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.

Blue & Gold & Dessert

Posted on Feb 22 2017 - 8:39pm

Hello Pack 19,

Just a quick announcement about Blue & Gold this Saturday,

  • Although it isn't mandatory, it would be nice if everyone that can make it to Blue & Gold can register on the calendar events page so that we can make sure there will be enough tables and chairs setup.  Did I say chairs....yes!  We may need chairs so if you have a few extras, just in case we run out, please bring them.  Last year we needed about 10 - 12 extra chairs.
  • Cost remains same as last year with $5 per adult, $3 for child over 3. DON'T FORGET THAT SCOUTS ARE FREE!  Due to the limited ability of the online payment option, there is no way to include an extra adult as I've tagged all guests to be $3.  When you register, just put the discrepancy in the 'notes' section and everything will be squared up at Blue & Gold during check-in.
  • DESSERT...DESSERT...DESSERT!  As always, I usually forget one vital detail (even though this has been about my 7th or 8th B&G).  The main course is catered but the desserts are up to YOU!  Bring your favorite dessert to share, whether it's home-made or store-bought, so long as it's your favorite (I'm partial to COSTCO cakes myself).  Special kudos if it's scout themed.
  • Because there will be a Saturday afternoon mass at St. James, we are not allowed to park in their parking lot so find a place on the street or park back at LPC and walk.  It looks to be a very nice weekend for walking!
  • More announcements to follow at B&G!

Hope to see you Saturday!

Weekly Announcements

Posted on Feb 15 2017 - 8:15pm

Hello Pack 19,

Swamped at work so trying to be quick with this week's announcements,

  • Thanks to Marc Lewis and Mike Angelini for organizing the bowling event.  I couldn't believe how quickly 1-1/2 hours went by.  Everyone seemed like they were having fun.  Great Job!
  • February 25th:  Blue and Gold is just over a week away!  Have you registered!  Cost remains same as last year with $5 per adult, $3 for child over 3. DON'T FORGET THAT SCOUTS ARE FREE!  Register on the calendar events page.  Due to the limited ability of the online payment option, there is no way to include an extra adult as I've tagged all guests to be $3.  When you register, just put the discrepancy in the 'notes' section and everything will be squared up at Blue & Gold during check-in.  Also, we will more than likely need a few extra folding chairs so please use the Notes section to tell how many chairs you are willing to bring.  Last year we needed about 10 - 12 extra chairs.
  • March 4th:  Globetrotters!  Last year's pack trip to see the Globetrotters was a highlight for many.  We need at least 20 to get the group discount and we currently only have 10!  Please sign-up for this event by this Friday!
  • March 17th:  Circus, circus, circus.  Everyone should have received their tickets by now (thanks to Mike Angelini).  A pre-purchase food option is available where you spend $8 and get $10 food voucher.  Look for more information about the food voucher at B&G.  
  • Summer residency camp is rapidly approaching.  We are going to attempt to reserve space for July 27th - 30th.  Cost is $175 for scout and $80 for adult.  Financial aid is available on a "as needed" basis.  Please get in touch with me if you are interested.  Summer camp is a fun way to enjoy scouting while earning awards not normally available, like archery, BB-guns, and slingshots.
  • Finally, my ubiquitous plea for volunteer help.  With the influx of some great new volunteers, the good positions are going fast (ha ha ha ha).  But we still need a 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 (really important as we begin to plan summer camping events)
    • 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.

Until next week's announcements.

Snow!?

Posted on Feb 8 2017 - 10:28am

Hello Pack 19,

Just when you thought ol' Punxsutawney Phil was wrong, here comes a possible snow storm and 6 more weeks of winter.  Oh well, better now than during the Klondike Derby, or worse, during B&G.  Everyone keep safe if we do happen to get a couple of inches (or more, as I'm sure many scouts wish).  On to this week's announcements!

