February:
 
How can a pack be thrifty?
So we know about looking for scout days, group discounts and free days at museums or other places we want to visit.
But what else?
Are we utilizing the talents of parents and other family members to make our scouts have a memorable experience?
Do we have teachers who have extra books, extra websites, and materials that may be useful to our lesson plans that won’t fit in the school curriculum due to time restraints.
Do we have Etsy shop owners or hobbyists that may want to showcase and teach their talents to the boys for a pack “outing or activity”.
But what else?
 
 
What are some other thrifty ideas for making Blue and Gold a success?
