2023 Trail's End Popcorn Sale
Popcorn sales can generate enough income to financially support your Scouting program for the entire year! Money from popcorn can be used to cover the cost of camporees, pinewood derbies, field trips, equipment, badges and advancement, and summer camp. Every fall, the Evangeline Area Council conducts its annual popcorn fundraiser. Revenue from popcorn sales help, the council maintain camp properties and service center, provide camperships for Scouts who need financial assistance to attend camp, conduct events such as Leader Trainings and our Centennial Service Project, and provide accident and sickness insurance for chartered organizations, members, and leaders. This annual event offers Scouting groups a simple, safe, effective way to raise money that, in turn, teaches boys speaking skills, confidence and salesmanship. Scouts have the opportunity to earn prizes, trips, and even a college scholarship account based on their total sales.
