Troop Dues are Due
We're collecting scout dues for 2018-19 year, and updating family information/medical consent.  Dues and completed forms are due by October 9th.

1. Dues for this year are the same as last; $200/first scout, $150/second scout and $100/third scout.  These dues subsidize scout campouts and activities throughout the year.  In addition, the dues help cover the cost of badges and awards for our Court of Honor.

2. We'll be compiling a scout family directory this year to help parents arrange car pools and such.  If you don't want your information included in the directory, there is an opt-out box on the family information form.  This directory will only be shared with families in our troop and not to be shared outside of our troop.

3. Parents are all expected to volunteer to help plan at least one scout trip (this is to assist the ASM in charge of the trip) and volunteer to help at at least one scout meeting throughout the year.

To complete the Family Information Form, please click here for our Google Form. All dues checks should be mailed (217 West Lane) or given to our Troop Treasurer Tiffany Carlson.  Please make out checks to "Troop 76" and please write "dues" in the memo line.  If you have any questions completing the form, please contact Jana Hogan for assistance.

We never want any of our scouts to miss out on a program due to financial constraints. If you are in need of financial assistance please contact our Troop Committee Chair Jodie Francis for help. All requests for assistance are kept strictly confidential.

Thank you all for your help throughout the year.   We could not run such an amazing program without support from our scout parents.

 

Service Projects
Scouts are required to volunteer 12 hours of community service each scouting year.  You're encouraged to earn more.  For the comprehensive list of opportunities, click on the "activities" link above.

 

Fundraising Requirements:
Troop 76 has one fundraiser, the Holiday Wreath Sale in the late Fall.  Every scouting family is required to participate.  Wreath Sales Requirements: Every Scout is asked to sell a set dollar amount (to be determioned) of wreaths, and fill a working shift with a parent either at Jesse Lee on the day of wreath delivery or to sell wreaths at the Church Sales (Jesse Lee or St. Mary's).

Please contact Jodie Francis at troop76committee@gmail.com if you have any questions.
