Dear Scouts and Parents:

Every year we hold a fund raiser. We are expecting every scout to sell at least 15 items. Incentives are in place at 26 items: (dinner cooked, served and cleaned up by adult leaders on a campout). 30 Items: ($30.00 Eastern Mountain Sports gift cards.) 
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 29th, collect the payment now (cash or checks) and turn in their orders and payment on October 29th at the Troop meeting. Wreaths will be made available for your pick-up and your delivery to your customers just before Thanksgiving. 
Attached below is the 2015 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 INTERNAL ORDER SUMMARY SHEET.  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)

Yours in scouting,
