Pack 273 Families:
Are you on Facebook?  Pack 273, and the council and district which we belong to all have pages that we can use to share the stories of our scouts (community service, eagle projects, campouts) and promote our fundraising events.  We will be able to submit stories and pictures to share with the larger local area scouting community.  Please like the following pages so you can see updates and we will be posting a photo and paragraph about what our unit is doing!
