Happy New Year to the Cub Scout Pack 141 and Frontier Girls Troop 377 family. We pray that each of you will have a wonderful and blessed start to the New Year and that your blessings will continue throughout the entire year. As always, remember to always give thanks.

Thanks for all that you are doing as parents to keep our programs alive with your son(s) and daughter(s), for it is greatly appreciated. We will get to the other side of these unprecedented times and when we do, we will be able to look back and say, “Thank God, we made it.” So, keep the faith, continue to be strong, and stay the course so that we can finish this race together. Miss seeing and talking to you all. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Cubmaster. Stay safe. Continued blessings.

In response to the many on-going concerns related to COVID-19, the Church has announced that they have extended the suspension of on-site indoor group activities through the end of January 2021. CPC believes this to be in the best interest of the congregation and the community at large. Watch for more information.

The Scoutbook Team has announced that there is a known issue with accessing Scoutbook after the recent domain change. BSA IT is working to resolve the issue. Known workarounds to access Scoutbook, on either a computer or mobile device, are either:

  1. Clear your cache. See How to Clear Cache for All Major Browsers and clear cookies for the domain. See How to Clear Cookies for a Specific Site.
  2. Use an incognito or private window to access Scoutbook at See Finding Your Browser's Private Browsing Mode for instructions for various browsers.

More about this issue and when it is resolved will be posted on

The BSA strictly adheres to and enforces COVID-19 Guidelines at all events.

New Year's Day – January 1, 2021

Even though we have been unable to meet in person, we are meeting via email. Adventure loop/pin requirements are being sent out on the schedule den meeting days of each group. If you need to see the meeting schedule, please check out the schedule, located on the “Meetings” page under the “Schedules” tab on the main menu bar. Please check your email on your scheduled meeting days for the next assignment.

CONGRATULATUIONS!!! All Scout Awards earned during the 2019-2020 Scouting year have been mailed out. We had hoped to hand them to you personally, but because we have been unable to meet, it was decided that this was the next best thing. We are proud of all that you did in earning these awards. So, stay safe and continue the great work.

THANK YOU!!! All Popcorn Prizes have earned during the 2020 Popcorn Fundraiser have been mailed out. We appreciate all who participated in this fundraising event and applaud your efforts considering the circumstances faced during the event. Again, thank you.

Just a reminder that Class A uniforms are required for all our scout and are to be worn in their entirety to all scouting functions unless otherwise noted. For more information about Scout uniforms, see the “Uniforms” page under the “About” tab on the main menu bar. For those who have just joined, we understand that uniforms are purchased at the Scout Store in Roanoke and that it may not be convenient for you to travel there before your first scouting function. Please do not let your lack of not having a uniform prevent you from coming to any of our meetings, events, or functions.

In case you did not know, Christiansburg Presbyterian Church (CPC) offers a Family of Scouting program that consist of Boy Scout Troop 141 (11-18 years old), Cub Scout Pack 141 (5-10 years old), and Frontier Girls Troop 377 (3-18 years old and mothers can play too). Most of you are aware of the BSA scouting programs, but what is Frontier Girls? Our Frontier Girls Troop 377 was started in January 2016 as an alternative scouting-type program for the highly active and spirited young girls who wanted to experience a program that mirrored one that many of their brothers, who had joined the BSA scouting program experienced. Because the “Frontier Girls” program itself permits a seamless integration with the local BSA programs, the program is the perfect complement to the existing BSA scouting programs already sponsored by CPC, but one that would cater specifically to the young girls in the community. If you have family members or friends that you think would be interested in any of our Family of Scouting programs, please share this information with them. We each have websites as well as Facebook pages. Should they have any questions, they can always contact us.


It is “Not Too Late For Scouting” and we could use your help spreading the word. If you know of a young boy who would benefit from the Scouting program, please invite the entire family to your next Den meeting or to our next Pack meeting.

This would a great way for them to see firsthand what the Scouting program and our Pack are all about. Please share this information with your family and friends because they may know someone who could benefit from these great programs. If they have any questions before the meeting, please have them to contact our Cubmaster. Once again, we thank you for your help.

It has been a few years since our new website rolled out and became live. Since that time, our website team has been diligently working to build a more user-friendly website that will grant access to information about our Pack as well as updates and news from our Pack. Most websites have what is referred to as “a site map,” which is very similar to the “table of content” one finds at the beginning of a book. This table of content lists the pages of the particular website with active links. This map is designed to help visitors to easily navigate through the website and help visitors easily find the exact content they are looking for on the website. While our site continues to be a “work-in-progress,” we believe this addition will be beneficial to all who visit. You can find our “Site Map” under under the “About” tab on the main menu bar.


For information or information about online registration, go to the Blue Ridge Mountains Council website and look under the Activities & Training on the main menu bar.

The SCOUTStrong Presidential Active Lifestyle Award Challenge

We have several means by which you can keep track of all the upcoming events in our Pack. Every month we will send out our Monthly News Update via email, highlighting the upcoming events for the month. We will post much of the same information on our website on our “Announcements” page under the “News” tab on the main menu bar. And we will post events weekly on our Facebook Page. We also have our Pack calendar on our website on our “Calendar” page under the “Schedules” tab on the main menu bar. And you can always see our latest, “Cub News Newsletter” on our “Newsletter” page under the “News” tab on the main menu bar.

Should you ever have a question, do not hesitate to contact any of the Den leadership. We want you to be informed and we use these tools to keep you informed with the latest Pack information, events, and announcements. So, if you ever need information, we have several places available where you can find what you need. And if you cannot find it anywhere else, you can always contact our Scout Leadership or our Cubmaster.

If you have a new email address or another address that you would like to add to our distribution list, please email the Cubmaster the information and it will be forwarded to the appropriate Den Leaders. Please include the name to whom the address belongs and the scout’s name that the address is to be connected to.

Images, photos, and/or pictures of our activities, which may include our scouts and members of their family, are posted on our official Facebook Page. Please know that we do not practice “tagging” in the images, photos, and/or pictures that we post to any of our social media sites and we strongly discourage the practice for privacy reasons as well as an overall general security standpoint. Every effort has been made to completely disable this feature on the social media sites that we use so that others cannot “tag” anyone in any of our images, photos, and/or pictures, however we make no guarantees, either expressly or implied. If you, as a parent or guardian would like to “opt out” of having images, photos, and/or pictures of your son or any members of your family published/posted on either of social media sites, please submit a signed and dated written request to the Cubmaster stating,

“I do not grant Pack 141 or any of the organization’s registered leaders permission to publish/post any images, photos, and/or pictures on any Pack 141 social media sites that can clearly identify my son or any members of my family to the general public.”


Every Scout in the pack is required to have a Personal Health And Medical form for 2020 - 2021 on file. Please make sure that you get one to your Den Leaders. For a copy of the form, click HERE.
