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.

Hello Pack 19,

Less than 3 days until the "Blast-off" of our new scout year!  Now on to this week's announcements:

  • Counting down to lauch night...
    • To keep the evening a bit more organized, the leaders and I have decided to break up the evening into a several stations and have about 10 scouts/siblings move through the various stations as a group with a leader and a Den Chief.  The tentative station ideas are:
      • Rocket station:  Build and launch rockets.  Only allowed three launches until moving to next station.  Returning scouts have a chance of winning a real model rocket if they can hit a target.
      • Scavenger Hunt station:  Go on a scavenger hunt to find hidden objects in the grove.  Those that find all the items win a prize.
      • Half Pipe Race:  Balance pieces of PVC pipes cut in half to race a rubber ball from the top to the bottom.  Be careful to keep all the pieces together!
    • While the kiddos are being occupied, the adults are going to be ushered to the various rooms in the church
      • New Scout Orientation:  For new scouts, an introduction to the pack and Q/A session for filling out forms.
      • For Returning Scouts:  Simply correct your current information if there are any problems and then pay dues
      • Popcorn Sign-up Station:  This is a must stop.  We still have several openings, including this weekend where we are selling in two  places at once.  There will also be pop-corn order forms for selling to friends, family, and door-to-door.
      • ScoutFest16 Sign-up:  Not too late to sign-up for ScoutFest16 Oct 7th-9th
      • Event Sign-up:  Sign-up for several upcoming events at the Sun Center in Trenton, like WWE, Monster Trucks, etc.
      • Pack 19 Swag Table:  Get some Pack 19 gear:  T-Shirts, back-packs, and sweatshirts will be offered for sale or order.
    • Needless to say, with all these stations and activities, I will need the help of anyone that can provide it.  I will have instructions sheets for each station  so you can easily jump-in and go.  The key is to HAVE FUN!
    • Attached are invitation templates you can print and give your young scouter(s) to hand to their friends and invite them to the blast-off night.  Simply print out the front and then flip the page over and re-feed to print out the back.  Have your scout fill their name in and give it to a friend.  If your scouter signs up one friend, he gets a free official Pack 19 back-pack bag, two friends gets a free Pack 19 T-shirt, three friends gets a Pack 19 sweatshirt.  Sign-up even more, you get all three!!!  It's always more fun joining scouts if you bring your friends.
  • I think we had a pretty successful first weekend selling popcorn.  At least a couple of boxes were emptied.  Thank you to all those that participated, but we are looking for more.  Still 4 more weekends, including this weekend where we are double booked at both Redner's and the Lowe's in Langhorne.  If you can help out in any way this weekend, please go here and sign-up.  If everyone does two 2 hour show-and-sells, we should be completely filled.  Feel free to also go door-to-door to sell as well.  Remember to have your scouter wear their Class A uniforms and make sure to always encourage them and congratulate them on a job well done even if they don't sell anything.
  • Due to ScoutFest16, the first den meetings are scheduled for Sept. 30th instead of Oct. 7th unless you are contacted by your den leader to that the original Oct. 7th date will stay.
  • Speaking of ScoutFest16, it's is just around the corner! The current price for a scout for the full 3 days is now $40.  If you wish to attend, please go here to register and pay at the council website (make sure to select a Pack and unit 19 so you will be grouped appropriately) and then come back to our website and go here to register so I can keep a roster of who will be attending.  There will be tons of activities and loads of fun!!!
  • Don't forget, our pack will be running the Launch a Rocket event at ScoutFest16.  I need volunteers to help for a few hour shifts.  If you plan to attend ScoutFest16 anyway, please also go here to sign-up for a 2 hour session to help with the rockets.  The more the merrier!
  • As always, positions, positions, positions.  This year and next year will be a transition year for virtually all of the pack leadership.  To my Bear and Wolf dens, please consider helping the pack grow by volunteering for a position.   In the near future, I will be putting together brief descriptions of the various positions that will become open, many of them are extremely simple to do but are really important to keep the pack going.
  • Be sure to check out the previous announcement regarding Marc Lewis's article in the Langhorne Ledger and our exciting trip to Cape May!  Check out the article at the Blast-Off night!
  • Finally, don't forget, you can sync the scout calendar with your Android or Apple device.  Follow the directions on the 'Calendar Sync' menu on the upper left hand side of the website.
That's it until next week...
 
Thanks,

John Papp

Back to School...Almost Back To Scouts

Posted on Sep 13 2016 - 10:35pm

Hello Pack 19,

Although school has started and we are almost staring scouts, it seems that summer wants to linger...not that I'm complaining as I prefer a 90 day to 3 feet of snow.  Any way, we are rapidly approaching our "BLAST OFF" recruitment night.  Now on to this week's announcements:

