Galactic View for 2016 Scout Popcorn


Hi Troop 56,

Stacey Stalcup, Glenn Funkhouser, and I will be supporting the Troop 56 popcorn efforts this year, whose official theme is “Galactic” (Shhh, we really want “Star Wars” but you can use other thematic ideas too; Star Trek is also good :).

Some key popcorn dates for your information:
* Sale Begins – September 17 – We will have show and sells for Scout participation
* All unsold popcorn to be returned to the Troop – October 17
* Sale Ends – October 23
* Final Orders Due – November 1
* Final Order delivery November 16 – 19

In the next week or so you will receive in the US mail the 2016 Scout Popcorn order form, which will contain info on the popcorn products. Additional general information is at .

We will be kicking off the popcorn season with some info and Galactic (“Star Wars”) prizes for the Scouts at the first Scout meeting on August 15th.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
