Great Rivers Popcorn Sales

Several Scouts were recognized for being the 2016 Popcorn top sellers in our Great Rivers District at the March Roundtable. They were joined by family members.  Each top seller was presented a certificate personally signed by our District Committee Chair, Doctor Mike Westfall.  The presentation was made by our District Popcorn Chair, Rocky Vandal.

 Over $240,000 was generated in total sales with about $90,000 going to the unit level.

Before the presentation, some of the scouts and their families attended the Cub Scout and Boy Scout breakouts.  

Selling Popcorn benefits everyone from the Scout, to the Adults, to the District and the Council level. 

When a Scout is selling Popcorn, everyone wins.
