One of Troop 868's annual fundraisers is the sale of World's Finest Chocolate bars the first weekend of February.  The Troop joins with our sister unit, Cub Scout Pack 868, to mobilize enough Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and scout parents to cover multiple selling locations in the areas where the majority of our scout families live and shop.  By posting scouts at major retailers and multiple gas stations simultaneously, we are able to sell several thousand candy bars in a single weekend.

Despite being in the middle of winter, the weather was mild and mostly dry --- some light rain fell briefly on Friday.  But this was not enough to drive people indoors, so sales were excellent.  In fact, we sold out of candy shortly before 7:30 PM on Saturday night and had to cancel our Saturday night and Sunday selling shifts.
