Cub Scout Pack 227
As you know, the Huntington Beach 4th of July Parade is the largest one west of the Mississippi. This year the Pacifica District of the Orange County Council of the Boy Scouts of America (the district in which Pack 227 is located) will have a single Cub Scout Marching Unit and Garrison Color Guard that is limited to 50 Scouts and Leaders. Of that amount, Pack 227 has been given permission to have a limited number of Cub Scouts and a few leaders. Current Tigers will be considered Wolves by the 4th of July and are eligible for the Marching Unit and Garrison Color Guard. All Scouts must wear their full Class A uniform and be ready to walk the entire parade route. Parents will need to drop their Scouts off at the staging area and pick them up (details on this will be provided).
In addition to the Marching Unit, there will be a float for Lions and Tigers (but no Bears ! Ha!). Please note that current Lions will be considered Tigers by the 4th of July. Therefore, they are eligible to ride on the float. However, in order to ride on the float they will need to be in full Class A uniform. Here is a link on information about what a Class A uniform looks like https://www.scouting.org/programs/cub-scouts/uniform/cubscout/ If you have (or know of) boys that want to become Lion Scouts (ie. entering kindergarten this Fall) then they are eligible to ride on the float. However, they will need to wear the Lion t-shirt and cap. Here is a link on what they look like:
Parents of Lions and Tigers will walk behind the float and will need to wear a Pacifica District float t-shirt at a nominal cost.
If you sign up for this event your Scout will be expected to attend. Since we are very limited on the number of Scouts that are allowed to participate we do not want Scouts that really want to attend denied that opportunity because another Scout that signed up failed to show up. Having said that, if your Scout is interested and serious about attending please sign up below. First come first serve! ).
Your Scouts will have a terrific time and the event is televised!
