Popcorn sales start
Pack 638 of Cottonwood will be starting their popcorn sales once again this year. They will start selling on October 1st. The money is going towards scouting activities, such as, day camp, Camp Grisly and other scouting activities. Each scout receives a prize based on the amount of popcorn sold.
There are many varieties available again this year. The popular 5-way Chocolate Lovers Tin is $50. The 3-way Tin is $40, while the Cheese Lover’s Tine is $30. Both the Chocolatey Caramel Crunch 24 oz tin and Caramel Corn with Almonds and Pecans 26 oz tin are $16 each. They very popular microwave popcorn is $15 for a 15 pack box. Varieties include Kettle corn, “Unbelievable Butter” Microwave Popcorn, or Butter Light Microwave Popcorn. And finally the famous Caramel Corn with Peanuts 11 oz tin is $8.
You can contact any local scout to place an order. I hope you buy a lot.
