Searching for a Popcorn Kernel

Posted by wbnolenjr on Aug 17 2017 - 10:19am

Troop 777 is looking for an adult to manage the popcorn fundraiser.  Your official title would be Popcorn Kernel. This is the big fundraiser for the Troop and the District for the year.  Its the one fundraiser that individual scouts can get credit for participating.  The time commitment for this is from now through December.  If you are willing to do this for the Troop, please see one of the Scoutmasters or the Committee chair.  The Council is currently holding popcorn kickoff meetings otherwise known as Explosions. We have 3 more chances to attend an Explosion:

8/22 Huguenot Trail District Explosion – Mt. Pisgah UMC @ 7 PM
8/24 Battlefield District Explosion – New Hanover Presbyterian @ 7 PM
9/7 Rivers District Explosion – Beale Memorial @ 7 PM  

If we don't have someone volunteer we will miss this opportunity for the Troop! More details on this opportunity can be found here:  (Popcorn & Peanut Sale)
