5th Annual Bike Sale a Fantastic Success

Posted on May 6 2015 - 10:35pm
Our 5th annual Bike Sale is done and what a fantastic success it was!
 
First, a big thank you to all the troop members that took time out of their busy weekend schedules and helped us out Friday evening at the Legion and today at the Common.  Without everyone's help this event would not be the big event that it has become.  I had countless people telling me that they now look forward to the sale and plan on attending - you are building a legacy for the Troop in our community!
 
Secondly, special thanks to Scott Parr.  Scott was the mastermind behind this year's sale and did much of the heavy lifting to ensure all the details were taken care of.  Thank you Scott!
 
Lastly....we earned more money this year then in any prior year.  The sale continues to grow each year and the Troop will certainly benefit from the proceeds of the sale.  Want to know how much we earned come find out at the Troop meeting this week!
