Service Hours

Tracking service hours is an important way to show our impact in our community. Thank you for taking the time to report your unit’s hours. To submit your service hours, please go to the following link:

https://servicehours.scouting.org/UI/Security/Login.aspx

If you need to create a new account, the two important pieces of information that you need are:

Your Unit ID—This is your Internet Advancement ID.  If you do not have it, please contact Naudain Radcliff with your unit number and unit type (ex Pack 123).

Your Local Unit Number—This is your unit number, but it must be four digits long. Thus Pack 123 would be entered as 0123. Note: If you enter 123, it will return an error.

Upcoming Activities

Virtual Bowling Tournament – Aug. 1-8, 2017

Pick a night between August 1st and 8th to go bowling with your Den, Pack, Patrol, Troop or Crew. The event is open to all Cubs Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers and Leaders. This is a great opportunity for Cub Scouts and Packs to finish the requirements for the individual Summertime ActivityPin or the National Summertime Pack Award. You pick the date and the bowling alley and email pictures of each person’s best score along with your den or patrol name and unit number to lesliemiller366@gmail.com. Please use first name and last initial and indicate their category. We must have pictures to show participation.

The top 3 in each category (Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, Arrow of Light, Boy Scout, Venturer and Leader) will be recognized in the District newsletter and on our upcoming new Facebook page. Prizes will be awarded for the best overall score in the Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, and Arrow of Light categories. Winners will be announced in August. Scores must be submitted no later than August 10th to be included in the results.
