Memorial Day Ceremony at Fogelsville Cemetary

By MrBroekhuis | May 31, 2011

A contingent of Cub Scouts and Leaders from Pack and Troop 72 attended the Memorial Day Service at Fogelsville St. John’s UCC cemetary. Several Girl Scout Troops were also represented, as were the Breinigsville VFW and Ladies’ Auxiliary. The service was led by pastor Joanne Marchetto, and included an Honor Guard Salute (loud enough that some fingers made their way into scouts’ ears!). Read more about it in the newspaper article in the Upper Macungie Patch, which also has some pictures of the event.

Parents and Den Leaders,

Here are some additional details for the upcoming Cubmobile which will be held on Sunday, April 17th.  While a flyer is attached, here is more information you can use to begin your preparations.

Date:                     Sunday, April 17th 2011

Time:                    Registration at 1:30 pm with races to start at 2:00 pm.

Location:             Computer Aid Inc parking lot — 1320 Hausman Road, Allentown

What is Cubmobile?

Cubmobile is very fun event that is held each spring. It involves 6 different events with boy-powered + boy-driven wooden carts. 

What are the Cubmobile events?

Cubmobile involves the following six events:


How does our den form a Cubmobile team?

Each Cubmobile event requires four scouts – one driving and three pushing.  While it is possible to compete with three strong scouts, four is much better.  I recommend that teams be anywhere between 4 and 7 scouts.  Teams with more than 4 scouts can have the scouts take turns participating in the different events.  Each scout is required to wear a bicycle helmet during the event.  Teams can include more than four scouts, although each race only involves four scouts.  Generally scouts take turns driving so that each scout has a chance to drive for one event.

Where can we get a cubmobile?

Mr. Heckendorn, Mr. Cope and I delivered the cubmobiles to the Camp Spirit basement yesterday.  At your earliest opportunity, please claim a cubmobile for your team(s).  There is a roll of duct tape and a Sharpie marker  in the basement near the cubmobiles.  Write your den number on the duct tape and stick it to your cubmobile. There are a couple of orange cubmobiles that are marked specifically for use by Tigers.  Please do not claim one of these unless you are a Tiger den.  If we have a really good turnout, we can schedule teams so that cubmobiles can be shared.

What should we be doing between now and the Cubmobile?

As soon as you can, please:


If you would like me to attend your den meeting to help with practice, let me know and I will do my best to make it.



Call Mark Stevens at 610-704-9167, or send  email to Thank you!
