From Ryan Kellaher, Del-Mi District Director:
Good afternoon! If you have not already seen, there are some changes in the Lion program for this current program year. These are all changes that you have been asking for, and are changes that I think will strengthen your Lion programs. Most of them center around involvement within the rest of the Pack. There are no changes to the requirements. Here are some highlights:
- Pack meetings and activities will be open to Lion families who want to participate
- Pinewood Derby is open to Lions
- Fundraising will be allowed as a family option
- Uniform t-shirt won’t change, but families can buy button-down if they want
Click here for a Bryan on Scouting blog post outlining the changes.
There is also a more in-depth look at the changes in this PowerPoint presentation (link will download the presentation).

Please feel to contact your unit commissioner if you have any questions!
Yours in Scouting,
Ryan Kelleher | Del-Mi District Director
