Mulch Sale and Delivery
Great job to all the scout who knocked on doors and sold mulch.  The average bags sold per scout was higher than last year so great job!

April 28th is our delivery day.  Time to deliver those bags.  We need all scouts and parents to participate.  The more people helping with delivery, the faster we can get the job done.  Remember, there are three ways to earn money into your scout account on delivery day.

1.  Total hours the scout works on delivery day.
2.  Scout earns $50 towards next year’s scout dues if the scout and parent each work a minimum of 8 hours during delivery day.
3.  Scout will earn a bonus for each additional hours worked over the 8 hour minimum.
Additional needs for delivery day (Contact Gary Hayes 248-766-3238)

* One driver needed for a 26 foot rental truck.
* Pick-up trucks and trailers needed for delivery day.
Delivery day details will be sent next week and covered at 4/26/18 Trop meeting.
