The Scout motto of being prepared brought this project together. With these recessionary times you never know if that paycheck for your groceries may not always be there. So our troop setup a project to hand out the Bishops Store House's Dry pack Order Forms for items folks can purchase. They all have very long shelf life. IE: Canned wheat good for 30 years. Can of apple chips maybe 10, but they do taste better right out of the can than the wheat.
We collected all the orders and setup the event to allow our group (we included the girls) to put together the orders. There were lots of different jobs we needed to be trained on. And of course we all had to wear these fashionable hair nets.

|Training time||OK so you get cute hats and aprons.||So you take the 80kg bag and dump it into the tubs.||Then you fill the can.|
|And fill more cans||Then we put the cans into boxes.|
|Then you put lids on the cans.||I got to get one of these.|
|Got the boxes ready with the orders taped on the outside. Organized Eh!|
