5/person (kids age 4 & under are free)
Allergies - there are a lot of kids (and parents and siblings) in the Pack with allergies. We can’t guarantee the food is allergen free, but we do try to help. Please, if possible, don’t use nuts in dishes that you bring.
We need help!!! We need help with set up, clean up, and keeping things running during the banquet, including the food tables. We will be sending a note around to den leaders asking for sign ups. Also. we will give Community Service hours to older siblings who want to help out. It’s a big event to pull off and we needs extra hands to do it!!!
1. What do parents wear? Please look neat and please skip the sweatpants.
2. Food allergies/special dietary needs - there will be vegetarian dishes/meatless dishes. See me f you have any special needs/questions; I will try to help.
One more thing - (as one parent to another) - we will try to be eating by 6:15, but we do have to serve upwards of 175 - 200 people. (Just FYI, in case your kids might need a snack before they come.)