  • Our recruitment kick-off night is Friday Sept. 23rd starting at 6:30 p.m.
    • Look for invitation templates you can give your young scouters to hand to their friends and invite them to the blast-off night.  If your scouter signs up one friend, he gets a free official Pack 19 back-pack bag, two friends gets a free Pack 19 T-shirt, three friends gets a Pack 19 sweatshirt.  Sign-up even more, you get all three!!!  It's always more fun joining scouts if you bring your friends.
    • We are doing things a bit differently on blast-off night and will need a lot more volunteers.  We will be having stations, both for the kiddos and for the parents and we will need some parents to help with the stations.  More info will follow at next week's E-Blast.
    • Back to School Nights seemed like they were successful.  Our pack had a physical presence at both Hoover and Tawanka.  No one was allowed to be at BTSN at Pearl Buck so if you have a scouter going there, please try to get the word out.  Let me know if you need any more information or want me to contact anyone with more information
  • Popcorn sales have begun.  I just went the sign-up web page and I have to send out a big THANK YOU.  Many of you have signed up for multiple show-and sells and I really appreciate it.  There are still slots available, including this weekend.  If you can help out in any way this weekend, please go here and sign-up.  If everyone does two 2 hour show-and-sells, we should be completely filled.  Feel free to also go door-to-door to sell as well.  Remember to have your scouter wear their Class A uniforms and make sure to always encourage them and congratulate them on a job well done even if they don't sell anything.  If you have not received a popcorn order form yet, please let me know (pack19aerojp@gmail.com).
  • ScoutFest16 is just around the corner.  The early bird prices have passed, but if you want to spend an evening (or even 2 if you come Friday), the last day to register for the $35 per scout price is Sept. 18th.  After that, the price goes up to $40.  If you wish to attend, please go here to register and pay at the council website (make sure to select a Pack and unit 19 so you will be grouped appropriately) and then come back to our website and go here to register so I can keep a roster of who will be attending.  There will be tons of activities and loads of fun!!!
  • Speaking of ScoutFest16, the pack will be running the Launch a Rocket event at ScoutFest16.  I need volunteers to help for a few hour shifts.  If you plan to attend ScoutFest16 anyway, please also go here to sign-up for a 2 hour session to help with the rockets.
  • Positions, positions, positions.  This year and next year will be a transition year for virtually all of the pack leadership.  To my Bear and Wolf dens, please consider helping the pack grow by volunteering for a position.   In the near future, I will be putting together brief descriptions of the various positions that will become open, many of them are extremely simple to do but are really important to keep the pack going.

Recruitment Help & Sign-Ups

Posted on Sep 6 2016 - 10:23pm

Hello Pack 19,

The pack year is almost starting and I'm in desperate need of volunteers in addition to the regular announcements:

  • 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.  We have been given the go ahead to be at both Hoover and Tawanka but I need your help!!!
    • I need at least one or, even better, two people to help at Hoover.  I think it is more effective to have at least two people there, especially if that person or persons has a scout that currently goes to Hoover.  I will be at Hoover so all you have to do is show up.
    • I can't be at two places at once and because it seems Tawanka may have parking issues, I think it best to ask for help from those that are actually going to be at Tawanka for parent-teacher night.
    • We are recruiting from Buck but are not allowed to have a display table.  If you are a parent going to Buck for parent-teacher night, I have flyers that you can hand out to other parents you may meet to help recruit. 
    • Please, please, please, if you can help in any of these three places, even if for part of the time, send me an e-mail (pack19aerojp@gmail.com) and let me know.  I am also available tomorrow if you want to pick-up flyers to hand out.
  • Popcorn sales have begun.  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.  Some weekends are double booked so we REALLY need everyone's help.  If every scout would sign-up only twice for a 2 hour show and sell slot (4 hours per scout), all the slots would be filled.  When you see the Sign-Up Genius e-mail, please sign-up for two or more slots.
  • ScoutFest16 is just around the corner.  I would like to reserve space at the event ASAP so if you plan to attend, go here to sign-up so I can register a count.  The deadline for $30 per scout is this Saturday, Sept 10th.  After that it goes up to $35 per scout.  Adults stay at $25 for the 3 day event
  • The pack will be running the Launch a Rocket event at ScoutFest.  I need volunteers to help for a few hour shifts.  If you plan to attend, please also go here to help with the rockets.
  • The entire scout year has been entered into the calendar.  You can sync the scout calendar with your Android or Apple device.  Follow the directions on the 'Calendar Sync' menu on the upper left hand side of the website.
  • Coming soon...
    • University of Scouting
    • Much More...
That's it until next time...

John Papp

Fall Recruitment and Popcorn

Posted on Aug 30 2016 - 9:40pm

Hello Pack 19,

Only two announcements this week:  Popcorn Show & Sells and Fall Recruitment.  I need all hands on deck for both:

  • Popcorn sales have begun.  Everyone scout should have received an order form 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.  Some weekends may be double booked so we REALLY need everyone's help.  If every scout would sign-up only twice for a 2 hour show and sell slot (4 hours per scout), all the slots would be filled.  Sign-up Genius e-mail will be going out 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.  There may be issues to attend parent-teacher night at Pearl Buck and things might be really crazy at Tawanka, so we really need to get the word out in as many ways as possible.  Please post the date and time on any social media site you can find to spread the word.  I can get some graphics together if you need.  Look for flyers to come home with your students soon.
  • Coming soon...
    • Scout Fest 16
    • University of Scouting
    • Much More...
That's it until next time...

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...

John Papp
