Boys and and girls from Trail and American Heritage Girls Troop NM1412 will be selling HybridLight flashlights, lanterns, headlamps and more Friday and Saturday at Smith’s Marketplace in Los Alamos, Smith’s in White Rock and Metzgers Do-It-Best Hardware in Los Alamos.
The troop has previously sold the HybridLight products in the community where they have proven to be popular with hunters and campers, but especially as Father’s Day gifts. The products are waterproof, nearly indestructible and can be solar powered.
As well as being available in-person Friday and Saturday, orders may be placed online at https://www.hlfundraising.com/trail-life-usa/nm-1412. Anyone making a purchase in-person will be rewarded with a ticket for raffle for a handmade wood chest made by the Randleman family.
The Troop is selling the items to raise funds for camping and hiking supplies and other materials as well as funds for scholarships so that no one is excluded for financial reasons.
