Kiwanis Club's 4th of July Parade in Danville - ADULT LEAD VOLUNTEER NEEDED
The Kiwanis Club of San Ramon is the Troop's Charter Organization. Without this organization, Troop 216 could not be a Boy Scout Troop. Let's support the Kiwanis Club! Their annual 4th of July Parade is a popular family event. Troop volunteers will get a free breakfast at Pete's Brass Rail and then assist with set up. Breakfast starts at 6AM, immediately followed by instructions / assignments at 6:30AM. An advantage to being there early is that you can be there for the start of the parade! Want to make it an even better family or Scouting event?!? Get Scout families and friends meeting at the Alamo Plaza and ride your bikes! Scouts, Adults and Siblings are needed! Sign up on the Troop website.

Changes to Troop Policy

Posted on May 8 2016 - 10:04pm

Collection of Payments:  We are grateful to have a bookkeeper, Sawako Donohue to assist the troop with collection of payments.  All payments will be collected from 7:00 pm to 7:30 pm at Tuesday troop meetings by the troop bookkeeper.  If you are paying by check, be sure to include a note in the memo section regarding what the payment is for.  Please submit cash payments in a labeled envelope, indicating the scout name(s) and what the payment is for.

 Collection of Forms/Paperwork:  The Troop Form Collection Box with labeled folders will be available at all troop meetings.  Scouts and parents are asked to place all forms/paperwork in the corresponding labeled file. The committee chair will be on hand the first few meetings to assist scouts and parents with learning this new process.

 Mileage Reimbursements:  We so appreciate our carpool drivers.  In order to improve the reimbursement process, drivers will be reimbursed using the attached reimbursement form.  Drivers are asked to complete the form and submit within 6 weeks of an outing. After this time any unclaimed carpool fees will be considered a donation to the troop and be used to maintain and purchase camping gear. Blank forms will be available in the Troop Form Collection Box.  

 Thanks for your assistance with our implementation of these new policies.  Please contact the committee chair if you have any questions or concerns.
