Troop 189 will be accepting trees from any neighborhood, to be dropped off at Serene Lake Elementary School on Saturday January 6th, 2018 from 9am to 2pm. We recognize that this isn't as convenient for most people, but changing circumstances have caused us to shift from curbside pick-up to this method.
If you are in an area that is covered by another Troop and have received an “Operation Dry Needles”flyer, please support those Scouts!
Our Scouts use the trees- after they're run through a chipper - to spread the chips over trails and an outdoor classroom located behind the school. This is done as a community service project, but we will gladly accept donations to help compensate the use of the chipper and provide additional funds for other scouting activities.
