Image result for united way stuff the busPack 1980 is looking for scouts who would be available to help with a service project to help the United Way’s Tools 4 School campaign.  On Saturday, July 28th, United Way will have a Stuff the Bus event at both the Flemington Shop Rite and the Flemington Dollar Tree from 8:30 AM – 2:30 PM. 

Similar to our canned good drive, our scouts would stand outside the storefronts and pass out papers that have school supply shopping lists.  Our scouts would also receive any purchased  school supplies or money donations.  Please consider showing your scout spirit by helping with this service project.  Registration for scouts and parents is on the Pack 1980 webpage for Stuff the Bus Service Project.  (Cub Scout age siblings or older are also welcome to volunteer.)

Pack 1980 Event - Mini Golf on Friday, August 3 at 6:30PM

Posted on Jul 18 2018 - 8:42am


The Golf Range at Branchburg, NJ (formerly Tee-rific Golf) has been renovated!  Please join Pack 1980 for an evening of Rita's Ice and Golfing.

We have reserved the picnic area at 6:30PM for a Pack Opening Ceremony, followed by Rita's Ice and then golfing with your fellow Scout Families!  New to golf?  Your Scout will be in good company amongst his friends (who are probably very new to the sport as well).  We will break into smaller groups to keep the game moving along.  Please RSVP on the Pack 1980 registration page.

Cost:  $5 per golfer (special group price).  You will pay at the door.  

We look forward to seeing your family!
