UPDATE: Location of the meeting will be TUMC in the Parlor Room. Please enter through the office doors rather than the doors by the gym where we usually enter

On Saturday, October 31 (yes, Halloween!), there will be a scary Budget Meeting from 9 am-12 noon. Location: TUMC, Parlor Room. This is a closed meeting for Budget Owners only.

Who is a Budget Owner? A budget owner is the Adult Leader accountable for expenditures for the Troop in a particular category. This person is the Adult Leader for this area of the Troop for the coming year. If you are interested in volunteering for a role in the Troop, now would be an opportune time to have a say in your Budget. Any adult parent/guardian is eligible to volunteer.

After the Budget Meeting, the 2016 Budget will be presented at the next Committee Meeting where all parents/guardians are encouraged to attend to approve (or change) the proposed budget
