ATTN Cub Leaders: Santa Arrival Parade on November 13th

In an effort to increase our presence in Staten Island we have been working with the Staten Island Mall. They have invited our cub scouts to be part of the Annual Santa Arrival Parade on November 13th, with the rain date being November 14th. Our cub scouts would march with the parade, in Class A uniforms. It would be great to get as many cub scouts to participate. Please reach out to Monica Rodriguez at 646-430-3974 or to confirm your attendance by TODAY, Tuesday November 11th. 

Scouts will start lining up at the HSBC bank entrance at 7:15pm. They will then march in front of the mall to the stage area, then pause and start counting down from 10-1 to light the Christmas Tree.

The entire event from start to finish will be 2 hours tops. 6:30 -8:30

Thank a veteran today: Our debt to these heroes can never be re-paid but our gratitude and respect must last forever.


“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.” – George Washington
