Holiday Wreath Fund Raiser.
Key Dates...

INCENTIVES PROGRAM
We've design the incentive plan plateaus so that once you've reached a level, you'll realize that its not really that hard to jump to the next level.
  • 15 Wreaths minimum expected from any scout.
  • Ice Cream Party for the Troop, if troop exceeds 350
  • Sell 26+ Scout gets dinner cooked, served and cleaned up by adult leaders on a campout.
  • Sell 30+ Scout gets an $30 Gift card
  • Top Selling Scout (over 30 wreaths) awarded Official BSA 346 Vantage Pocket Knife
Scouts and Parents:
 
Every year we hold a Holiday Wreath fund raiser. We are expecting every scout to sell at least 15 items.  

Alternatively every $15.00 collected as a cash donation counts as (1) item sold.
 
The most successful salesmen don't wait until the last minute and start selling immediately. (part of being prepared). Selling 15 items is easy and our goal is to have every scout in the troop qualify for the dinner to be cooked and served by the adult leaders by selling 26 items. 

Here's how it works: 
Scouts pre-sell wreaths now through October 22nd, collect the payment now (cash or checks) and turn in their orders and payment on October 22nd at the Troop meeting. (parent volunteers needed to check in orders)  Wreaths will be made available for your pick-up and your delivery to your customers just before Thanksgiving.
 
Attached is the 2020 Wreath Fund Raiser Flyer which you may print out and distribute to friends, neighbors, teachers, co-workers. Remember Scout Youth protection policies apply. The most popular item is the 25 inch Classic.

Please keep track of who you sell your wreaths to and keep this information for your delivery. All we want back from you is all the payments (cash and checks) and the corresponding ORDER TRACKING FORM (Excel or PDF).  Please cross check your order and indicate the total number of each item you are ordering along with the corresponding total of the funds in your envelope. Pick up of items will be on or about the Monday before Thanksgiving.  (location TBA)
