Join with scouts from around Hunterdon County to DO A GOOD TURN by helping to harvest corn, green beans, or other vegetables that will be donated to help those who would not otherwise have access to fresh produce!  

Please register on our Pack 1980 Scout Day for America's Grow-a-Row webpage.  The location is Pittstown Farm 150 Pittstown Road, Pittstown NJ 08867 from 10-12pm! .  Volunteers should come dressed for the weather and to get dirty, wear sturdy closed toed shoes, bring filled reusable water bottles, and wear any sunscreen you feel is needed. We do work rain or shine and will only cancel in the case of thunderstorms - we will send an email the night before in case of weather related cancellation. 

Webelos Leader Shannon Wootton will be our Pack 1980 Leader at this event.  Please plan to join our Pack 1980 group because service is more fun with friends!!!

Let's Go Fishing

Posted on Aug 12 2017 - 5:17pm

 

Come to Echo Hill Park (42 Lilac Drive, Flemington, NJ 08822) this Wednesday, August 16, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. to throw a line in the water and see what you can catch! This event is open to all pack members and siblings (adults can fish with a valid NJ fishing license).

The pack will provide bait. If you have never fished before and want to try it, the county parks and recreation department will hold a fishing clinic and provide fishing gear if you don’t have any. Of course, please feel free to bring your own gear.

We will fish from 6:30 until dark or the park closes at 8:30, whichever comes first. The rain date will be Friday, August 18th.

Please sign up on the event page. If you want to participate in the clinic, please indicate in the notes when you sign up so the pack can report the number of participants to the county.

Pack 1980 Family Bike Ride on the Columbia Trail

Posted on Aug 11 2017 - 1:44pm

A group of eighteen from Pack 1980, including nine Cub Scouts, enjoyed a beautiful evening for a ride on the Columbia Trail.  The group pedaled from the Califon trailhead to the bridge spanning the Ken Lockwood Gorge along the rail trail before turning back for home.  Along the way, the scouts spotted several of the gnome homes that are characteristic of the Columbia Trail and also spotted a family of deer. The scouts made great time and then enjoyed each other's company with riding bikes and playing games in the trailhead parking lot!
