Fund Raising Events
 

Christmas Tree Sale

The vast majority of our operating budget each year is contributed by our Christmas Tree Sale. The success of our tree sale is extremely important in ensuring that our boys, the leaders of this troop, can do what they want to do.

Below is some basic information about the tree sale:

-  Every Scout in the troop participates in the tree sale.

-  The tree stand is located in the field next to the 4 County Exxon Station on Route 27 and Penn Shop Road (click here for a map).

 -  Weekday shifts run from 6-9pm and weekends are divided into (3) four hour shifts:  early: 10am-2pm, mid: 2-6pm and late 6-10pm.

 -  Every shift must be manned by two scouts and two adults for both safety and to comply with BSA Youth Protection guidelines. Each scout is responsible for bringing an adult that will work with them for the duration of the shift.

-  Each scout must work at least one weekend shift. It is possible to work two consecutive shifts on a weekend, but that can make for a long (and usually cold) day.

-  If you will not be attending other troop events scheduled during the tree sale (such as the Antietam Illumination), consider selecting a shift during that time so others can attend the event.

-  Try not to place two first year scouts on the same shift so older and experienced scouts are available to help show the new scouts what to do.

-  Shift selection is first come, first serve, so sign up as soon as you have your schedule worked out.

-  Once signed up for a shift, the scout is responsible for arranging a replacement

Camp Cards

Every year, our troop sells camp cards at Safeway to help people save money at certain stores. They only cost five dollars and half of what you sold goes into summer camp. They are sold every spring.

Snow Cone Stand

A few times every year, the troop sells snow cones. The scouts do two hour shifts at the Lions Carnival and the Fireman's Carnival. The adult leaders also sell snow cones at the Alzheimer's Car Show. The profit goes toward high adventure.

 
For All Fund-Raising Events, remember:
 
1)  Be ON-TIME for your shift
 
2)  A Parent accompanies a Scout
 
3)  DO NOT wear the Boy Scout Class A Uniform while at the Tree Stand or the Sno Cone Stand.  The Troop Grey  T-Shirts are appropriate.
 
4)  Dress appropriately for the Weather
 
5)  All Donations go to the Troop
 
 
The Order of the Arrow                      
Scouting’s National Honor Society

For more than 95 years, the Order of the Arrow (OA) has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives.

Mission:  The mission of the Order of the Arrow is to fulfill its purpose as an integral part of the Boy Scouts of America through positive youth leadership under the guidance of selected capable adults.

Eligibility

  1. Be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America.
  2. After registration with a troop or team, have experienced 15 days and nights of Boy Scout camping during the two-year period prior to the election. The 15 days and nights must include one, but no more than one, long-term camp consisting of six consecutive days and five nights of resident camping, approved and under the auspices and standards of the Boy Scouts of America. The balance of the camping must be overnight, weekend, or other short-term camps.
  3. Youth must be under the age of 21, hold the BSA First Class rank or higher, and following approval by the Scoutmaster or Varsity team Coach, be elected by the youth members of their troop or team.
  4. Adults (age 21 or older) who are registered in the BSA and meet the camping requirements may be selected following nomination to the lodge adult selection committee. Adult selection is based on their ability to perform the necessary functions to help the Order fulfill its purpose, and is not for recognition of service, including current or prior positions. Selected adults must be an asset to the Order because of demonstrated abilities, and must provide a positive example for the growth and development of the youth members of the lodge.
