OK Here goes my first attempt at communicating using the DE Minute. It's been a crazy week, so I'll begin with Monday.
We had a great pizza party to honor all of the Scouts that sold over $500 worth of product during the fall sale. Congratulations to Noah Moyer from Pack 33, he sold $2,608. And Congratulations to Jimmy Styer who won the free week of camp. We also launched the spring sale. The commission for peanuts is 30% and candy is 20%.
The Spring sale consists of Howe Candy and Virginia Diner peanuts. The Howe Candy company is sponsoring prizes for the sales of their product. Each unit received a prize sheet to share with the scouts. If you need more, please let me know at the office. The top seller in each unit will receive a prize in addition to anyone who sells the goal outlined on the form. There will be an additional drawing at the end of 2 weeks to the top 3 salesmen. They will each receive a $20 gift card for Dunham's. To be eligible, you must email me the count of product sold by 2/28. One last opportunity for the spring sale is, for every $200 in product sold, you will earn the opportunity to dunk either myself or Paul Knox at our spring carnival. WooHoo!!! Bring it on!
Tuesday was our membership meeting for all of the M&M chairs. We finished the year with a 3% gain in membership. Great work everyone!
Wednesday was the District Committee. We elected the new members at large. I'm excited to say that we have a good committee this year that is eager to get the district moving. They will be working on Family Friends of Scouting donations and Community Friends of Scouting Fund raising. This will be a huge undertaking this year as we all work together.
Last weekend the 2017 Merit Badge College was a huge success! Thank you to Bob Hewlett and his team for all of their hard work and dedication to the event.
Looking forward, please note that the first-aid competition information can be found on our website under activities.
Have a great weekend!
