Beavers – Last Week’s presentation and Link to Online Event Fee Payment Site

Dear Beaver Scout Parents,

Thanks to those who attended the parents’ meeting last week. For those who were not there, we also handed out progress reports from Scoutstracker and a badge information booklet to all the youth.

Please find attached a copy of the presentation I gave. As I said, we are looking for volunteers to register and help our group at regular meetings. Part-Time is fine! Volunteers who help our group for an entire year will receive a 50% rebate on their registration fee (paid at the end of the year).

I have also attached a two-page document describing the different features in Scoutstracker that you may find helpful. Scoutstracker can be accessed from

Online event fee payment and Debit/Credit Card Payment

You can now pay Winter-Spring event fees and meeting dues with debit/credit in person with Square at our meetings, or ONLINE using our store! Click here to access the store ! Please note that Fees and Dues purchased with Square include a surcharge to cover their service fees.

If your Balance (in Scoutstracker) is not correct, please let me know and I’ll double check my records.
