Last Call for Recharter

Posted on Nov 22 2020 - 10:08am

Every year, we must submit paperwork to our Council, identifying all active members for the coming year and paying the fees that come along with that.  This year, collecting that paperwork has been challenging due to the lack of in-person meetings but it's still a process we must complete in order to retain our troop's charter and associated insurance coverage.
