I still can’t believe today was day one.
Even more unbelievable, we have a 4th grader.
Well folks… here we go!
A couple of key dates and details as we enter the school year.
First and foremost, we have been able to secure space again this year at the church for our meetings. We have also been very lucky to have been granted access to the Scout Hut for some of our meetings this year. A very cool opportunity!
We are also happy to introduce you all to Giovanni Pipia, our Tiger Den leader for the year. Thanks Giovanni for your time and commitment to the program. We are happy to have you!
Pack dues stay the same this year at $125 per scout. We will also be asking for support via several fundraising opportunities throughout the year and will, as in the past ask for fees for certain events. We will collect these dues at the August den meetings. We ask that all payments are in by mid September this year as we have some near term financial commitments that need to be handled.
HInt: We are working on an overnight at the Chattanooga Aquarium!!
As we did last year, we take plastic via Square. We will ask that you round up to cover the 3% transaction fee however. Links will be placed online and we will have readers at the events this weekend and den meetings etc.
