Boy Scout Troop 273 - Delano, Minnesota
Welcome to Troop 273
From ASM Bruce via email dated 09/20/16:
Hello Troop 273 Scouts and Parents,
The information packet regarding our annual Wreath & Popcorn Fundraiser was handed out to Scouts last evening. This is one of our largest fundraisers for the year and it’s not only a great opportunity to help the Troop, but it can also fund your Scout’s individual account for the upcoming year. As a parent, I know there are a lot of fundraisers for each group or activity that your sons (or daughters) are involved with,
but this is one that the Scout can do with minimal parent effort.
A typical scout spends about $500 a year on camping (including summer camp). To pay for that year, a scout needs about $1800 in sales. Very Attainable!
A few dates to keep in mind: Wreath sales officially started with the handout of the packet last evening. Popcorn sales officially begin at 5:00pm, this Friday, September 23. Wreath and Popcorn orders will need to be turned in at the Troop meeting on Monday, October 24. That means Scouts only have 4 weeks to reach their individual goals. Don’t procrastinate!
For the Popcorn fundraiser, we have an option called “Show and Sell”. For those not familiar, this is where the scout has the physical product with them when selling door to door. We have already taken delivery on a limited supply of various popcorn items and it’s currently in our warehouse (our living room) awaiting pick-up. If you want to participate in this option, Contact Bruce @ 763.954.1030 to set up a pick-up time.
Otherwise, for questions or to get a packet (if you weren’t at the meeting), contact:
