Have you noticed the army of small Cub Scouts in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff pulling wagons filled with popcorn? It is time for the annual Cub Scout Popcorn Sale.
Cub Scouts are in the process of conducting their only fundraiser of the year. Boys ages 6 to 10 are selling bags and boxes of unpopped and popped popcorn. Popcorn sales teach Scouts how to approach people and talk to them as well as raising funds for Cub Scout activities.
Scouting is about learning to be self-sufficient and popcorn sales teach the boys to perservere. Each Scout is trying to achieve their own personal goal as well as contribute to their Pack’s goal.
The Cub Scout motto is “Do your best”. If you see a Scout selling popcorn, then help him to do his best to reach his goal and support our local Cub Scouts!
