Important Information about Recharter

Posted on Nov 15 2015 - 5:20pm

The end of the troop meeting on Tuesday November 17th will be the very last chance to turn in completed Recharter Packets.  Remember, all packets turned in after November 10th will incur the $30 late fee.  Any scouts or adults who do not turn in packets, or turn in incomplete packets, after the end of the 11/17/15 meeting will be dropped from the troop’s registration.

If you cannot make it to this week’s meeting, you can make other arrangements to turn in the packet on time by emailing ifflandm@verizon.net

Candace Ifflander has been working very hard on the troop’s recharter (Thank you Candace!!!), but she will need this time to prepare the paperwork and submit it so the troop’s registration can remain current.

If you are not planning to recharter, as a courtesy please email Candace at ifflandm@verizon.net and let her know.

Volunteers for Meetings

Posted on Oct 18 2015 - 9:33pm

Boy Scouting is a boy-led, boy-run program, but the boys can’t run the program without adult volunteers.

We need some volunteers who are able to dedicate their time from 7-8pm Tuesdays to focus on helping at the weekly meeting.  We understand that your availability may change from week to week, so we have weekly sign-ups on the troop website.
