Boy Scout Troop 51 will be running Christmas tree lots at Frisco First United Methodist Church, 7659 Preston Road, in Frisco, and at Main Street and Coleman Boulevard, in the Frisco Square development, from 5 to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday up to December 20. They stock a variety ranging from petite Scotch pines to Douglas firs and Fraser firs at prices from $25 to $150.
The troop combines this community service with the opportunity for the Scouts to raise funds by selling the trees. The profits raised are shared with the Scouts that work the lot. Their individual share amount is driven by the number of shifts they work, and this offers a real-life personal management lesson about work versus reward. The Scouts are then able to direct the funds from tree sales to pay for the upcoming Scouting activities in which they individually want to participate. Boy Scout Troop 51 was chartered by Frisco First United Methodist Church in 2001 and now numbers 90 Scouts and their families.
