Three requests for the Tree Drive

Hi everyone, 
 
We’re getting ready for the Christmas Tree Pick-up Drive - our biggest fundraiser of the year! This is how we pay for things like the Scout House’s upcoming new roof, and why we don’t charge separate fees for camping and a lot of other Scouting events. Because this is so important to the Troop, all Scouts are required to participate. 
 
(1) Handing out flyers at the Transfer Station! We’ll be there next weekend, and each Scout needs to do at least one 2-hour shift. Please sign up at the links below: 
(2) Sign up for the Tree Drive itself! Each Scout needs to do at least one day, and this year (due to COVID-19), parents need to accompany their Scout because car-pooling is not being allowed by Mayflower Council. Please sign up at the links below: 
(3) Help us spread the word via social media! Start by liking or following our pages:

The Boy Scouts in Hingham Troop 1 can make your life easier by recycling your Christmas tree after the holidays! You can sign up and make a donation online at https://www.hinghamtreedrive.com.
