ROXBURY - An annual rite of the holidays is underway: Boy Scouts flagging down cars on Main Street in Succasunna, hoping to sell wreaths.
The annual Boy Scout Troop 163 wreath sale is taking place in the parking lot of Roxbury Fire Co. 1. Money raised from the sale of the home-made wreaths goes toward expenses and activities in the Succasunna-based troop.
As the sun set on Scouts Chris Libby and Mike Lang, both 15, on Saturday, they said they'd had a good day, selling about 16 wreaths. "We didn't get any sales Friday," said Libby. "We like to believe Friday is just when people start to notice we're here."
The wreaths, decorated in the Troop's trailer right on site, cost $25 each.
The Scouts wlll be back at the scene Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. They will return next Friday for a 6 p.m.-to 9 p.m. stint and on Saturday, Dec.3 they'll be selling the creations both at the fire station and down the street at the Home for the Holiday event.
