The Troop 9 2022 popcorn sale has officially launched! This is the ONLY fundraiser that Troop 9 conducts all year. 73 percent of the money raised stays within the Capitol Area Council to help fund Scout activities in central Texas. In addition, 1/3 of each Scout’s sales will be placed in an individual account to fund future high adventure or camping trips for that Scout!
Our goal is to make $10,000 in popcorn sales, and we are asking each Scout to sell $500 worth of popcorn.
All Scouts and parents should plan to attend the popcorn kickoff meeting on Sunday, August 21. We will help you download the Trail’s End app and provide an overview of this year’s fundraiser.
