Nov. 25/15- Cub Scout Josie Robichaud

Scouts will pick up trees or you can drop them off

Fundraiser helps West Shore Community and West Shore Scouts

West Shore area Scouts are engaging in a fundraiser to help residents dispose of their Christmas trees from now until Jan. 10.

Members will be on hand for drop-off days at the Luxton Fairgrounds, Jan. 2-3 and Jan. 9-10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Trees can also be dropped off at Race Rocks Auto, 1057B Marwood Ave. from Dec. 28 to 30 and Jan. 4 to 8 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Trees will be chipped for a suggested donation of $5 for drop-offs, or $10 for pick-up service, with funds going to the 14th Juan de Fuca Venturer Company and 9th JDF Rovers. The money helps defray the cost of Scouting events and camps.

If you’d like your tree picked up, call Curtis at 250-589-7715 or email treechip4scouts@gmail.com.
