Troop 517 charges $2 per month. We also encourage monthly payments.
We also allow a scout to move his fund raising money to another troop
if he transfers. We require the new Scoutmaster or Committee Chairperson
to write and ask for the money. If he does not join another troop, the money
stays in the troop general operating funds. We haven't had any complaints
from the parents about this policy.
