2023 Popcorn Sale
We would like to introduce you to the Pecatonica River Popcorn Company. We Host a Popcorn Fundraiser every year to assist local units and Scouts in raising money to pay for Summer Camps, Programs, and supplies. Any fundraised by the council is contributed to valuable programs such as training volunteers to be better Scouts, lowering the program's cost for Scouts, and sustaining camp facilities. Purchasing popcorn outside of a retail store (show-and-sell) or ordering popcorn (take-order), is the easiest way to help units raise money. Over 70% of all sales dollars remain here to support our Scouts at the council and the unit level.
