Troop 35 Newsflash

Wreath Sales

We are in the final two weeks of sales in wreath fundraising. Remember the Troop and the Scout both benefit from wreath sales. It is the method by which we get the Scouts and the Troop to where they wish to go on their adventures!

Reminder – all wreath orders and money is due October 23, 2012
