Hoagie & Pizza Sale!!

Posted on Mar 29 2017 - 11:43am

We will begin a hoagie & pizza fundraiser this month.  We will do 3 months and see where everyone is at. If a 4th one is in demand then we can do another in June, but I'd really like to have this wrapped up by May.  Each item nets your Scout a 50% profit towards their own individual account to be used for their Scouting needs.  A change this year from years past, we are going to make all the items be $7 to make everything seem easier and no coins to worry about.  When turning in the money please turn in 1 check/money order payable to Troop 143 or cash in larger bills.  We don't want to have to chase down your neighbor or Uncle Tom for insufficient checks and receiving $200 in singles and coins from everyone makes it a little crazy.  If you have any questions please ask Kathy Buzzie at buzzies99@gmail.com (please put scouts in the subject) or via cell at 412-389-1331.  The order form and sale info is attached for you to print.
