Yard Sale Fundraiser - April 4, 2020
New BSA fees meant that $60.00 dues for each Scouts went all to the 10-month recharter.  Troop 145 did not get to keep any portion to help pay for Troop supplies..   To help raise money for the Troop and to fill Scout Accounts, this Yard Sale needs to be a HUGE Success.  Please donate items, help work a 2-hour shift on Friday or Saturday and ADVERTISE!

2) Yard Sale - April 4, 2020.   Help with donating items (2 points). Help with set-up, pricing and take-down then selling. (1 point for each hour minimum 2 hours.)  Especially help with advertising!  

Scout Account Status
dollarsignTroop 145 prides itself on keeping good finances and allowing Scouts to fundraise into or be reimbursed through Scout Accounts then use those funds to pay for Troop activities.   To reduce the number of deficits and unknown balances at sign-ups as well as a new BRMC Decembe recharter,  Troop 145 would appreciate if families could deposit a minimum of $50.00 at the start of this Scout Year.  If any questions,  please talk to any Scoutmaster or Treasurer Scott Vice.

sportsballsScouts and Sports together make a balanced diet of activities! Scouting is flexible enough for a Scout to excel at both, and many Scouts do. Scouting encourages a well-rounded balance of activities, and a Scout doesn’t have to attend every Scouting event.  No one should have to feel that it is "Scouts verus Sports" situation.
Troop 145 supports its Scout players in various sports thoughout the seasons!  As Troop 145 starts a new Scout Year and should a Scout be unavailable for Monday meetings or other activities,  please stay in communication with your Patrol Leaders and Scoutmaster so we can all be your "cheering section"  in Sport AND in Scouting!  As always, we look forward to your attendance to any of the planned troop activities!
