VOLUNTEER NEEDED ~ Troop Popcorn Co-Kernal

Posted on Jul 22 2014 - 1:39pm

Boy Scout Popcorn Sales is around the corner!  The District Kick Off Meeting is August 6th - WEDNESDAY at 7PM in Danville.  By attending this Kick Off Meeting our Scouts will earn an additional 4% (this would give them 31%).  Troop Scouts keep their Popcorn proceeds for their summer BSA approved camps and troop outdoor outings.  Last year,  Troop Scouts earned approximately $2,800 in commissions (plus summer Camp Credits & incentives), which went towards their summer camp fees and or troop outdoor outing fees.  THE TROOP NEEDS ONE (or TWO) MORE PARENT TO COORDINATE TROOP POPCORN SALES.  Donna Courington Wendandt (Troop Treasurer) has graciously volunteered to be one of the Troop Kernals / coordinators, but NEEDS HELP.  For details, please contact Donna or Brant Watson (last year's Popcorn Kernal).
