“Mission Poppable!” 2015 Natchez Trace Popcorn Sale
It’s popcorn time again in the Natchez Trace District! Selling popcorn is a great way to help supplement the unit’s budget allowing your unit to experience even more program during the year. This year’s popcorn selling season will be very exciting with a new fun opportunity. In the Natchez Trace District, there will be ten mystery houses with various gift cards for the first scout to stop by knock on their door. The denominations will be $15, $25 or $40! Clues hinting at the location of these houses will be released weekly throughout the popcorn season. More information regarding the mystery houses will be available when the popcorn sale officially begins in August. Contact Logan McCoy for Popcorn related questions.
