Our St. Mary, Star of the Sea Cub Scout Pack is selling Christmas tree and wreath as part of a fundraiser! These beautiful, fresh cut Christmas trees and handmade wreaths, swags and garland are available for pre-sale through November 14th.
These trees are amazing and come directly from a farm in Oregon. The trees are so fresh that sometimes they are delivered with snow still on the branches! These trees are different than what you find at the tree lots in town or the store. They are nursery quality, premium trees, hand selected, cut, loaded and delivered within a few days and not sitting in storage for weeks before purchase.
Already have an artificial tree, cannot pick up the tree, or you live out of the area? No worries, you can help support us and a military family! The Trees for Troops program gives a donated tree to a military family and we keep a portion for our fundraising efforts, it is a win-win for everyone. There are even wreaths and swag available for purchase should you not want a tree.
If you plan to purchase a tree this year, please consider purchasing one to support our Scouts. Not only will you receive an awesome tree for your family to gather this Christmas, you are supporting our programs.
We all cherish our family pictures, so please don’t miss the opportunity to capture this particular “moment in time” for your family. Whether you need a new family portrait for your Christmas card, a gift for your children’s grandparents, or a photograph on the living room wall, come make a memory with us here at St. Mary’s this holiday season.
