    Joe, when I was an explorer in the mid 70's, (now I just dated myself) we would hold a Flea-Market every winter. We would sell table space for $25.00 a table and provide and sell the food for the day. We would cook hamburgers and hotdogs. We made a ton of money off this. We would also set up a $2.00 cover charge. We found the best time to hold them was in February. Why? I don't know, but we always did great in February! If you want anymore info drop me a line. Good luck brother.

    Well, my post holds a car wash every month. Its a cheap easy way to make a lot of money. Last car wash we had we made $540 for just 4 hours of washing cars.

    Well, I help out with department fundraisers, but we don't do anything for the juniors' program because it is not necessary. I am the FIRST and ONLY junior in our department. We're thinking about recruitment, not fundraising.

    Well for fundraisers we havent done one since i joined but we are getting ready to start one. We are going to sell metal signs with reflective 4"(regulation size around here) numbers on them to put on your mailbox so your house can be found easier. After we get done i can let you know how it went and more details if you would like.

    Co11FireGal E-mail me at catfish1361@hotmail.com if you get a chance

    Thanks
    Matt
