The annual wreath sale deadline is quickly approaching. All orders and money are due Monday Oct. 21.
As our primary fundraiser there is still time to get more orders. We are not participating in a sale at the Lions Club this year and will not have those profits. That means each sale you make means that much more. Have you?

Returned to houses if no one was home when you first started selling?
Advertised on your family's social media accounts? Remember to ask permission.
Called family and friends near and far? Wreaths can be shipped. The gift order form is attached and on our website: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1FdqwN6TnN5-DLLHCE4wZdu0myBqdRNIX

The long weekend is a great time to add to your orders. Hope you're able to get out selling.

See you on Monday with your completed, double checked form and money.

Reminder that we are asking all parents to stay while their scout’s order is verified. This is to make sure everything is correct and paid for.

Thank you for your support and especially to those that volunteered to help verify orders!

BSA changes that will affect Troop 626. Please read

BSA MEMBERSHIP FEE TO INCREASE, RECHARTERING DELAYED, ADDITIONAL HARD COPY AUTHORIZATIONS REQUIRED
We want to share some recently released information from the National BSA organization. We were informed in late September that the national member registration fee will likely be increased for 2020. Although we have not been informed what the new fee will be or of the full details behind the change, it is a move to put the fee more in line with actual costs versus those subsidized by philanthropic efforts. This is a change happening in many organizations to reflect shifts in the giving community and consumer preferences (paying full costs up front rather than coming back for additional, optional requests). We have been piloting a version of this fee model in one of our districts for the past few years.

This will obviously affect our rechartering and new member registrations in the near future. We apologize for the challenges this creates but are committed to do our best to minimize the disruption as we support sustainable Scouting operations. This will include increasing the amount and availability of our current registration scholarship funds to help ensure all children can gain the benefits of Scouting.

As we continue to seek answers, we believe the best path forward is to delay Unit Charter Renewal until we know what the new fee is and we can effectively communicate it. Recharter trainings scheduled for October are now delayed. As soon as we receive information on the fees, timelines and process, we will share it directly with unit leaders.

Leaders will also receive new, required authorization paperwork for criminal background checks from National BSA that will need to be submitted in hard-copy form as part of the rechartering process.

We will share membership fee details here as soon as they become available, which we have been told will likely to be in late October. Please continue to watch this website and our council communications for updates.

Even though we face challenges, our strong focus is, and continues to be, welcoming youth and families to join Scouting. Thousands of new youth and families will join our program over the coming days and weeks, Scouts BSA camp attendance was up, and we’re excited to share with everyone the fun, adventure and life-enriching experiences of Scouting.

CONTACT US
Kent York
Director of Marketing/Communications
612-261-2437
kyork@northernstar.org

Troop 626 will keep you updated as we receive more information.
Please plan to fill out a new application for a BACKGROUND check. All leaders and people on our charter will need to complete prior to rechartering.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Sincerely,
Anne Moe
Committee Chair, 626
