Thank you for being a part of Troop 16 and supporting Boys Scouts of America.   One of the ways you show your support is by annually renewing your membership in the troop and BSA by paying your recharter fees for both scouts and registered adults.  The recharter amounts are: $27 for first scout, which includes a yearly subscription to Boys Life magazine, and $15 for each additional scout and each adult.  In addition, all adults must have their current YPT on file. Please make sure you are not dropped from the roster.  The deadline to have all fees turned in and adult training completed is January 31st.  Thank you in advance for making sure the troop’s recharter process goes smoothly.   If you have any questions, please contact Deb Worby.  Again, thank you and Happy 2012!
