COVID – 19 Update

Parents/Scouts, 

I hope this finds everyone safe and well. As the Covid-19 situation continues to evolve, we have been receiving guidance from BSA National and Mayflower Council. We are also staying in touch with our Chartered Organization- St. Mary’s, as well as state and local authorities to understand what additional actions are being taken within our community.

As a reminder, Troop activities continue to be suspended.  
Troop meetings at St. Mary’s scheduled for 3/26 and 4/2 are cancelled.

The status of other future events such as the Royalston Falls campout, will be determined soon.

The Troop Committee and Troop Leadership are investigating how we might be able continue with our program during these challenging times. 
In the meantime, Scouts are encouraged to work on Merit Badge and Rank Advancement requirements if possible. Document your work as you would do normally for review and sign off when activities resume.

Please direct any questions or concerns to me.
Thanks,John / Mr. Comisky

BSA Medical Forms

If your son attended Camp Resolute or the Maine High Adventure trip this past summer you do not need to complete a new medical form UNLESS something has changed in your son’s medical history.  For all others, the annual BSA medical form is attached and is required under BSA rules.  Unlike summer camp and high adventure forms, only a parent signature is required (we just need Parts A & B – Part C is for trips in excess of 72 hours).  Part A is an informed consent, release agreement, and authorization that must to be signed by every participant (or a parent and/or legal guardian for all youth under 18).  Part B is general information and a health history. 

Troop 4 Dues

Troop dues and medical forms are due no later than the December 5th troop meeting.  The combined troop and re-charter dues have increased by $20 this year to $145 per scout ($125 for additional siblings).  This fee combines the Troop dues ($43); the annual BSA National Registration fee ($60); Boys’ Life ($12) and the Mayflower Council program activity fee ($30).  The increase is due to an $27 increase in annual BSA National Registration Fee that was announced last month.

Please drop off your check at the start of the troop meeting. If your son(s) can’t make the meeting but would like to continue in the troop, please mail the dues to the Troop Treasurer, Mr. Tony Bogner.  Please make all checks payable to Troop 4.  As a courtesy to the troop and to assist in our planning, if your son does not plan to continue in our program, please have him contact me to convey his decision.
