Wreath Sales
A Scout is Thrifty. A Scout works to pay his own way and to help others. He saves for the future. He protects and conserves natural resources. He carefully uses time and property. Thrifty is the ninth point of the Scout Law – immediately after Cheerful and right before Brave.

Our only troop fundraiser is wreath sales and we do it just once a year. The money from this fundraiser goes to support your troop. It pays for equipment, trailer repairs, and more – enables us to keep our troop operational. It also helps scouts pay their way for Summer camp, High Adventure trips and any other scouting activities. Sales are down compared to this time last year. Please get out there and do your part. You Gotta Wanna!!!

This past week’s contest was the 26″ Noel Wreath. Our winner was Brandon B. who sold 5 units. Way to Go Brandon – You gotta Wanna! Also please note that the last date for wreath money turn in is Tues Oct 28th.

    Saturday October 18th between 11 AM and 5PM you can get on the air for the annual amateur radio event JOTA. Jamboree on the Air is a world-wide event with scouts talking to scouts using amateur radio stations. This year we will operate from my home ham station at 0N751 Woods Ave in Wheaton. Let me know if you would like to get on the air and at what time? Small groups of 2 or 3 would be preferred for about two hours at a time if there are many that are interested.