  • One way or another, there will be a band saw at the February 10th den meetings to allow anyone who doesn't have access to cutting tools to cut their derby car(s).  I will also have additional cars for sale at $4 at each of the den meetings.  The pack Pinewood Derby is coming up in your rear-view mirror on March 11th so start thinking fast thoughts to make a fast car!  Make sure you download the rules by following the Pinewood Derby link on the menu bar.  We are also going to make an attempt to judge the cars looks.  So even if it isn't the fastest, each scout will judge the cars in their own den and vote for the "Most Righteous Ride".
  • Thanks for those that came to the leader meeting this past Monday.  The pack has a leader meeting every first Monday of the month for planning and brainstorming ides.  We came up with some good ones for the March AoL crossover.  The meeting is open to everyone in the pack so think about joining us.  It's a good way to see what is involved in being a leader in the pack!
  • February 12th:  A bowling...here are the notes from Marc Lewis.
    • We can bowl from 1:30pm - 3:00pm. Please try to arrive at least 20 minutes early, so you have time to try on shoes, and select a ball.

    •  

      There are a limited number of ball ramps available. While light bowling balls are available for kids (as light as 6 pounds), if you have children that want to use a ramp, please let me know by 7:30 pm Wednesday evening, so that we can assign you to a lane with a ramp. Also lane bumpers will be down on all lanes, to prevent gutter balls.
    • The fee includes 1 pizza and 1 pitcher of soda per lane. The pizza will be cut into 10 slices and shared by 5 bowlers. Additional pizza is available for purchase, as well as other food at the grill. Water will also be provided.
    • To make things go as smooth as possible, we will pre-assign everyone to lanes. Adults will bowl with their kids and we'll try our best to have members of the same Den near each other.
    • The address is 8815 New Falls Road, Levittown. Phone number is 215-943-5610. If you have any problems the day of the event, and need to get in touch with me, my phone number is 732-599-8600.
  • February 25th:  The annual Blue & Gold pack meeting coming up fast.  It's just next week 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.  Due to the limited ability of the online payment option, there is no way to include an extra adult as I've tagged all guests to be $3.  When you register, just put the discrepancy in the 'notes' section and everything will be squared up at Blue & Gold during check-in.
  • March 4th:  Globetrotters!  Last year's pack trip to see the Globetrotters was a highlight for many.  We need at least 20 to get the group discount so please sign-up for this event if you are interested.
  • March 17th:  Circus, circus, circus.  A pre-purchase food option is available where you spend $8 and get $10 food voucher.  Look for more information about the food voucher at B&G.  Because of the popularity of the event, seats filled up fast and because there were several waves of sign-ups, it was impossible to have the entire pack sit as one group.  Mike Angelini is doing his best to organize the tickets based on purchase time so tickets for the event will be e-mailed to everyone soon.  
  • Summer residency camp is rapidly approaching.  We are going to attempt to reserve space for July 27th - 30th.  Cost is $175 for scout and $80 for adult.  Financial aid is available on a "as needed" basis.  Please get in touch with me if you are interested.  Summer camp is a fun way to enjoy scouting while earning awards not normally available, like archery, BB-guns, and slingshots.
  • Finally, my ubiquitous plea for volunteer help.  With the influx of some great new volunteers, the good positions are going fast (ha ha ha ha).  But we still need a 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.

February Already!?

Posted on Feb 1 2017 - 9:37am

Hello Pack 19,

Is it February already?  Only two more months at our Arrow of Light rank will be crossing over.  Time to start thinking of summer events.  On to this week's announcements!

