(Salt Lake City-AP) -- A Scout is trustworthy, friendly, courteous and apparently resourceful.
A Boy Scout Troop from just north of Salt Lake City is trying to help out some fellow Scouts. They ran a lemonade sale to help raise money to cover a 14 (m)million dollar lawsuit over a wildfire that started at a scout camp in the Uinta Mountains.
Troop 347 of Fruit Heights was offering the lemonade this morning in Salt Lake City at a somewhat inflated price -- A sip of lemonade cost one dollar and a small glass three dollars. For 250 dollars, you could get a large, which was about 16 ounces. There were no takers on the larges.
KUDD FM disc jockey Scott Fisher helped come up with the idea. His son is in the troop and says the boys wanted to help out.
Today's effort raised about 66 dollars, most of which came from morning commuters who gave the boys a little money on the way to work.
