Pack 1980 Scouting for Food 2016 Report

Posted on Feb 24 2016 - 10:03am

Thank you to the 21 Cub Scouts, 8 Leaders, and many parents who assisted with the Scouting for Food collection on Saturday, February 20th at Bishop's Thriftway.  Pack 1980 scouts collected a full SUV payload of non-perishable goods plus several additional boxes as well as cash donations to give to Readington Starfish.  The total efforts of Pack 1980 scouts at Bishop's Thriftway along with Troop 1969/Troop 199/Pack 199 Scouts at the Branchburg ShopRite led to a donation of approximately 3700 lbs of food.  Readington Starfish reports that they are overwhelmed with the generosity of the community. As a result, many will enjoy a bounty of food during the Easter and 4th of July distributions.

Pack 1980 Scouts Look to the Stars at Voorhees Observatory

Posted on Dec 12 2015 - 11:14pm

Pack 1980 Cub Scouts enjopyed the wonders of the Night Sky at the Paul Robinson Observatory at Voorhees State Park.  Volunteers from the New Jersey Astronomical Association helped to educate curious scouts in the science of Astronomy,  Questions on telescopes, stars, and space travel were answered inside and telescopes and binoculars were set up outside for scouts to observe nearby stars and constellations.  Constellations observed included Taurus the bull (the scouts got a good view of Aldeberan, an orange giant star in that constellation, through one of the telescopes), Pegasus, Cassiopeia, and Ursa Minor ("the litte bear", which includes Polaris - the North Star) and the Pleiades star cluster (a group of seven stars, also known as "the seven sisters", which looked large and bright through just a pair of binoculars).  Scouts were also able to look through the largest public telescope in New Jersey to see another orange giant star in a distant star cluster.
