A big thank you to all the scouts and parents that participated in our site sales. Kernels Vince & Matt have tabulated the results and we are ahead of our record-breaking year last year. We will soon circulate an email to summarize hours worked by scout to we can make sure everyone gets an appropriate level of credit towards their sales goals.
Although the site sales are over, we encourage everyone to get out with your scout to go door-to-door to visit neighbors & friends. This year our popcorn campaign will wrap-up on Saturday, October 18, with all orders (and collections) due to the den leader (or parent coordinator) on this date. Note this is the date of the fall camp out as well – more details will be provided soon.
One way to ask friends & family to support scouting is to ask them to participate in the online campaign. To facilitate your scout’s involvement in this campaign, Kernel Matt put together the following “how to” guide to online popcorn sales.

In addition, you can copy the link from your child’s sales page, and paste it to your Facebook status (with a picture of your child in uniform) to gain more visibility and sales opportunity to their page.
