Two spots have opened up for the Mount Dora Craft Fair on Saturday afternoon. We need to fill these spots. 

Popcorn & Mt Dora, 2 ways to pay for campouts, summer camp and the $48 needed for membership:

Posted by michaeltneff on Oct 20 2017 - 5:09pm

Troop:  campouts, dues ($5/month), troop support ($60/year), and membership ($48) all cost money.  Participation in the popcorn fundraiser or the Mt. Dora food booth fundraiser are excellent ways to raise the money to cover your costs.   Take advantage of these opportunities!  Q: What is troop support?  A: the cost of running the troop in excess of dues.  It is requested after Popcorn and Scout Card fundraisers.  The idea is for a scout to raise money at the fund raisers to cover this cost.   Q: so Dues of $60/year plus troop support of $60 makes $120/scout to run troop 225?   A: yes.  The troop committee sets a budget every Fall based on the expenses of the past two years.  Q: Why not make dues $10 a month?  A: why not?  come to the troop committee meeting and support this idea.  Q: do I have to be a member of the committee to attend?  A: no, just to vote, all are welcome as we work together to make the troop successful.  Q: is this less than last year?  A: yes, last year troop support was $100 plus dues of $60, so this year is $40 less.  Q: Why is membership so much?  A: $15 is for insurance (provided by our local council) and $33 is for membership in the National organization. Q: is this more than last year?  A: yes, the $15 for insurance is new, and the national membership fee was increased from $24 to $33.  Q: so overall, considering dues, troop support and membership, the cost for a Troop 225 scout went down $16?   A: yes.   Q: why do Eagle scouts get a discount?  A: as both an incentive to scouts and a benefit the troop. Q: Is financial support available?  A: yes, the place to start a request of support is with Scoutmaster Cothran.

Posted by michaeltneff on Sep 22 2017 - 11:07am
Troop, your charter organization's denomination is responding to the natural disaster in Texas 4 ways. Many churches respond in many ways, the Church of the Brethren's niche is financial, childcare, kits and long term rebuilding.  If you would like to help, please see below.   Questions welcomed.  Sincerely, Mr. Neff, Committee chair and charter Org. Rep.
