October 12, 2019 – Sourlands Mountain Hike

Pack 89 held a hike at the Sourland Mountain Preserve in Hillsborough. The scouts (and a few siblings) hiked the ridge trail to the top of the mountain. While at the top, some of the dens worked on badge requirements; our Bear Scouts looked for indirect signs of wildlife. After a refreshing snack, we hiked back to the trail head. Overall, the scouts hiked over two miles and had a great time.

September 7, 2019 – Hike at Colonial Park

Pack 89 held an early September hike at Colonial Part in Somerset. We have beautiful weather for the hike. The hike started in the park, went through the rose garden, out on to the tow path, then back the way we came. The after, the scouts insisted on spending time at the very cool playground (of course).

A happy ending at the playground.

Thank you Keith and Kathy

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!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Keith and Kathy!!!!!!!!!
