ANNUAL WREATH SALE

Tis the season for wreath selling!!  The Troop 106 Annual wreath sale will be held this weekend, Saturday, November 28th and Sunday, November 29th.  As in the past, each scout is REQUIRED to purchase 3 wreaths (5 wreaths for a family with more than one scout) & do one selling shift.  We will be in 3 locations – Artis Drugs, Resurrection Ascension & Our Lady of Hope.  The price of the wreaths are $18 per wreath.  We need both scouts to sell and adult volunteers to supervise.   Please see the open shifts below.  

Wreath prep will be held on Friday, November 28th at Trinity starting at 6PM.  It is recommended that Scouts do not come in uniform that evening.  We will also need some help unloading the truck earlier that afternoon.  Please let Anthony know if you are available to assist.  

Please keep in mind that this is our ONLY troop fundraiser annually.  It helps keep us solvent while keeping the cost of the program down.  We really need all the help we can get, from ALL of our Troop 106 family.
