2018 Popcorn Fund Raiser

Posted by bheldke on Sep 18 2018 - 8:39am

9/17/2018 UPDATE:

Popcorn and forms are available this week Tuesday and Thursday  6:30 to 8:30 PM at my house, Saturday 8:00-11:00  AM.  .  Text the popcorn hotline before you stop by: 313-805-6312.  At our Monday meeting, we distributed lots of popcorn and order forms.  GREAT JOB!  Keep it up!

DID YOU KNOW?  For every $20 you sell, 73% or $14.60 stays in SE Michigan.  The Troop gets 37% or $7.40.  Once you're over $200 in sales, you're keeping roughly half of what the troop gets or $3.60.  It's a win/win/win!  

Sellers:  sign up electronically for the Salesmanship merit badge--you will be instructed as to when/where we are meeting.  (you can take another merit badge and sell popcorn simultaneously, ask me for deatils).  


Popcorn is the officially sanctioned fund raiser for not only the troop, but for the council who oversees the running of all the camps in Michigan.  Money from this fund raiser goes to putting on events for scouts and keeping the camps in good working order.

All scouts are encouraged to participate.  This year's goal is to at least hit our five year average, or $23,000.  That is only $125 per scout, which is really, really easy to do. 

I will host several pick up times before scout meetings commence so that you can check out an amount to sell door to door.  Watch for those times coming soon. 



All the specifics on the popcorn fundraiser will be listed to the left in the Menu under Popcorn Sales

Cyberchip opportunities

Posted by bheldke on Aug 24 2018 - 5:14pm
Many of you approached me at summer camp and during the Canoeing MB with questions on earning your Cyberchip for rank advancement or for MB purposes. I am here to help you but there are some work that needs to be done on your own and with your family. I placed all the requirements needed on the Troop website at https://www.troop755.org/node/10138
please take a look and let me know if you have any questions. I will be available to meet with you prior to the start of our scouts meeting, however, you need to bring a parent so we can meet the two deep leadership. I can meet with you at Barnes and Nobles on 6 mile and Haggerty.
Good luck, 
Mr. Atala
