I just wanted to make everyone aware of the troop’s up and coming fundraising events.

Bob Evans:  May 29th – Jun 5th
Hopefully everyone got a handful of flyers at the last troop meeting for our Bob Evan’s Community Fundraiser.
This is a super easy way for the troop to earn money.  Just pass out flyers.  When people bring the flyers to Bob Evan’s (both Jackson locations) between May 29th  and June 5th, our troop receives 15% of the sale!  So pass out flyers to everyone:  family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, at church.  I’ve included a PDF so you can print more and also email them.  Remember we cannot distribute flyers on Bob Evan’s property and do not place them in mail boxes.
Candy & Camp Cards at Wal-Mart:  Sat. May 31st & Sun. Jun 1st
If you would like to earn money for your personal troop account,  get ahold of Chris Becraft at or 787-7695 to get signed up.  We have spots available on Saturday May 31st.  Typically boys have earned $20.00 – $30.00 per 2 hour shift.
