Who’s knocking at my door? Boy Scout popcorn fundraiser starts this weekend

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.

Yes! Southborough Cub Scout Packs 1 and 926 will be selling Christmas wreaths and Hannukah candles from October 18th through November 16th, in order to raise funds for pack activities.
The money raised will allow the boys to participate in camping trips, overnight trips, activities that teach them skills and more. It also helps to fund some of the community service projects done for our town by Cub Scouts. In addition, the scouts gain social skills, and some money management skills.
These young scouts will be in uniform when they come to your door, and they will be with a parent or guardian. Please be friendly when they knock at your door, and consider supporting a wonderful organization.

A scout came to my door on Pine Hill Road. Later as I walked up the driveway, I found his list of the popcorn he had sold. His name was not on the list. Anyone know who this might be? I would love to get this back to him.

Never mind! He just came back for his list.
