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

On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty,

to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Law

A scout is...

Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, Reverent

Pack Meeting Is On For Tonight

Posted on Dec 15 2017 - 6:10pm

Hello Pack 19,

The pack meeting is still scheduled to happen tonight.  Primary roads are clear and secondary roads are also pretty good.  Use our best judgement if you still want to come tonight but please make sure to allow for enough travel time.  Traffic is moving extremely slowly.

Thanks all,

John Papp

Pay It Forward...Volunteer (and a Time Correction)

Posted on Dec 14 2017 - 9:11am

Hello Pack 19,

Jennifer Capaldi, our pack Treasurer, has graciously put together a SignUp Genius for all volunteer positions the pack is in need of.  Our pack is a volunteer run organization and there are a lot of great people in the background who help make everything you see at the den meetings, pack meetings, and various other indoor and outdoor activities possible.  Please consider volunteering for a position within our pack.  I'm going to have an information session about the various positions the 2nd week of January (food/drinks to be provided).  If you are interested, please go to http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080c4fa5a72aa7fd0-pack and sign-up for a position(s).  You are under no obligation to volunteer if you sign up!  I just like to use this website to prepare for the information meeting in January.  I hope that I will convince you to take a position but I never want to force anyone to do something they don't want.  An active pack with a lot of volunteers helping in the various positions not only makes things less stressful but it also shows an excitement to those wanting to join, which helps the pack grow!

Finally, there was a mix-up in the last E-blast about caroling at Attleboro.  The time to meet is 12:45 with caroling starting at 1:00, not the 1:45 that was originally posted.

Thanks everyone and see you at the pack meeting!

Happy Hanukkah

Posted on Dec 13 2017 - 9:14pm

Hello Pack 19,

Happy Hanukkah.  Here are this week's announcements:

  • Fund Raising
    • Popcorn
      • Anyone who hasn't picked up their popcorn order, your popcorn will be available at the pack meeting this Friday
  • Service
    • Please bring your donated "Scouting for Food" items to tomorrow's pack meeting
    • Carolling at Attleboro retirement community is scheduled for this Saturday, Dec. 16th.  Great way to show our pack pride by singing a few holiday songs to the elderly.  There is still room for singers, even if you didn’t sign up.  For anyone that plays an instrument and knows some holiday tunes, feel free to come and play.  I'm sure everyone at Attleboro will appreciate the additional music.  Meet at 1:45, at the apartments down the hill. to the left of the entrance, but don’t park in resident parking.  There is a visitors lot at the top of the hill.  Wear your class A uniforms if you have one.  Be prepared to stay a bit afterwards to hand out cards and visit with residents.
  • Financial
    • Pack dues are now due.  As always, no scout should be denied joining due to financial reasons so we offer several payment and financial aid options.  If you require some type of financial accommodation, please contact me (pack19aerojp@gmail.com) and we can work something out.  If you would like to pay online, please go to the registration page, select the registration button and register your scout, add the item to your cart, then finish paying through PayPal.
  • Den events:
    • Lion Rank:
      • The second part of the Animal Kingdom adventure requires a small service project that the Lions can do and takes about 20 minutes.  If anyone has any ideas for a project, please let me know (pack19aerojp@gmail.com)
    • Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, and Arrow of Light Ranks:
      • Your den leaders need all the help they can get.  Please look at your scout's rank book and see if there is an adventure that piques your interest that you would be willing to help run.
  • Pack events:
    • The holiday pack meeting is this Friday starting at 7:00 p.m.  If you can come early to help setup, please plan to come around 6:30 p.m.  If anyone has any Christmas/Hanukkah decorations they would like to bring and create a festive atmosphere, please feel free to do so.  Just remember to take everything back home with you as there is no more room to store anything.
    • Popcorn prizes will be handed out at this pack meeting as well.
    • All scouts will receive their special present from Santa.  Hint, it will be something they will need for an event in March.
    • There will be time for siblings to visit Santa if they wish but no one is under any obligation.  
  • Outdoor events:
    • Still looking for time to launch rockets.  Have to wait for my life to settle down and find a good weather weekend.
    • The Klondike Derby is rapidly approaching for Webelos and Arrow of Light dens.  It's a really fun event that tests scouting skills in the outdoors.  This year's Klondike will be on Saturday, January 13th.  If you wish to join the sled team, please let your den leader know.
  • Indoor events.  Follow links for more information.  Note the sign-up deadline dates for each event!
  • General notes:
    • Financial aid and/or payment plans are available for all events and pack dues.  A scout should never be denied the opportunity to fully participate due to financial reasons so please contact a leader if you need any help.
    • Look for an announcement for leadership position at the pack meeting.  Details to follow!
    • Uniform policy:
      • It is strongly encouraged to wear your Class A uniforms to den meetings and pack meetings unless otherwise notified by your den leaders
      • If you have difficulty obtaining a Class A uniform (I know they can be very expensive), please contact me (pack19aerojp@gmail.com) as I have received several donations of uniforms that no longer fit or are no longer needed because the scout has ranked up or crossed-over to boy scouts
      • If you have an old uniform that you don't need anymore, please consider donating it to the pack so that it can be given out to scouts who may need it.

Thanks everyone and see you at the pack meeting!

Weekly Announcements

Hello Pack 19,

Out of town on business this week so the announcements will be almost the same as last week:

  • Fund Raising
    • Popcorn
      • Matt Marion has graciously offered to take care of popcorn sorting and pick-up.   Please contact him (215-337-1243) to pick up your order if you have not already done so.
  • Service
    • The annual "Scouting for Food" drive has begun.  Because of the lateness of getting the bags, there has been a lot of confusion on when to put them out, when to collect, etc.  If you have not collected yet or are confused, "Scouting for Food" is an easy way that our pack can help out during the holidays by collected non-parishable foods and donating them to the LPC pantry.  All you have to do is place the bags on doors in the neighborhood and then collect them a couple of days later.  See attachment to this announcement for a template of a message that should be placed in each bag so that people know what "Scouting for Food" is and when to expect someone to pick up the donation.  I'll have more bags at the den meetings if you need more or haven't received any.  Please bring your donated items to the Dec. pack meeting.
    • Carolling at Attleboro retirement community is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 16th from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.  Great way to show our pack pride by singing a few holiday songs to the elderly.

    • Pack re-chartering is imminent.  I have been in contact with your den leaders to see who is active and who is not.  If you have not paid pack dues or have not contacted me to work out a payment plan, you will be dropped from the charter and can no longer attend cub scout meetings for insurance purposes.
  • Den events:

      • The next Lion den is meeting Friday, Dec. 8th, at 6:30 p.m. in church Hall.  The theme is Animal Kingdom and will have several special visitors.
