The discount card sells for $5.00 and units keep up to $2.50 per card that they sell. The sale begins on February 23, 2015 and ends May 4, 2015. Each camp card contains discount offers from different vendors. Some offers can be redeemed multiple times and some are one time use only. All offers are valid during the 2014 calendar year. Approximate value of this card is over $250.

LHC Incentive: For every 35 cards sold (enough to earn the way to Day Camp), the Scout’s name will be entered in a drawing for a $50 iTunes gift card. Cards will be available for distribution in Monday, February 23, 2015.

Pack 130 will be issuing 10 cards for each scout for starter to sell and more can be avaible on request with proceeds going to individual summertime camping with the Pack (Jellystone) or LHC daycamp or resident camp 2015. The Pack Treasurer (Tara Lopez) will be the fundraiser chair of this event and will keep a scout roster of cards sold as all sales will need to be validated to prevent conflicts later. At the conclution of the fundraiser all unsold card need to be returned at the den meeting on May 4, 2015.

Pack 130 Spring Pack Campout - Otter Creek Park, KY

            

Pack 130 will be hosting a camping event at Otter Creek State Outdoor Recreation Area located between Fort Knox and the Ohio River. 

Cost will cover food, snacks, and campsite...and yes family members are welcome!

Location: Otter Creek State Recreational Area

Date: May 1, 2015, depart from MUMC @ 5:00 pm


          May 3, 2015, return to MUMC @ 11:00 am


Uniform: Field Uniform (Class A) for Flag Ceremony, Meals, Campfire, and Scouts Own Service and  Activity Uniform (Class B) for all other activities

Cost: $10.00 per person payable when you arrive at MUMC or Camp Site, this covers food and sites

Group Leader: Eric Bullock, Cubmaster

Weather: BEAUTIFUL with very slight chance of rain

*Optional: All others not wanting to travel with the group from MUMC can simply meet us at the Camp Grounds front gate. Let them know that you are with Pack 130 and they will direct you to the camp site. 


Directions from E-Town: Travel North on US 31W to the intersection of US-31W and HWY 1638. Turn left onto HWY 1638 and follow it approximately 4 miles to the entrance of the area on the right.

Our activities will include: FISHING, hiking, compass game, capture the flag, leave-no-trace activity and conservation activity.

We will spend the majority of Saturday trying to catch fish, the stream was stocked yesterday with several thousand trout and one has my name on it. Youth 15 and under do not need licenses to fish, but they need poles, hooks, bait, lures, etc. Adults need a Kentucky fishing license and if you want to keep that trout a "trout stamp". These are available for purchase at the front gate. We will be hiking out to the "Blue Hole" and each youth will need a small pack with their essentials. Water, hat, rain gear, sun screen, bug repellant, compass, lunch will be provided, flashlight, fishing gear, etc. the hike is a relatively flat 1/2 mile out and back. I hiked it today and it is a quick trip, note that the banks of the river are VERY muddy so for that part of the day I recommend the old tennis shoes as they will be covered with mud and there may be some wading involved in the fishing. If we catch enough it will be fish for supper. 

Along the way we will be picking up trash so that we can leave it better than we find it and may do a little trail repair.

We will also be playing a compass game and each youth will need to have a compass to participate (I am sure there are a few extras that folks will bring).

We will have access to shower facilities so bring toiletries and a change of clothes if you like, do not forget your shower shoes (ick)

As we will have already turned in our final awards for their current rank, this will be a FUN outing focused on learning new skills, experiencing new things and fellowship.

Memorial United Methodist Church Pack 130 learns first aid

(The News-Enterprise - 12/25/2009 -
click for link)

What looked like a triaging unit was actually a lesson in first aid. Cub Scouts from Pack 130, took a class in first aid at Elizabethtown’s American Red Cross. Cindy Lineberger taught the scouts basic life saving procedures that they need to fulfill requirements for their Webelos Readyman Activity Pin. Scouts learned how to help a choking victim, the best way to immobilize an injured person and how to correctly tie a sling. First aid skills are a necessary part of training young scouts. Cindy Lineberger looks on while Pack 130 Webelos Cub Scouts take turns helping the choking victim training dummy.

