Pack 1980's Pinewood Derby will be held on Sunday, January 29th at Readington Reformed Church.  The race schedule is posted on the Pack 1980 Pinewood Derby webpage.  All scouts should have received a pinewood derby kit from their den leader.  Please contact your den leader if you do not yet have your kit. All den leaders are more than willing to help scouts who need a hand in getting started - please do not let lack of tools or pinewood derby experience get in the way of your scout having a great experience building his car with you this year!

SERVICE PROJECT: Scouting for Food on February 11 at Bishops IGA

Posted on Jan 21 2017 - 8:13pm

Our Boys Scouts of America local district, the Hunterdon Arrowhead District, is holding a food drive throughout Hunterdon County on Saturday, February 11th at local grocery stores to benefit the area food banks.  This part of the year is a time when food donations come to a halt, and food banks struggle to meet the needs of local families. Our scouts can "do a good turn" to help meet this need!

                                                at BISHOP'S IGA

                                          between 9 AM and 3 PM                              

Please register on the Scouting for Food webpage and note the time window during which your scout will help collect food in the "Notes" Section of the registration page.  We are looking for 2-3 scouts to volunteer per hour.   

Cub Scouts should wear their Cub Scout cap and rank neckerchief (tied in a knot) over their winter coat.  Please dress appropriately for the weather!

Pack 1980 Cub Scout Share Peace Light at Readington Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony

Posted on Dec 17 2016 - 8:01pm

Braving an extremely cold Friday evening, Pack 1980 Cub Scouts and Leaders joined with others from the community for the Readington Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony.  Pack 1980 Leader Herb Ryder also brought the Peace Light to share with all.  The Peace Light was originally lit from the eternal flame that has been burning at the Grotto of the Nativity in Bethlehem for more than 1,000 years and is then carried by scouts across the globe to share the message of peace and goodwill during the holiday season.  Thanks to all scouts and leaders who represented Pack 1980 at the Tree Lighting Ceremony!
