TREES FOR TRI-MOUNT 2021 CANCELLED

 

We were notified a few weeks ago that our Christmas tree supplier for the last few years has decided to sell the business and would not be able to supply the Council with trees this year.

 

Following notification, we reached out to more than 50 Christmas tree wholesale suppliers from Pennsylvania to Nova Scotia. We were not able to secure a supplier who had the inventory to supply us with the needed trees this year. We will not be able to conduct our annual Trees for Tri-Mount Christmas tree sale this year.

 

It seems there is a severe gap between supply and demand this year and for the next few years. If you normally buy a live tree, anticipate as much as a 60% price increase this year.

 

Our inability to sell Christmas trees will put a strain on our budget for this year and into next. If you would still like to financially support Scouting in Greene and Ulster Counties, you can donate at:

Effective Immediately:

With the recent increase in COVID-19 exposures, ALL customers must wear a mask when in the Scout Service Center.

The mission of the Rip Van Winkle Council is to provide an effective program for boys and girls, as well as young men and women, to help them develop desirable qualities of character and leadership, participating citizenship, personal fitness, good family values, and respect for the environment, and to prepare them to make ethical choices over their lifetime in achieving their full potential.

Further, it is the mission of the Rip Van Winkle Council to make the Scouting program available to all eligible youth in Ulster and Greene Counties. The council will develop and maintain the physical and financial resources to support an effective Scouting program in its territory and support the chartered organizations that use Scouting.
