Corn Feed

Hello Everyone,


 would like to remind all of you about our Corn Feed and August Roundtable coming up on August 20th at Christ the King, 8600 Fremont Ave. S., Bloomington.  We will serve dinner at 6:30 and start our regular roundtable program at 7:30. 


Dinner will include burgers, hotdogs, chips, and of course corn!  A $5 donation is suggested to help cover the cost of food. 


This is primarily a fun evening to kick off the Scouting year, with food and fellowship, but we will be having a School Night for Scouting training, along with a brief recharter training.  All packs must have at least one representative attend the training and pick up their promotion supplies (posters, yard signs, book marks, stickers, etc.).  Children are welcome to attend, we will have coloring pages and crayons available to help keep them entertained during the training portion of the night, but will not have an organized activity.




Popcorn is right around the corner

If you haven’t already, make sure to get your unit signed up for the popcorn sale and one of the Super Saturday Seminars. In addition to the Super Saturday Seminars, we will be holding a popcorn training August 11th at 6:30 PM at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 8600 Fremont Ave S. Bloomington, MN.

Erik Martz will be our popcorn chair again this year, and Nicole Murray will continue to help him. If you have questions as we get into the sale these two are here and ready to help!

Our Show and Sell Popcorn Distribution will be September 10th from 3-7 PM. We expect this will be held at Freightmasters in Eagan again, watch your e-mail for more information as we get closer.

School Night for Scouting

Plans are well underway for School Night for Scouting. Right now we are working on getting all of the schools secured through the district Community Education offices, and should have all approved by the end of July. Make sure to attend our August and September Roundtable for more information and to receive your promotional materials and rockets.
