Yes, the Scouts are back. Scout Troop 342 is back in your neighborhood, going door to door, to take your orders for holiday greenery.

For 71 years. BSA Troop 342 has been selling holiday greenery to their fellow South Pasadenans, in order to raise money for the Troop. This fundraiser is unique. Their unit does not charge its members any dues to cover the annual membership fee or to pay for insignia earned by the Scouts.

BSA Troop 342 pays for it all with the funds raised by selling Christmas greenery to the community. These funds also subsidize several activities and other expenses.

“The people of South Pasadena, especially those who have lived here the longest, are familiar with seeing our Troop come knocking on their doors with a flyer for holiday greenery in late September or early October,” adds Carolyn Thompson, Greenery Chairman. Scouts go door-to-door handing out flyers and taking orders. Following the same procedure as in previous years, calls will be made to set up an appointment and instructing the client to leave payment in an envelope under the doormat.

All the usual favorites are available this year: the mixed evergreen wreath in 22-inch and 28-inch width, the noble fir 22-inch wreath and swag, the 10-ft garland of Western Cedar, and a mixed evergreen table centerpiece. There’s also a new item, a table decoration featuring red and gold reindeers.

Payment for greenery orders being delivered to South Pasadena, southern Pasadena and western San Marino can be made upon delivery. For orders shipped outside the local delivery area to anywhere in the contiguous United States (not Alaska & Hawaii), payment will have to be collected upon placing the order.

Scouts will be visiting neighborhoods October 1-2 and October 8-9. An online option is also available by placing an order on the Troop 342’s Mini-Site. Or you can text or call 626-765-1014 and leave a message. A Scout will contact you in the first week of December to arrange delivery.

Orders need to be placed by Halloween, October 31, 2022.
