The Pack leadership as well as Den leaders will frequently send emails to parents. It is a good practice to make sure emails sent from these addresses are not caught by your Spam mail filter:
Scoutbook.DoNotReply@scouting.org (mails sent via Scoutbook)
The pack is also utilizing Google Groups, where all Pack parents are part of parents [at] scoutpack195nj [dot] com, and all leaders are part of leaders [at] scoutpack195nj [dot] com email group. Please ensure emails sent to these groups are not ending up in your Spam folder.
