Boys can begin their Cub Scouting experience in 1st grade, and continue through 5th grade.  Our pack is active all year long and encourages family participation in all Pack activities and events. Without parental volunteers to assist with our pack activities, the Pack 19 leadership could not put together a successful and memorable Cub Scout program for our boys.

Welcome to a New Scout Year

Posted on Aug 23 2016 - 11:27pm

Hello Pack 19,

Our first leader meeting under our belts and the year virtually planned, welcome to a new scout year.  Here are the announcements for this week.

  • Popcorn sales have begun.  Everyone scout should have received an orderform that they can start selling to friends, family, and door to door.  If selling door to door, remember to be courteous and always wear your class A uniforms.  Remember to thank everyone no matter if they purchase popcorn or not.  Show and sells will begin on the weekend of Sept 17th and 18th at the Lowe's on Horizon Blvd next to the Walmart and continue for every weekend up to the end of October.  This is our major fund raiser for the year and helps to fund all the things we do throughout the year so everyone's help is greatly appreciated.  The offer still stands...if the pack sells more than $10,000 dollars, I'll shave my head at the November pack meeting.  If every scout would sign-up only twice for a 2 hour show and sell slot, all the slots would be filled.  Look for more information to help through Sign-up Genious soon!
  • Our recruitment kick-off night is Friday Sept. 23rd starting at 6:30 p.m.  Because  of the closing of Oliver Heckman, we want to make sure that we reach as many potential scouts out there as possible.  Look for an e-mail for an 'Invite a Friend' invitation that you can print out and have your scout take to school to bring a friend.  If a scout signs up a friend, they will get a free Pack 19 T-shirt or backpack, sign-up two friends, get a free Pack 19 T-shirt and backpack, sign-up three friends, get a free Pack 19 sweatshirt.
  • Scout Fest '16 is just around the corner on Oct. 7 - 9.  If you register and pay via PayPal before August 31st, the cost is $30 per child and $25 per adult for the entire  event.  After the 31st, the cost goes up to $35 per child but stays $25 for adults.  There will be hundreds of activities for the scouts, including entertainment in the evening.  This is a family camping event, so everyone is invited.  Our pack as volunteered to run the air rockets as an activity so I will also need some help from you to run the event.  I would like to have everyone attending sign-up for at least an hour to help that day.  All the event details are on the pack calendar.
  • Because of Scout Fest this year, the FOP lodge family camping has been cancelled.
  • This year's winter overnight will be at the Philadelphia Zoo.  The date has not been set but it will be some time in January and will occur over a Sat-Sun and cost $60.
  • There will be a lot of turnover with the pack this year due to the AoL rank cross-over.  So, we will be needing new people for the following pack leadership position.  This pack, as with all scouting activities, relies on the generosity of volunteers.  Can you be one?
    • Committee Chair - Necessary to be a pack
    • Treasurer - Necessary to be a pack
    • Summer Residency Camp Coordinator
    • Kitchen and Supplies
    • Assistant Cubmaster
That's it until next time...
 
Thanks,

John Papp

Cape May Coast Guard Camping

Posted on Aug 16 2016 - 10:56pm

Hello Pack 19,

 
Just a few announcements for this week...
 
  • Don't forget that our kick-off recruitment event is scheduled for September 23rd, 6:30 p.m.  Again, this is pretty much our only recruitment event for the year, so if you know of any family or friends who have boys from 1st to 5th grade, pass the word about th kick-off night.
  • The Cape May camping trip is this weekend.  Marc has done a great job planning so lets all give him a big hand.  I plan to be at the camp site on Friday night and stay until Sunday morning.  I also plan to bring some firewood that was left over from Camp Hart as well as some of the candy bars for s'mores but I'm sending out a request for some marshmallows and graham crackers.  It looks like it might be good weather but it's always a good idea to bring rain gear.  Don't forget bug spray as well.  I recommend at least 25% DEET or equivalent.  Look for Marc to send out any last minute details but there should be enough information on the events page.  Look forward to seeing you there.
That's it until next time...
 
Thanks,

John Papp

Launch Date is Set

Posted on Aug 9 2016 - 10:26pm

Hello Pack 19,

Mark your calendars, tell your friends...our launch date has been set!.  September 23rd, 6:30 p.m. is our fall recruitment blast-off.  As the date gets closer, I'll be sending out more information about help needed and some new activities I have been thinking of just to switch things up a bit.  This is pretty much our only recruitment event for the year, so if you know of any family or friends who have boys from 1st to 5th grade, pass the word about the kick-off night.  I also have flyers if anyone knows of places to post them, like local business, super markets, restaurants, etc.
 
As for our next event, the Cape May camping trip, Marc Lewis will be sending out additional information as soon as he comes back from vacation.
 
That's it until next time...
 
Thanks,

John Papp

National Night Out

Posted on Aug 1 2016 - 9:02pm

Hello Pack 19,

Lydia Goldberg has graciously volunteered to setup a table at the National Night Out event tomorrow at the Middletown Township building.  The event goes from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and will be filled with various fun activities geared for all ages.  It will be a great place to recruit future scouts from our neighborhood.  The organizers recommended that each table have some type of activity or game and Lydia is going to do cup stacking.  That means that at least two people are necessary, one to run the game and another to answer any questions, since we are recruiting.  So Lydia needs some help, preferably some leaders, although anyone who would like to help the pack grow is more than welcome to contact her at squidia@verizon.net.   Any help, no matter how small, would be much appreciated.
 
Thanks in advance,

John Papp

Trenton Thunder Overnight

Posted on Jul 28 2016 - 10:49am

Hello Pack 19,

For those going on the Trenton Thunder overnight tomorrow, just a few things:
  1. Stay hydrated.  It's going to be cooler than in the past days but still pretty hot.
  2. There is a chance for thunderstorms so be sure to bring rain gear (poncho's)
  3. The overnight is optional but if you intend to stay and watch the movie, leave all you gear in the car.  They will clear the stadium and ask everyone who is staying overnight to re-enter near the right field gates.  You can go and get your stuff then.
  4. I don't think bugs are that bad but you may want to bring bug spray just in case
  5. Wear your Class-B (T-Shirt).

Finally, there are still a lot of tickets left so if you want to bring extra people, let me know.  I or someone will be handing out the tickets at the gate.  Game starts at 7:00 p.m. so if you can get there around 6:30 or so to get your tickets, that would be great.

Hopefully the game won't go to 15 innings like it did last year.

See you tomorrow!

Middletown National Night Out

Posted on Jul 28 2016 - 10:41am

On Tuesday, August 2nd the Middletown Police Department will host a National Night Out event 6-8 PM. 

National Night Out is an event to bring the community, businesses and the police department together. It is so important to the Middletown Township Police to continually create bonds with those we serve. We ask that you come out to meet more neighbors, business owners, community leaders and the emergency services workers. There will be music, food, vendors and lots of games and activities for people of all ages to get involved in. Could there possibly be a more important time for an event like this? We truly hope we see YOU there! 

Pack 19 will have their recruitment table there and were asked to help serve popcorn for the Middletown Police department.  Look for a sign up email!  Hope to see everyone there!
