Camp Cards:
This is the last week to sell camp cards.  All unsold cards must be returned to the troop by May 20th.  We can return unsold cards to the New Birth of Freedom Council. We need the cards returned by May 20th so we can turn them in by the date Council has specified and not be charged for them. Monies for this fund raiser are also due at this time. We have to make payment for the cards we sold when we return the unsold cards.

Bonus Books:
Monies are due for the bonus books. Each scout is responsible for selling a minimum of two books (non-returnable). This is to help replace worn out and broken equipment.  Thank you to those of you who have already paid for their books.

Last chance to pass the swim test with the troop is Monday May 18th @7:00p.m.  We will be swimming at the South Western School District swim pool during their community swim. Parents are to remain at the pool until the test is done.  Scouts may leave once they complete the test. Everyone who swam at our last swim night has already taken and passed the swim test.  There will be no supervision provided by the troop once the testing is completed.

All participants must complete the BSA swim test for Camp Rodney and Sea Base.
