 raising efforts and participation:

  •  Boys Life subscription 
  •  Birdhouse kits and construction
  •  Tool box kits and construction
  •  Hayride and Bonfire
  •  Supplies and training for Den and Pack Leaders
  •  Scout patches, badges and recognition awards

Suggestions and information:

  • Please try to collect the money when you get the order.  This will help the Pack be
  • sure checks will clear and that we can pay for the popcorn when we pick it up.  Collecting the money ahead of time also is easier for you since you can just drop off the popcorn since its already paid for.
  • Be sure to get the customer’s phone number and that you can read all of the information BEFORE you leave the house.
  • If you drop off the popcorn, you can call/leave a message for the customer letting them know where you left the popcorn.
  • Use one mark for cash payments and another for checks.  This can help when you’re making sure you’ve got all of the $$.
  • Turn in the money to the Pack at the next meeting.
  • MAKE ALL CHECKS PAYABLE TO PACK 33
