Troop 32 Scout soars out of gate with online sale

Evan E. has come flying out of the gates with his online popcorn sale’s effort, having sold $640 in the first week for Troop 32 as of Aug. 20. Be sure to use the online sales platform as one of your methods this year, along with Show and Sell and Take Order.

Return policy clarification

To clarify, Show & Sell product can be returned by Oct. 26. The point of open cases not being accepted back at the return date applies to any product a unit may have after the “Take Order” portion of the sale, which is after the Oct. 26 date. As always, melted or damaged product, dented items, ripped boxes or single item cases with no box, will not be accepted at any time.

Mid-season Show & Sell, chocolate ordering available by Sept. 9

NEW THIS YEAR is the mid-season Show & Sell and chocolate ordering option for all units. If your unit did not participate in the August Show & Sell and now wish to order some product for your Show & Sell efforts, or if you are ready to order some of the chocolate related products, you will be able to do so prior to the Sept. 9 deadline to order. Simply go to your unit account and order the products you need. These products will then be available for pickup Sept. 21. Details will be coming on locations.

Mt. Adventure Reward begin

Mt. Adventure Rewards started Aug. 12! Each week, one Scout will win a $2,500 family vacation, while 1,750 other Scouts instantly win a $10 Amazon Gift Card.
