Troop 184 had a tree lot which all scouts were required to help. There were 4 shifts each Friday through Sunday that were available but you only had to work 3 of them for the 4 weeks we worked. The shift was from morning to afternoon to midafternoon and night. Also if there were extra shifts you could work them to earn more money for your scout account. We sold a total of 479 trees. We had multiple trees from 4ft to 11 ft. The trees we had were Charlie brown, noble fir, grand fir, Michigan fir, balsam fir and Frasier fir. During our shifts each scouts was responsible to carry, hold or unwrap the trees. The leaders/parents took the money, filled out paper work, and to use a chain saw to precut the tree. The temp was from 60 degrees to 5 degrees.
