Pack 1980 Cub Scouts Volunteer for Harvest at America's Grow-a-Row Scout Day

Posted on Aug 31 2014 - 11:37am

Cub Scouts and family members of Pack 1980 helped to "Do a Good Turn" by picking vegetables earlier this week.  Our Cub Scouts contributed to an awesome effort to harvest corn and green beans on the hottest morning this August while other scouts helped to harvest tomatoes.  A total of 6,600 lbs of corn, tomatoes, and green beans was picked by scouts, leaders, and family members on Scout Day 2014 and went to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey for distribution to food pantries throughout the state.

We are starting to plan our 2014-2015 Pack 1980 year.  Our scouts are the winners when more of our parents volunteer their time and talent to Pack 1980.  

  • Do you like to plan celebrations?  Pack 1980 is looking for someone to help coordinate the Blue & Gold Banquet in February!
  • Do you like crafts?  Pack 1980 could use help to lead crafts at a couple pack meetings during the year, including the Family Campout!
  • Do you have an idea that would make for a great pack activity?  Pack 1980 would love to have a parent volunteer coordinate one of our pack meetings!

If you are interested in more information on how you can help Pack 1980 or would like to attend our August planning meeting on August 18th, please e-mail Cindy Barckholtz.

Pack 1980 Bike Ride on the D&R Canal Towpath

Posted on Aug 7 2014 - 1:14pm

Pack 1980 cub scouts, den chiefs, leaders, and family members met this past Wednesday evening at the Frenchtown trailhead for a bike ride on the D&R Canal Towpath.  Scout Leader Tim Barckholtz gave a brief introduction to bicycling safety and equipment as well as trail etiquette before scout groups set out in different groups by ability to ride the towpath. Scouts had a beautiful evening for a bike ride and even the smallest scouts and future scouts pedalled at least 3 miles.  Scouts are pictured showing off the Bicycling Belt Loops they earned.  After the ride, scouts enjoyed Italian ices, skipping stones in the Delaware River, finding a toad, and searching for a hidden geocache.
