Re charter
I am so happy we are a solid troop financially and the fundraisers help keep scouts strong. That being said. Dues are $72.00 per scout now for a year of registration . I think it is expensive however. we also earn quite a bit so the scout earnings should offset the dues annually. Deadline is Dec 30,2021 for 2022 calendar year. I announce this early to get everyone aware of upcoming events scouts can participate to earn this.
Looking Ahead. I have reserved Q-Zar in Toledo on January 1st at 5pm for our scout Video Game lock in . Cost is $20.00 for event. Scouts you know what this is 🙂 followed by a pizza party
