Greenery & Popcorn Fundraisers – Orders and money due October 25th

Mrs. Gina Eddleman is leading our greenery sale, and Mr. Ross Earl is leading our popcorn sale. If you did not receive order forms, please get those from Mrs. Eddleman and Mr. Earl. They are also available if you have any questions. The orders and money are due on October 25th, and the products will be delivered in mid-November. Remember that for the greenery sale, for the Holiday Gift Products that are shipped directly to the purchaser, you need to fill out a Holiday Gift Order form for each item. Mrs. Eddleman has more Holiday forms if you need them, and please return Holiday forms you won’t be using to her. Every Scout or Scouter who sells popcorn or greenery will earn 60% of the profits for their ScoutBucks accounts, so the more you sell, the more Scoutbucks you will have to pay for campouts, trips, Summer camp, etc.
