Planning and conducting a strong program is the best way to keep your Scouts active and interested in Scouting. Funding that program is equally important--otherwise great plans can't become a reality. The annual popcorn sale is a proven approach to ensure that your unit can meet its program and fundraising goals while teaching your Scouts the importance of earning their own way. Units have used the monies they raise to cover the cost of badges and advancement, outings, trips, and summer camp fees.
The popcorn sale is administered by the Cradle of Liberty Council to help make your unit successful. Here are some benefits:
Congratulations to the 538 inaugural members of the Cradle of Liberty Fish Club! By now most units should have received their patches, rods and lures. More than 200 Scouts qualified as full members of the 2015 Fish Club and are invited to the annual Fish Fest event at the USS Cradle of Liberty on Saturday, June 20 at Musser Scout Reservation. This all-day extravaganza is free to all full members of the Fish Club who sold at least $750 of popcorn and will feature music, food and of course FISHING! Save the date.
Congratulations Council Top-Seller Robbie Spiller!
Robbie Spiller of Pack 371 in Constellation District earned a brand new iPad Air after selling a whopping $9,180 in popcorn! The Webelos Scout filled forms by taking a house-by-house and block-by-block approach this fall. Congratulations and good luck on your Scouting Trail.

In an effort to maximize your popcorn sale and ultimately earn more money for your unit, Cradle of Liberty Council allows you to transfer and/or receive product from other units throughout the sale. There is a very important form, called the Popcorn Inventory Transfer Form, that communicates this transaction to the council to ensure accurate records and inventories are kept. Each unit participating in an inventory transfer should fill out their respective portions of the form and retain a copy for their records. It is the responsibility of the TRANSFERRING unit to submit this form to the council office by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax at 610-688-2951.
