Service Hours

Posted by mlydon on Dec 5 2017 - 9:17am

 

A month of festive activities for the new Senior Living Complex in Acworth – Celebration Village has been organized by Robin Matthews.  Since those who participate will be representing our Charter (Saint Catherine), their time will count towards the Saint Catherine service hours requirement (First Class: 1 hr, Star: 3 hrs and Life: 3 hrs) as previously communicated by Mr. Monterroso.
If you play an instrument and would like to play a couple of Christmas songs with a few other Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers at the caroling event, let Ms. Matthews robinm@saintcatherinercc.org know.  She is setting up rehearsals separately.  Ms. Matthews needs to know who will be there for each date. Click on the link here www.SignUpGenius.com/go/20F0C4EABAC23A57-celebration for the Sign Up Genius.  In the SUG are items encouraged to be donated for the trees and crafts and the Caroling event.  Please ask your parents to go through their Christmas and 4th of July décor for things you can donate.

Communications

Posted by mlydon on Dec 5 2017 - 9:16am

To encourage the development of good communication skills, Troop 422 requests that scouts ask questions by calling or meeting in person. This means that parents are asked not to call, email, or text, and scouts are asked not to email or text, to initiate contact.

Dues are now PAST DUE!

Posted by mlydon on Nov 29 2017 - 7:29am

If you have not paid your 2018 dues, please do so at the next meeting.  See below post for more details.

DUES!

Posted by mlydon on Nov 29 2017 - 7:29am

Dues are due on Oct 30th for the following year.  

 

From the Atlanta Area Council:

The Boy Scouts of America has announced that the BSA membership fee will increase to $33 for all registered youth and adult leaders, effective December 1, 2017.

The good news is that we are keeping the cost for the scouts the same!!  We have raised the amount the adult leaders pay to $20.

Troop 422 Dues Structure

 

The dues structure is $100 per Scout due by Oct 30th.   Discounts are provided for each scout with at least one parent active in troop leadership.  Discounts are provided based on the prior year’s participation.

The discounts are:

 Active Merit Badge Counselor: for three or more badges: $10 discount for all scouts ($90 per scout). 

  •  Active means signed up and available for scouts to work on merit badges.

Active Scoutmaster/Assistant Scout Master:  $20 discount ($80 per scout)

  • Active means all training (online, indoor, outdoor) and ~30% participation in meetings/outings. 

Active Committee Member:  $20 discount ($80 per scout) 

  • Active means Youth Protection and committee challenge complete and active leader role such as Popcorn Kernel, Secretary, etc., or sits on 3 or more Board of Reviews.  Participation in at least 2 committee meetings.

Next year’s discount will be determined by the Committee based on Adults on the recharter list. This means parents must fill out an adult application and take youth protection.  There are a lot of ways to be involved in the troop, and we need your support to stay active and help the boys learn and advance.  A dues discount our way of saying thank you to those who donate their time.

Eagle Scouts- The Troop year following attaining Eagle, Eagle dues drop to 50% of what the Scout’s dues would be if the Scout were not an Eagle.

Secondary Registered Scout- This is when a Scout is Primary Registered with a Venture Crew and only participates with the Troop to advance. At present, the Troop will not charge any fees/dues for this Scout. The Troop will also not pay for any expenses associated with the Scout.

For scouts joining mid-year, dues will be prorated excluding the month the scout joined the troop and going through December. For example, if a scout joins in March, he would be charged for 9 months of dues (Apr.-Dec).

Adults – Registered adult leaders pay $20

Overdue payment- After the first meeting in January, dues will be offset against the scout account.  If funds are available in a scout account, the account will be automatically debited to cover outstanding dues.  If funds are not available, the scout’s account will reflect the delinquency and the scout will not be permitted to advance in rank until the dues are paid.  The Treasurer will provide a list of all delinquent scout accounts to the Advancement Chair on a monthly basis. 

If you have a question about whether you qualify for a discount, please contact Meghan Starr.
