2023 Council and Troop Dues

Posted on Aug 24 2022 - 7:52am

We wanted to take a moment of your time during this busy “Back to School” season for a quick reminder about dues.  As you may remember, we pay dues to both Council (National & Michigan Crossroads combined) and our Troops.  The Troop Dues cover things like rank advancements, merit badges, awards, adults on camp outs, gear, events and overall expenses to keep the troops running.  The Council dues are necessary to remain chartered through Scouts BSA.  The decision has been made to step away from the online payment method we used in the past and go back to cash or check.  There were numerous issues with the online system each year that took months to resolve … if they were ever truly resolved.  Below are the amounts you can expect to be billed this fall.

Merit Badge Councilors Needed! Our Plea for Help ...

Posted on Jul 23 2022 - 9:57pm

We would like to start by Thanking the people that stuck with us while we worked through the Merit Badge Counselor issues with Council over the last year!  It wasn't easy .. & often VERY frustrating, but we are FINALLY seeing traction.  The Good News is we are on getting new Merit Badges loaded to profiles in a timely fashion (Yes!  Jeff C is loaded back on system!).  We're even seeing new applications loaded into ScoutBook (Yay .. Eric S is there!).  The Bad News is we now have large gaps in our approved MBC list.  Here’s what we’ve found out:

BSA Troop # 345

    American Legion Post 451
    Ada & Cascade, MI
    meetings at Forest Hills Presbyterian Church
    Michigan Crossroads Council Council
