Support Scouts - Buy Popcorn!

Posted on Aug 22 2016 - 11:29am

It is that time of year again!  As summer winds down and we prepare to start both the new school year and scout year, it is also time for all scouts to sell Trails End Popcorn!  There are two ways to support Pack 1980 and your Cub Scout through popcorn sales: 

Door-to-door Friends and Family Sale:  Returning Scouts, should have received a Popcorn Form in the mail.  If you have not, we will have more forms available during our Scout Kick-Off Meeting on Friday, September 16th.  Please start selling now (before we get busy with school)!  We have a goal for our Scouts to sell at least 10 units of popcorn each. That would be AWESOME!!!!    This sale is on-going through the end of October.  All popcorn sales forms and monies should be turned in to either Joy Costigan or Shannon Wootton - our new Popcorn Kernels - by Wednesday, November 2nd.  Popcorn will be ready for pick-up and delivery after November 18th.

Show and Sell on Saturday, September 10th at Branchburg Walmart:  If you are not a door-to-door promoter OR would like to earn additional monies, please join us for ONLY ONE HOUR between 9 AM and 2 PM at our Show and Sell.  Register now for your preferred time slot on our Popcorn Selling webpage.

Still Time Left to Earn the National Summertime Pack Award

Posted on Aug 20 2016 - 1:16pm

Summer is winding down, but we still have several different activities planned to help Cub Scouts earn the National Summertime Pack Award.  Several Pack 1980 Cub Scouts have already earned the Summertime Pack Award for attending activities in June (Family Campout, Family Swim, Solberg Solstice, Geocaching), July (Rocket Launch & Stuff the Bus Service Project) and August (Miniature Golf Outing).  All boys who earn the National Summertime Award will be presented with a pin at a fall pack meeting.

Bonus:  Boys who participate in three summertime pack events are eligible to receive the National Summertime Award pin. (The summertime award scouts receive will match their current rank badge they are wearing rather than the rank they are working on - boys who have attained the rank of Tiger will receive the Tiger pin even though they were promoted to Wolf at our Family Campout.)
