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.

Important Upcoming Pack Events

Posted on Jan 17 2017 - 10:10pm

Hello Pack 19,

After spending 7 out of the last 8 days working on scouts, I think I could use a break this week so I'll try to keep these announcements short and sweet:  

  • March 17th:  IMPORTANT!!!  The Ringling Bros, Barnam & Bailey circus will be ceasing operations after 146 years in May which makes the upcoming event in March one of the last shows!  We need to secure tickets ASAP, so I've set an immediate deadline for this Friday morning for anyone that registers and pays on the website.  For those people, I will attempt to purchase tickets Friday afternoon.  There are no guarantees and you will be reimbursed if there are no tickets left.  I will attempt to purchase tickets for anyone registering and paying after this Friday morning but the longer you wait, the less chance there are tickets available.  Scout specific tickets will not be available after January 27th! 
  • January 27th:  Keep it in your calendar...the pack meeting, or 'Carnival', is set for January 27th!
  • February 12th:  A bowling event has been reserved for February 12th at Levittown Lanes.  Cost is $9 and that includes some pizza for food.  Go to the calendar to sign up
  • February 25th:  The annual Blue & Gold pack meeting is Saturday, February 25th starting at 4:00 p.m and going until 7:00 p.m.  This is our pack's celebration of the birth of scouting.  Food will be catered and there will be a DJ for music and games.  Den baskets will be raffled off and every scout will go home with a special door prize.  Cost remains same as last year with $5 per adult, $3 for child over 3.  SCOUTS ARE FREE!  Register on the calendar events page
  • The option to go to see the Globetrotters on March 4th is still open.  Our Indoor Activities Chair, Mike Angelini will be setting up the event soon.
  • Congratulations to our 2 Arrow of Light and 1 Webelos sleds who competed in last weekends Klondike Derby.  Look for scores in early February!
  • The zoo overnight is officially closed.   If you have registered but not paid, you are not currently on the roster of those attending.  There might be some space for walk-ups but you will take your chances.  Look for an e-mail giving additional information about what to expect when attending the event.
  • Summer camp is rapidly approaching.  Camp Musser has decided to completely change the residency camp schedule with overnight scouting events not starting until July 24th and only going for 3 weeks instead of 4.  Look for more news on this at the next pack meeting.
  • Finally, my ubiquitous plea for volunteer help.  Make it a New Year's Resolution to volunteer!  With the influx of some great new volunteers, the good positions are going fast (ha ha ha ha).  But we still need a Treasurer, Committee Chair, and Assistant Cubmaster.  The more people who help, the smoother things go and you will be rewarded in ways you can't imagine.  I will have descriptions of each of the openings at the pack meeting so check it out!  Openings include:
    • Outdoor activities chair
    • Cubmaster
    • Membership and Marketing
    • More Popcorn Kernels
    • Whatever position you would like to volunteer for....
  • Don't forget to check the calendar for all schedules.  As a reminder, you may have to click on the event to see the notes section.

See you at the Carnival.

Hello Pack 19,
 
Lydia Goldberg just received this nice "Thank You" from Attleboro for our carolling in December.  Thought I would forward it to everyone.  We are also getting a card that you can see at the January Pack Meeting.

Klondike, Carnival, Summer Camp...Oh My!

Posted on Jan 11 2017 - 11:52am

Hello Pack 19,

We are back in the swing of scouting after the holiday break and off to a great new year.  Lots of things coming up so let's get to the announcements for the week. 

