Boy Scout Troop 309 was out early Saturday morning, January 4, 2020 to collect and dispose of Christmas trees in their assigned area. The boys were especially excited to open the donation envelopes after they tossed the trees into the trailer.

They had previously left the envelopes at homes in their area, letting people know that they would come around on Saturday to pick up Christmas trees and would appreciate a donation.

Ben is a sixth grader who loves sharing his scouting adventures and the new skills he is learning as a Boy Scout. Matthew is a junior in high school and is focused on completing his Eagle Scout project. Todd is the Assistant Scoutmaster.

Troop 309 meets every Monday 7:00pm at St. Mark Church in Shoreline. The troop is actively seeking boys between the ages of 11-17 to join them. They are also interested in starting a group for girls. For information about becoming a scout, contact Troop Master Dwight Thompson: 206-399-9477.

Troop 309 thanks who handled chipping of the Christmas trees at no cost to the Troop.

Correction 1/6/2020: Ben - sixth grade; Matthew - high school junior; Todd - assistant scoutmaster
