We now have 31 hardy scouts, leaders and families signed up for the winter campout. We can still take a few more. If you would like to bring others in your family, let me know. This will be on a first response, first reserved basis.

Yes, it's that time of year for our annual winter campout, and NO, you will not freeze!  This year we will be camping at Camp "Wah-Tut-Ca" in Northwood NH in two of their wood stove heated cabins with lots of bunks.  The date is set for Saturday Dec 13, and we now need $10 deposits/participant. ($10 goes towards cabin plus some of the food costs. Balance of food costs will be allocated to all participants and collected after the weekend.)

Sign up for the Museum of Science overnight 'Camp-In' by Dec 1 7PM

Posted on Nov 22 2014 - 11:00pm
Here's an event that will spark the interest of all our Cub Scouts? It's a trip to the BostonMuseum of Science! Our boys will get the opportunity to explore the hallways and exhibits of the museum over the course of the evening, do fun and educational experiments, and finish the night by setting up their sleeping bags right in one of the museum's exhibit halls! If you want your Cub Scout to have an unforgettable sleep over, then the Boston Museum ofScience's Camp-in is just the event for you!
 
Pack 19 has selected this event as our March activity.  We need to make firm reservations for the Museum of Science sleep-over ASAP before it fills up.  We've picked Friday March 27, 2015 for the overnight. 
A cub scout can attend with a parent or guardian.  If there is more than 1 cub scout in the family, only one parent needs to attend, though two parents or guardians may register, if they wish.  Any siblings who are not cub scouts cannot attend, even if the sibling is an active boy scout (YCC rule, not ours).  Finally, when the registration is submitted, payment in full must be made at that same time.  
 
Costs:   $62.50 per cub scout
             $62.50 per parent or guardian
           $125.00 per cub scout/parent-guardian pair  
Because of the urgency, we're setting a firm date of December 1, 2015 at 7:00PM for a paid commitment to attend, which means a check for full payment of $62.50 per attendee made out to Pack 19 must be in my possession at that time.  That evening I will make electronic reservations for everyone that signed up, and payment will be made via credit card. If you want to sign up later, you will be able to do that if there is still room.  The reservations are filling up and once full, no one else can be registered.  Also, note that once we have registered and paid, the reservation is non-refundable.
 
If you have questions about this very popular event, talk to your den leader or feel free to call Joe Lackie. 

Today! Annual Street Cleanup / Service Project; Meet at the Flint at 12:45

Posted on Nov 15 2014 - 9:56pm

The November pack activity is our annual service project.  This year we will be cleaning up two streets in Middleton, North Liberty Street and Lake Street at the end of the paved section.  Scouts, parents and leaders meet at the Flint Library parking lot at 12:45 Sunday Nov 16.  We will break up into two crews, one for each street, and head out at 1:00 to start the cleanup.  We anticipate it will take less than two hours to clean up each street.  At the end of the cleanup, we will regroup at the Flint Library to take pictures of the crews and their haul of trash.

We have 1 pickup to supplement the bottleshed trailer to haul the trash.  If you can help and bring your pickup, let us know asap.  (You will not need a valid sticker to haul this trash to the transfer station on this date.  We've made arrangements with the DPW.)  

Scouts and all participants should wear boots, warm clothes and jackets that can get dirty, hats and gloves.  Scout uniform is not required for this event.  

This is a family event, so all members of the family are welcome to participate.  If you have not yet done so, please let Joe Lackie know how many will be attending from your family.  Questions, contact John Bucchiere 978-767-0924 or Joe Lackie 978-771-2540.
