Alan - Thanks for the additional suport. I think you hit a great point that the boys should earn their way. Too many parents don't hold the boys responsible and just make the donation for them. I think I have enough to support the fact that the deficit should be covered by the wards budget. Thanks a...

I've often wondered about the way ward budgets are based on attendance. But what if you live in an area where lots of tourists visit? Or maybe you have a lot of young families with out-of-ward visitors for baby blessings. Does your budget far exceed what you need? Or do members of your ward travel ...
