Boy Scouts selling Christmas trees at St Alphonsus to raise money for programs and charities

The Ballard Boy Scout Troop 100 has started selling Christmas trees at the Saint Alphonsus parking lot on the corner of 15th Ave NW and NW 57th St.

The Scouts will be selling the following trees every Thursday and Friday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and every Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9.m.:

  • Fraser Fir
  • Korean Fir
  • Noble Fir
  • Nordmann Fir
  • Norway Spruce
  • Sheared Douglas Fir
  • “Charlie Brown” trees

The crew also selling Christmas greenery including wreaths, mantle runners, door swags, and cedar garlands.

The Scouts will be on-site helping customers pick out trees and using their skills to help tie down trees onto cars with proper knots.

Proceeds from the tree sales will help send the Scouts to summer camp, operate the “White Whale” bus, and cover camping trips and other activities. The Scouts also donate a portion of tree sales to support St. Alphonsus and the Ballard Food Bank.

The Scouts will continue to sell trees until they run out.
