Letter to Parents

Hello Parents of Scouts,

As you may know the 2015 Holiday sales event is on.  I would like to stress the importance of this sale.  

This is the only fundraiser that we ask you to go out and sell something. It is also our primary source of income for the troop. All the money goes directly to the troop. It helps us offset all the camping we do, buys our equipment, and allows scholarships to those who need them.  

We Pride ourselves for having a well equipped Troop and leaving no scout behind due to funding. I've been in scouting a very long time and can't stress how lucky this troop is to have a very good committee, leadership, equipment, and parent participation. I have friends in other towns, in other troops who are not so lucky.  

With that said, we really need a strong year in sales. The till is low and needs to be replenished.

Now is the time to get them out there and sell. Once your Scout makes a sale it's good to keep the sales sheet for next year. This way they can make much easier and quick sales for next year. More often than not the same people will buy a product from us.  

We really need each scout to step up and sell at lease 25-items. (Combine wreath, candles, donations). We found in the past that some scouts work very hard at sales, and some sell hardly anything. It's a team effort. When the whole team/troop participate, everyone wins. 

Thank You,
Kevin Goldsmith
Troop 1775 Scoutmaster
