|Troop 379 at a summer camp in California!|
Tuesday, September 17, 2013
It is September 1, 2013 and the high today in Phoenix is forecast to be 105 degrees, not exactly the type of weather that evokes Christmas. But members of Boy Scout Troop 379 – and our repeat customers - are already asking when we will begin taking orders for Christmas wreaths and decorations. Most Arizona residents either migrated here or have family ties to colder parts of the country. Having a Mickman wreath or centerpiece in the house for the holidays evokes childhood memories. We aren’t just selling wreaths, we’re selling nostalgia and tradition.
Over the past several years, our Scouts have earned more than $15,000 to help defray the costs of summer camp in places like Seattle, Connecticut and California; high-adventure trips to hike the Grand Canyon and canoe the Colorado River; and cover the costs of Troop dues and other related expenses. This is one of the simplest and most successful fundraisers available. Troop 379 and Arizona love Mickman Brothers!
