Annual Pack Dues are PAST Due!

Posted on Oct 14 2017 - 12:47pm

Pack Dues are now past due! We will soon start the recharter process and need everyone to pay their dues ASAP so we can re-register your Scout with Boy Scouts of America. If you have not paid your dues please send a check or money order made out to "Pack 281" to Tim Belt, 12044 Gold Arbor Lane, Gold River, CA 95670. For continuing Scouts the cost is $80, for Webelos II the cost is $20, for Scouts who just joined and paid the $90 joining fee you have paid your dues for the year. Recently we learned that BSA has increased the national dues they charge for each Scout and Scouter. Rather than increase the the Pack 281 dues the decision was made, by the pack committee, to make "Boy's Life" subscription optional rather than to have it part of the pack dues. If your son would like to continue to receive "Boy's Life" there will be an additional $12 fee which is due when you pay the pack dues, new Scouts will also need to pay this fee if they want to receive the magazine subscription in the coming year. Tim can be contacted at 916-508-0790 or tim_belt@hotmail.com
