Christmas Wreath Sale!

posted Nov 6, 2017, 5:00 AM by Web Master

Hi Troop 75 Families!!!! Its that time of year again, Wreath Sale time!  Please see the Parent Letter for full details.

We have some big changes.  We have 3 new items on the sale sheet this year.  A Candy Cane shaped door decoration, a Table Top Tree and a Holiday Bushel Basket.  See attached color Flyer that you can print out and show.  We have put aside the Deluxe wreath and the Kissing Balls.

Deliveries will also be different this year.  For the new items, we are putting in the order when you hand in the order.  They will be delivered shortly after.  All other items are pre-ordered and will be available by Nov 21, when orders are handed in. 

We will need help this year again with making the Centerpieces and Pine Cone decorations.  If you order Centerpieces you have to come down and help make them.  The dates we are making centerpieces/pine cones are in the Key Dates file attached here.

We also need help making bows for our First Class Wreaths and Table Top Trees.  Please see Julie or Ellen, in the committee room during or after the meetings for bow making supplies.  If you don't know how to make them, we can show you.  Its easy.  There is a video on you tube titled "Bow tying video for Wreath Troop 75" :

Once we get a date for the delivery we will post a sign up sheet for the offload.  Also keep an eye out for important information emailed from time to time.

Thank you for volunteering for our Troop!!!!!! Feel free to contact  Julie Battistie with any questions.
