NO CHRISTMAS TREES THIS YEAR
Having been a participant in the Christmas Tree sales for more than ten years, I agree with the Brother Cal that it is time to find alternative means of raising funds for the Fletcher Council Charities Scholarship. The Christmas tree program is labor intensive and a majority of preparation, logistics, scheduling and weekday lot shifts are undertaken by a very small number of council members. All of our members are reaching the age where this type of activity is difficult to maintain. I am certain we can find new ways of raising the necessary funds for our Charities and I have complete confidence in our members to arrive at suitable alternative programs.
I will be looking forward to hearing from the Charities Board and Officers, our council Executive Committee and all members of the council for new and exciting ideas. Fletcher council has a great tradition of members who can think outside the box and arrive at solutions that will sustain our success and excellence as the premier council in the State.
