Dues is due now! Thank you for those that already paid. Dues for scouts is $100/scout. For scouts in the same family, it's $90 for the second child, and $80 for the third, etc. Adult leaders are $30/year but if adult is trained in his/her position, the dues is FREE. A calendar item is set up on the troop website with Paypal so look for Nov. 18-23 to pay for dues by Nov. 23 (if you wish to pay by PayPal). For all Paypal transactions, you can pick any one of those days (Nov. 18-23) to pay. Note that your "registration" stays on one of those days. Not to worry since we will carefully review all the dates within the range. Just pay on ONE date.

Scouts interested in the Stamp Collecting Merit Badge-

A member of St. John's Parish has donated a collection of stamps that needs to be reorganized and completed. First one who calls gets it.

Start your Thanksgiving Day off right by GIVING. This event is a HUGE plus for our Boys!  It's fun! They get volunteer credit hours for BSA or School (as proceeds go to local food pantries) but even more exciting is that our troop gets to interface with our community. The whole family is welcome to participate as Troop 776 only will man the water stations.  Everyone who volunteers will receive a 2015 Turkey Trot T shirt.  All leaders and scouts please wear your class B shirts.  Please sign up now we need as many bodies (~35) as this event is becoming very popular.    Call ASM Adessa with any questions.
