Attention Top Unit Leaders (Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, Committee Chairs):

The Occoneechee Council / Trails End Popcorn Campaign has begun!  Unit Sign Up for the 2010-2011 sale ends August 13th!

If your unit participated in the popcorn sale last year, I emailed your kernel from last year, about 2 weeks ago.   I asked them to forward sale information to the Top Leaders of the unit if they were no longer in that unit or would not be the kernel this year.  As of now, I’ve heard from only a handful of units, leading me to believe the information has not gotten out to you as it should have!  I was also at Roundtable and made my announcement there, so if you were there last Thursday- then you have this form!

All units participating in popcorn must fill out the Unit Commitment Sheet by August 13th!  This sheet should be faxed or emailed back to Laurie Gillie (contact info on sheet).  I know your new scout year has probably not started yet, but leaders must get together to decide if your unit will participate this year.  I need Scout/Cub Master, Popcorn Kernel, and Treasurer Contact info for every unit participating!

Questions?  Email me at or call me at 919-400-6993.  I will send out an email by the end of the week with important details about our Unit Kickoff Event!
