Wow! We blew out our biggest fundraiser of the year! We set a goal of 3800 bags of mulch, and we beat it! Almost every Scout and their parents came out with trucks, trailers and cars to help deliver mulch on Saturday, April 7. When we started selling mulch, we averaged 400 bags. This year we sold 4032 bags in 108 orders! Yes, you read that right! WOW! The Seabase High Adventure crew added an additional fundraiser to mulch sales by spreading bags for $1/bag. 1270 of the bags sold were also spread! Congrats to that team for thinking up that idea and seeing it through. The profits of mulch sales, combined with fundraising sales from the October yard sale and wreaths, will go to provide a discount for camping. Great work, guys! Huge thanks to all of the parents and families who helped support this fundraiser by getting those orders in and showing up to deliver. We appreciate you.
THANK YOU to our Camping Coordinator, Stephanie Thomas, for being the unofficial 2018 Mulch Master. It was only thanks to her tireless efforts that we got mulch at all. She spent many, many hours coordinating all the orders, managing resources, dealing with short shipments and deliveries that arrived 12 hours late. She was incredibly tenacious and organized, and wouldn't take no for an answer. So THANK YOU Stephanie for being amazing, as always. We couldn't do it without you!
