Montanans Purchase $1.7 Million Worth of Boy Scout popcorn

Posted on 01 January 2008 by admin


Montana Council has released its sales data for the 2007 Trails End Popcorn Sale. The total gross sales for this year’s Boy Scout popcorn sale were a record $1,768,464. Scouts showed more than a ten percent increase, $164,962, over last year’s sales of $1,603,502.

Top Scout salesman in Montana Council was Jaben Wood, Troop 1933, who sold $15,600 of popcorn. Kerry Ketchum, Montana Council Popcorn Kernel, reports over $80,000 worth of popcorn was purchased by generous Montanans for active duty servicemen and women in Iraq and around the world.

“The popcorn sale is the Boy Scouts’ top unit fundraiser,” says Gordon Rubard, the Montana Council’s Scout Executive. Montana Scouts depend heavily on the proceeds from the sale to help pay for their basic Scouting needs, such as summer camps, leadership courses, and materials for local community service projects. The Montana Boy Scouts thank everyone who supported this year’s popcorn sale!
