The following message was sent out to Service Units and Troops via eBudde earlier today, but we wanted to share it with everyone:
We wanted to update you on the status of extending booth sales for one week. There will not be an official extension. There are a couple reasons we've decided NOT to extend booth sales through March 29.
1) We only heard back from a very small percentage of troops indicating they would like to hold a "My Sales" booth for an additional weekend. Most of those that were in favor would only be in favor if we could guarantee availability of all varieties.
2) Due to the national shortage and our regularly scheduled sale dates, the baker and therefore; the council, cannot guarantee to have all cookie varieties in our cupboards to cover the additional weekend.
If however, you were one of the troops that said yes and can arrange a "My Sales" location for the extended weekend (March 27-29) we would approve the site but only with the knowledge that the cupboards would not be open and the money would still need to be deposited first thing Monday, March 30 because the final bank sweep would not be delayed.
