The Holidays are just around the corner...and that means Selling Wreaths!

It's time to help raise some money for the troop and to help defray cost of camps and High Adventures. There are two ways to participate - and you can do one or both. The Traditional Program and GiftItForward which is entirely online - a great option for out of town family and friends who want to support scouts.
Scout Ordered – Traditional Program:
• Scouts reach out to neighbors or friends virtually or using door hangers and take orders.
• Scouts use order form and collect cash or check from each buyer and turn in to Troop 129 by October 26.
• Checks should be made out to BSA Troop 129.
• Wreaths arrive week of November 22-26 (hopefully!) Scouts come to Westminster Presbyterian to retrieve and deliver to their customers.

Online sales - GiftItForward:
• The scout directs people to GiftItForward.com and the whole transaction is done online.
• The scout can reach out to people virtually, or use door hangers, and direct them to this program.
• Need to use the troop’s code: TR129VA001, and the buyer puts in the scout’s name.
• Each wreath sold yields a flat $8 to the scout.
• Products SHIPPED DIRECTLY to the buyer or the recipient.
• There is nothing turned in to Troop 129.

Troop Recharter and Troop Dues

Posted by jmbuchanan on Oct 4 2021 - 10:50pm

This year, we are being asked to report two months earlier than last year on which Scouts and Adults will be continuing with the troop next year.  It was announced at the Court of Honor last week that BSA registration fees and troop dues will be $120 for Scouts and $50 for Adult leaders and would be due October 5th which is tomorrow.  You have an option to pay via PayPal on the troop website OR bring/send a check to the troop meeting Tuesday evening.

MORE IMPORTANTLY:  Please let me know right now if you and/or your son will be continuing next year.  Knowing that you have paid or will be paying will help me tremendously with preparing our renewal package.  Please respond to me, Jim Buchanan at JimmieBuc@gmail.com

Be happy to answer any questions.
