FALL FESTIVAL CAMPING BASKET
Each year, we assist our Chartered Organization, the Blankner PTSA, with putting together a Camping themed basket to be raffled off at the Blankner Fall Festival. We are asking for donations of small items and cash to assist with this. The Pack will purchase the larger items, and we are looking for smaller items like hand wipes, clothesline/rope, tablecloth, aluminum foil, grill spray, glow sticks, etc. All donations are due by the October 5th Pack Meeting. Thank you for your consideration!
Thanks for all the orders thus far! Please see remainder of important dates:
10/8 Afternoon - Popcorn available for pick up from Pack Kernel
10/12 Den Meetings – Pick up your Popcorn at the meeting
10/26 Meeting - Order 2 of 2 due
11/6 Show'n'Sell - Bass Pro Shop, 2:00 - 6:00 pm. The Show'n'Sell consists of signing up for a one-hour time slot to sell popcorn outside of Bass Pro.
11/19 Afternoon - Popcorn available for pick up from Pack Kernel
11/30 Den Meetings – Pick up your Popcorn at the meeting
Scouts accumulate money in their Scout Account when they sell popcorn, camp cards, or other Scout sponsored fundraisers. They also earn money when they volunteer at a Show'n'Sell. Certain percentages are assigned for each fundraiser. You may use funds in your son's account for Scout purchases like Scout day or summer camp, Scout uniforms, etc. Reimbursement from available balance requires a receipt documenting the purchase.
Dues for all Scouts, new and returning, are $85 for the year. This includes a Pack t-shirt. Please see Treasurer this month to pay your dues.
We have electronic and hard copy versions of the handbooks available. Please contact us with your preference. Either one is at no additional cost once a due payment has been made.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday! Stacy
