Flower Sale Fundraiser
It’s that time of year again… The Boy Scout Mother’s Day Flower Fundraiser!!!!
Yes… another fundraiser but this one benefits you!! For all the new scouts to Troop 6 this fundraiser is to help you raise money to pay for summer camp!! Yes, that’s right, you get 100% of the profits!!
We will be selling hanging baskets, annual flats and a beautiful patio pot from Bucks Country Gardens in Doylestown. Last years flowers were gorgeous!! Plus, keep in mind, flowers arrive the Thursday before Mother’s Day so they make great gifts!!
Please see the Mother’s Day Flower Fundraiser forms and tally sheet that you will use to keep track of your sales. (I would highly recommend that you print them out in color, better visuals = better sales!) Please keep in mind that the pictures of the flowers are just for reference and they will vary. We don’t know what color the flowers will be, we are working with mother nature:)
The fundraiser starts March 27th and ends April 24th when money is due.
Flowers will be delivered to Doylestown United Methodist Church the morning of Thursday, May 11th.
