Looking for that fun, once-a-year, low risk fundraiser to fund your unit’s scouting program and events for the entire year? Your pack, troop or crew can finance the unit’s program for the entire year off of just one fundraising program.
Over $83,000 was raised at the unit level of Great Rivers units just from selling popcorn in the fall of 2014. The selling season is only about 5 weeks long so you have more time for Scouting fun! Join the fun along with more than 40 units selling in Great Rivers. This gives your unit local expertise and help.
For 2015, we have Hmong and Spanish speakers along with trilingual sales flyers available. This is so we can tailor your unit’s kickoff and training events specifically to fit your unit’s needs.
Sale starts 5:00 PM CST on September 18, 2015 and runs through Oct 25. Now would be the perfect time to bring it up to your units’ planning committee.
If you are a brand new unit willing to give popcorn a try for the very first time, please contact our District Popcorn Chair before May 10th. For all units, please forward your unit’s Popcorn Kernel’s phone and email to our District Popcorn Chair at your earliest convenience to keep informed on training opportunities and up to date information.
Special certificates were presented to the top 3 popcorn sellers at the April Roundtable. Congratulations went out to Boy Scout Mathew K., Life Scout Antonio V. and Cub Scout Michael K. for being the top three popcorn sellers in our district for 2014.
