Scouts worked on advancements and met as patrols to list advancement requirements that they need help with. They learned how to get out of being tied to a partner.
Dues are Due TONIGHT!!
2022 Annual Dues: The annual Scouting BSA dues are due! Thanks again to the Scouts’ (and adult volunteers) efforts in tent rentals and event parking, the troop will be collecting $0 in annual dues. The Michigan Council and National BSA - that provide content and insurance, do need to collect $132 per Scout, and $57 per adult volunteer. You can use Earned scout account money for this, make a check payable to BSA troop 623, or even pay on-line by credit card at this link. Payments are needed by the end of the Month! Thank you. - Orrin Lorenz
