2015 Popcorn Program
Scouting still believes in and stands for the core value of earning!  Remember a Scout is Thrifty!    A Scout earns his own way and fund raising is how we accomplish it.   Popcorn sales is the primary way our Pack raises money for the 2015-16 program year. 

Benefits to Your Scout and Family:
  • Teaches Scouts the value & process of setting and working toward goals
  • Gives Scouts a strong sense of accomplishment through recognition
  • Enhances communication, leadership skills and confidence in your Scout
  • Scouts can earn valuable rewards including gift cards and prizes  

Sales Goals:

    The goal the our Pack has set for each Scout is $350.00

Ways to Sell:                                                                                          
   

Take Orders
  • The Scout with his Akela goes door to door with a Take Order Form.  Take Order Forms will provided during the Popcorn Kickoff 
  • The customer writes his/her order on the Take Order Form and the Scout collects the money.
