Fundraiser Mtg

Dear Parents and Scouts,

We are looking to have a meeting on this Thursday at 7pm for those interested in fundraisers, specifically the Summit County Fair. I realize a lot of you may be leaving town, but we also didn’t want to wait to much longer on getting these projects in place, since the Fair Board said that we could not sell pre-packaged food in a vendor booth, and requirements of a food booth are a lot. So we came up with the following ideas.

So in the best interest of the group who is interested in participating in the Summit County Fundraisers. Please let one of the following people know:
  1. If your Scout and/or you would like to participate
  2. Which works better with your schedule:
a. Thursday the 23rd at 7pm OR
b. Tuesday the 28th at 7:30 pm (not sure if we can use the church though)

For the Summit County Fair, we are were looking at a vendor booth - “Old Fashion Photo Booth”

They will get an 8x10 mat framed photo, similar to the one at the top of this Post for around $19.95 (we are checking pricing)
We will print the pictures right then and that way we collect the money, give them the photo, and we are done.

The Scouts can work together to help set up the booth, gather props, make posters for advertisement, place announcements in the local papers, work the booth, with selling the photos, and filling out forms to collect the money, take down the booth, and any other items that may need to be done.

The days and times that the booth will need to be worked in shifts:

August 6th 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
August 7th 11:00 am – 9:30 pm
August 8th 11:00 am – 9:30 pm

Jerrie Hansen has agreed to take the photo’s for all three days for free, any purchases above and beyond the initial photo would go to her for her time and equipment.

I think this would be a lot of fun, and go over well, everyone loves photo’s!!

The other option is if the Scouts would like to work together to tie some quilts, we can do a ticket sale donation “not a Raffle” for the quilts. One mother of a son who went to the Jamboree last time, did extremely well at doing this at the fair last time.

Thanks for all your are doing to help your Scout raise funds for the Jamboree.

A thought for when Fundraiser’s seem difficult to find the time for - :)

The cash value of work is important for children to learn. If they grow up in a family where the parents provide everything they need, and if the breadwinner works outside the home, they may have no concept that somebody actually labors to earn the money.

hildren can ask for a lot of things. They think they need a lot of things to be happy—but if they have to pay for those things themselves, they quickly learn to judge how important they really are to them. They learn how much things cost, not just in money, but in time and effort.
