Boy Scouts Troop 112 Sells Christmas Trees

Boy Scouts Troop 112 are raising money for programs by selling Christmas Trees.

Posted: Dec 2, 2018 12:12 PM

It's the beginning of the countdown until Christmas and what a better way to start the countdown then with buying...you guessed it a Christmas Tree.

Kevin Calkins Scout Master 112 says "This is our 61st annual tree sale here in Ashland."

These trees are hand cut and sold by Scout Troop 112. All the money raised helps the troop fund programs all year long. I asked the Scout Master why this is important for the scouts to be doing this for 61 years.

Kevin says "Actually going out and talking to adults and not with us. So they have to go out and do a little salesmenship. A little bit of here's a good tree, we could do this with your tree. They take the trees they spin them around, they pull the trees out. So it's working with the public, being a responsible person and actually have conversations with adults. That's difficult when you are 11 years old."

And the scouts know what they are doing is hard work.

Ike Gilliland says "It's worth it. It's difficult, but it's so much fun."

Ike walks me through the process of selling a Christmas Tree.

Ike says "First we introduce ourselves and say hi this is my name, we are troop 112 would you like a Christmas Tree?"

The community service is also noticed by the people that come to buy a tree.

Bob Thorton says "When you sepnd your money you should support something right?"

Bob Thorton not only bought a tree but a..

Bob says "And a wreath that's right. Now I have to go home and put it in a bucket and now I need to get a thing to put it in and start puttign the lights on."

So if you are looking to buy a Christmas Tree and also want to donate to an organization head to the Elks Lodge Parking Lot in Ashland this weekend.
