Blue & Gold Bash and Webelos Crossover 2018

Blue and Gold is always a fun time, but its bittersweet as we also send our Webelos off to be Boy Scouts. This year was no different…we had a great party with delicious food catered by Sckavone’s, a lovely birthday cake donated by Fred Meyer, a whole lot of family and friends and a great party atmosphere.

Lovely decorations, a slideshow presentation of all the fun Pack 351 has had this past scouting year, monthly awards including our first girls earning their Bobcat award, and  then ended the night with an Order of the Arrow crossover ceremony for our 7 Arrow of Light Webelos scouts.

We also said thank you and goodbye to our longtime Den Leader Joe, who will join his Webelos Den moving on to Boy Scout Troop 351…that was especially hard as he has been a bit of a rock for our Pack and we have been so grateful for all that he has contributed to our Pack.

A big THANK YOU to Bear Den parent Lisa for helping create our beautiful invitations,  Cubmaster Jen for the slideshow and table decorations, Wolf and Tiger Den scouts and families for helping set-up the party and the Bear and Webelos Den scouts and families for helping clean-up the party, our Venture Crew Guide Maria for all her assistance, and the Boy Scouts of Troop 351 and Explore Club Scouts of 351 for all their help and support!

Time for the Pack 351 Tree Recycle Fundraiser

Tree REcycle Flier2That’s right its the holidays which means the Boy Scouts of Troop 351 and Explorers of Club 351 have been selling Christmas Trees and the Venture Scouts of Crew 351 have been selling wreaths.

As soon as Christmas is complete, it will be time for the Cub Scouts of Pack 351 to begin Recycling Trees, Wreaths, & Garlands for their one and only fundraiser of the year!

The funds raised by our Scouts this year will be helping to send them to Summer Camp as well as other fun functions in which the Pack participates during the 2018 scouting year. In addition to helping send Cub Scouts to summer Camp, every single tree we collect will be repurposed and reused to help with fish habitat restoration in lakes and rivers.

The Pack 351 Tree Recycle Lot is at SE 45th & Powell Blvd in a corner of the St. Ignatius Parking Lot. It will be open weekdays 5-9pm and weekends 9am-9pm for drop-offs starting Wednesday, December 27th and going thru Saturday, January 13th.

Pick-ups can be scheduled for Saturdays and Sundays by calling the Pack’s Tree Recycle Pick-up hotline, Emailing the Tree Recycle address or going online and filling out the simple Pick-up form…pick-up’s will then occur between 9am-1pm as our little Cub Scouts and their drivers make the rounds.

You can get more information on our Tree Recycle Fundraiser here on our website. Our Pack 351 Tree Recycle hotline is (503) 912-4108 and our email is

                       and you can click here to Schedule your Tree Pick-up online

We thank you for your generous support of these hardworking, young Cub Scouts. We are so excited for this year’s Tree Recycle Lot, not only for working to help fund our fun Pack activities, but also to directly help in the restoration of fish habitats.

Scouting for Food…huge success

Pack 351 partnered with Venture Crew 351, Explorer Club 351 and Troop 351 to collect non-perishable food for St. Vincent DePaul and the food bank at St. Ignatius church the first Saturday in December.

Not only did we have a record 18 Cub Scouts attend/participate with collecting and sorting the food…but we also held collect a record 1100 lbs of food to replenish the Food Bank which serves those right here in our own community.

If you have any additional non-perishables to donate you can give anytime to St.Ignatius church, they are always accepting donations and are always in need!

Way to go 351 Scouts!!

Pack Service Project: Creston Park Litter Patrol 10/21/2017

While it was rainy and VERY wet outside, 12 scouts (representing 4 of the 5 dens), 4 Pack Leaders, 2 siblings and 8 parents attended this first official service project for the 2017-18 Scouting year.

We met at St. Ignatius at 10am, then walked over to Creston Park. Overall each scout walked about 1-mile if not a bit more than that. and worked for almost 1.5hrs collecting trash beautifying our nearest park.

11 bags of trash were collected (several were bursting full!), 3 needles were reported to the city and one illegal campsite was reported.

These scouts and their families should be very proud of their efforts…Pack 351 sure
