Wow-O-woW Pack 834!!!

Posted on: Sunday, October 26th, 2014
I have just concluded the “Official Sales Numbers” for Pack 834 and we raked in an amazing
(can you hear the drum roll?)
(Just building it up a little more suspense)
(How long can I milk this?)
(Okay, okay last one 😉
$31,010 IN TOTAL SALES!!!!!
That’s a whopping $12,404 in commission that these AMAZING boys have earned!!!
and that DOESN’T even include the 40% of donations that they also earn!
That should go a LONG way to paying for a few camping trips!!!
Now I ask that you please be patient as Becky will process your personal sales numbers as quickly as she is able and get them to you very soon. As you can imagine, as it is after 10 pm, I will not be dropping the final orders to her until sometime tomorrow.

What a Haul!

Posted on: Monday, December 16th, 2013

Well we know at least one local needy family will still be able to have a VERY Merry Christmas!

Today I dropped off our collection of gifts for that family to the Willards Elementary School Guidance counselor Mrs. Thompson (Right).

Adopted Family Donation

As I have said before this is my favorite charitable activity that we engage in and it touches my wife especially close. It was incredible to see the generosity of these boys on display.

As always it is an honor to serve the Amazing Pack 834!!!

Congratulations to the hardest working Pack around!!!

Well ladies and gentlemen with the final numbers rolling in for our last official weekend of the 2013 Popcorn Season Pack 834 has raised the bar once again!

Finishing the year with over $36,000 in total sales the Pack wraps up with:

  • 19 Scouts in the $600 Club
  • Every member of our Top 10 with over $1,000
  • Every member of our top 5 with over $2,500
  • And 3 new enrolls into the Scholarship Program!

I am so completely amazed by what this Pack can do! Being in such a rural area it takes a lot of hard work and amazing dedication, by Scouts and parents alike, to put up the sales that these boys do. With good, hard working boys such as these out there the future of our country is very bright!

As always it has been an immense honor to serve these boys in their pursuit of self-reliance.
