Pack 44 has been part of the Newfane community for over 50 years, based in village of Newfane. With this in mind, we are focused on volunteer service, in the Newfane community. Our scouting for food program donates several thousand food items every year to the Newfane food bank. These are food items collected door to door by our scouts. We also provide free color guard and flag ceremonies to several Newfane organizations like the Newfane historical society, VFW, and Newfane Town Parades. We also team up with Boy Scout
Troop 22 from Newfane for several events. If you live in the Newfane community check out Cub Scout Pack 44 at our School Night for Scouting Open House night on Tuesday September 24th, 6:30 @ Newfane United Methodist Church . We’ll have games, snacks,
and plenty of fun things to do. This will also give you and your child a chance to meet our scouts and talk to our leaders.
At 44 we are all about our scouts and their families. Our main goal as a pack is to enrich the lives of our kids and reinforce values such as character, responsibility, honesty, and team building. In addition to our den and pack meetings we do a ton of pack outings like our Cub Master Camp outs, pack rocket launch, and pinewood derby. We are also focused on the needs of our scouts and their families. We work with the Newfane Lions Club to sponsor scouts in our pack that need financial assistance for summer camp. We also do fund raising
events throughout the year like our annual pancake breakfast. Our kids really enjoy being servers for these events and it teaches them responsibility at the same time. Our goal is that no scout will ever be left out of Scouting or any activity for financial reasons.
Our Den meetings are Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm. We are conveniently located in the village of Newfane at the United Methodist Church, on the corner on Main St and East Ave. If you live in the village you can probably walk, if not, it’s a short drive, which is huge in the middle of January. If your child is interested, but can’t come to either open house give us a call, text, or come to a den meeting
Hope to see you there!
