Good morning all,
Ever have area-wide "get-togethers" ? Arrange for a day trip to eg a state park.
A program of introductions, short presentations on one's first responder activities, and
a dedicated picnic table to sell emergency type stuff. Eg if I bring a new Mr Coffee brand espresso maker....sells for about $40 at a big box store based in Bentonville, Arkansas and sell it for eg $25 AND ALL the proceeds goes to usfra , ......a new Army field jacket; same principle as aforesaid, and whatever else I and others can carry to a park (presuming OK to do internal fund-raising). Adjourn to a semi-nice restaurant and then demob for trip back home after sending a convenience store or Walmart money order by USPS snail mail to usfra. I'll bring the pre-addressed, stamped envelope.
cross reference: education seminar, fund-raising, get some fresh winter air.
If not now ?
