  • Plant Sale 2015 - Mandatory Parent Meeting on March 4

    Dear Parents:

    Great planning, quality gear and adequate finances all contribute to the many terrific activities that Troop 258 enjoys throughout the year.  In order to continue this level of scouting, we must raise funds. Troop 258’s only fundraiser, our annual plant sale, will be held on April 3-5 (Easter weekend) and May 9-10 (Mother’s Day weekend). This is a mandatory troop activity, which we must all pitch-in to ensure a successful event.

    For 2015, each Scout will be required to sell plants for 10 hours of the plant sale. Your child can perform this all in one day or spread it out over several days of the sale and set-up. Each Scout must have a parent or guardian accompany them during the entire time they are working the plant sale. The family unit must complete its 10 hours to receive its benefit for the rest of the year.

    Please make plans to attend the following meeting to start the allocation of sign-up times. The hours of the sale will be available for review next week. 

    Meeting Date: March 4, 2015 at 7:30 PM

    Meeting Place: Echo Lake Park

    We will have four locations in Howell:

    ·       Arby’s on Rt. 9 South

    ·       Prince of Peace Church on Aldrich Road, just east of Rt. 9

    ·       Aldrich Elementary School on Aldrich Road, half a mile west of Rt. 9

    ·       Southard Elementary School on Kent Road, just west of Rt. 9

    To be fair in the assignment of sale times, time slots will be assigned by a random drawing on March 4. Those not attending the meeting will get a second chance for the remaining slots on March 11. Please come to the meeting with a few days/times in mind as there is no guarantee your first choice will be available.

    Each site will need one Site Coordinator at all times. The responsibilities of the Site Coordinator is to be the primary money handlers, make the site stays clean, and to sign people in and out. We will allocate time slots for Site Coordinator volunteers on a first come – first choice basis. Please let me know if you are interested in volunteering to be a site coordinator by March 3.  

    Please make sure you arrive 10 minutes before your start time so you can be briefed as to what is happening at that specific site, providing a seemless transition with the people who are finishing their time.

    If you need to change your hours, it will be your responsibility to:

    1.     Contact me to swap your shift for any open hours on the schedule. If none of the available times work for you:

    2.     You must find someone who is willing to swap hours. I will be more than happy to get you in touch with some people who might be willing to swap hours, but it is not the responsibility of the troop adult leadership to get your hours covered for you. 

     

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions at the information below.

    Sincerely,

    Brian Gawron