  • Thank you to our Arrow of Light den for putting on yet another successful carnival pack meeting.  This was their last pack meeting and they really pulled out all the stops.  Next year, another rank will take over the January meeting and put their own spin on things.
  • Welcome Jennifer Capaldi, our new Treasurer!  She has graciously volunteered to take over Treasurer duties from Rachel as Rachel will be crossing over with her son, Chase, in March.  I'm still looking for a Committee Chair and then I'll have the minimum required leaders to have a pack...Yay!  Please consider volunteering in the pack.  It's the best way to make an immediate impact on the pack and is a real example to your young scouter.
  • Although not official, the plan is to have a band saw at the February 10th den meetings to allow anyone who doesn't have access to cutting tools to cut their derby car(s).  I will also have additional cars for sale at $4 at each of the den meetings.  The pack Pinewood Derby is coming up fast on March 11th so start thinking fast thoughts to make a fast car!
  • February 5th:  The monthly leader meeting is at 7:00 at LPC.  Although it is called a leader meeting, it is open to all members of the pack.  Come and join us to see how planning occurs and feel free to offer suggestions.  It's also a good way to see what is involved in being a leader in the pack!
  • February 12th:  A bowling event has been reserved for February 12th at Levittown Lanes.  Cost is $10 which includes  pizza and shoe rental.
  • 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.  Due to the limited ability of the online payment option, there is no way to include an extra adult as I've tagged all guests to be $3.  When you register, just put the discrepancy in the 'notes' section and everything will be squared up at Blue & Gold during check-in.
  • March 4th:  Globetrotters!  Last year's pack trip to see the Globetrotters was a highlight for many.  We need at least 20 to get the group discount so please sign-up for this event if you are interested
  • March 17th:  Circus, circus, circus.  This event is closed due to the extremely limited availability of tickets.  A pre-purchase food option is available so look for more information on that as the event comes closer.  Tickets for the event will be e-mailed to everyone as soon as Mike Angelini has a chance to catch his breath.
  • Summer camp is rapidly approaching and the pack leadership is determining when to go to Camp Musser.  I do know that overnight scout camping doesn't start until July 24th and only goes for 3 weeks.  From past tradition, the pack as typically overnighted the last half of the first week.  Look for more news on this in the upcoming weeks.
  • Finally, my ubiquitous plea for volunteer help.  With the influx of some great new volunteers, the good positions are going fast (ha ha ha ha).  But we still need a 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.

This Week...Carnival

Posted on Jan 24 2017 - 9:22pm

Hello Pack 19,

The big event for the week is the monthly pack meeting.  The Arrow of Light rank will regale us with CARNIVAL!  This weeks announcements  

  • The zoo overnight this pass weekend was a huge success.  It was interesting to see the animals at night and in the morning when they were being fed.  I'm sure many pictures of the even have been posted on the pack Facebook page.
  • January 27th:  Along with CARNIVAL will be awards and some pinewood derby hints and tips.  I will have pinewood derby cars for all those scouts that weren't able to make it to the December pack meeting and will also have cars for sale to adults and siblings as we do have a race for them as well.
  • February 12th:  A bowling event has been reserved for February 12th at Levittown Lanes.  Cost is $10 and that includes some pizza and shoe rental.  The time has changed slightly from before, starting at 1:30 and going until 3:00 p.m.
  • 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
  • March 4th:  Globetrotters!  Last year's pack trip to see the Globetrotters was a highlight for many.  It was a close game, but after a couple of 4 pointers in a row, the Globetrotters were able to pull away and win the game.  Afterwards, there is a chance to get signatures from all the members.  Good wholesome fun.  Register on our website to be assured tickets for the event
  • March 17th:  Unfortunately, due to the circus ceasing operation in May, this event has been extremely popular.  I am no longer taking any requests for more tickets as acceptable locations have dwindling.  As it is, we are spread across 2 sections due to ticket purchases over multiple days.  If you couldn't make it for scout night, there are still several other opportunities to see it on your own.
  • Summer camp is rapidly approaching and the pack leadership is determining when to go to Camp Musser.  I do know that overnight scout camping doesn't start until July 24th and only goes for 3 weeks.  From past tradition, the pack as typically overnighted the last half of the first week.  Look for more news on this in the upcoming weeks.
  • 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

  • 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.

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

See you at the Carnival.