  • January 14th:  Attention Webelos and Arrow of Light dens!  Klondike is set for this Saturday!  It looks like it will live up to its name with rather chilly 30 degree weather and the possibility of snow Saturday evening.  I'm going to have a last minute orientation session for any Webelos and Arrow of Light members who are going on the Klondike to go over how the sleds work, basic fire starting, and some general first aid details.
  • January 21st - 22nd:  Want to go to the zoo!.  I have been informed that the zoo overnight is not at capacity and they are willing to take a few last minute sign-ups.  If you missed our deadline and still want to go, please contact me ASAP so I can get you in for the overnight!
  • January 27th:  Keep it in your calendar...the pack meeting, or 'Carnival', is set for January 27th!
  • There is an option to go to see the Globetrotters on March 4th and/or the Ringling Brothers Circus on March 18th.  Mike Angelini has set up a survey to gauge responses on whether to go to one or both.  Please follow this link to make your vote.  All I would ask is that you only vote if you do intend to go to the events.  The pack went to see the Globetrotters last year and I've heard great things about the circus so both look to be great fun.
  • February 12th:  A bowling event has been reserved for February 12th at Levittown Lanes.  Cost is $9 and that includes some pizza for food.  Go to the calendar to sign up
  • February 25th:  The annual Blue & Gold pack meeting is Saturday, February 25th starting at 4:00 p.m and going until 7:00 p.m.  This is our pack's celebration of the birth of scouting.  Food will be catered and there will be a DJ for music and games.  Den baskets will be raffled off and every scout will go home with a special door prize.  Cost remains same as last year with $5 per adult, $3 for child over 3.  SCOUTS ARE FREE!  Register on the calendar events page
  • Summer camp is rapidly approaching.  Unfortunately, last week's E-blast about the dates was based on prior years.  Camp Musser has decided to completely change the residency camp schedule with overnight scouting events not starting until July 24th and only going for 3 weeks instead of 4.  The leadership is in discussion whether to even go to a summer residency camp or plan overnight events separately and go to one of the closer day camps.  Look for more news on this at the next pack meeting.
  • Finally, my ubiquitous plea for volunteer help.  Make it a New Year's Resolution to volunteer!  With the influx of some great new volunteers, the good positions are going fast (ha ha ha ha).  But we still need a Treasurer, Committee Chair, and Assistant Cubmaster.  The more people who help, the smoother things go and you will be rewarded in ways you can't imagine.  I will have descriptions of each of the openings at the pack meeting so check it out!  Openings include:

See you at the next den meeting.

January Events

Posted on Jan 3 2017 - 8:55pm

Hello and Happy New Year Pack 19,

It may be cold.  It may be dreary.  But there are lots of activities planned for January:

  • The Zoo overnight is officially full.  If you have not paid or contacted me that you are attending, you have been dropped.  There may be space available but no guarantees past today.  Look for more information about the overnight soon.
  • Woohoo!  14 Webelos and Arrow of Light scouts for Klondike.  Last day to sign-up is Wednesday so get off that fence and register.  Four scouts showed up to Troop 82's Klondike prep night this past Monday and the troop has invited anyone else interested to for more training next Monday.  Contact me if you are interested.  Otherwise, I'm sure there will be plenty of additional prep in the den meetings.
  • Den meetings are this Friday and next Friday.  Then get ready for 'Carnival' on January 27th!
  • Over 20 people went to Monster Jam.  Although I could not make it, I heard it was a good time.  Hopefully everyone who went can still hear as well.  The next events at the Sun Center will be in March with the Barnum & Bailey Circus as well as the Harlem Globetrotters.  More info on these events soon.
  • Summer camp is rapidly approaching.  The pack will be attending the last half of the first week which will be the week after the 4th of July.  More info to be posted soon!
  • Finally, my ubiquitous plea for volunteer help.  Make it a New Year's Resolution to volunteer!  With the influx of some great new volunteers, the good positions are going fast (ha ha ha ha).  But we still need a Treasurer, Committee Chair, and Assistant Cubmaster.  The more people who help, the smoother things go and you will be rewarded in ways you can't imagine.  I will have descriptions of each of the openings at the pack meeting so check it out!  Openings include:

See you at the den meetings.

