Click Here to Register your scout – Today is the deadline. Only full payment is offered as an option until the deadline.
The troop cannot afford to register scouts who have not paid their registration fee after today’s deadline. Scouts can always complete a BSA application and re-register at a later time at the same rate.
Today is also the last day to order Troop 108 Hoodies and Sweatshirts – See information below. Click HERE to use the contact us form to contact the Scoutmaster to place your order today.
The troop will be placing an order for the very popular Troop 108 hoodies and sweatshirts soon. With a deadline for ordering of December 3rd, we should have these ready for distribution at the Court of Honor on December 19th….just in time for Christmas!
Sweatshirts from Adult small through Adult XL will be $11 each (add $1.50 for each additional X for larger sizes).
Hoodies from Adult small through Adult XL will be $16 each (add $1.50 for each additional X for larger sizes).
Bring your check in the correct amount with the scout’s name, and what you’re ordering and the size in the note field of the check to an upcoming meeting (November 21st or 28th) or make other arrangements with the Scoutmaster to place your order.
The Catawba Masonic Lodge (directly across from Unity Presbyterian Church) is holding their annual dinner banquet this coming Saturday evening (6pm on November 19th) and are seeking our help with their flag ceremony.
If you’d be interested in helping with the flag ceremony for this event please contact ASM David Harllee @ 803-242-0468. It should take no more than two hours and dinner is included for those who are able to participate.
Our community is always very generous in their contributions of canned goods and other non-perishable items to our Scouting for Food drive each November. As a result, we need scouts to help with collecting these items from our generous neighbors so we can take it to the Fort Mill Church of God Food Pantry on Academy Street in Fort Mill.
We will meet in the parking lot of the church at 9am on November 12th and canvass the neighborhood behind the church where our scouts handed out collection bags last week. Remember, every scout needs service hours for rank advancement and scouts should be able to earn a couple of hours of service time for their efforts to help those in our community that are less fortunate.
See you on Saturday!
Anyone is interested in earning service hours should meet at the church at 9am this Saturday, November 5th to pass out bags for Scouting for Food. This is an excellent opportunity to help the less fortunate in our community by helping our local food banks stock their shelves in time for the holidays.
We will be servicing the houses in the Whiteville Park neighborhood behind the church. This should take no longer than 2 hours – depending upon the number of scouts that are able to assist.
Order of the Arrow members from Troop 108 who have signed up (or want to attend but haven’t yet signed up – $5.00 late fee) should gather at the church at 4:30pm on Friday, November 4th to car pool up. Please bring $5 to offset the cost of gas. We will stop to get supper on the way up, so bring money for that and for purchasing items at the trading post that will be set up at the event, if you wish.
The weather looks like it will be nice with cool nights and warm, dry days. Pack accordingly.
We look forward to seeing you on Friday.
Our youth leaders elected not to hold a troop meeting on Halloween night this year.
We hope that you all have a happy and safe evening and we look forward to seeing you at November 7th’s regular meeting.
Each year in December the troop has to recharter our members. This requires scouts and leaders to pay the fees needed to continue their membership for the coming year. The deadline for payment is December 1st 2016.
Two options for payment are being offered:
- a 1/2 payment option which allows members to make two separate payments of one half of the total amount (plus PayPal fees)
- a full payment option which allows members to make a single payment in the full amount (plus Paypal fees)
Total cost for registration is $50 and this covers the BSA annual membership renewal as well as maintenance for troop equipment, the purchase of new troop equipment, badges and awards that our scouts earn and more.
Note that the troop is no longer able to front the money for scouts who have not completed payment in full for their annual membership prior to December 1st, 2016. We have extended this courtesy in the past and have not gotten paid back in some cases. To prevent this from occurring in the future, the practice is being discontinued.
Questions about the annual membership renewal process? Click here and select the Troop Committee Chairman as the recipient and complete the contact form.
Did you have a chance to participate in the Webelos Woods as a Webelo Scout about to transition into A Boy Scout Troop? If so, you remember what a great time of learning and fun it was. Tjere is about to be another Webelos Woods weekend coming up on October 21-23 at Westminster Park, Rock Hill and they are in need of scout-aged leaders to help staff the event.
Troop 108 is blessed by scouts with leadership potential and ability and this is a great chance to put it to use in a fun environment and earn service hours in the process. There is a $15 staff fee which covers your meals while at the course and staff t-shirt.
If you’re interested in helping out, please open, read, complete and return the staff application found on the link below:
