Fundraising Ideas for Troops - Easy

Recommended Posts

Goats.  What's a goat, when the challenge is fundraising?

 

On another level,  back in the days of "possible",  for many years, my dad's Lions Club sponsored a horse show on a local farm.  This was a traditional fund raiser and community event. ( as happens, the farm is now a shopping center. Sic Gloria Agricola).  The event included dressage demos, hunter/jumping classes, big horse teams (Percherons, Clydesdales in 4, 6 and even 8 horse hitch), lots of horse events, dawn to dusk, all day.  Us kids, many Scouts, all were put happily to work in various capacities.  Messengers, escorting celebrities, policing jumps, handling gates....

 

 Part of the event involved the raffling of a Shetland Pony . All us kids wanted to win that ! Regardless of the lack of acreage or fencing in our yards.  One year,  my buddy Henry and I were put in charge of escorting the pony around the County Fair while our dad's sold the raffle tickets. I remember loading the pony into the back seat (!!) of Mr. Stabler's  Oldsmobile, big battleship of a car, and driving to the County Fair like that.  Nice pony....

 

Ah, the memories....
