Hud­son Ca­va­gnal —HO­LI­DAY

Scouts are hos­ting an an­nual Ch­rist­mas tree fun­drai­ser this week and or­ga­ni­zers say there is still time to or­der a fresh, lush tree. Going high tech this year, the lo­cal troops are gi­ving people the op­tion of pla­cing or­ders on­line and ha­ving them de­li­ve­red for a $5 fee.

The group is of­fe­ring 6-8-foot trees for $40, or 8-10-foot trees for $50. Mike Block, a Saint-La­zare re­sident and Scout lea­der, said those who want to pick their items up can do so on Dec. 3, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., at the cor­ner of Har­wood Blvd. and Mon­tée St. Charles, in Saint-La­zare. Funds rai­sed will be used to buy equip­ment for the units, or to fund Scout camps, com­mu­ni­ty and out­door ac­ti­vi­ties, as well as to help co­ver costs for scouts who could other­wise not af­ford to join.

The Hud­son Ca­va­gnal Scout groups in­clude the Bea­vers, Cubs, Scouts and Ven­tu­rers. Or­ders can be pla­ced with lo­cal scout lea­ders, or through the group’s web­site: www.ca­va­gnals­couts.ca.

They won’t look like Char­lie Brown Ch­rist­mas trees, but the kids sel­ling them are just as nice as the fic­tio­nal Pea­nuts cha­rac­ter.

Mem­ber so fthe Hud­son Ca­va­gnal Scouts will be sel­lin gC hrist­mas trees this wee­kend in Saint-La­zare.
