Cub Scout Pack 61
(Flemington, New Jersey)

In 1949 several Scouters and community leaders in Flemington decided there should be a Cub Scout Pack in town. They met to organize and found that  they were missing only one leader, the Cubmaster. They asked a young printer named Doug Niece if he would be interested. Mr. Niece signed the application and has been Cubmaster of Pack 61 ever since!. We believe this makes Mr. Niece the longest-serving Cubmaster in the United States. Mr. Niece officialy retired as Cubmaster in February 2009 on the 60th anniversary of Cub Pack 61.  In 2011 Mr. Niece was recognized as one of the top 100 scouters in the Boy Scouts of America organization nationwide on the 100th anniversary of the BSA

Over the years thousands of young men have participated in Cub Pack 61. Some have gone on to earn the prestigious Eagle Scout award, others have been given Heroism or Honor Medals for saving a life, and some have even returned as Cub Scout Leaders with their own boys.

Please take a moment to say "Thank you" to Mr. Niece for his many years of dedicated service to the young men of our communit
