Thank you to those that filled out a FOS pledge card at the Court of Honor last week that will save me a lot of follow up calls in the coming weeks/months. I understand that some of you may not have known what you wanted to donate or are waiting for end of the year to figure out your taxes or maybe looking into Company matches/donations. Whatever the case may be I need to follow up with each family to make sure they have the opportunity to help support Scouting by the May 15, 2020 deadline.
The Northern Star Council, BSA set a goal for the Boys Troop 9626 which also includes the Crew 9626 of $9,850. So far, we have raised close to $3,500. If we do not meet the goal we would have to pay for Merit Badges and Rank Awards which would total about $1,250 for the year that would come out of the Troop budget.
I still have a lot of pledge cards in my possession because it was not picked up at the Court of Honor Meeting. I will be bringing these cards to upcoming Troop Meetings to pass out to you or your Scout to get returned to me. If I do not get a completed pledge card back from you, I will have to follow up with phone calls to see if you wish to participate in the FOS campaign.
Another way to participate is online with the NorthernStar Council link (see below) that I set up for our Troop:
God Bless and Happy Holidays!
Yours in Scouting,
FOS Chair, Troop/Crew 9626 & Troop 7626
