One of Troop 868's annual fundraisers is the sale of World's Finest Chocolate bars the second weekend of September.  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 manning major stores and gas stations simultaneously, we are able to sell several thousand candy bars in a single weekend.

The weather this year was perfect --- sunny, dry, and daytime highs in the mid to upper 60s; warm enough to be comfortable while cool enough not to melt the chocolate.

More photos from this activity are posted on the website of Cub Scout Pack 868 and may be viewed by clicking here.

One of the clerks at Circle-K posed with Adam and Brixton.  Because our scouts are polite and well-behaved, they typically impress the managers and employees at all the merchants where we sell ... which is why we get invited back!
