Volunteers Needed to Help With Next Popcorn Sale

Hi All,

Troop 410 held its first “Show N Sell” popcorn sale in front of IGA in Northport this Saturday and it was a resounding success. We have three more sales events scheduled:

Saturday, November 1 – Stop N Shop Northport (2 tables, one at each entrance)

Sunday, November 2 – Stop N Shop Northport (2 tables, one at each entrance)

Saturday, November 8 – Stop N Shop Northport (Probably 1 table)

A minimum of one adult is needed at each table to supervise the boys. Andy Fox has generously volunteered to man one of the tables on November 2 and Marty Joyce has volunteered to do November 8. Both Joe Aiello and myself worked the table this weekend. But we still need adult volunteers to supervise both tables on November 1 and the second table on November 2. It isn’t hard to do…we worked out all the kinks this weekend.

The leader base in our troop is pretty small and is over subscribed handling other troop events so we haven’t been able to fill these slots from within the troop leadership.

I’d like to ask some of the parents to volunteer to supervise the tables so we don’t have to cancel these critical fundraising events, as they are clearly an effective way to raise needed troop funds and they were difficult to obtain the permission to do.

So please check your schedules and see if you can free up some time (from 11-3) on those dates to help the troop reach its fundraising goals for the year. We need your help.

First Popcorn Show N Sell Event

Hi All,

Troop 410 will be holding its first popcorn Show N Sell event this Saturday from 11 – 3 outside the IGA on Route 25A in Northport. Due to the overwhelming show of interest in attending this event by the boys at the signup last Wednesday, we were unable to schedule all who were interested at this first event. There will be additional sales held on November 1, 2, and 8 so there will be plenty of opportunities besides this one, so everyone that wants a chance to attend should be able to do so.

Those who were selected, as well as the alternates are shown below with their scheduled selling time slot.

IMPORTANT: Please confirm your child’s availability for the time slot shown below via return e-mail as soon as possible. Responses must be received by Friday afternoon at the latest. If all slots have not been confirmed by Friday afternoon, the alternates will be given the next option to take those slots. After that, if slots remain we’ll open it up to the whole troop.

This is a full Class A uniform event, and scouts are reminded that they are representing the Troop in the community, so please act accordingly. The total sales from each event will be divided and credit apportioned to each scout based on their attendance time and level of participation, so please make sure your scout signs in and out of the event and participates actively at the sale.
