A little while ago, a few scouters gave the $ amount their packs charge
Night to Join Scouting. Our last fund raiser, candy bars, went very,
(never expect one boy to sell 320 candy bars) and parents are getting
being nickeled and dimed to death through the year (a pack of hot dogs,
soda, etc. now and then), so we are looking at getting more money up
actually $30, including existing scouts, in September to cover expenses,
including each boys' registration, re- charter, pinewood derby car, and
patches/awards. The majority of the committee feels the $30 is not too
ask, but I'm afraid we'll run-off boys/parents with limited incomes.
local Lion's Club has agreed to establish a scholarship fund for two (2)
should also mention that we share our School Night to Join Scouting with
pack in town. They'll probably charge the regular amount. I would
if anyone on the List could e-mail me their pack fee structure.
