St. John Girl Scouts Christmas Craft Fair

The Girl Scouts Christmas Craft Fair is back! The Craft Fair will be on Sunday, December 4, after the morning masses! Please come support our troops while getting some holiday shopping done!

Scout Christmas Tree Lot

It’s Christmas tree time again for Scouts & Crew 100 & 8100. Scouts will be selling Christmas trees for their annual fundraiser. The Scouts help customers find the perfect tree, give it a fresh cut, and use their Scouting skills to ensure trees are tied onto cars with proper knots.

Scouts & Crew have been selling Christmas trees in the Ballard area since 1956. Buying a tree at the tree lot is a community tradition, with many local families returning year after year. Proceeds from sales help send the Scouts to summer camp. The Scouts also donate trees to several local churches and contribute to the Ballard Food Bank.
