Pack 1 Saunderstown-Popcorn Sales

Hello Everyone,

I am the new Popcorn Kernel for Pack 1- Saunderstown.  The Narragansett Council’s 2014 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 9/5/14 but I wanted to give everyone a heads up today.


The Take Order Sales starts on 9/1/2014 and will end on 10/31/2014.  All order forms will need to be returned no later than Sunday, November 2, 2014.  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.


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 $4,146 in Popcorn and raised $1,333 in donations at this event.  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 20 and Sunday, September 21. 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 $122 towards their sales for participating in a 2 hour block.

I will have a sign-up sheet at the Pack meeting this Friday night.


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

Thank you

Steve Edwards
