Tired of selling wreaths, nuts, mulch, or whatever it is your scouts sell to raise funds? Looking for something new to try?
Country Meats might be that something new you need to reach a new audience and fund your adventures. To get the word out, Paul @ Country Meats is contributing 2 dozen smoked snacks to my monthly contest as one of the prizes you could win. That will be a tasty treat for the scouts on your next campout.
I met Paul online a few weeks ago and then chatted on the phone. He's a friendly, sincere, hardworking guy that runs the family business in Florida. He has a great story to tell on CountryMeats.com and their smoked snacks are really super! Paul sent me samples of their 14 flavors, ranging from sweet to mega-hot, and I really liked them all.
Paul's hope is that Scout troops will take advantage of the Country Meats fundraising program, and he's made it simple and fun to test drive. Click to his company website and you can request a free sample of the snacks to satisfy yourself that they are as good as I say.
He also has a patch collecting incentive program that rewards scouts with unique patches as they sell more snacks. Scouts and patches - good idea! More important than the patch program, the percentage of funds that your troop receives seems very generous to me. It shouldn't be too difficult for a few scouts to raise a few hundred dollars.
I can see these being a big hit outside a Gander Mountain, Cabela's, Bass Pro Shop, or any outdoors store on fishing or hunting opener.
Oh, one other thing - as you flip through your next Scouting magazine keep an eye out for the Country Meats ad. They're supporting the BSA through advertising also.
PS: The new Ghost Fire flavor was my favorite, but it might be too hot for some of you. :-)

Just out of curiosity, are the Rockwell paintings on exhibit anywhere

Great question Joe! Have you checked out the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge MA? (nrm.org) There is also the Rockwell Museum in Corning NY. (rockwellmuseum.org) I believe the latter has more art. Hope this helps!

The Scouting museum at Philmont, Cimmaron, NM hopefully has the ones that used to hang at the museum in Irving, TX. Good luck. Johnna
