Roscoe Boy Scout Troop’s tree stand at new location
ROSCOE, Illinois — Roscoe Boy Scout Troop 620’s tradition of selling Christmas trees continues this year in a new location. The stand has moved to the corner of Highway 251 and Hononegah Road on Rockrose Court in Roscoe, Illinois.
All proceeds of the tree and wreath sales benefit the troop general fund.
“Selling Christmas trees and wreaths is one of our main fund-raisers,” said Mark LaMonica, Scoutmaster of the troop. “Our scouts enjoy providing the community with an affordable product while having some fun at the same time.”
The lot offers locally cut fresh trees, wreaths, roping, crosses, candy canes and mail box swags. The stand is open each weekend through Dec. 21. Hours are as follow:
• Fridays — 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., with the exception of this Friday, Nov. 28, which is all day, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.;
• Saturdays — 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and
• Sundays — 11:30 to 5:30 p.m.
The location is on Rockrose Court, off Hononegah Road at the Schnucks entrance and immediately north of Beef-a-Roo.
