The Glacier’s Edge Council is pleased to offer a fall wreath sale as a great supplement to your unit’s popcorn sale and other fundraisers. Wreath sales is a simple and easy fundraising opportunity where Scouts raise funds by selling holiday decorations. These decorations included wreath 24” and up, shaped wreaths (candy canes, crosses), 6 1/2" red poinsettias with basic foil pot cover and bow, as well as a selection of interior holiday decorations. Units earn a 30% commission and poinsettia sales earn $3 per plant.

     **Be sure to bring a trailer big enough to handle hauling your wreaths. Poinsettia's must be transported inside the vehicles to prevent damage.

Once your Unit places an order for Christmas Wreaths and Poinsettias, it is then the responsibility of the Unit to pay for all wreaths and Poinsettia’s ordered.  If a customer is not satisfied with his/her wreath, it can be replaced, but only if we are notified within one week after the pick up date. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND! Payment will ONLY BE ACCEPTED on a check drawn upon a Unit account or bank cashiers check.  Checks returned to Glacier’s Edge Council from the bank will be assessed a return fee of $5 or 5% of the Unit’s Commission—whichever is greater. Wreath commissions will be 30% of the Unit’s total sales. Poinsettias will be a $3.00 per plant commission.

Please contact Margaret Williams with and questions. Completed orders can be e-mailed to Margaret Williams at  margaret.williams@scouting.org.
