Trails-end Popcorn Sale is the key fundraising program offered through the Council that provides fun to Scouts who experience the satisfaction of making and achieving their sales goal. Top sellers earn great prizes and other recognition, including a Popcorn Party at the end of the season for top sellers. In addition, the campaign provides funds for Scouting operations through the year, with over 70% of sales going toward local programs.

Unit Sign Ups will begin in late Spring of 2018

For more information, contact Ralph Snyder, Council Kernel, by email or phone, 813-872-2691 ext. 133.
