2020/2021 Dues are OVERDUE

Posted by jbungerspiecha on Dec 15 2020 - 4:45pm

Troop dues for the 2020/2021 scouting year are now OVERDUE.  Letters were sent out on 10/26 and again on 11/23.   In spite of major increases at the National level for a third year in a row and the addition of local council fees this year, success in our fundraisers has allowed the troop dues to  remain at $170 for the fifth year in a row.  If you have not already, please remit your dues ASAP. Check made out to "Troop 121" send to
   Jon McConnachie
   14 Stacey Dr.
    Annandale NJ 08801. 
If you sold popcorn, your dues are reduced.  See the Dues letter or Jon M. for details.

Scouting For Food ~ December 5th and 12th

Posted by jbungerspiecha on Dec 10 2020 - 11:49am

The pantries are nearly empty and need our help to refill them for the holidays!  We are working with Pack 190 to help our community. We need everyone to help as we are doing this in a contactless method.  

We will collect the bags of donations that are left outside those same houses on Saturday (Dec. 12th) and bring them to the Open Cupboard.  Again, no contact with people so it is a very safe event for everyone. Remember to wear your mask. Thank you as we need to help out our community.  Remember your oath to help others at all times!
