2017 Popcorn Sale

Teaching Scouts to "earn their way" is part of the Scouting Program and the money raised is a means to support the program. The life lessons learned with selling popcorn vary from counting money to public speaking to salesmanship. Selling popcorn is a vital part of the council's annual budget and helps lower the cost of Scouting. 73% of money raised with popcorn sales goes to local Scouts to fund their troops and scouting adventures.

This year, To go along with our popcorn sales this year, units will be able to offer coupon booklets for Dunkin Donuts, Amato's, Cinemagic, and Subway! Units receive 35% of sales on each booklet sold!

The next time a Scout knocks on your door or you walk by their table outside a supermarket, please consider supporting Maine Scouts by purchasing some popcorn or a coupon book!
