The wreaths are here!

This weekend you should see Troop 35 scouts scurrying around your neighborhood delivering wreaths and holiday cheer. They worked hard to sell their wreaths and now they will be delivering them. That’s a lot of fun and a lot of work!

If you didn’t order a wreath or greenery to decorate your home – don’t despair, Troop 35 will be selling at our traditional holiday retail locations beginning Friday November 29th at 9AM.

  • Dominick’s @ Danada East parking lot between KFC and IHOP
  • Gary United Methodist @ 224 N. Main St, Wheaton, IL 60187

From the Scout Handbook – “A SCOUT IS THRIFTY. A Scout works to pay his way and to help others. He saves for the future. He protects and conserves natural resources. He carefully uses time and property.”

Each scout earned money they can use to ‘pay their own way’ whether it’s troop dues, summer camp, or high adventure like Sea Base, Philmont Scout Ranch, or next summer’s trip to the Boundary Waters and a week’s worth of back country camping and canoeing.

Take a look at the fun on these faces – you gotta wanna!
