It’s that time of year again……it’s POPCORN TIME!!
The goal of the popcorn sale is to provide the most effective fund raising program - to maximize the net income with 1 fund raising effort.
This is the one opportunity for the scouts to earn money that will help fund this year’s scouting activities (e.g., family campout, Blue and Gold banquet, picnics, awards, books, neckerchiefs, pinewood derby, Den supplies, snacks, etc.) . Funds also are distributed to each scouts’ personal account to pay for things like summer camp, fishing derby, etc. Last year the boys on average made $200+ to put into their personal accounts.
There are also incentives, which play an important role to motivate our scouts. This year, like last, there are many opportunities for the scouts to earn prizes based in individual and unit sales!
In addition to earning $ and prizes, the boys learn valuable skills – such as:
The boys cannot do this without our help. As cub scout parents, we have a responsibility to help our boys reach their fund raising goal this year - so I’m asking all parents to assist us and ensure our kids success.
There will be a Pack Meeting Thr Sep 17. Please do your best to attend. Product information, order forms, Show & Sell sign-up sheets, prize sheets, tip sheets, and lots of other information will be provided. The Show & Sell sign-up is also on the Pack 570 webpage, http://cubscoutpack570.org/2015-popcorn-sign-up/
Again, the kids cannot do this by themselves – they cannot go to store fronts alone, they cannot canvas a neighborhood alone- they need our help. Please help your scout.
