Pack 89 held it first pack meeting of the new scout year. Our guests were the HHS Robo Raider team. While the parents and leader discussed scouting, the Robo Raiders put on a demonstration for the scouts of a Robot they had built. After the demonstration, the scouts were given a chance to operate the robot.
With the end of the scout year, Keith and Kathy Mindish will be leaving Pack 89. Between their two sons, they have been involved with Pack 89 for over 10 years. Keith has held many roles on our Leadership Committee and has served as Cub Master the past two years. Kathy has served as our liaison with Patriots Path Council and has also held many roles on our Leadership Committee.
Though they are leaving Pack 89, they will still be involved with scouting as their sons are scouts with BSA Troop 489. Our loss is truly Troop 489’s gain.
Thank you for all that you have done!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pack 89 held it end-of-year campfire at Ann Van Middlesworth park again this year. There was fishing and games for the scouts to play. After dinner, the scouts put on their class A uniforms and marched to the campfire ceremony, where they “bridged up” to the next rank.
Pack 89 marched in the Hillsborough’s annual Memorial Day Parade.
Pack 89 held it annual spring camping trip at Otto’s Farm Park in Hillsborough. The scouts did some hiking, played games, and made scores. We had beautiful weather for the trip.
Pack 89 held it annual Blue and Gold Dinner. This is the event where our Webelos II scouts “bridge up” to being boy scouts. Our seven Webelos II Scouts went to BSA Troops 489 and 1776.
Our Bear Den built bird feeders. This helped to fulfill the “Baloo The Builder” requirement, where the scouts learn about hand tools, and use them on a building project.
Our Scouts Visited the Flagtown Firehouse and learned about being a firefighter.
Our Wolf Den (and their siblings) packed over 100 healthy meals for Samaritan Homeless Interim Project (SHIP), which provided services to those in need. For more information on this organization, please see
Pack 89 held its annual Pinewood Derby at the Municipal Building. The scouts had been working on their cars since the December pack meeting and did a great job of building creative and interesting cars. The scouts voted on the coolest-looking car in each den. Then the cars were raced to determine the fastest for each den and the fasted overall.
