2.  Payment of T-54 dues.
Troop 54 collects dues annually to cover the expenses of the troop.  The dues are currently $305 for new scouts, minus the registration fee paid to BSA in Step 1. This payment is made at the T-54 Store at this link.  Click on "New Scout" or "Transfer Scout" (if from a Cub pack or another troop).  The initial dues are $220 for transferring scouts provided they are already registered for the current year with BSA.  New scouts will receive a T-54 neckerchief, handbook and other items upon joining.

This fee also covers the registration fee for one parent if that adult wishes to be a registered BSA leader.  If a second parent wants to also be a registered BSA leader, there is an additional $50 fee.

Scholarships:  Parents of Scouts in need of financial assistance may contact either the Troop Committee Chair (Alan Clark) or the Scoutmaster (Eric Lokker) to discuss needs.  More information is contained in the Troop Handbook at this link.
