Hi Shel! Great to have you on here...As Kathie mentioned, things have
been a little quiet because most of the folks from the USA are either
visiting or attending the Jamboree...which should be officially over
Kathie was right on target in her response...let me add please that my
Explorer Posts sold the "throw away flashlights" a few years back and
really made a lot of money...and remember what she said that you NEED
the local Council's permission AND you need a plan of what you will do
with the monies...
Lots of units raise monies because "we need the money" but really have
no plan of what to do with it...and they end up spending it on silly
things that the unit didn't really need.
Welcome to the list, and I hope that you get a lot out of the list and
