Latest News

Below is the latest news for our District.

Fall Popcorn Sale

Scouting units can earn enough money through the fall popcorn fundraising sale to fund the rest of their Scouting year!  Would you like for your Scouts to attend summer camp, participate in Scouting events, and be recognized for their achievements all at no additional cost?  Encourage Scouts to sell popcorn! Need new unit equipment? Sell popcorn!

Most unit fundraisers max out at 50% profit and raise funds needed to support the unit. Last year, more than 73% of gross retail popcorn sales were returned to support Scouting – benefiting Scouts, units, districts, and the council.  You can be proud to sell Trail’s End popcorn because the products are delicious and the proceeds benefit everyone.

Unit Fundraisers

Each year, thousands of youth depend upon the money earned from unit fundraisers to attend summer camp, pay for annual registration or attend monthly activities.  As you’re planning your unit’s 2018-2019 calendar, don’t forget to decide when you’d like to do your 2019 Family Friends of Scouting presentation!  Contact katerush@crossroadsbsa.org to schedule your 2019 Friends of Scouting presentation.
