50yr Blue & Gold Banquet Cubscout Pack 349

Northwest High School 8204 Crown Point Ave, Omaha, NE
We will be celebrating 50 years as a Pack in February 2013.
The Blue and Gold Banquet is a highlight of the year bringing together pack families for dinner and fun celebrating the "birthday of Cub Scouting." It's called "Blue and Gold" because those are the Cub Scout colors. Blue represents truth and loyalty, Gold represents good cheer, happiness, and helping others. The purpose of the Banquet is to mark the organization of the Boy Scouts of America in February 1910 Cub Scouts were founded in 1930 - and to celebrate the February 22, 1857 birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts.

Mentoring positively impacts school success, teen pregnancy rates, criminal acts and violent behavior. For residents at the Omaha Home for Boys, being mentored is a chance for a youth to receive individual attention from a caring adult and, most importantly, a chance to just have fun.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor for The Omaha Home for Boys, please call the Omaha Home for Boys at 402-457-7182 or email Kristi Lesley at
