RememberSchiff posted a topic in Unit FundraisingIMHO, somewhere in the first lesson of adult leader training there should be a rule. Thieves steal from scouts anytime, anyplace. It's so easy. Be vigilant, protect your scouts, protect your assets. This story from Portland, OR is another example but with a local contractor coming to the rescue, a fundraiser - "This is how our troop pays for the entire program throughout the year. Our boys don't pay for summer camp they have to earn their way to summer camp", Troop 351 Scoutmaster Mike Benson the Governor stops by, the community responds and sales pick up and perhaps a girl Boy Scout interviewed. She was working the fundraiser and appeared to be wearing scout pants. http://www.kgw.com/life/holidays/samaritan-steps-in-after-grinch-steals-from-portland-boy-scouts/498150606
About 18 miles outside of Stanley, Idaho right in the middle of the path of the August solar eclipse is Camp Bradley. "You don't have the town around you, you don't have the buildings, you have mother nature," SE David Kirk said. When the council realized they were in a prime location they decided to rent out their campsite to people coming in for the event. "You can always hit the hotels. You can't always hit this opportunity," Kirk said. The proceeds from the weekend will go to the Snake River Council to support the scouts. "It's a good fundraiser for us and it also helps the public get to see this special feature," Kirk said. http://www.kmvt.com/content/news/Boy-Scout-camp-opening-their-gates-for-solar-eclipse-428759733.html Scout salute and points for original, heads-up thinking to Snake River River Council
