Note to all procrastinators reading this story: Sunday is Mother’s Day! Have you forgotten? If so, some local valley boy scouts have a budget-conscience solution- and an ingenious fundraising idea.
Local Snoqualmie Valley Boy Scout Troop 700 is taking orders for beautiful, high-quality one dozen rose bouquets, which will be delivered on Saturday, May 12th to the local door of those special ladies in your life. Mom, Grandma, friend, neighbor – you name it and they can do it. The roses cost $25. The scouts say rose bouquets of this quality normally sell for $50. The bouquet is delivered in a 9 1/2″ glass vase.
Selling roses for Mother’s Day is one of the fundraisers Troop 700’s leaders came up with to help the boys, all aged 12 – 18 years, pay for this summer’s High Adventure Experience – a one week sailing experience in the San Juan Islands to learn skills and have the adventures of a lifetime.
So far the scouts have sold 150 bouquets, but still have 80 more to sell. These roses are a local procrastinators dream come true! If you would like to place a Mother’s Day order please email Angela Barrus (scout mom) at firstname.lastname@example.org Include your name, address, phone number, best time of day to call – and the number of bouquets needed so the boys can keep track . Interested parties can also call Angela at 425-443-6247. The contact info will be passed on to a trustworthy boy scout who will contact you to schedule the delivery and collect the payment.
Angela adds, “We live in an amazing community and on behalf of our Troop, I would like to thank community members who have supported the scouts with a friendly welcome, well wishes and even a sale here and there!”
