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.

Updates

Good Evening everybody, hope all is well and safe with everybody. I am writing because as you may or may not know, the mayor announced today that all NYC Public Schools will close as of tomorrow for an undefined period of time. As of right now this does not effect the Troop Meetings or activities. We will continue to have in-person meetings. The wreath sale, will take place as scheduled on the weekend of November 28th and 29th.

On another note, I want to thank all those scouts and adults will came and volunteered last weekend with the Our Lady of Hope St. Vincent DePaul Society Thanksgiving Drive.

Christmas Wreath Flyer

Hello Everyone,

On Saturday, November 28, Troop 106 will be continuing our long historic tradition of selling Christmas Wreaths as the Troop’s one and only fundraiser.  As I’m sure you already know selling shifts for all Scouts is mandatory unless you’ve spoken to Anthony.  If you would like to volunteer to work as shift, please speak with Anthony to sign up.

Every Scout is required to sell 3 Christmas Wreaths.  If your family has two or more Scouts in the troop, then the amount to sell is 5.  We understand that with everything happening this year, if this is a problem for you, please speak to us.

Attached, is our flyer announcing the Wreath Sale, please feel free to share it by posting it to your social media websites, especially those associated with Middle Village and the surrounding neighborhoods.
