Welcome !

WELCOME TO CUB SCOUT PACK 19

Our fall membership 'blast-off' is scheduled for Sept. 26th starting at 6:30 p.m. in the cabin and parking lot across from Langhorne Presbyterian Church

If you are in 1st through 5th grade, come and join us for fun and excitement!

Build and decorate your very own paper rocket then launch it yourself!

See if you can go the farthest or be the most accurate!

Remember...Cub Scouting is fun with a purpose!

And Don't forget to bring your parent to sign you up!

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.

Den meetings are the 1st and 2nd Friday of each month starting at 7:00 p.m.

Pack meetings are the 4th Friday starting at 7:00 p.m.

All events take place at Langhorne Presbyterian Church unless otherwise specified.

For more information please contact John Papp at pack19aerojp@gmail.com

Thank You Troop 19

A fun time was had by all at this past weekend’s FOP lodge overnight.  Despite the rain, everyone was in good spirits.  Thanks to Hugh Green, Chuck Pinkerton, and all those boy scouts of Troop 19 the event was a great success.  After a quick game of kick-ball with the boy scouts, volunteer firefighters from the Lingohickon Fire Department took time out of their busy schedule to come over and talk about camp fire safety and give out a cool reflector and light.  Then the cubs got to shoot water out of the hose.  Everyone learned how to cook foil packs and when the weather started to clear, we put together and launched several model rockets.  It was even clear enough during the evening to do some star gazing.  We were able to see the Big Dipper, find the North Star, and see the Milky Way galaxy.  Even M13 was visible in Hercules although I didn’t have much luck trying to locate the Andromeda galaxy and the major planets had already set or hadn’t risen yet.  I hope that Troop 19 will continue to help out at this event so it can be even bigger and better next year.

Webelos Weekend

Posted on Sep 12 2014 - 1:05pm

Playwicki district has announced Webelos (Mad Scientist) Weekend on Oct. 11-12 at the Middletown Grange Fairgrounds (same place as BucksJam).  Cost is $12 per person and includes loads of activities.  Scouts will complete all requirements for both Scientist and Outdoorsman Webelos pins, as well as the Scientist belt loop (remember, Outdoorsman is required for the Arrow of Light award).  I highly recommend this event for any Webelos that have not earned these pins!

More details on the event calendar.

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements

Posted on Sep 9 2014 - 9:52pm

Just a few announcements for this week:

  • FOP Lodge overnight is scheduled for this Saturday, Sept. 13th, 3:00 p.m. through Sunday, Sept 14th 10:00 a.m.  Please sign-up on our calendar so I can get an idea how many will be in attendance for food purposes.  I think we're going to foil pack as the dinner but will need side dishes again.  There is access to electricity in case anyone wants to bring crockpot compatible items.  So when you sign-up, please provide info on the side dish you are going to bring.  Troop 19 has been kind enough to offer their help and I have to say they have been great.  The boy scouts will help setup tents and will also be there to teach the cubs important skills and run some events.  I plan on launching some rockets and I'll have my telescope for some star gazing at night.  There may be some surprises too...perhaps a visit from a local fire company or even tractor or two for a hay ride.  So sign-up now!
  • Reminder...Popcorn show & sells have begun!!!  The weekend show and sells are slowly starting to fill up but there are still a lot of weekends that are empty.  Please check out the calendar for links to sign-up.  We need at least two scouts for each session with a maximum of three.  Remember, if we meet the pack goal of $14,000, I'll shave my head at the awards pack meeting.  So get out there and sell, sell, sell!
  • Karen Sayles is doing better but is still recovering.  Getting updates from her friends every once in a while.  We may be tasked with cooking food for her family for a week.  Waiting to hear if and when.  Keep her in your prayers for a speedy recovery.
  • Remember to talk up our recruitment night set for Sept. 26th starting at 6:30 p.m.  If we gain enough new members, council will pay for all our pine wood derby cars for the year.  I have yard signs and flyers to hand out or put in stores/shops/restaurants if you need them.  Just contact me at pack19aerojp@gmail.com or 215.499.4058.

See you this weekend!

Welcome to a New Scout Year!

Posted on Sep 2 2014 - 5:15pm

Although den meetings haven't started and the pack kick-off is still a few weeks away, the new year for Pack 19 has begun.  Several important announcements:

  • Popcorn show & sells have begun!!!  Unlike last year, the show & sells have started almost a month earlier so there are two show and sells scheduled for late September and all of the October weekends.  Check out the calendar for links to sign-up.  We need at least two scouts for each session with a maximum of three.  Everyone should have received an order form in the mail so scouts can begin selling door to door as well.  Just remember to go with an adult and wear your uniform and keep in mind that the scout should be selling the popcorn, not the adult.  Although the cost for the popcorn is more than at a store, remember to stress that 75% of the proceeds go to scouting.  As for awards, besides the regular pie in the face of a leader for top sellers, I will be shaving my head if we meet the pack goal of $14,000.  Last year we sold almost $13,000 so the new goal is not out of reach.  So get out there and sell, sell, sell!
  • FOP Lodge overnight is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 13th, 3:00 p.m. through Sunday, Sept 14th 10:00 a.m.  Please sign-up on our calendar so I can get an idea how many will be in attendance for food purposes.
  • Karen Sayles is doing better but is still recovering.  Getting updates from her friends every once in a while.  We may be tasked with cooking food for her family for a week.  Waiting to hear if and when.  Keep her in your prayers for a speedy recovery.
  • Jeff Clendening is recovering from an infection but has come down with phlebitis, an inflamation of the veins, that is making it painful for him to walk.  Keep him in your prayers as well for a speedy recovery.
  • Remember to talk up our recruitment night set for Sept. 26th starting at 6:30 p.m.  If we gain enough new members, council will pay for all our pine wood derby cars for the year.  I have yard signs and flyers to hand out or put in stores/shops/restaurants if you need them.  Just contact me at pack19aerojp@gmail.com or 215.499.4058.
  • As always, I'm looking for volunteers to help the pack.  We are still in need of a Committee Chair and it would be nice to have an assistant committee chair as well.  The job involves whatever you feel like putting into the pack.  Remember, the more people we have helping, the more the scouts will get out of their cub-scout experience and the more fun they will have.

That's about it for this week.  If you have any other activities, ideas, or comments, just shoot them my way.
