Last Fall we went through this with the group, PTA groups around the
country were not rechartering Packs and Troops around the country.
We have had this come up in the past in our council and found a
simple solution to this problem.
Contact local Churches!! In our council 90% of our units are
chartered by churches. We still use the schools for back to school
nights but that is it.
Having a church sponsor a Pack or Troop is great if the church looks
at your group as a outreach ministry. Most of the churchs Packs and
Troops have use of the church Van's or Bus. Plus you have a place to
go on Scout Sunday!!
I would tell the PTA "Thank You" for the past year, and then move on.
