About our cover:
Any season can be good for launching a unit money-earning campaign to help pay for program supplies and activities, but the holidays are especially lucrative since so many people are buying gifts. Writer Mark Ray gives tips and examples of successful money-earning projects in his article. Sales items featured on our cover include evergreen garlands, wreaths, and centerpieces from Sherwood Forest Farms; Virginia Diner gourmet nuts; and Trail's End popcorn.
