Dues Due!

A reminder that Troop Dues are due this coming Wednesday, October 15th at the Court of Honor.

Dues this year are $100 per Scout for the 2008-2009 Scouting Year.

This amount covers both the Scout’s Troop dues and National dues as well as a subscription to Boy’s Life magazine for the Scout.

While fundraising has allowed us to keep the dues low in the past, many parents expressed interest in increasing the direct cost of membership and forgoing the fundraising activities.  After careful consideration, the Troop Committee has decided to forgo fundraising activities this year and increase the dues.  The Committee will review this position at the end of the year and may elect to re-institute fund raising activities next year.

As the Troop exists to serve all youth in our community, regardless of financial ability, the Troop can arrange ‘Camperships’ for families who otherwise would not be able to afford the program.  Contact the Scoutmaster for more information.
