On Monday October 17, Pack 89 held their annual Halloween party. Scouts participated in a pumpkin decorating contest, a mummy wrap competition, scavenger hunt, and finished the night off with a story around the campfire. A great time was had by all! Check out some of the awesome pumpkins:
Pack 89 held its annual Blue & Gold Luncheon to day goodbye to our Webelos 2 scouts. Of our ten Webelos 2 scouts, three have decided to pursue other interests while seven are moving on BSA Troop 1776.
Pack 89 held its annual pinewood derby at the HIllsborough municipal complex. The scouts got to show off the card they had spent the past few months building. We had some very creative cars and some exciting races.
This month, Sergeant Michael Ranges of the NJ State Police spoke with our Pack. He told the scouts about what it takes to be an NJ State Trooper, his experience going though training, what a typical day is like, and let the scouts explore hit squad car.
To fulfill the “Build a Better World” requirement, our Webelos 2 dens met with Mayor Lipani. They learned about the responsibility of being mayor and some opportunities to help improve Hillsborough.
