If a little kid in uniform rings your doorbell this week, he (or she) is not an early trick or treater. It may seem too soon to think about it, but the holidays will be on us before you know it. And Southborough Cub Scouts are holding their annual holiday fundraiser.
Pack 1 & 926 scouts have divvied up their streets for door-to-door sales of Christmas wreaths and Hanukkah candles. Sales begin today.
The Cub Scout Annual Holiday Door-to-Door Sale runs through Sunday November 17th. Southborough Cub Scouts will be pounding the pavement to sell evergreen wreaths and Hanukkah candles.
The wreaths are 18″ across and decorated with a red velvet bow. The candles are a box of 45 5.5 inch marbleized dripless Hanukkah candles. (click images to enlarge)
The price is $15 per wreath or box. Deliveries will be made by November 27th.
The holiday sale is the only pack-wide event to fund Cub Scout programming throughout the year.
There will be additional sales opportunities at special locations in Town after November 27th. But buying direct from a Cub Scout at your door can really make his day. So, keep an ear out for that knocking.
For those of you who aren’t interested in a wreath or candles, you can always support the scouts by making a donation to their troop instead.
Updated (10/23/19 7:13 am): Changed the first line, since Cub Scouts aren’t just boys anymore!
Just a gentle reminder that Cub Scouts is open to both boys and girls, and there are at least two girls in Pack 1 that I know of. :-)
Feel free to disregard my previous comment. The pronouns seem to be different in the article on the email summary vs the website. :-)
As I noted in the update on the bottom of the post – initially, the post did refer to boys. I changed it after I was reminded that Cub Scouts now includes girls.
Would somebody from Pack 926 please contact me, via email, re the wreath sale.
