Articles Amended

On April 13, 2013 the Articles of Association were amended (Amendment 4.)  Article VII, Paragraph 2 was changed to read: “Dues for the upcoming fiscal year must be established by April 15th. Yearly membership will take effect on September 1st and end August 31st of the following year. Current members may pay dues at any time prior to the August 31st due date to extend their membership. Dues paid after June 1st will automatically go into effect through the following fiscal year.”  This change was made to simplify and streamline dues collection via online methods.  (To view the Articles of Association, go to the Files page where the original and current document is posted.)

The Chief Visits Camp

Chief Scout Executive, Wayne Brock (left), visited Camp Boddie* on June 29th.  Wayne served on the Camp Bonner Staff from 1972-75.  This was his first visit to camp in 37 years.  He was quite impressed with the improvements to the camp facilities.
