The Scouts BSA provides the nation’s foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training, which helps young people be “Prepared. For Life.®” This program embodies the outdoor experiences and life lessons that only Scouting provides. Most importantly, it provides the confidence, dedication, and passion each Scout discovers to lead a successful life. Expanding this program to girls just makes sense.
Boys live for any opportunity to display their abilities while learning new skills. Camping is fun. Surviving a downpour in the middle of the night is an adventure. Cooking over a campfire is fun. Learning which wild berries are edible is survival. Spending a weekend in the woods is fun. Breaking camp without leaving a trace is admirable. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are life lessons that transform today’s Boy Scouts into tomorrow’s leaders.
22nd Annual Christmas Tree Recycle
Saturday January 12, 2019
Support your local Boy Scout Troop 1564 by letting us recycle your Christmas Tree for a donation. Each year we provide this service to the community as our only fundraising event by our troop.
One day a year we collect trees from all Bainbridge Island addresses that have made a reservation. Take off the ornaments, stand, and lights from your tree after the holidays and put the tree to the curb for recycling.
On the Day of Pickup
Remove all decorations and tinsel from your tree. Before 8am on the morning of Saturday Jan 12th, 2019 place your tree in a visible location at the curb. Scouts will pick up your tree between 8am and 4pm and recycle it into mulch. We cannot take wreaths, flocked trees, or artificial trees.
Tree recycling is both a community service and a fundraising event for our troop. We suggest a donation of $15 for the pickup service.
