Chao Phu Huynh va Soi Con,

Eleven new scouts and their parents will join us this Sunday. Please introduce yourself and welcome them to our big LD Huong Viet family. These are parents and kids who will be your scouting companions the next ten year, so it is beneficial to know each other well.

There are a lot of TODOs for parents this week:

  1. BSA renewal forms and fees are due. Please use the instruction here to renew BSA membership for your cub scout:
    1. Annual Permission Slip (link)
    2. Parent Agreement Form (link)
    3. BSA Health Form (link)
    4. Annual fee from Sept- Sept: $170 ($33 BSA + $12 Council fee + $20 HPH + $105 dues for regular activities, camp, prizes). Checks payable to Lac Long treasurer: Jenny Lam. Write scout's name and unit on memo line.
    5. Optional: Uniform Order Form (link)
  2. Some Wolf badges were not sewn or ironed on yet. They have earned it. It should be displayed with pride, especially being a role model for new coming scout. It is our duty to build their confidence through little things like this.
  3. Some scouts still have not gotten the right Bear hat yet. Parents please make sure to buy new Bear hat for your son. We are teaching them respect to uniform and you want them to take advantage of this learning opportunity.
  4. At the same time at the scout store, be sure to get the new Bear book. Again, we are teaching them a valuable lesson of ‘being prepared’.
  5. Listen to Vietnamese songs we have been teaching. Please download and play with your son at home. We need your help. At least, these first 3 songs are required:
    1. Tap Hop Soi
    2. Vui Ca Len Nao
    3. Soi Con That That
    4. Luc Thu Vui Nay
    5. Others
  6. To help you keep track of the TODOs, we have a checklist here:
    1. New cubs scouts up to 2nd grade: Wolf Checklist.
    2. 3rd grade cub scouts: Bear Checklist.

On a separate note, we will have a required Parents Meeting on Sep/29 from 11:00 AM (Truong/Trang LD from other units are optional). This is a very important meeting with a lot of information, including receiving a Space Derby set. Please make sure to mark your calendar
