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.

Last Minute Pack Meeting Reminders

Posted on Nov 16 2017 - 8:20pm

Hello Pack 19,

Just a few last-minute reminders about tomorrow's pack meeting.

  • Please be sure to wear your Class-A uniform.  It doesn't have to have all the patches on it but it would be nice if everyone did at least have the cub-scout shirt (blue for Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos or tan or blue for Arrow of Light).
  • We will be sitting in chairs for this meeting so if anyone can come early to help set up, that would be great.
  • This meeting will be full of ceremonies and awards so it will be a little more serious than most of our other pack meetings.  As always, families are welcome to come but there will be no activities for any younger siblings, so just keep that in mind.
  • I'm in need of some wood for a fire outside for one of the welcome ceremony.  If you have a few pieces of wood and would be willing to start and tend the fire for the first part of the meeting, I would greatly appreciate it.  There will be a fire pit ready.  Please be prepared to take your wood home with you if not all of it is used.
  • Popcorn sellers will be announced and prizes need to be selected so make sure to select your prize before you leave or send an e-mail with your selection!

Thanks everyone and see you at the pack meeting!

Something About Pies

Posted on Nov 14 2017 - 10:19am

Hello Pack 19,

What!?  Pack meeting already!  Well, better get to the announcements quick.  Oops, a little too quick.  Check out new announcement for Philly Basket Brigade and don't forget to wear your Class-A scout uniform to the pack meeting this Friday!

  • Important Announcements:
    • I need help for popcorn!  Popcorn pickup is this Saturday at a warehouse in Warminster area.  The popcorn then needs to be sorted and given out.  My plan was to pick up the popcorn, bring it back to church, and then get everyone who had a take order to come and help sort and take their popcorn home.  However, I will be out of town due to a boy scout trip.  So basically, I need someone to take charge this Saturday!  It would be great if someone (or a couple of people) could step up and do everything, but I at least need someone to pick up the popcorn order from the warehouse.  Please contact me (pack19aerojp@gmail.com) ASAP to get things worked out.
    • Just a reminder for those that signed-up, the Philly Basket Brigade is this Saturday starting at 9:00 a.m. at the Woodside Church in Yardley.  They will need help from children to decorate boxes and stuff them with food.  Adults will form a "brigade" to move the food from the pallets outside to the packing tables inside.  Come and have fun helping others.  Wear your Class-A or Class-B uniforms to show Pack 19 pride!
    • The annual "Scouting for Food" drive has begun.  I handed out bags at the last den meetings but not everyone was around.  I will have more bags at this month's pack meeting.  In the past, bags were handed out in Oct. so they could go out in Nov. and be collected at the Nov. pack meeting.  However, because everything is late this year, I'm thinking of handing out more bags this Friday and asking everyone to return them at the Dec. pack meeting.  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 info at the pack meeting if you are confused.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Everyone who sold popcorn is eligible for a prize.  Prize levels have been determined and everyone will be contacted to select a prize and finalize their choice at the upcoming pack meeting this Friday
  • Den events:
    • Lion Rank:
      • The Lion den is meeting Tuesday, Nov. 14th, at 6:45 p.m. in church Hall for a flag ceremony conducted by Troop 19.
      • Next den meeting is Dec. 8th.  I'm looking for EMT, fireman, policeman, etc. for this next meeting so if you know of anyone who can come and talk briefly of what they do, please contact me (pack19aerojp@gmail.com)
    • Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, and Arrow of Light Ranks:
      • Regular den meetings for Tiger through Arrow of Light start back up on Dec. 1st
      • 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 pack meetings is this Friday, Nov. 17th, starting at 7:00 p.m.  The theme is Welcome Ceremonies and Awards!  Please wear your Class-A uniform.  Then there is something about pie throwing for top popcorn sellers but probably no one is interested in that at all.  For now, it looks like we will be meeting in the Church Hall as scheduled.  Hope to see everyone there!
  • Outdoor events:
    • Looking out for good weather to launch during a weekend in December.  If not, I will be having a clinic sometime in December to assemble rockets for all the new scouts.
  • 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.

Thanks everyone and see you at the pack meeting!

Weekly Announcements

Posted on Nov 7 2017 - 8:29pm

Slightly Late Announcements

Posted on Nov 2 2017 - 10:28am

Hello Pack 19,

Sorry for the late announcements.  Busy Webelos Weekend and tallying all the popcorn orders.

  • Great job to our Wolf den for a wonderful Halloween themed pack meeting last Friday.  It looks like everyone had a blast dressing up, working on craft projects, and using a lot of toilet paper.  Thanks to all the leaders and parents in the pack who helped out.  We will be debriefing the pack meeting at our next committee meeting on Nov. 29th so if anyone has any comments/praise/suggestions, please plan to attend.
  • The deadline for "Disney Live" is this Friday!  So far, only 7 people have registered.  We need at least 10 to get the discount on the tickets.  If you were thinking of attending, NOW is the time to register.  Go to here to register!
  • Pack registration is due now.  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.  I'm going to begin the re-chartering process soon so I need to make sure that I only add those to the charter that are serious about scouts.  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.
  • All popcorn orders have been tallied and processed.  Popcorn pickup will be Nov. 18th at LPC.  The exact time will be posted soon.  I will be going to pick up all the orders from a centralized location, bring them back to LPC, and then start sorting them by order.  It would be very helpful if anyone who turned in a take home order would come and help sort.  Then you can take your order right away.  Thanks everyone for another great selling season.  You'll have to wait until the pack meeting for final sales announcements!
  • Den events:
    • Unless you were contacted by your leader, all dens except Lions have meetings this Friday.
    • The Wolf den may be in need of military, police, or emergency service worker as a speaker for their den meeting this Friday, Nov. 3rd.  If you are in this area of community service, please contact Marc Lewis (mlewisnj@hotmail.com).
    • Frank Farry is coming to talk to the Webelos and Arrow of Light dens this Friday.  This is ONLY for Webelos and Arrow of Light dens!
    • Lions are on track for your next den meeting next Friday, Nov. 10th.
  • Pack events:
    • Next pack meeting is Nov. 17th starting at 7:00 p.m.  The theme is Welcome Ceremonies and Awards!  Then there is something about pie throwing for top popcorn sellers but probably no one is interested in that at all.
  • Outdoor events:
    • Webelos weekend was awesome.  Our pack weather rock did it again and kept everyone dry even though the prediction was for heavy rain as early as 6:00 a.m. in the morning.
    • Rockets...ROckets...ROCkets...ROCKets...ROCKEts...ROCKETs...ROCKETS!  As I've advertised, every new scout receives a free rocket.  Look for more information here soon!
  • 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.

See you at the den meetings!
