Kickoff Meeting for Troop 407 2017-2018 Scouting Year (JKM)
Wear your full Class A uniform.  Let's start this year looking sharp!
This will be an important information sharing time for everyone planning to be involved in Troop 407 during this coming year.
All Scouts must bring: 
  • At least one parent, preferably both
  • $75 annual dues: make checks to "Troop 407, BSA"
  • Updated Scout Profile information forms which were sent to you in the mail.  Please provide us with all of the requested information.  Many forms that we must file with the Council throughout the year require this information and it is much easier to collect it all now.  Legible entries in a brightly colored pen will greatly ease data entry.
  • If you did not attend summer camp with us, a new complete Annual Health and Medical Record.
Those scouts (First Class and above) interested in running for SPL or ASPL, come prepared to speak about your qualifications and ideas.
