We'll kick off our Christmas celebrations with the Auburn Christmas Parade on Thursday, December 12.  The parade starts at 5:00pm in downtown Auburn and typically lasts about an hour.  See below for details.  Then, on Friday, we'll get together for a unique Christmas Party.  We're going to hang out in the AUMC Annex and watch a movie with some snacks.  We'll also collect toys for Toys For Tots.  See below for details on the Christmas Party on Friday.  Notice that this year the events are on different nights, which is different than recent years.

Christmas Parade - Thursday (Dec 12)
  • Uniform: Class A (Don't bring a hat - we'll provide a special one.)
  • Meet at 4:30 at float. Check your scout in.  (Hint: Use bathroom first.)  Float will be in line with other parade floats on either Mell or Thatch near the Auburn University library.  We are #37.
  • Once your scout is checked in, he must stay on float until the parade ends.
  • Parade Starts at 5:00 and lasts about one hour.
  • Meet at either Mell or Thatch after the parade to get your scout. We will likely not be in the same spot, but look for us.
Christmas Party - Friday, (Dec 13)
  • Uniform: Comfortable clothes (even pajamas if you want)
  • Starts at 7:00pm  and will be held in the AUMC Annex Social Hall (where Pinewood Derby is).  The party will end around 9:00pm.
  • We'll be gathering for snacks and a movie (Down & Derby).  The Pack is providing popcorn, utensils, cups, etc.  We're asking you to bring something to share!  This is NOT dinner, but dessert.  So eat first.  Please bring the following per the first letter of your last name:
A-F: Salty snack foods
G-O: Sweets
P-Z: Soft drinks (2 liters)
  • At the party we will enjoy the food and the movie, but we'll also present toys collected to the Auburn Fire Department for Toys For Tots, so be sure to bring a new unwrapped toy.
  • We'll also be hanging out on the floor as we watch the movie, so you should bring some type of blanket or something to relax on. (Chairs will be available for adults.)
  • We do have some den assignments for the party, similar to Pack Meetings:
Setup (Arrive at 6:30): Den 1 (Lytle)
Serving (Arrive at 6:50): Den 6 (Scott)
Cleanup: Den 2 (Gard), Den 3 (J Brown), Den 9 (Walz), Den 10 (Washburn)
