Popcorn Sale 2014 Kickoff

For those of you who did not attend the fishing derby, we passed out popcorn order sheets and sampled some of the new flavors. You can get a popcorn form from your den leader, or download and print it from http://www.cubpack147.com/popcorn/.

The Council has decided to change popcorn suppliers back to Trails End. They have many similar products and some great new ones as well. (Bacon Ranch was a hit, along with Jalapeno Cheddar). The great thing about Trails End is that 70% of sales goes back in to scouting.

As a Pack we spend $100 a scouting year on each child. By selling popcorn we are able to host our monthly events (supplies and refreshments), Pinewood Derby, purchase awards, and our Blue and Gold banquet all without charging families to cover costs.

We are asking that each child raise $300 in popcorn sales. The sale officially started on Saturday 9/20, and order forms need to be turned in to your Den leader no later than 10/27. Popcorn pick up day for your orders will be on 11/15. Please have your scout dress in his uniform when going out to sell popcorn and to always be courteous and polite even when the answer is No.

The top three sellers in the pack, in addition to the top seller in each den, will get to throw a pie in a leader’s face at an upcoming pack meeting! Scouts can also earn prizes based on how much they sell. See the prize sheets. Finally,any scout that sells $600 is can receive a Marshmallow Blaster right away from the council.

If you have any questions about the popcorn sale please feel free to contact our Co-Kernels Angie Segler or Julie Powell. These ladies would be more than happy to answer all your questions.

Fall Fundraiser Volunteers

I am looking for a few scouts, particularly older ones, to volunteer with me at Armstrong on Thursday, October 23rd, from 1-3pm.  This is an early dismissal day for parent-teacher conferences.  The parent club needs help unloading the truck for the fall fundraiser.  Fundraiser pickup is from 3-7pm, and any scouts who can help with that would be appreciated as well.  Please let me know if you can commit, because the parent club needs to know that they’ll have enough help.

Veterans Day Parade

The pack will be participating in East Peoria’s annual Veteran’s Day Parade on Saturday, November 8th. Since there is a conflict with our normal pack meeting time for November, we’ll be holding our pack meeting right before the parade. We will be meeting on the access road behind Goodwill at 1:00 pm. The parade begins at 1:30 and will end at Central Junior High. Save your extra Halloween candy to hand out!
