Charter Renewal and Membership Status

Posted on Jan 7 2017 - 12:18pm

Boy Scouts of America for some reason runs their membership year from February to February while the actual scouting year runs the academic year.  That being said it is time for us to renew everyone's membership and pay yet more fees to Council.  What this means to you is that some of you may get dropped from the roster.  We make every effort to make sure no one who has paid OR whi is currently active in the Pack gets dropped but mistakes do happen.  So if you get this eBlast but DO NOT GET one Next Sunday please email Richard at richard@pack56.com and we can correct the oversight.
