2015 Popcorn Sales

posted Sep 4, 2015, 8:14 AM by Pack 1 Saunderstown

Hello Everyone,

          I am the Popcorn Kernel for Pack 1- Saunderstown.  The Narragansett Council’s 2015 Fall Popcorn Sale is the major fundraiser used by our pack to help pay for all of the fun events that we will be participating in throughout the year.  We will be discussing the Popcorn Sale in detail at the Pack Meeting on Friday 9/11/15 but I wanted to give everyone a heads up today.


The Take Order Sales starts on 9/1/2015 and will end on 10/31/2015.  All order forms will need to be returned no later than Monday, November 2, 2015.  If you were in the pack last year you may have already received an order form in the mail.  If so, feel free to start selling to Family, Friends and Neighbors.  You do not have to collect the money at the time of order and can collect upon delivery instead.  I will have order forms to distribute at the pack meeting if you need one or for now you can access one here if desired.


The most important event around the popcorn sales is the Show & Sell at Stop & Shop.  Last year the scouts did an amazing job and we sold $4,217 in Popcorn and raised $1,337 in donations at this event (over $2,800 directly to our pack!!).  We're hoping to continue that success this year. Please mark your calendars as we're going to need a lot of help on Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, September 20.  Again we are going to set up shop at both doors so we need at least 2 scouts/1 parent per door throughout the day (9:00 AM to 5:00 PM).  Please think about a 2 hour block of time that would be best for you or your scout on either (or both) of these days.  The total amount sold at the Show & Sell is divided by the number of scouts that participate and counts towards his sales for prizes and incentives.  Last year each scout that participated received a credit of $131 towards their sales for participating in a 2 hour block.

I will have a sign-up sheet at the first Pack meeting and have attached it for your reference. 


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you
