Pack 224 (Riley School) bid farewell to summer and hello to popcorn fundraising on August 25, 2017 at Ponderosa Park in Scotch Plains. 20 scouts and their families were able to gather and enjoy games, the spray park, potluck dinner and good 'ol burgers and dogs on the grill. Pack 224 is looking forward to another great year, full of activities and outings and good times!! Popcorn fundraising is a lot of fun for the boys; this large undertaking has been spearheaded by scout parents Jessica & John Butrico, scout mom/Pack secretary Helena Jinzenji, and scout mom/Pack Committee Chair Ashley Birmingham. This officially begins the Pack's year of camping, indoor and outdoor adventures, games, trips, friendship, and above all - service. All boys and their families are always welcome to any den or pack meeting to check out some of the team building and adventuring the Scouts do! For more information on Riley School's Pack (kindergarten-grade 6), please email Cub Master Emily Raphel at email@example.com and discover how your family can be part of this awesome community!
