Boy Scout Troop 103 has been selling trees at the Church of the Annunciation on 54th Street in south Minneapolis for at least a decade. “It pays for all their scouting activities for the entire year,” said Tim Kunau, father of 11-year-old twin boys Christian and David, who were working at the lot for the first time this year. Above, Christian Kunau cupped a mug of hot chocolate while working at the lot Friday evening. “The money goes to Troop 103 and helps us so everyone can go to camp,” he explained. “It’s not that cold, but it gets cold when it gets darker.” The hardest part about working the lot, he said, “is untying the trees and naming them.”
