For nearly 60 years, Boy Scout Troop 100 has been selling trees in Ballard.
The scouts are once again set up in the parking lot of St. Alphonsus Church (at the corner of NW 57th and 15th Ave NW). Selling Christmas trees is the only fundraiser for this troop. The trees are hand-picked by some of the troop’s fathers and sons. “Community service plays an important part in building character, and these boys regularly volunteer their time and efforts to make positive contributions to the Ballard community,” Ann Wicker, a Boy Scout mom, tells us. “These remarkable young men give back to Ballard with pride and enthusiasm!”
This week the tree lot is open from noon until 9 p.m., starting on Saturday the lot will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. until December 19th, unless they sell out of trees early.
