Rechartering is starting up NOW.  Please pay your dues of $150 unless you have been notified of a discount due to popcorn sales. If you know now that you/your scout will not be continuing in the Troop after December, please let Tim O’Toole know ASAP. Part of the recharter is to update all of our leadership and youth membership rosters, so this information is needed.  If you do not contact Tim he will assume you are continuing, but you will be responsible for paying dues.   Please speak to Tim or Jon Apicella if you have any questions on membership fees.
