Hello Troop Families -
For those of you who missed the Court of Honor, this is a reminder that we'd really appreciate your support for Friends of Scouting. Our Troop has met about one-third of its goal so far but we'd love to have more participation. Scouting dues only cover a portion of the costs of running Scouts BSA and all the wonderful programming our kids enjoy and learn from. Friends of Scouting helps fill the gap, covering expenses like training, equipment and camp operations. It also helps keep dues low so that more families can afford to participate in scouting.
