Popcorn Top Seller Awards, Prize & Door to Door Sale DistributionThis year’s Popcorn Fundraiser was a-maize-zing!  You pop-ably never realized it, but the Fall Popcorn Campaign is a key fundraise for our Council given it does not receive any funding from our national registration fees. We bested last year’s sales figure by a considerable amount, raising money for both the Pack and Council.

Come learn what the Pack raised, who the top sellers were and for those who participated, receive your 2018 Popcorn Sales Patch.  If you earned a prize for selling popcorn, this will be distributed after the pack meeting.

For those of you who took “Take Orders” – i.e. door to door sales, this popcorn product will be distributed at the end of the pack meeting so that you can deliver it to your customers.
