In just two hours of photo-taking we raised $79.00 for Big Brothers Big Sisters!
Not bad considering that we ran out of toner for the printer just 2 pictures into the troop and even after sending a handler out to find some, it turns out there are no toner cartridges sold in this town for my little printer. So I gathered email addresses and mailing addresses to handle all those that were waiting (and bowling) for their photos.
Thank goodness everyone was really nice about this. And I'm ordering a case of toner before our next troop!
Please join us at this great community event held in Pioneer Park. Join us for a photo on the Death Star!

What is ToTitH? Trick or Treat in the Heat (TOTITH) is a neighborhood-wide early Halloween celebration. Anyone who has experienced Trick or Treat with late October Alaskan weather knows what a borderline miserable experience it can be for our kids here (and their parents)!
