Need a Popcorn FUNdraiser Chair(s)

Posted on Jul 26 2016 - 5:43pm

It's almost time for our annual Pack 281 FUNdraiser!  Our Pack relies on this single fundraiser to help pay for events, advancements, and items for our Scouts throughout the year.  We have been able to keep our annual dues at the same level for years due to our outstanding success with this one fundraiser.  We need someone (or partners! :) to chair this fundraiser. We have all information (and past years forms, emails, etc.) on how to do this - just need someone to carry it out!  Please email Louise if you are interested:  arias.louise@gmail.com Here are the things that the Chair(s) would be responsible for:

The Capital City District will be having BALOO training Saturday July 23, 2016 at Cordova Church of Christ 10577 Coloma Rd, Rancho Cordova, CA 95670.The class will cover the basics of planning, cooking, equipment, campfire planning, health & safety. Register is online at BALOO Training.  Pack 281 will reimburse registration for any adults who would like to get trained!  If you have any questions please contact Kim Perry-Reed at kperryr@gmail.com or 916-203-5711
