Adult Volunteer Opportunity - Popcorn Kernal's assistant for 2014 Popcorn Sale Drive

Posted by admin on Apr 16 2014 - 2:55pm

Parents, we have an easy and fun volunteer opportunity for one adult to volunteer to assist Jessica White on the 2014 Popcorn sales drive that is held annually in the Fall.   It is a lot of fun and requires a few meetings, help organizing the sales packets, turning in the order and helpding coordinate the distribution.   Ideally, we'd like a parent of a younger scout that could learn the ropes this year and then be the lead Popcorn Kernal for two years.   Jessica has loved this position and has held it for 4 years because it is a fun way to help the Troop.   If you're interested, please email webmaster@dallas730.mytroop.us.   Thank you!

Don't forget to Turn in Your Scout Book!

Posted by admin on Apr 16 2014 - 2:54pm

Scouts, at every Advancement Meeting (there is at least one per month) please remember to turn in your Scout book to the Advancement Coordinator (currently, Mrs. Martin) so she can input the data into the Troop's software, Troopmaster.   We want to record your successes!  Alternatively, please scan in the advancement pages of your Scout book and email them to advancement@dallas730.mytroop.us and we'll get your sign-offs recorded and you'll have a scanned back-up copy in case (or when) you lose your book.  Thanks!
