I wish you'd asked about this during last night's committee meeting. The
company we are doing the work for, American Family Day, does not provide any
alcoholic beverages, does not serve alcoholic beverages, and does not ask
their volunteer staff to serve alcoholic beverages.
If beer is available at the picnic, it would have to come from the
participants themselves. Neither they, nor we, can control what they do.
Nothing within the parameters of our agreement with American Family Day
falls outside of BSA guidelines. It's simply an easy way to earn a
substantial amount of money in one day. As much as fund raising is a rotten
subject, you have to do it in order to run a quality program.
