Popcorn - Still time for Online Sales!!!!! Take Orders due 10/17.

Posted on Oct 15 2017 - 10:18pm

Hello Troop 161 Scouts and Families,

Just a reminder- All take-orders (order forms and money) are due by Tuesday October 17th at 6:30 pm prior to the Troop 161 Meeting.  We would like to accept all orders prior to the weekly meeting so as not to take away from the boy-led meeting  On-line orders are due by 11:59 pm October 27th.  If you are turning in any take-orders, please make sure your scout brings in the take-order form completed and the entire payment included.  You will receive a copy of your take order form before you leave. Your original form will be returned to you at take-order pick-up time.
If your scout has not sold any popcorn, it is not too late. Your scout can still sell online until 11:59 pm October 27th.  Each scout has their own Trails-end account and can use that account to make online sales by email.  If you need help with your login, please email the Popcorn Kernel at troop161popcorn@gmail.com.  Online sales generate a higher percent of commission (45% Commission versus the 29% take-order commission).    Please understand, the commission earned by our Troop is used to finance advancement activities and for maintaining and purchasing Troop equipment.  Also, a percentage of our overall sales is given to the Council for investment into supporting your unit, and into local programs and supplies. For example, a bunch of the materials you received for free to support your popcorn sale this year, came from popcorn. New program equipment like bows and arrows,and facility improvements like composite decking at Cub World were also funded in part by popcorn.

Court Of Honor - Vounteers needed!!!

Posted on Oct 8 2017 - 11:53pm

Dear Scouts and Parents  - Our Court of Honor is in just over two weeks, on 10/24.  This is a chance for all of our scouts to be recoginzed for the hard work they gave put in over the several months. Traditionally the troop has a pot luck dinner on the this evening.  We are still in need of an adult to coordinate the food.  Volunteers will not  need to  cook anything extra, just to coordinate which scouting family brings which dish.  Can you please send an e-mail to announce@troop161.org to let us know who can help?
