Troop Fundraiser info, PLEASE READ!

n Monday 5/11 we will kick off a short fundraising campaign to benefit our troop.  All proceeds will go towards the general fund to pay for things such as trailer maintenance and supplies.  The committee has determined that each scout will be to responsible to contribute $30.00 toward the general fund.   Every Scout will be issued 3 Sonic Drive-in discount cards to sell.  There are two options available to to cover the $30.00 contribution. 
 
Option #1.  Discount cards can be sold for $10.00 and have over $30.00 worth of discounts at local Sonic Drive-Ins.  All scouts will receive 3 cards at the May 11th meeting or by appointment during the week of the 11th. Cards will need to be sold ASAP and money turned in no later than June 1(there is no meeting on May 25th due to Memorial Day)  Please see Mrs Kape to get cards at meeting or make appt by emailing desertgirl322@yahoo.com or call/text 602-616-4163. Parents may chose to simply pay for cards at any time no later than June 1st and use the cards as you wish.  
 
Option #2. Funds may be deducted from your scout account if you have an available balance equal or greater than $30.00.  If you wish to use this option, please contact Mrs Alford to let her know no later than June 1.  
 
Please note,since other fundraisers, such as popcorn and camp cards, raise funds that are deposited into the scout accounts and the troop does not have income from these activities.  Last year our troop raised money for the general fund by participating in the air show which will not take place this year.  We need every scout to participate in this effort to provide for the general troop account.  If you are unable to meet this requirement through one of these 2 options, please speak with Mr Nodine, Mr Vaughn, Mr King, Mrs Degennaro, Mrs Alford or Mrs Kape.
 
Also,  we have 200 Sonic discount cards available which is enough for each scout to take 3 cards to sell.  We anticipate having a few cards left over and will make these avail for new incoming scouts to use for raising funds for their scout account.  They will be available May 18th and only after the initial three cards have been paid for. 
 
Please plan to be at the meeting this coming Monday to pick up our Sonic cards.  THANK YOU!
