Tri-Quest Discount Shopping Card Overview
Assistant Scoutmaster Vinnie Villani will conduct a brief introduction of Tri-Quest Discount Shopping Cards, and will distribute same to each Troop family that is able to support this fundraiser. The goal is for each family to sell 5 cards [or as many as they can] to relatives, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc.
Remember, all fundraising efforts help cover the costs of our trips/events, for replacing aging/damaged tents & camping equipment, and for training/advancement materials for the Scouts on their Trail to Eagle.
