Boy Scouts Troop 224 is now registered with the Kroger Community Rewards Program

kroger logoFor those who shop at Kroger, you probably know the Kroger makes contributions to local non profit organizations throughout their service areas via the Kroger Community Rewards (KCR). Boy Scout Troop 224 has now completed registering with the KCR Program.

Scouting families, friends and relatives can select the Troop as the local organization that will benefit from their shopping at Kroger. The KCR award amount is based on the number of families who link their Kroger Plus card to the BSA Troop 224 account and the amount of shopping while using the Kroger Plus card. Past experience with another non profit organization with a modest number of families linking their cards was quite positive. Funds received from Kroger will go toward Troop operations and scouting activities for our boys.

The instructions here describe how to link your Kroger Plus card number to the Troop.

Troop 224 Recharter Event Starts November 6th, 2017

The annual chartering of the Troop and renewal of registration of every scout and
adult leader will begin at the November 6th regular Troop 224 meeting and Troop
Committee meeting at Grace Lutheran Church. As part of the annual chartering
each family and adult leader will be asked to fill out a contact information sheet.
Good News!! The registration fee has been reduced to $75 per youth scout for the
2018 scout year. More Good News!! Many scouts participated in community
service at the Oak Ridge Rowing Association (ORRA) regattas throughout the rowing
season. Each scout who participated earned a Service Hours Credit that will be used
to further reduce his yearly registration fee. The Service Hours Credit for each scout
was based on the number of hours provided by that scout. The specific credit for
each scout will be on the reregistration form handed out November 6th.
Please return the form by December 4th, 2017.

Note – Re-registration forms will be handed out at the November 6th meeting of the
Troop Committee and to Scouts at the end of the regular Troop meeting. In addition,
the forms will be available at each Troop meeting in November, and the forms will
be posted on our web site under Resources along with a summary of the Service
Hours Credit for each scouts who participated in the service to the ORRA.

Contact Cam Hubbard,
Treasurer, at Camden.hubbard@comcast.net if you have any questions.
