The Christmas Wreath fundraiser event is the most profitable and involved event we have. It is important for the success of this event that we have full cooperation from the boys as well as the parents.
We did reduce the wreath order from previous years in hopes of wrapping up the effort over the course of 2 weekends.
We will begin our sales this weekend Saturday December 4 and 5th and ask that boys make themselves available between the hours of 8:30am and 6pm both days. All scouts are expected to be in full uniform. Lunch for both days will be supplied by the troop
You will find a number of attachments to this letter which are explained below.
1- OLA BSA Troop23 Selling Sheet, This sheet is to be used for placing your child’s order. We are asking that each Scout make an effort to sell a minimum of 10 wreaths. Every wreath sold in advance is one less we will need to sell on the street so these sales are preferred and beneficial to all. The order sheet and payment should be returned this weekend December 4 and 5th. Since we were little late setting up sale this year ,they may be turned it at Monday’s meeting.
2- Sales Schedule /Calendar, Scouts are expected to contribute in the fundraising efforts’. Each scout will need to contribute 15 hours towards the sale of the wreaths. Parents are also needed to volunteer. Use the attached schedule to indicate the time slots that work best for your schedule. Although every effort will be made to accommodate the times you have requested we may need to make changes as needed to have coverage. December 4h and 5th is the Christmas village and usually our best sales weekend. We will need as much help during this weekend as possible. We will also need help on Saturday December 11 for 1 hour after the 5pm mass and Sunday December 12 from 8:30
We understand that asking of this time of you and you son before the holiday may be an imposition however, the funds raised help us keep your out of pocket expenses to a minimum.
