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.

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

Goodbye Webelos II

Posted on Mar 24 2015 - 9:36pm

Hello Pack 19!

Where did the year go?  Our Webelos II are crossing over to boy scouts this Saturday.  Actually, this is the last year that Webelos II will cross-over as next year Webelos II rank becomes Arrow of Light rank.  Although this is mainly a special event for the Webelos II, all of the solomn ceremonies and the cross-over bridge make it worth bringing even a Tiger to see so they know what to look forward to.  The cross-over starts on Saturday at 4:00 p.m. with a pot-luck dinner.  The main pack meeting starting at around 4:45 p.m.

So get your food on and bring your favorite dish!

We'll need main dishes, side dishes, salads, desserts, whatever you feel like bringing.  We'll have plenty of plugs so feel free to bring your crock-pots.

Now on to our regularly scheduled announcements:

  • Mark your calendar...the April pack meeting has been moved to the 10th in order to accommodate our special theme...SPACE.  The planetarium has been confirmed and there will definitely be telescopes and other space related activities.  Pray for clear skies and we'll go outside to take a look at the moon and Jupiter!
  • The date for summer camp is July 12th - 15th.  Sign-ups are here.  Cost is $160 per scout and $80 per adult.  As a reminder, everyone, including any attending adult, will need Medical Forms A, B, and C.  You can find them on the links section of our website.  Candice Fletcher has graciously taken charge regarding summer camp and everyone should have received a notice from her about important dates.  The due date for all payments in May 1st!
  • We will be needing a new treasurer!  Sean Flynn has graciously offered to stay past his son's cross-over date, but I would like to fill the post by the May pack cross-over.  As with Cubmaster and Committee Chair, the pack Treasurer is a required position for the pack to exist.  If you are interested or know someone who would be a good candidate, please contact me (pack19aerojp@gmail.com).
  • Our Spring for Spring fundraiser at SkyZone will be Tuesday, April 14th.  You can go anytime between 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.  Make sure to mention that you are part of the Pack 19 fundraiser so our pack can be compensated.  We receive $4 for every half hour of jumping!.  More details can be found here.
  • Always check our calendar of events as I may forget to mention everything in the weekly E-blasts.
  • We always need volunteers. I know everyone helps out during an event but it would be nice to have a few people to help before the event. Please, please, please, if you can help I can guarantee you will be appreciated, not just by me, but by the entire pack of young scouts.

2015 Pinewood Derby Results

Posted on Mar 24 2015 - 9:35pm

Hello Pack 19,

Final results showing heats and standings for all races are available as PDF downloads.  Just click on the Pinewood Derby menu to the left or here.

I would also like to personally thank all those that helped to make this a successful first pinewood derby for me, especially the Webelos II parents (Rachel, Karen, Cara, Shannon, Caroline, Nancy, Jeff), Kevin, Ginney, Marc, Dave, Lee, Stephen, Anastasia, and a whole lot more that I probably never saw.  This was my first time setting things up and the fact that the basement flooded and destroyed half our stuff didn't help to lower the stress factor.  I apologize if I seemed a bit short with anyone but things did not go as planned during setup and the fact that I mis-typed the pack run-off time by an hour didn't help either.

Other than that...great job to everyone.  Hopefully it was still a lot of fun...at least it looked like the scouts were having fun and that's all that matters.

Thanks,

John Papp
