My post has totaly given up on selling things to make money, so what we
did last year was had a tree plant-athon, were we went out and got
donations for the first 100 trees we planted. We had one person come
away with $500 and the post made about $1000 after expenses.
We have found here that Explores just arnt as good as cub scouts in
selling things, face it we just arn't as cute.
