Tyler Collins and Chris Cloo of Boy Scouts of America Troop 4059 hold up a wreath that was presented to the Oak Harbor City Council and Mayor Jim Slowik earlier this month.
According to Brian Jones, committee chair for the troop, the troop has been making wreaths for over 55 years and has presented one to the city annually for more than 25 years. Wreath making serves as the group’s primary fundraiser and over 200 were made this year.
Also present were Lucas Nickelson, Michael Lym, Brett Nielsen, William Nickelson, Matthew Hallahan, Ryan Hughes, Cameron Radka, Austin Hauter and Scoutmaster Dan Haigh. Troop 4059 is over 75 years old, making it the oldest on Whidbey Island.Contact Whidbey News Times Staff reporter Justin Burnett at email@example.com or 360-675-6611 ext. 5054.
