Pack Dues for 2012 – 2013 Scouting Year…

Hello Pack 471 Parents!

September and October is when we ask that all returning scout families pay for their scout’s pack dues for the year. The pack dues are:

$75.00 for a returning scout
$50.00 for a returning sibling scout (Total of $125.00 for both)

(note the cost difference for paying via Paypal is to cover the PayPal service fees)

If you pay by check, you can make that out to “Pack 471”, but if you check out our PayPal link on the website, you can pay via PayPal or credit card.

And, we now can accept credit cards at the Pack meetings! So no more worries about forgetting your check book!

Our next two pack meetings will be September 11th and October 9th, and we hope to see you there!

Updated Pack Calendar

We have updated the Pack Calender, and we have posted it here
