Troop 502 Parent Meeting

On Monday, July 27th, we will have a troop parent meeting at 7 p.m. in front of Hammill Hall. Since we are meeting outside, please bring a chair to sit on. We are meeting to get parent thoughts and ideas on troop events and how we will proceed with meetings and outings while still under some COVID restrictions. We ask that all parents make an effort to attend as troop leadership continues to navigate a new normal for the scouts. Scouts are not required to attend this meeting.

Congratulations Seth!

Congratulations are in order for Seth Cobb-McGuffin, who successfully passed his Eagle BOR and earned the rank of Eagle on July 21, 2020. Seth is Troop 502’s 31st Eagle scout!

PLC Meeting tonight

The PLC meeting scheduled tonight will proceed as planned. Should the weather become more unsteady we will dismiss early.

PLC Meeting Monday

This is to advise that the PLC only will be meeting Monday July 20th at 7 p.m. in front of Hammill Hall. Please bring your own chair. Scouts should come prepared with their second set of meeting plans.

Summer Camp Refunds

This is to advise that all summer camps refunds have been issued. If you paid via debit or credit card, we were able to refund to your original method of payment. Since we made initial deposits of $100 back in Feb and the balance in March, you will see each refunded separately. Although we have completed refunds on our end, please allow time for your card issuer to process on their end.

If you paid with a personal check, then you will receive a troop check for the refund.

Summer Camp Refunds

We have just been advised that the troop refund check for cancelled summer camp has been mailed yesterday. Once it is received, we will advise a time for parents to pick up their refund check for the paid fees. If you had fundraiser credits applied to your camp payment, then they will go back on the books for your scout to utilize for another event. We thank you for your patience as staff at Camp Powhatan have also been working remotely and encountered delays in processing.
