Wreath packets were distributed at the September Pack meeting. Packets contain glossy brochures, order forms, Minneapolis solicitor licenses, etc. Scouts who need a packet can contact Nicole at erdm0030@yahoo.com or 612-695-7109. Extra sales order sheets can be downloaded here. If you need a copy of the wreath sales brochure, download the brochure here.

The wreath sale basically involves pre-selling wreaths to your friends and neighbors. In addition to scouts selling individually (door-to-door with supervision or calling around), you are encouraged to make arrangements to sell at your place of worship or another organization to which you belong.

Payment

Full payment for all items you are ordering is due when you turn in your order sheet. The money turned in must match the total amount listed on your order sheet. Money is collected at time of sale, not at delivery (i.e., all wreaths must be paid for in full when the Pack orders them).

Checks must be made to Pack 1. If someone writes a check in the name of the scout or their parent, please aggregate these and write a single check to Pack 1 (have this check include any cash given also). Cash is acceptable. Online payment is for mail ordered wreaths only.

Delivery

Delivery will be on Nov. 17 starting at 10:00am till 12:00 at Northrop School, 4315 S 31st Ave S, Minneapolis. You will need to make arrangement to pick up all of your items during our delivery window as we do not have storage. All items should be delivered by Thanksgiving.

SALES AWARDS!

Dens have a $100 minimum goal per Scout for wreath selling. All scouts in the den must sell $100 worth of wreaths and the pack will pay for a fun night of pizza and games. Keep in mind $100 is only selling 4 to 5 items per scout. We know that everyone can do it!!!

All Cub Scouts selling $50 worth of wreaths (generally 2-3 items) will get a free Pack 1 Class B t-shirt with a new design for this year.

Scouts can earn camp credits to offset the cost of weekend camps:

  • $100 of sales = 1 free camp for a scout
  • $300 = 1 free camp for a scout and adult
  • $400 = 2 free camps for a scout and adult
  • $500 = 3 free camps for a scout and adult

All scouts who sell over $500 get to throw a cream pie at a scout leader of their choice at the November Pack meeting.

Notes

  1. Camp credits apply to Pack 1’s campouts.
  2. Polar Cubs is not included in the free camps.
  3. Camp credits cannot be transferred or carried over to the next Scout year.
  4. Arrow of Light Scouts who sell more than $500 and cross over to Scouts BSA in April can apply earned camp credits towards Winter Camp skiing costs and/or Spring Camp with the Troop.
