Many school policies allow for the distribution of written invitations, however, so that students can invite one another to birthday parties, special events, etc. Dr. Zoeller notes that "some crafty units are taking a different approach to recruitment and while still adhering to Board policies are instead creating formal 'invitations' as an alternative to prohibited flyers." It may seem like splitting hairs, but there is a definite difference between flyers and invitations in most Board Policy Manuals.
Why not create a formal looking invitation from a template many units have used annually for the Blue and Gold Dinner?

Author's Note: A special "shout out" to Cub Scout Pack 182 in Warren, Watchung Mountain District, for their creative use of these invitations and for persevering in getting them distributed as invitations in their schools. Well done!!
