Beginning Nov. 25, Boy Scout Troop 420 in Bothell will open its annual tree lot in the Safeway parking lot on the corner of Bothell Everett Highway and 240th Street Southwest.

This is the troop’s only fundraiser for the year and the money goes toward supporting outdoor activities. In addition, the operation is also an educational opportunity for the troops.

The lot will run from 6-8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, through Dec. 24 — or until there are no more trees.

There are more than 30 local youths in Troop 420, which has been in Bothell for more than 60 years.
