What a great turn out for our Blue & Gold Banquet in February! Our Scouts enjoyed home-cooked tacos, knot-tying, and flame-roasted s'mores while celebrating each others' accomplishments - including our Scout-of-the-Year: Lance Fair, and our Volunteer-of-the-Year: Blake Bostwick!
A huge thank you to all the parents, family, and Troop 15 & 1015 Scouts who helped before, during and after the event - that was true community spirit in action and it was heart-warming to witness.
The pack got to explore the life of bugs at the last pack meeting, courtesy of the INSECT DISCOVERY LAB. Scouts got to see and hold beetles, millipedes, tarantulas, walking sticks, whip scorpions and more!
Marin Council have recognized Aurora 'Rorie' Garcia from Pack 7 as their Cub Scout of the Year!
"With a commitment to community service, Aurora has spearheaded several activities including a warm coat drive, battery collection and recycling, and holiday cards for hospitalized veterans. She has influenced and inspired other Scouts to join her in support of these diverse service projects. 'A Scout is Kind' "
Congratulations to our Webelo scouts that received their Arrow Of Light Award and bridged into Scouts BSA troops 15 and 1015! Check out their awards on our Instagram feed.
Hello Pack 7 Families - it was great to see everyone at the Pinewood Derby! There were some great-looking cars and the competition was fierce. Congrats to this year's race winners, who can receive their trophies at our next Pack meeting on April 17th at Camp Tamarancho.

A mass teddy bear hunt is under way around the world to help distract the millions of children locked down because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Stuffed toys are being placed in windows to give children a fun and safe activity while walking around their neighborhood with parents.
The hunt is inspired by the children’s book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, written by UK author Michael Rosen.
Pack 7 Teddy Bears are popping up all over town. Join us on a Bear Hunt! Put a teddy bear in your window too! As families take neighborhood walks they can join in the "scavenger hunt" and spy some teddy bears!
Check out some bears owned by Pack 7 cub scouts........
Scouting @ Home Ideas
Service Project Idea: A Scout is a Friend to All
Under the present circumstances, many seniors in our community can't leave their homes nor are they able to enjoy friends or family visiting. We'd like to help comfort them and hope that Marin Scouts will join in a service project during the next month or so.
If you'd like to write to a senior in our community letting them know Scouts are thinking about them during this crisis, you can US mail or email them to the Marin Council, BSA office and we will send them out. Don't include personal address information in the body of the letter; we will forward any responses to you directly. For more information email Michael Dybeck. Thanks in advance for your participation!
