2017 POPCORN SALE INFORMATION
Popcorn sale is quickly approaching, and Show and Sell orders are due to the Council by Monday, August 30th. Be watching for additional details regarding the upcoming sale. If your unit has not submitted a 2017 Popcorn Sale Unit Commitment Form, please do so to ensure that all communications are received regarding the sale and deadlines.
If your unit is not participating then you are doing a great injustice to your unit and Scouts. Let’s all truly make this year’s sale an extension of the Scouting program and let’s teach them how to be prepared, courage to approach an adult and make an ask, how to tailor their communication skills to turn a not sale into a yes!
The popcorn sale is a way to encourage those young men to have financial accountability for their program and earn their way! What better opportunity to help them prepare for the future.
