Wreath sales and annual dues

Good afternoon Scout parents,

I wanted to let you all know about our Holiday wreath sales and upcoming annual dues.

Scouts we given the order brochure and form for the wreath sales at the end of last nights meeting. We are selling only 2 items from the brochure, the 22 inch Noble Fir Wreath (item# W2) for $25.00 and the Centerpiece (item# C5) for $15.00. Sherwood Forest Farms only ships items in cases with the same product so we do need to limit what items we have available. Orders are due back by October 29. The wreaths will be delivered the week following Thanksgiving and will be made available for distribution the day they are received. I will deliver them to you if needed.

***Direct Delivery (the red side of the envelope) is not available as they are more expensive for buyers due to shipping cost and there is a minimum number of pieces that we must order for this option.***

The Committee has set the cost for 2019 Annual Dues. Due to the new Council fee(paid as Friends of Scouting) and due to the increased cost of our program the annual dues have raised to $205.00. I know this is a considerable increase but there are payment options. You may pay the full $205.00 OR you can take advantage of the new payment schedule:

$100.00 due by our Nov 5 meeting
$35.00 due by our Feb 4 meeting
$35.00 due by our May 6 meeting
$35.00 due by our Aug 5 meeting

If your Scout has fundraising you may apply the available amount in their Scout account to the annual dues. If you choose to use fundraising money please let me know and I will make the necessary adjustments in the Scout account showing the amount paid through fundraising.

If you have any questions regarding wreaths or annual dues please email me or see me at the meeting.
