Popcorn Reminders:

  • There are show and sell spots open for this weekend, so if you aren’t going to MassJam, please, sign up here
  • Don’t forget about getting online sale.  By clicking on the Trails-end  link below, scouts and parents are able to create a profile with pictures and any details they would like to share like perhaps their rank, some favorite merit badges they’ve completed and of course what their online sales goal is.  It looks and feels much like a GoFundMe page.  Some troops have already sold thousands of dollars by promoting their online page!
  • Money should be collected at the time of the sale for all sales from local neighborhood or office sales.  Delivery will be the week prior to Thanksgiving.
  • If you have any questions at all about the popcorn fundraiser,  please email Julie Baird
