Door Hangers

The 20,000 door hangers that the council ordered have all been spoken for by units.

These units will be able to pick up door hangers on September 10 or 11 at the distribution locations listed above. If your unit didn't order popcorn for delivery in September, contact your district executive to pick up the door hangers.

What if your unit isn't on the list to receive door hangers?

The cheapest alternative would be to buy some door hanger stock from Amazon and print your own supply using the pdf file on the popcorn webpage. Vista Print, Office Max and Office Depot may also be able to print the door hangers for a reasonable cost.
Unit Popcorn Kickoffs

We hope that every unit is planning to conduct a Popcorn Kickoff - either in person or a virtual meeting.

Please use the link below to participate in a short survey (even if you aren't planning to have a kickoff).

We already have tools available for you to use at your kickoff - including slides from the Key Leader Briefing, goal setting forms for Scouts and a sales calendar for Scouts to use to track their progress towards reaching their goal. More items and videos to be added in the near future.

If you were NOT planning to do a Kickoff, but would welcome a district representative to do one for your unit, make sure to complete the survey below.

Much more information is on the council's popcorn page! It is being updated almost daily with new information. Make sure to visit on a regular basis!

If there is something you would like added to the popcorn webpage, please send your idea to Darin Steindl.
