I need recharter fees if you have  not paid yet.....I will be turning in recharters on Thursday:
$25 to recharter per scout and per leader for the new year...this covers the national fees...none of it goes to the troop.
$12 if you want to receive Boys Life Magazine for the year.
$10 (or more) for the Merit Badge University class later this month if you signed up. Those signed up for Aviation will pay that day.
Isaac will be guiding scouts to make their own little "stoves"... each scout needs to bring aluminum cans, isopropyl alcohol, scissors, matches, etc.

You and your family are invited to our Court of Honor, Tuesday, December 16 at 7:00pm.
Please do not forget to bring a finger food and one 2L drink to share.
If you have completed any merit badges at home, I need to know by Sunday night

Also, if you have any service hours, I need to know the date, the number of scouts,
the number of leaders, the number of any others, and a description of the
service rendered along with the name of the participating organization.

COMING UP SOON:
Recharter is right around the corner...Council wants it turned in by January 15. Please get your recharter/insurance fee of $26 to me as soon as possible. Right now, the troop does not have a cushion, so I need to hear from you right away if there is a problem in getting your recharter paid.
