Community Service is a big part of scouting. We are all so generous during the holiday seasons, but for many people hunger is a daily problem. Food pantries are in desperate need of supplies during the summer months.

Please consider joining us on Sunday, July 21st at Stop and Shop of Morris Plains to collect food and supplies for the Parsippany Food Pantry. We are in need of six (6) scouts and two (2) adults per hour.  

To sign up/RSVP, please confirm your time slot on our SignUp Genius. Please note we are also looking for a few scouts to help with delivering the food to the Parsippany Food Pantry on Monday, July 22nd.  

Let's do what we can to help a family in need this summer!

If you have any questions, please reach us via email info@pack142.net or phone 570-212-2036.

 Thank you for helping us support our community!

Den Meeting – Please Attend 8/25 3PM
Aug 25 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Hi Everyone!

I sent this invite out a week or two ago, however, I am use to sending to the Webelos and send it to the wrong group. Sorry!

I hope you are enjoying the summer and this great beach and pool weather :-). I hope Sunday 8/25 at 3:00PM den meeting time and date work for the majority of you. Please “do your best” to be there. There is a nice pavilion by the ball park at Tourne park for us to meet. The plan would be to have a fun activity for the kids that can incorporate one of the requirements (details to follow) and play some sports in the field (maybe baseball).

Most importantly, we will work on planning out our year including the blue and gold dinner or den is tasked with hosting this year. My goal for the blue and gold is for it be fun, interactive, not too expensive, and a little shorter than last year. I also want to engage the pack to have each scout family bring one homemade item to the event that can be food, or something that can be donated. This is just some ideas, please start thinking about it. We need to have a theme too.

I hope this date works for Dylan and his parents Poppy and Dave too so we can do the video chat with the scouts from England. If not, we will certainly do it at our next den meeting. Sorry it got pushed out so long. Have a great day everyone and hope to see you on the 25th!

All the best,

Ian

Cell: 973-460-1029

PS please RSVP on the link in the email. It only takes a second and will help me plan.
