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.

Memorial Day Parade

Posted on May 29 2016 - 3:02pm

Hello Pack 19,

A happy Memorial Day weekend to everyone!  Unfortunately tropical depression Bonnie is going to make a mess of the parade tomorrow morning.  I was unable to confirm if the parade was cancelled or not, but cannot delay making a decision whether to participate tomorrow any longer.  Because the weather forecast is calling for 80-100% heavy rain tomorrow morning between 8 AM and 1 PM, we will not march in the parade this year.  I suspect they will cancel or postpone the parade due to the amount of rain we are expecting.   

Please enjoy your memorial day and make sure to go out of your way to thank a current or previous member of our military for helping preserve our way of live in this great country of ours.

Memorial Day Parade Info

Posted on May 25 2016 - 5:47pm

Hello Pack 19,

Pack 19 traditionally marches in the Langhorne Memorial Day Parade to show our respect and gratitude for our current and past veterans.   I'm going to be out of town this year so our intrepid Assistant Scoutmaster, Kevin Shaffer, will be organizing this event.  The parade officially begins at 9:00 a.m. this coming Monday, so it would be best if few leaders showed up around 8:00 a.m. to find and reserve our spot in the parade order and for the remaining scouts who wish to march to be there no later than 8:45 a.m.  The pack typically lines up near the bank at the corner of Bellevue and Richardson avenues.
Out of respect for the veterans, only those with uniforms can march.
All scouts must be in their Class A uniforms (hats, neckerchiefs, slides, shirts).
Tradition has the Arrow of Light rank march with the American and pack flags so be ready!
If at all possible, please try to attend the entire parade as there is a review at the end were we can salute the veteran's committee. 
There will be plenty of water to stay hydrated, however, but it's always nice if someone would to bring some snacks (like trail mix or such).  Also feel free to bring any marching songs or chants that are cub scout appropriate.  Hot dogs will be served at the Soby Post after the parade for a donation.
Thanks all,

John Papp

Pack Cross-Over

Posted on May 5 2016 - 11:20am
Hello Pack 19,
Well, another scout year has gone by and we are now at pack cross-over.  Where did the year go.  Anyway, for those that have been to cross-overs, you know how hectic it can get and it looks like this year's weather won't be cooperating.  I hope to still have an outdoor camp-out so long as it isn't downpours or lightning and there is always the option of sleeping in the hall for the night.  We'll have to play it by ear and Do Our Best!  Because the cross-over is chocked full of great and fun stuff, I want to get an on-time start so I would like to start setting up by 5:15, start cooking by 5:30 - 5:45, start eating by 6:00 p.m. and get the pack meeting started around 6:45 p.m.  
Any help is greatly appreciated.  I need setup help, cooking help, cleaning help, help, help, help!  Also, there will be lots of sign-ups for summer events that we need to finalize at this meeting so be prepared for that as well.
See you at the pack meeting!

Happy Passover

Posted on Apr 20 2016 - 9:21pm
Hello Pack 19,
No den meetings this Friday.  Just a few general reminders:
  • Summer Camp
  • Summer Events
  • Cub scout 'O-Rees'
  • New Popcorn Kernel Needed!
  • Recruitment, recruitment, recruitment
    • Heckman Spring Fair
    • Recruitment Incentives
  • Friends of Scouting

Scroll down for more details:


  • We've registered for summer camp.  If you have registered but haven't paid, please provide a payment as soon as possible.  There may still be room so if you still want to attend and missed the deadline last Friday, just shoot me an e-mail and I'll put you on a waiting list.  We also have enough funds to help with one or two more scouts in case some financial assistance is required.
  • Lots of summer events are taking shape.  Every den level should have a camping requirement and we have at least three in the mix.
    • June 10-12:  Hickory Run State Park family tent camping.
    • July 29-30:  Trenton Thunder overnight has gone live and is ready for sign-ups
    • Aug 19-21:  Coast Guard camping at Cap May
    • Family Fishing
    • Look for more to come!
  • There are a lot of district events coming up all with overnight options.  Because many of these events coincide with pack events, the pack will not be organizing a concerted effort to sign people up and register.  Please go to the council website to register.
    • April 15 - 17:  First-Aid-O-Ree
    • May 13 - 15:  Spring Camp-O-Ree - Orienteering
  • WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF A NEW POPCORN KERNEL FOR THE PACK.   A couple of people expressed an interest and that's good.  I think this job needs 2 - 3 people to really make it easy.  So if you have been on the fence with helping, think about filling the Popcorn Kernel position even if it is only for this year.
  • We are trying something new in the pack by branching out our recruitment efforts.
    • The Oliver Heckman Spring Fair is tentatively scheduled for May 14th but it is touch and go whether the event will happen.  If it does, then Pack 19 will try to have a presence to sign-up new scouts for next year.
    • Ideas are percolating on offering other recruitment incentives to current members.  Look for more details in future announcements and at the pack meeting!
  • Again, we are still only about $700 short of our pack goal for Friends of Scouting.  If we can meet our goal, our pack gets 10% off at the scout store which could potentially save us between $150 - $200.  All we need is 10 people donating less than $10 a month and we will meet our goal.  So if you have been sitting on the fence about donating, please seek out a den leader for a donation envelope and fill one out today.
See you at the pack meeting!
