Popcorn Show and Sells
The Troop will be selling popcorn as its primary fundraiser for the year so full participation is required of all scouts. Each scout is required to sell $960 of popcorn. Show and sells average about $50 per hour per scout. Each time slot requires 1 adult to be signed up along with 2 scouts.
We have storefront shifts open for this Saturday 9/18 at Walmart Bellingham. This is a great opportunity to sell! Please be sure to sign up soon. If we don’t have all shifts covered by Wednesday night, we will need to cancel, which would be a big loss. Sign up here to help out: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0a4aabab2ca7ff2-popcorn4
