Lots Lots Lots to do.

Hello everyone. I hope this blog finds you all will and happy. A lot is coming up on us this week. So lets dig in with both hands and feet and get started.

1. Popcorn - Popcorn is the big way we fund our Pack on getting awards and such. The more we make the more the pack can do and a better scouting program we can put on. I know the prices are high but they gave a little more popcorn this year in the bags. Explain it to help the Council and the pack. If you have someone that don't want to buy popcorn they can donate money to the Pack and I write them a receipt.
-- Please make sure you have your buyers to fill in the order form completely and neat as possible. Bring your form in each week. So your son name can be put in the drawing for a prize. For each $20.00 sold his name go in a jar to be draw ed out for a weekly prize and also in the end of the month sale jar for the crossbow. As for the council awards Every Scout that sales at least one item will get a patch or pin. Then starting at $25o they can pick a prize or take a $10.00 Walmart gift card and so on. The Sale starts Oct. 1st. and Ends the 31st. Then I HAVE TO HAVE THE SALE FORMS NOVEMBER 2ND MEETING. I need them to be totaled and the prize reward chosen filled. So any question e-mail or call me.
