Wreath Sale Deadline October 21st

Wreath Sale Deadline October 21st

Hello Troop 82 Parents & Scouts,

Welcome to another year of wreath sales.  I know it's the end of August but it's time to start selling holiday greens!  Start contacting your neighbors, family and friends.

You can start selling today.  There will be copies of the Flyers with all prices and order info at Troop meetings starting September 1st but they are also attached to this email.  Use the Holiday Greens Order Form to list your customers and what they have ordered.  Use the Annual Troop 82 Flyer to leave in the doors of your neighbors if you prefer to sell that way - just make sure your name and number is on the Annual Troop Flyer so you get credit for those sales.

Remember to collect payment at the time of the order.  Checks should be made out to Boy Scout Troop 82.

Orders are due by Wednesday, October 21st.  By this date, please turn in the Holiday Greens Order Form to Mrs. Odom (807 S. Poplar) or bring to the troop meeting on the 20th.  Money must be turned in with your order - checks only - NO CASH.  Early orders are always appreciated.  NO LATE ORDERS PLEASE.

The total order delivery will be made to the Odom house the week before Thanksgiving (11/19 or 11/20).  Scouts will be notified when the orders will be available for pickup.  You can expect they will be ready Saturday 11/21 or Sunday 11/22.  Please do your best to get the orders to your customers before Thanksgiving Day.

100% of your profits will go into each scout's personal account.  Most people decorate for the holidays.  This is an easy way to make some money because people may buy a wreath anyway so why not from the Boy Scouts?  I challenge each of you to sell at least 3 items.  The money that goes into your accounts can be used for dues, camping trips and outings, high adventure trips, or to purchase scouting and camping equipment.  The money is yours to use for Boy Scouts.

Good luck to you and if you have any questions, please let me know by email ( or call me at 630-279-8844.
