Attention York District Unit Leaders! There is still time to complete the online portion of your annual recharter before Thanksgiving! Several units have done so already (thank you!) and many have started the process. Get this important task behind you now so you can enjoy your holidays without it looming over you. Even if you are waiting for your popcorn money to make payment you can still knock out the paperwork & signature part ahead of time. Remember there is NO GRACE PERIOD anymore and recharters are due in by Dec 15 so that all processing and error corrections can be completed by Dec 31. On Jan 1 all unchartered units will be dropped. All insurance and advancement ceases and new unit and individual apps for each scout and scouter are required to reinstate membership. This is a National directive, not a Pine Tree Council directive. Please don’t let this happen to any of our Packs, Troops or Crews! For help contact your district commissioner, Denis Hamann.
