ravinlunachick Posted February 3, 2012 Share Posted February 3, 2012 subsidize field trips? Let's say a non council-sponsored event costs $20/girl. Does your troop cover any of that, or do the parents have to pay the full cost? Our former troop was brand spanking new, and had almost no money, so parents had to foot the entire bill. This troop is established, AND we pay $10 every month for dues. We only meet twice a month (free meeting space), and I just can't figure out why they won't help with the costs. I've brought it up a few times, but they just ignore me and never answer. :confused: The only thing they've spent money on is $5 worth of badges for our 3 Brownies, and we've been paying dues since October! The leaders and another mom spent the entire meeting time tonight discussing cookie booth sales. The girls just ran wild and did nothing, absolutely nothing. They don't do an opening or closing ceremony...sigh. I'm just fed up. I said I'd stick it out till the end of May, and that's what we'll do, but, I feel cheated out of the experience we could have had. The girls have only even earned one fun patch, for goodness sake!
