Boy Scouts with Troop 54 circle a burn barrel Friday night in the Walmart parking lot in Sedalia to take the bite out of a cold north wind as the temperatures dipped into the teens. The Scouts were holding their Cardboard Campout, an annual fundraiser for Sedalia's Community Cafe. From left, are Andrew Eufinger, Lawrence Westerfield, Phillip Ream, Paul Reinkemeyer, Mike Eufinger, Rob Hicks and Adrian McGowan.
Peter Reinkemeyer, 13, waves a sign to let passing motorists know that donations are still being accepted late Friday night.
Lawrence Westerfield, 14, puts his sleeping gear, consisting of a sleeping bag and emergency blanket, into a cardboard box insulated with newspaper.
