It’s that time of the year again! The troop’s fundraiser has kicked off. This is
the only fundraiser we have to fund the Troop’s activities. What is unique is
that this fundraiser can fund your trips as well! We would like every scout to
sell at least 12 wreaths.
Wreaths are $20 and stands are $2. These are Douglas Fir Wreaths grown in
Pennsylvania, and delivered to us the day after Thanksgiving.
As usual, you can earn Scout Points for each wreath you sell. The point
distribution is as follows:
||2 / wreath
||3 / wreath
Wreath sales from a family of Scouts/Scouters will be combined to establish
point awards. However, each scout/scouter must report their sales individually
to establish scout point distribution among family members.
Points can be redeemed for scouting trips. Scouts have been known to pay for
summer camp from wreath sales! This is a busy time of year, but work now can
result in a lot of free trips! The money from this fundraiser supports the troop
and is mainly used to purchase equipment.
Smile and be friendly. Be sure to explain that the wreath is a quality product;
not only is the customer getting a beautiful holiday decoration but is
supporting a good cause as well!
Personalize it! Let your customer know that the proceeds help the troop buy and
maintain camping equipment and helps defray costs of scouting activities. (Tell
them about the great trips we take!)
Please get cash or check in advance. Checks should be payable to
"BSA Troop 152". Though, previous customers accustomed to pay on delivery are

Then, you can drop it all off on the wreath table at the weekly scout meeting.
