Important Dates for 2014 Holiday Wreath Sales

Troop 18 Scouts and Families, we are in the midst of our 2014 Holiday Wreath Sales Fundraiser and order forms are due Wednesday, November 12.  The Wreath Flyer and Order Form are attached below.

As you know, this fundraiser is very important for the troop and the individual scouts to earn money credits toward their future scouting activities.  To earn scout credits, every scout will be required to sell 5 items during the pre-sale period.  For every item sold after the first 5, Scouts will earn a $5 credit per item that can be applied to scout activities – including the ski trip, summer camp and other scout trips.  So, the more you sell, the more money you can apply to your future trip expenses.  Additionally, Scouts who sell 5 wreaths or more receive a $25 troop dues credit.  For scouts who opt out or do not sell at least 5 items will pay the full dues.

Important Dates:

Wed, Nov 12 – Wreath order forms are due to Cindy Elliott.  (Tues, Nov 11 is Veteran’s Day so there won’t be a scout meeting to turn in the paper)

  • Forms can be scanned and emailed to elliott_cindy@verizon.net or you can take a picture with your phone and text to me at 860-933-8229.

Tues, Nov 18 – Wreath decorations assembly at Scout Meeting (Parents and siblings are asked to attend the meeting and help assemble the decorations)

Sign Up for the Craft Fair

Hello Scouts and Parents:
As you know, the Annual Christmas Gallery of Arts and Crafts on November 30th is quickly approaching. This is the ninth year that Troop 18 has sponsored this event and each year the Craft Fair has proven to be a very successful fundraiser for the Troop. This is an enormous endeavor and the assistance of all scouts and parents is necessary for the success of this event.
The Craft Fair takes place at Milford High School cafeteria from 9:30 AM – 3 PM on November 30th. We have access to the cafeteria on Friday, November 29th from 9 AM – 12 PM and will need scout assistance during these hours for preliminary set up.

On Saturday, November 30th, the crafters begin arriving at the High School at 7 AM. We ask that all scouts be available during the hours of 7-9:30 AM to help the crafters unload and set up. Help is needed throughout the day from scouts and parents in other areas as well.

We ask that each family respond with the name of each family member and the time period(s) listed below that they are available to participate. Furthermore, each participant who does not already have one will be provided with a red Troop 18 T-shirt to be worn on the day of the Craft Fair, so please also provide your T-Shirt size if you do not have a red T-shirt. T-shirts are available in all Adult sizes from S-XXL.

Please select one or more of the following:

  • Friday, November 29th 9 AM – 12 PM
  • Saturday, November 30th 7 AM – 10 AM
  • 10 AM – 1 PM
  • 1 PM – 4 PM

You may respond by email and/or a sign-up sheet will be available at Tuesday’s scout meetings.

We are also asking that each family make and deliver to the Craft Fair (Teacher’s Cafeteria) the following:

  • 5 dozen cookies (3 per bag, bags in a basket, labeled with what they are, name on bottom of basket for return at end of day) or
  • 4 dozen bars (2 per bag, bags in basket, labeled with what they are, name on bottom of basket for return at end of day) or
  • 2 loaf-style cakes (cranberry bread, banana bread, etc., on a plate, uncut) or
  • 1 to 2 dozen cupcakes (on a plate)

Please let me know what you plan to make so that we will have a variety.
Please call if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Troop 18 Donates to Daily Bread Food Pantry in Milford

2012 Food Pantry Donation

During their Scout meeting on Tuesday, December 4, 2012, Milford Boy Scout Troop 18 presented John DeAngelo, Director of the Daily Bread Food Pantry in Milford, with a donation of $450 to help with the pantry’s holiday food needs.  The $450 represents a portion of the admission proceeds from Troop 18’s recent holiday craft fair held at Milford High School over Thanksgiving weekend.  The remaining proceeds will be given to additional local charities in the coming months.  Mr. DeAngelo thanked the scouts for their hard work and generosity and explained that the Food Pantry continues to see an increase in the number of households that need food assistance.
