Hello Troop 161 Friends:
Our annual re-charter is due in the VERY near future.  This is where all the scouts sign up for the coming year and pay annual dues.  We need to verify that you will (will not) be in scouts for the next year.. Annual dues will be $98.00 per scout.  Scouts also have the option of subscribing to Boys Life magazine. Please pay the Troop via Venmo at @BSATroop161.  When making your payment :
 Indicate which scout you are paying for - this is CRITICAL
Indicate whether you are paying for Boys Life
Can you get back to me at daveandannie1@msn.com (513-827-9066) or Brian Dyson at briandyson@hotmail.com (513-641-8353) to let us know if you are joining us next year?

Hi Everyone - There is still a little finishing work to do on Zach's Eagle Project.  He needs help cleaning off the bollards (posts) and back filling around them and painting. If everything goes well, it should be a short day.  We're meeting at the church at 9:00.  There will be doughnuts!!!
