2018 Snack Stick Fundraiser
Let's face it parents, we grew up in a different time. As kids, nothing was handed to us. We either worked or helped to earn our rewards: money, an activity with friends, or something we wanted. Scouting still believes in and stands for the core value of earning!

Benefits to Our Pack
We plan to make this our MAIN fundraiser for the year - so we need everyone to participate! Selling snack sticks makes Scouting a great experience for our sons, siblings and parents. This allows us to purchase awards and recognition's, keep our website and tracking software running, pay for office expenses, supplies, and everything our Pack needs to run a well rounded program. Let's do a good job and get it done!
