Christmas Tree Pickup Fundraiser


The boys in Troop 55 will be picking up trees at your curb and recycle it on the weekends of 4-5 JAN2020, 11-12JAN2020, and 18-19JAN2020.  You will need to sign up for a specific weekend and can do so by emailing Troop55TreePickup@gmail.com or calling 860-227-1164.  A small donation is appreciated to help keep our activities going.  If you choose to donate, we recommend letting us know in your email/phone call on if you want us to come to your door or leave it in an envelope in your mailbox.  Some attach it in a ziplock bag to the tree if they will not be home, but don't leave the tree directly in front of your house for security reasons.  Thanks for all of the Clinton Community help in keeping our youth active!

ANNUAL DUES ARE DUE ON OR BEFORE 1NOV19


Make checks payable to "Troop 55".  The first boy is $120 and all additional boys are $110, but if the second scout does not want their own copy of the Boys Life magazine, then as low as $98 for each additional scout.  This covers:  $33 national registration fee, $12 Boys Life magazine, $36 CT Rivers Council activity and insurance fees.  For the remaining portion that goes to Troop 55, we use that to pay for the Class B Tshirts, Scout Handbooks, tents, camping supplies, and awards like merit badges. Payment Plans can be set up with the Treasurer, no scout will be left behind due to lack of funds.
