Lake Palo Duro Cleanup

On April 13th, 2013, the Lone Wolf District held the annual Lake Palo Duro Cleanup. The attendance included Pack and Troop 256 from Perryton, Troop 551 and Troop 250 from Spearman, Troop 163 from Spearman, and Troop 548 from Fritch. Total amount of volunteers was 40, with a total of 63 youth in attendance. The day was windy, the lunch most welcome, and all of these units gave back and helped clean up one of the areas frequented by scouts every year. Thanks for all you did guys!

Pack 46 Blue and Gold

Pack 46 held its annual Blue and Gold banquet also on April 13th, 2013. Barbecue was served, as well as an assortment of wonderful and colorful desserts. The cubs put on several skits and sang a lot of songs. It was wonderful to see all of the looks on the parents faces as each cub got his advancements for the evening.

Lake Fryer Cleanup

The Lake Fryer Cleanup will be held on Saturday, May 18th, at Camp Parnell. The option to camp the nights of the 17th and 18th will be offered. Lunch will be served on the 18th and patches provided as well. Make sure to have the proper amount of leadership for all units and parents for Cub Scouts.

LONE WOLF CAMPING AND ACTIVITY CORNER-Beaver Sand Dunes

How about a fun day with sand? Ok, so, it’s not the beach, but, the Beaver Sand Dunes in Beaver County does offer many other amazing activities and sights. There are 520 acres to ride about on in a dune buggy, and, 300 acres of it are sand hills. There is fishing, hiking, a playground, and two campgrounds. Do you know what one of my favorite activities as a kid on a field trip to the dunes? We would take our snow sleds and slide down the side of a sand dune. We may not always have snow to do this, so, sand is a wonderful alternative! So, next time you are in the eastern part of the Oklahoma Panhandle, stop by the Sand Dunes and take a look! Perhaps this will be the next site of your next outing!
