Hello Troop 349 Families! As announced at the CoH, Troop 349 is participating in the national Boy Scout Popcorn Fundraiser this year to help fund our excellent Scouting program. We keep 40% of all sales which is split between the Troop (65%) and the Scout (35%). Popcorn is a family friendly product and makes a great holiday gift for teachers, coaches and hostess gifts for those holiday parties!
Order Forms and Payment Due by 10/25
Popcorn order forms were handed out at the CoH. They are also available at the weekly meetings or can be downloaded from the Troop 349 website. Order forms are great for taking to work, sharing with family, neighbors and friends. Order forms AND PAYMENT are due by 10/25. Popcorn will be delivered the week of 11/20.
Show and Sell 10/1, 10/7
Boys and Adult Volunteers can sign up for a "Show and Sell" which is a sale table set up in front of a local store. At a Show and Sell boys practice skills like communication, marketing, cash handling and learn about electronic payments (credit cards) and how they work. It’s also a great way to showcase Troop 349! Boys earn the same 35% as they do with order forms, but with more opportunity for sales in a short period of time. Our Show and Sell dates and locations are:
10/1 (Sun 10-6) – St. James Day – Specific address information to follow
10/7 (Sat, 10a-4p) – Ace Hardware Nesconset – 246 Smithtown Blvd., Nesconset, NY 11767
10/7 (Sat, 10a-4p) -Ace Hardware Smithtown – 52 E Main St, Smithtown, NY 11787
