Dear Scout Families,
I am in the process of closing out our Popcorn Sales Fundraiser! In doing so, I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that we do have 10 extra bags of Cheddar Cheese that have yet to be sold. In order for our Pack to neatly close out this fundraiser, I was hoping that your Scout family would consider purchasing one or more of these bags….perhaps for the upcoming holidays. Instead of sending your relatives those cookies via the mail….why not send a bag of Cheddar?
If you are interested in further supporting our Pack and your Scout, please contact me by Friday, November 1. Reminder: Cheddar Cheese bags are $15.
A special Thank you….to all the Scouts, Scout Families, Neighbors and Friends who have already been so supportive this year!
Yours in Scouting,
Don’t forget to sign up online and pay your camping fees by the November Parent/Leader meeting on November 5th.
Please see the email below from Amy our wonderful camping chair who gets to organize this rascal bunch of scouts and parents over the next few camping months!
We love our Camping Chair!!
– Ryann, Pack Chair
Here it is! The first camp out sign up of the year! And what a great place to be going for our first camp out! If you have been there before, you haven’t fully experienced it until you camp overnight at the park! And woken to the sounds of the lions waking…. It’s an awesome thing to hear in the morning!
We will be arriving on Friday November 8th and packing up the Sunday morning after breakfast. Saturday will be a fun filled day you and your scouts will remember for a lifetime! We will be enjoying an educational program Saturday morning, (kids, don’t worry! It’s fun and interactive!!) After that, we will tour the park in our cars, and then we will be free to walk around the rest of the park, which includes rides and a water park!! Yah! Sounds like a perfect day, right!? So don’t delay and sign up ASAP.
The fees can be paid at the next Pack meeting on October 18th, but you have until the parent leader meeting to get the fees to your den leader!! Everything MUST be turned in and on the log BY 11/6/13. I will send plenty of reminders, so you won’t have to worry about forgetting!! =)
Here is the link for the sign-up sheet. The first page includes instructions, if you haven’t filled one out before.
Also, if you haven’t camped with us before, click the link below for a list of suggested items to have for camping.
About a week before the camp out, I will send out an email with important things to know! Menu, duty roster, directions, etc!
Keep an eye out for my emails!
I hope to see a lot of people on this camp out!!
As always, if you have any questions, please email or call anytime.

Dear Pack 183,
This year’s POPCORN fundraiser is going to be both simple and fun for ALL! Our official POPCORN Kickoff is scheduled, September 27, during our first Pack Meeting!
How will Popcorn Sales work this year?
At the Friday, September 27th Pack Meeting, each Scout will be given 4 bags of popcorn. (2 bags of caramel / 2 bags of cheddar cheese). It is your duty to sell these bags of POPCORN, as the proceeds are used to fund the awards the scouts earn throughout the year! All scouts who sell these 4 bags of POPCORN will receive one raffle ticket and be entered into a drawing for prizes to be revealed at the September 27th Pack Meeting. If every Scout sells their 4 bags of POPCORN….our Pack will reach their goal!!! (You will collect money with the sale of each of these four bags! Money will be collected at the October 18 Pack Meeting)
But why stop there??? What’s in it for you?
Would your scout like more chances to win prizes?
Parents, wouldn’t you like your scout to earn money that will be credited into their Scout Accounts?
Depending on how much popcorn products your Scout sells, this money could be used to help you pay for their yearly dues, summer camp, camp-outs etc. It’s up to you in how you wish to use that money. For every $50 above your 4 bags sold your scout will receive an additional raffle ticket. That means more chances for your scout to win prizes! Parents,your Pack Committee has voted and decided that 20% of your sales sold from your sell sheets as well as online sales (after the initial 4 bags of popcorn or sales equaling $50) will be credited to your child’s Scout account!!!!
How’s that for incentives????
How to sell?
First, sell your 4 bags of popcorn to friends, neighbors, co-workers. (Reminder: If everyone just sells, their 4 bags….the Pack will reach their goal!!!!!)