Purpose
The success of Scouting in the Lincoln Heritage Council has for over 102 years depended entirely on the quality and strength of the volunteers that deliver meaningful weekly programs to its 29,000 Scouts. The ability of volunteers to deliver that weekly program is strengthened by quality training at the district and council level. The Lincoln Heritage Council has much to be proud of in the area of quality training.

The University of Scouting is a one-day training event that offers workshops for Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Venturing, Commissioner, and District Committee volunteers. The council training committee has assembled the best trainers in the council, and has selected a wide spectrum of individual workshops that will strengthen each volunteer’s ability to deliver better Scouting for our youth. We think you will agree that the range of workshops available through the University of Scouting will improve your leadership skills and deepen your understanding of the impact Scouting has on young people. Encourage every volunteer and interested parent to take the time to attend; we are sure that they will walk away with not only new skills and ideas, but with some new and renewed passion for Scouting.

The University will combine five Colleges:

  • College of General Studies
  • College of Cub Scouting
  • College of Boy Scouting
  • College of Venturing
  • Youth Leadership Academy

In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for 1 in 6 people in the United States, hunger is a reality. Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, certain areas of the country, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different.  Right now, millions of Americans are struggling with hunger. These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days.

Pack 130 will be working with Feeding America of Kentucky in Elizabethtown to educate and gain a better understanding how hunger effects our community and provide much need service for those in need keeping in our scouting values: "a scout is helpful".

This is a pack community project so attendance is required from our pack working toward our pack community service "Messengers of Peace" ring badge so please plan to attend

Pack 130 Salvation Army Bell Ringer Service Day

Date: December 6, 2013
Time: 12:00pm - 6:00pm
Uniform: Class A's and a warm coat!

One of the most-recognized symbols of The Salvation Army is the bell ringer with a red kettle standing in front of a grocery store or shopping mall. The Red Kettle campaign is The Salvation Army's largest fundraiser, contributing hundreds of thousands of dollars to programs helping people in Hardin County - Kentucky. Hundreds of volunteers are needed to cover the many hours of bell-ringing.

Pack 130 has been asked by The Salvation Army of Elizabethtown to adopt a "Red Kettle" supporting our local community working 30 minute shifts with two scouts manning the kettle totaling 24 scouts so this will be a group effort!

Details and sign-up time slots are posted below with "?" are open at this time. For those who volunteer, BSA and Salvation Army policies state that a adult must be with EACH scout (unless this adult is of the same family - i.e. brother/sister) at this event.

 

Basic Reminders:

1. Parent/Scout teams must be together for each group shift.
2. Scouts/Parents need to be in either Scout Uniform or respectable attire in public as we are not only representing Scouting but the Salvation Army of Elizabethtown.
3. No food or snack while ringing, but short break (for those over 30 minutes) as acceptable. 

If you are interested please call or email your den leader or cubmaster as we will be putting together a roster for the Pack 130 on this project. By donating your time our pack can make those less fortunate have a more joyous season in keeping with the holiday spirit of service.

During World War I, Boy Scouts planted vegetable gardens to provide food for the hungry. President Roosevelt called on Scouts to collect food for the needy during the Great Depression. Planting Victory Gardens were the Scouting "good turns" organized during World War II.

Today, Boy Scouts continue their community service by helping the hungry in Kentucky
. The national initiative “Good Turn for America” encourages companies, community organizations, and Scouts to be involved in local community-service that fights hunger through their participation in Lincoln Heritage Council’s Annual Scouting for Food drive. Since 1987, over 108 million units of food have been collected and distributed to Kentucky county food banks. However, the need to help the hungry continues to grow.
