Shaari Arthur, Pack 763 Committee Member, has been instrumental in ensuring Pack 763 runs efficiently and effectively. She has taken on numerous jobs within the Pack, including running our Pack's Website, organized our outing to Madame Tussard's Wax Museum and our outing to see the Harlem Globetrotters. Without her dedicated service, Pack 763 would undoubtedly not run as well as it does. Well done Shaari Arthur!

Joseph (Joe) Bonsby
Joseph (Joe) Bonsby is a synergist, collectively working with other parents to achieve goals. A first year Tiger Cub Scout Den Leader, Joe held individual Akelas (parents) accountable for the program at the scheduled den meetings. There was a clear and compelling reason to synergize. Much of the his den’s know how and experience are embedded in parents with Scouting experience, recreational skills, or hobbies. Joe understood that the outright sharing of responsibilities of den meetings may be a good way to capture the synergy and make Scouting fun with fewer resources.
Russ Chittum has been Committee Chairman for the last 2 years. Under his guidance, the Pack Popcorn sale increased from a few hundred dollars the year before he took over to more than $10,000 this year.

Jim DelVecchio has served Pack 436 as Committee Chairman, and he has been instrumental in the pack’s operations for as long as those of us now involved can remember.

His youngest son is crossing over to Boy Scouting, so Jim will be leaving the pack, but with some very big shoes to fill.

He serves as our Eagle Scout Advisor, a Merit Badge Counselor, and he designed and conducts our Leadership Training program.

This is a very key position in the Troop and Ed has made significant contributions to the health of the Troop while in this position. Besides the usual activities of a Treasurer, Ed was a key leader for reviving the Troop’s annual fundraiser after the fundraising source for many years came to an end.
