>>> On 12-03-94, SCOUTS-L Youth spoke to DEBBIE FREELE about Re: GEN:
We did OK in the money department too, but just as with your group, our
pack of 32 only turned in ten envelopes wit orders. There is to many
fund raisers going on at this time of year, and I know that I say NO to
most of them.
I heard from most people, that they felt that the popcorn was too
expensive, but others thought that even thought the popcorn was pricey,
they knew it was for a good cause. Someone else mentioned to me , that
they didn't like the fact that we had to take orders, and felt that
sales would have gone better, if we had the product, in hand, to sell.
Frankly, I just think there are to many groups trying to get a hunk of
the pie, so to speak, and most people are just sick of people calling or
knocking, asking for hand outs. I don't think there is much anyone can
do about it, except to make public all of the good things Scouting does
for a community. Another words, sell Scouting!
SY>We had a poor turnout for the popcorn sale this year. Made okay
SY>money but very few boys sold popcorn. The proble was it came the
SY>week after the school candy and wrapping paper sale. Has anyone else
SY>experienced this problem and how did you handle it?
