IMPORTANT ANNOUCEMENT AFFECTING OUR COUNCIL'S
WAWA SHOW AND SELL WEEKEND
Due to the visit of the Pope to the Philadelphia area the weekend of September 26th and 27th (our Council’s Wawa Show and Sell weekend) and the fact that Wawa is a large sponsor of the event with many of their stores and employees being involved in the logistics of the visit, the Washington Crossing Council received an email this afternoon from Corporate Wawa stating that any group scheduled to have having a store front sale at a Wawa that weekend is having their slots rescheduled to a different date.
Our new official Wawa Show and Sell weekend will now be the following weekend- October 3rd and 4th. The store assignment, day and time your unit had received will be transferred to this new date. You do not need to do anything else at this time. (As the date gets closer however we recommend that you get in touch with the store manager to finalize details for your display.)
Since this is an unfortunate last minute change in dates which we had no control over, we are aware that not every unit will be able to switch to the new weekend. If your unit can’t use its assigned time and store in October, please let Popcorn Staff Advisor John Erskine know as soon as possible so he can offer it out to other units who may be able to utilize the date instead. This new weekend is the only one that Wawa is giving our council.
We're just Poppin' with Excitement!
Council Kernel Adrienne Rubin welcomes you to the 2015 Popcorn Sale!
Popcorn enables your unit to do the things you want without having to do numerous fund raisers. By selling popcorn in the fall, it can support the entire year of scouting for your unit. Not only does it help raise funds for your unit but there are plenty of rewards for your scouts as well.
Dens and patrols can earn prizes, gift cards, scholarship money, and for all scouts who sell $600 or more, they can get their very own Fire-Tek rocket which consists of a launcher and light-up rockets!
We have assembled a tasty line-up of products at different prices that customers will enjoy as they support scouting by purchasing popcorn. And remember- over 70% of the purchases go back to our local scouting programs!
Do you have any general popcorn questions? If so, you are welcome to contact Antoinette Layton, staff advisor John Erskine or to call the Scout Service Center at 215-348-7205 to get your answers.
