Cub Scouts Fall Registration

It’s that time of year again to sign-up for Cub Scout early bird registration. If you want your son (first grade or higher) to have some fun, excitement, outdoor opportunities, and a chance to participate in a program in which he doesn’t always have to win- instead, he learns about “Doing Your Best” and how to be helpful to others- then we have just the program for you!

Cub Scouting is a home- and neighborhood- centered program designed to support and encourage quality family involvement for boys in the first through fifth grades. Each Cub Scout learns to respect his home, country, and other people. The program also helps boys of this age to:

  • Learn new physical skills through sports, crafts, and games
  • Learn how to get along with others through group activities
  • Develop new mental skills such as writing and calculating and develop personal independence
  • Learn to make values-based decisions that assist them throughout their adult life

Scouts will participate in Parades, Fishing Derby, Camping Trips, Hiking Trips, Pinewood Derby Races, Sleepovers, Community Events, Conservation Projects, arts and crafts and a variety of other fun filled activities.

Now is your chance to sign up for Cub Scouting! To sign up or for more information, please contact: Tom Brady at Cubmaster@woburn502.mypack.us or Brian Grace 617-512-7186 to arrange a meet and greet.

McTeggart's Concert Cancelled Again Due to Unsettled Weather!

**Updated 8/7/14** We are very disappointed to report - and we're sure you are too - that due to unsettled weather heading our way, the highly anticipated McTeggart's concert has been cancelled, a second time, with no further rain date for the 2014 Horn Pond Concert Series. Unfortunately, The McTeggart's don't have any other available dates the rest of this season, as the original date and rain date were set back in February.
 
The McTeggart's, SCI and local sponsor, McCue Garden Center arrived at the pond last Friday, in hopes of the rain passing, but unfortunately the rain persisted and today's decision was not made lightly. The McTeggart's made the call, that for the safety of their fans, tonight's concert would be cancelled.
 
We hope to welcome the McTeggart's back to the 2015 Horn Pond Concert Series, but until then, we still have one final concert, Pamela Steebler, scheduled to take place on August 22.
