Summer Camp Fundraiser Signup – Mulch Spreading – Please Sign Up

Registration –>>     (Please note this does not count for volunteer service for rank advancement)

Parents and Scouts,

The troop has been blessed with the opportunity to participate in a fundraising activity to help offset the cost of the summer camp bus.  Troop 25 is selling mulch and T221 will be spreading it for those who purchase the service.  We’ll make $2 per bag and we are aiming to spread about 1,200 bags!  1/3 of what we collect will go into the passbook accounts of the boys who participate, the other 2/3 will go directly toward the bus cost.

Please save the morning of Saturday, March 20th, probably at 8 AM (exact start time will depend on when truck is at location delivering mulch and time it takes for T25 to get loaded to depart on routes to deliver to customers)  The time it takes to spread depends on the number of scouts, adult drivers, number of homes and routes.  We’ll meet at 17 Acres where crews and drivers will receive route information (weather Permitting).  If the weather is poor, the mulch truck will not deliver. If this is the case, the event will be pushed to the following Saturday, March 27.  (In this inclement weather case we will move our troop campout from the 27th back to March 20th and camp, rain or shine.)

What to bring – mask, gloves, rakes, positive attitudes, sense of urgency and water bottles.  No Open Toed Shoes, and Covid-19 Precautions will be in full effect.  Dress appropriately for the weather.

If you are an adult driver you will not need a truck – just have space enough for rakes and for your crew.

We need as many hands as we can get.  Even if you aren’t going to summer camp please consider helping as this will assist our Troop.

If you would like to buy mulch please visit the T25 website, scroll to the bottom of the page for Mulch:   Don’t forget the spreading service so T221 gets a piece of the action.  It’s an additional $2 per bag and the troop get’s 100% of that!   The mulch is only available for people west of 75, unless you have a very large order or can go together with several neighbors to get a large order together.

Yours in Scouting,

Frank Buercklin
