Boy Scouts to sell popcorn

Annual fundraiser supports organization

MANISTIQUE – Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venture Scouts are again selling “Trails End” popcorn this fall. The sale is the primary fundraiser for the Scouts.

Seventy percent of the sale is returned to scouting. About half supports the activities of the packs, troops, and crews. The remainder supports the programs, services, and camp facilities of the Bay Lakes Council, including Camp Hiawatha, located near Chatham.

A new offering this year, some units are also selling Interstate batteries. A wide variety of batteries for household use will be sold, including a variety pack.

Another opportunity for those who may not wish to purchase popcorn is to make a donation of $30 or $50. This will be used by Trails End to send popcorn to military personnel serving throughout the world.

The sale will continue through Oct. 21. Products will be delivered after Nov. 10. In a pilot project in the Upper Peninsula, some units will have the product on hand to sell directly to customers. Popcorn lovers also have the option of ordering Trails End Gourmet popcorn online at www.trails-end.com.
