Re-charter is that time when chartering organizations, such as the First Presbyterian Church, renew their sponsorship of scout troops for the coming calendar year; it is also the time when we, the troop, submit to the BSA our roster of active youth scouts and adult leaders, as well as submit payment to register each scout and leader in the scout program.
We are thankful for your ongoing support of scouting, and your recognition of the program benefits to your son. As evidenced by our troop’s recognition as a 2013 Journey to Excellence Silver Unit Award winner, as a Friends of Scouting Platinum Award winner, and of course by the continued growth in leadership, responsibility and skills as your son advances in rank, we strive to deliver a high-quality scouting program, and look forward to another great year of activities in 2015.
Troop 59 is happy to report that the cost of youth registration – which includes insurance coverage, council fees, and Boys’ Life magazine – has not increased for 2015 and will remain at $80.00 per scout for the coming year. The $33.00 cost of adult registration also remain unchanged. Payment by check, payable to “BSA Troop 59” is preferred.
We need to receive all registration payments by November 5, 2014, in order to have time to prepare and submit our troop roster to council by November 17th. Unfortunately, unless we receive your scout’s registration payment by the 5th, we will not be able to include him on our 2015 roster, and he will not be able to participate in troop activities after December 31st. It is our preference, of course, to renew registrations for all of our scouts, but it is important that we hear from you before we include your son on next year’s roster.
Please let us know if you have any questions, or need any additional information.
