Flags Across Munster Campaign 2018

Hello–
After enduring one of the coldest Aprils ever, the weather is starting to turn and it’s time to get out there and sell those subscriptions for Flags Across Munster.
The deadline to turn in your sales sheets and money will be at the scout meeting on May 16.  I will return your sales sheets on May 23 (but it would be a good idea to make a copy!) You can keep selling after that date (and many scouts last year picked up sales after Memorial Day.)
For Memorial Day, you will pick up your flags at Westminster Church on Sunday, May 27–the time is TBD, but it will likely be in the afternoon. You will return the flags to the same location on May 30 at the Wednesday scout meeting (we will be meeting at Westminster for the summer).
To recap how this works:
Scouts will sell $25 subscriptions in their neighborhood. In return, the scout will post in the early morning and retrieve in the evening a 3×5 U.S. made American flag on three holidays:  Memorial Day, July 4 and Veteran’s Day.  
 
Scouts will receive a $3 commission for each sale, and $2 for each flag he posts. The money will go into their scout accounts, and funds can be used to pay for scout events and activities.  Scouts should collect their money at the time of the sale, not at time of delivery.  Your initial sales are due no later than May 16. You can keep selling, but I need to know generally how many flags have been sold by that point. 
For example if a scout sells 10 subscriptions, they will earn $90 over the course of the year.  ($3 commission x 10 = $30: $2/flag post x 10 = $20 $20×3 days= $60. Total: $90.)

Twenty six scouts and numerous scouters helped make this years Pancake Breakfast a fantastic success. WELL DONE!

Sorry if I didn’t capture your scout. I guess I spent too much time enjoying the conversations.
