Well at least most of you get to distribute flyers through your schools. Our
school principal refuses to allow us to do this!! (and believe me we have
asked and asked - and begged? We even tried going over her head when all else
failed). Her "concession" is to allow us to stand outside of the school and
hand out flyers - while the boys exit out of many doors - and are not
interested in stopping on their way out to see what we have, nor do they stop
to put the flyers into their backpacks - just grab one and keep running on
their way home. I feel that we are doing a great job of contributing to
litter - not advertising our event!! Our Pack is sponsored by the P.T.O.
whom have also complained about this. Surprisingly, tons of other papers are
distributed by this school - including blatant advertising that in no way is
school or P.T.O. sponsored! Also, all other Elementaries in this district
happily allow distribution by their Cub Scout Packs.
Sorry about the long post - but it is very irritating! We would like to do
room by room recruiting as well - but obviously not an option either!!
