Cub Scout Pack 108
Beech Grove, Indiana
Cub Scout Pack 108 meets at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church. Many of our Scouts attend Holy Name, and many are of other denominations. Pack 108 draws primarily from within the Beech Grove city limits, although a few scouts are from outside this area. We serve boys entering first through fifth grade.
Interested in joining Scouts?
Pack 108 is always looking for new boys who want to experience the adventure and camaraderie that Scouting has to offer. While we focus or recruiting efforts at the beginning of the school year, boys can join at any time. Call 317-697-3700 or click "Contact Us" to the left to request more information on how to join Pack 108, or just come to one of our meetings (see the schedule below). The Pack meetings are for all boys. Tiger Den Meetings are for First Grade, Wolf for Second, Bear for Third, and Webelos for Fourth and Fifth. For an introduction to Scouting, go to the Boy Scouts of America Web Site and click the "Cub Scouts" tab at the top.

Great job to everybody who sold popcorn. Counting order form sales and Show-And-Sells we sold $10,855. This is about $1000 more than last year! We'll be assessing what additional things we can add to the Schedule now that we know our budget. This will be the best funded year in at least 3 years.
A bit of background: The base commission on Popcorn sales is 34 percent So we get 34 percent of what we sell. However, we substantially increased sales over last year, so we get a bonus 3 percent which means we get 37 percent
So the extra $1000 sold yields an actual net increase of about $700 in Pack money. This, in turn has an outsized effect on what we can afford to do, because the Pack has some fixed expenses that must be paid out first (We have to pay about $1800 to the National to recharter for next year). So if our Popcorn sale generates a net of $2500, we only have about $700 for the year. But if it generates $3500, we have $1700.
The Popcorn money is in the bank, and our order with the Council has been placed. We'll be talking more about the delivery schedule soon.
