Tiger Pack 233 Awards Assembly Meeting
March 29th, Tiger Pack 233 met for their monthly Awards Assembly at the Lake Geneva, Fire Station, Thursday evening at 7pm.
Scouts meet weekly each month , then all the dens meet for a monthly awards ceremony where youths are recognized for works they have done during the month . Each month , scouts have several projects that revolve around a centralized theme.
March’s theme was “Mans Best Friend”, involving many projects relating to and about their connections with the animal world. At the awards Assembly, WILDTALK was invited to present their educational program that is offered to schools, scout groups, seniors, and environmental groups .Several “educational ambassadors” of different species attended the meeting where scouts were able to learn and interact with several of their animal friends.
Miriya, an African Caracal, Bruno and Bubba, European Ferrets, Harli the African pygmy hedgehog, an Iguana Lizard and others captivated the attention of both young and older in fascination.
Also in attendance were Sue Seppie and her service dog, Hanna. Scouts learned about how valuable service dogs are to those they share their lives with. Service dogs are not limited to visually impaired, but also assist in areas where persons are differently challenged, as well as visiting hospitals and the homebound in animal therapy programs.
April’s Scout Theme is “Save it For Us!” which incorporates the values of recycling and saving the earth and our future resources.
April 17th, Scouts participated in a Beach CleanUp , at Library Park, Lake Geneva. Late projects will combine into May, for early Mother’s Day activity to include a visit to Peche’s GreenHouse on Hwy 50 West, to plant seedlings and also a tour of the Green House.
Each den works on several projects thru out the yr towards their merit badge goals. Example, the Bear Badge is earned by a combination of skills such as whittling, arrow points and good deeds/community service.
One Bear Badge is the result of 40 different challenges, physically, mentally, and spiritually. With each months theme, Scouts work towards their goals of earning many Merit badges throughout the total year.
