Mon, Nov 14, 2022 Dues info from Mr. Lorenz
2023 Dues: I am attaching an infographic that attempts to explain costs. Bottom line is $135 for scouts, ($3 increase from last year), $57 for adults. $15 additional for Scout Life Magazine. This money all goes to national and council organizations and pays primarily for curriculum & insurance. For 2023, thanks to adults and youth work on fundraising, generous community donations, and support from the church, there is no additional local fee for 623 participants on top of National and Council costs. Scholarships are available if Cost is the primary factor to involvement.
Use of Scout Accounts:
Below is a chart of names I have (probably not 100% accurate yet - if your name is missing just let me know), their 2023 dues, and a calculation of additional money owed IF they want to use their scout account to the fullest to pay dues. Quick reminder: Scout Accounts are money tagged for use by scouts, the amount based on the amount of work put into fundraising help.
I will ask for payment at the next scout meeting - Nov 14h. Dues can be paid with a check to Troop 623, cash, or credit card (additional fee) if someone desires. We will also need to know if the scouts want to pay for and receive the Scout Life Magazine, and then their dues total will be adjusted.
Any further Dues questions can be sent to me.
