Dinner Sales Each scout is expected to sell dinner baskets. The event is free for Troop 10 scouts, but all adults should purchase a basket/ticket. Scouts should sell to their family, friends and neighbors. We also sell baskets in Lexington Center, at our sponsor (Sacred Heart Church), and to other troops in town.
Silent Auction We ask each family in the troop to provide items for the silent auction. You can do this by donating items or by soliciting items from local businesses. To avoid approaching a business more than once please check with the auction coordinator and fundraising chair. If you have an item or a skill or a weekend / vacation home that you can donate for a week or weekend, please consider that as well. Past items have included a week at a family’s summer and ski-home, fresh baked goods, sports tickets, a lesson to learn a new skill such as how to roast coffee beans.
