Troop 349 Dues and Rechartering

Hello Troop 349,

We are in the process of registering our Troop and our scouts for the coming year.  After much discussion, the troop committee set the annual dues once again at $100 per scout, and $90 for each additional brother in the troop.

Please Submit a your dues, checks made payable to BSA Troop 349, by the November 18th meeting so that we can meet the Suffolk Council deadlines.