Happy New Year...Don't Forget the Klondike

Posted on Dec 27 2016 - 12:30pm

Hello Pack 19,

Wishing all of you a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year.  Just a few expedited announcements as I'm sure everyone is enjoying the festivities:

  • LAST REMINDER:  The $60 Zoo payment is due now.  Please pay on the website as the full amount is due in a few days.  Anyone that hasn't paid by Dec. 23rd will be removed from the list unless you contact me before hand to work out payment.  If anyone would like to attend but is in need of financial help, please contact me personally.  I'm sure we can work something out.
  • So far only 3 scouts have signed up for Klondike Derby.  For those that attended last year, the program will be completely different in a sense that there will be no mixing with boy scouts and the derby challenges will be more cub scout related.  This is a great opportunity for these older scouts to see what it will be like as a boy scout, working as a team in a small group with little to no adult input.  Plus , it's always loads of fun especially competing against other packs.  I must register all scouts attending by Jan 5th or else incur a 50% late fee.  As the  pack is already covering 50% of the cost ($5 instead of $10) please sign-up now not only so I can get a count but also to figure out how many sleds and supplies will be required.
  • Finally, my ubiquitous plea for volunteer help.  Make it a New Year's Resolution to volunteer!  With the influx of some great new volunteers, the good positions are going fast (ha ha ha ha).  But we still need a Treasurer, Committee Chair, and Assistant Cubmaster.  The more people who help, the smoother things go and you will be rewarded in ways you can't imagine.  I will have descriptions of each of the openings at the pack meeting so check it out!  Openings include:
    • Outdoor activities chair
    • Cubmaster
    • Membership and Marketing
    • More Popcorn Kernels
    • Whatever position you would like to volunteer for....
  • Don't forget to check the calendar for all schedules.  As a reminder, you may have to click on the event to see the notes section.

Enjoy the Holidays.

Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas

Posted on Dec 20 2016 - 9:31pm

Hello Pack 19,

Wishing everyone a Happy Hanukkah and a ver Merry Christmas.  Take a moment to relax during the holiday season and enjoy family and friends.  Just a few important announcements:

  • Thanks everyone for a great pack meeting this past Friday.  Can you tell two teachers planned it?  I don't think I've ever seen it so organized.  Thank you to the Webelos den and Lydia G. and Rebecca R. for their leadership role.   Also, kudos to Lydia G. for setting up our caroling at Attleboro.  It was great fun and those in attendance really appreciated our effort and cards.
  • DON'T FORGET:  The $60 Zoo payment is due now.  Please pay on the website as the full amount is due in a few days.  Anyone that hasn't paid by Dec. 23rd will be removed from the list unless you contact me before hand to work out payment.  If anyone would like to attend but is in need of financial help, please contact me personally.  I'm sure we can work something out.
  • Klondike Derby is rapidly approaching for Webelos and Arrow of Light members.  This is a great opportunity for these older scouts to see what it will be like as a boy scout, working as a team in a small group with little to know adult input.  Plus , it's always loads of fun especially competing against other packs.  Please register by Dec. 30th.  Last year we had enough for two sleds and because of the size of the two dens, I'm sure we can easily get 10 - 16 scouts.
  • All scouts should have received a pinewood derby car from Santa at the last pack meeting.  If you forgot it or wasn't able to attend, no worries.  I will have the cars at the next den meeting.  The pack pinewood derby is in March and I will have official rules posted on the website so don't get over-anxious and start working on them yet!  There's plenty of time.  The pack also has a parent/sibling race so I will have extra cars for purchase.  I think I may actually make a car this year.
  • With the influx of some great new volunteers, the good positions are going fast (ha ha ha ha).  But we still need a Treasurer, Committee Chair, and Assistant Cubmaster.  The more people who help, the smoother things go and you will be rewarded in ways you can't imagine.  I will have descriptions of each of the openings at the pack meeting so check it out!  Openings include:
    • Outdoor activities chair
    • Cubmaster
    • Membership and Marketing
    • More Popcorn Kernels
    • Whatever position you would like to volunteer for....
  • Don't forget to check the calendar for all schedules.  As a reminder, you may have to click on the event to see the notes section.

Enjoy the Holidays.
