Troop 92 asked me to let the town know that their scouts are out raising funds this month.
Of course, the scouts will be easy to identify. They should be in uniform when they come to your door. They should be shadowed by an adult. (So if you see a “suspicious adult” loitering on the street, look to see if he’s trailing a scout before calling it in!)
Troop 92’s annual popcorn fundraiser runs through October 28. (Orders will be delivered the week of November 16.)
As in past years, the scouts will be selling popping corn, microwave popcorn and pre-popped flavored varieties. 70% of the money stays to support the local scouts.
This is the troop’s main fundraiser for the year.
It is the money raised from these sales that allows the boys to learn how to plan for and participate in camping trips, hiking trips, kayaking and so much more.
It funds some of the community service projects done for the town by the scouts.
It also teaches them goal setting, time management and planning skills by having to conduct the sale themselves.
So, if a Boy Scout knocks on your door, please be friendly. And consider supporting their troop.
