November 26th, 2016 by Mike

The local Scout Christmas Tree lot opens for business today, just across from the Maple Leaf Reservoir Park!

Boy Scout Troop 151 emails:

Thanks again for last year’s coverage of our Christmas Tree Lot, we saw our business increase, allowing us to provide a better program.

Once again we are selling Christmas Trees at St. Catherine’s Church Parking Lot  at 8610 Eighth Ave. N.E.

Our hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on 11/26/2016 & 11/27/2016, Mondays – Fridays from 4:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., and 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. On all Saturdays and Sundays in December.

All funds raised are uses to provide an outdoor education and leadership program to Boy Scouts in our neighborhood. This year we are planning a 50-mile canoe trek on Ross Lake.
