Popcorn Sales

Posted by jdbaert on Aug 22 2016 - 7:51pm

Hi Parents & Scouts.  We are getting ready to kick off our 2016 Popcorn sales.  It is our goal to surpass last year’s sales of $ 1600.  We would like at minimum for each scout to sell $50 of popcorn.  If you choose not to sell, but would rather do a donation, then that amount would be for $75.  While a minimum of $50 is very reasonable, it does not meet our troop goals.   We are encouraging each boy to “do his best” to sell to family and friends, create an online sales account and participate in booth sales.  Sales booths are an easy way to sell popcorn quickly and meet our troop goals!  Each booth sale will be two hours and have only two scouts.  Two parents must stay during this time.   As an incentive, there will be a prize for the top three selling scouts.
