Members of Boy Scout Troop 731 in Sallisaw are selling popcorn as their major fundraiser of the year.
Their popcorn products include microwave popcorn on up to large colorful canisters of already popped corn, in amazing flavors. The flavors range from extra buttery microwave corn to roasted summer corn, to cheese, to cinnamon to caramel to chocolate. Prices range from $10 to $50 and, on average, 70 percent of every dollar goes back to the Scouts.
The money is used for scouting adventures, to help the Scouts serve their communities and help them grow into strong young men.
In addition this fundraiser also includes a program that sends popcorn to the military serving overseas for a donation of $25.
The Scouts’ moms, Nan Stites and Elaine Sommer, were helping the Scouts sell the popcorn. To place an order contact Stites at 918-781-3565. She said the Scouts will be selling their popcorn products at a Sallisaw business on an upcoming Saturday. Sommer is the fundraising coordinator and said the last day to order popcorn is Oct. 9.
