Welcome back. We have a great year planned ahead. Your annual dues will be collected. Bring your parents to the CSUMC this Thursday September 13 @ 7:30 pm. We will recognize the Scouts who earned merit badges from Summer Camp, and those who earned a new Rank since our last award ceremony.
Return any Troop equipment (tents, merit badge books, etc.) so we can prepare for the Traveling Camporee in Williamsburg.
Class A Uniforms
Please bring your checkbook to pay your annual dues.
French Toast Tickets will be distributed at a later meeting.
While the cost of everything is going up, we decided to hold the registration fee at $100 – the same as last year. When you look at the great programs our Troop provides for a year of activities, you will see the value of our program for your young adult.
