Blah ! That is exactly how I would describe our Boy Scout fund raiser Saturday.The weather was terrible ! The weather man call it fog but the rain gauge called it a half an inch!
This put a damper on our whole Christmas on the Square festival.Our town only has two really good events that bring in revenue,the county fair and Christmas on the Square.We did have people come out,but not like everyone was hoping for and definitely not like two years ago before the economy crashed.
The scouts had a grill set up and did yummy pork on a stick.
We ate as much as we sold 'cause they were just so darn good! It didn't matter though ,we still had some left when we called it a day.
We barely broke even.The boys also took turns walking around the square with donation cans and raised some money. All day out in the misty rain-fog for around 100$...sigh. Last year we made around 700$ ! It's a wonder we all didn't get pneumonia to boot! These fund raisers are where we make our money to send the boys to summer camp,things are looking kind of sad at the moment.
So here are some pictures of our severely dreary day.
This is the gazebo on the court house lawn.
This here is one of our food competitors! Cute little roach coach! That is not an insult,we call all these portable food thingies that!
We always have a few groups preform.
These are some cloggers.The little ones were especially cute!
Here are some vendors trying to keep their stuff dry but I think I took this picture to show the front of the court house.
Here is some dreariness..
and some more dreariness...
and just in case you didn't get enough dreariness,here is some more!!!
