Popcorn Fundraising

Hi Nativity Cub Scout Pack 67 parents and scouts!

We're getting ready for another successful popcorn fundraiser this year! The sale is fun for many of the boys (and they win prizes - seriously, lots of prizes!), gives you money to pay for scout activities, and supports our cub scout pack and our fun activities.

Below is all the info to get started and the variety of ways to get involved. The popcorn sale officially kicks off TODAY, Friday, September 24 at 5 PM and ends November 1.

NEW SCOUT TO POPCORN SALES?

The first (and required) step is to register to sell online at https://www.trails-end.com and then make sure to also get the Trails End APP. This creates your scout’s popcorn account. We will use the app for EVERYTHING - it takes credit cards (no processing fees!), tracks inventory, and gives you the scout’s online selling link. If you need to create a new account, you’ll need this info: Council: Northern Star, District: I ("yes, the letter I"), and Pack/Unit: 9067.

WAYS TO SELL POPCORN:

1. SELL ONLINE: This method is strongly recommended and incentivized this year. Online, there are additional products available and there are free shipping periods. Scouts also receive more prize credits by selling online. Lastly, it is the most “COVID-friendly.” Use the personalized LINK found in the app and send it to friends and family, post it on Facebook, etc. IT IS EASY and you don’t need to touch inventory at all. Online orders ship directly to recipients. EASY!!

2. TAKE ORDERS: Collect orders from friends and family, let me know when you’re done (deadline Nov. 8) then I deliver to you the exact ordered products on November 18. Use the packet handed out at the first scout meeting for available products, costs, etc. Or let me know if you need more forms. I have lots.

3. STOREFRONTS: Scout dad Patrick Schneeman worked with each location and set up shifts to sell popcorn outside Thomas Liquors, Widmers, outside Mass, etc. Sign up for a shift in the APP! Patrick will be in touch with a table, credit card device, and popcorn to sell. It’s fun and easy and yes, we sell a lot of popcorn this way. Again, sign up to do this in the Trails End app. Love the app.

4. WAGON ORDERS: This called “wagon” because it’s when you might put popcorn in a wagon (and have it in-hand, not just an order form) and go door to door or something like that. Yes, I have popcorn in my garage. Want some to go door to door with it in hand? Let me know and I’ll leave some out for you in my inside front porch. Note --- “TAKE ORDERS” is preferred to this method, this is an option because frankly - it’s better to sell, sell, sell!

This is our Cub Scout Pack’s big fundraiser so thanks for your active participation! Please be in touch with Leslie (contact info below) directly for any questions. I will continue to email each week with updates.

Thank you from your 2021 Popcorn Crew:

Calendar Released

Pack67's calendar has been built out on Scoutbook (here's a handy link to import/subscribe the calendar into yours: https://scoutbook.scouting.org/ics/111395.A95F0.ics). Den meetings will occur the first Tuesday of each month, starting in October and the last will be May. The Pack meetings are scheduled for the third Tuesday of each month, starting in September and the last will be May.

Both meetings are scheduled to start at 6pm in the Nativity of Our Lord School Cafeteria. The Pack meeting will start with a short 15-minute program to cover awards, upcoming events and handing out Pinewood Derby kits, followed by Den meetings. The goal is to get each Scout through their required adventures before the Blue & Gold Dinner in February where they will receive their awards.

2021/22 Welcome Letter

Welcome to the 2021-2022 Scouting year! We understand Covid was a major disruption and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to in-person meetings and continuing to build on the strong foundation of Nativity Scouts. A few housekeeping items:


  1. We want to remind you that registration closes August 31st! Like last year, registration is online only. Your Scout(s) fee will be $180. As an added incentive, if you register by Aug 31st your Scout will receive a Zebco fishing pole! New Scouts will also receive a voucher for Fall Day Camp!


Register here! https://www.adventureiscalling.org/join/Pack-9067


  1. Watch for an Information Night for Parents in September where we will walk through the goals of the program, answer any questions and discuss the Pack’s upcoming events.


  1. Please note that the Pack uses Scoutbook as our primary messaging and calendaring platform. If you are not receiving emails from Scoutbook please opt-in and whitelist their email address so messages do not go into spam/junk.


  1. A note for Parents: if you wish to attend our Pack events, Nativity requires you to have your Virtus training completed (free!).


Virtus training for Parents & Adult Leaders! https://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/


  1. Fill out your Family Talent Survey and bring it to the first meetings.


Here’s a preview of what we are looking forward to this year:

  • Welcome Back/Kickoff Picnic

  • October Halloween/Fall Harvest Celebration

  • Christmas/Winter Event

  • Raingutter Regatta

  • Blue and Gold Dinner

  • Polar Cub Camp

  • Pinewood Derby

  • Spring Picnic

  • Summer Cub Camp


We will also be working with Nativity Parish, School and other organizations to help out where we can. Popcorn sales will continue to be a Scouting staple for those looking to fund camps and extracurricular activities. The Pack is also exploring several new fundraisers to defray future Scout and Camp registration costs (the goal is to be fee free!).


Sincerely, your Pack 67 Committee
