Memorial Day Service Project

In Honor of our Military Heroes
Hi Scouts,
Our pack will be participating in Loma Vista Park’s  75th Annual Memorial Day Program.  We will be laying small flags and crosses on the graves of our brave service men and women who are buried there.  This a wonderful event for both scouts and parents as we say “thank you” to those who served our country so well.
We will meet at Loma Vista at 7:45 a.m. on Saturday, May 25, 2013, dressed in our Class A uniforms.

Popcorn Fundraiser: It’s almost over!

Hi Scouts and Scout Families,

As quickly as popcorn season got here, it is now almost over.  All of you did a terrific job at the Show-n-Sell at the church and the banks. 46 scouts sold close to $3000 in product in those three days. Those scouts are now eligible for the raffle of the iPods and other cool prizes at our pack meeting on Sunday, October 21st at St. Angela Abraham Room.

For those of you who are interested in selling bags of popcorn in your own neighborhood or Show-n-Deliver, we have some inventory left.  Click HERE to go to our Pack store and order some of the remaining popcorn.  Supplies are very limited and will not last long.  We’ll arrange a pick up with you.

The Take Order forms for both the popcorn and first aid kits are due by Friday, October 26.  I must have those in or else we cannot order your products.  If you have been collecting money along with your orders, we can take those too.  Please exchange all collected cash for a check made out to the pack prior to turning your money. You can either give them to me or to Mr. Remley.

Popcorn distribution will be on Saturday, November 17 at St. Angela and all the money will be due on Friday, December 7.

I can’t tell you how terribly proud we are of all of you.  We are so close to earning enough money for our new Pinewood Derby Track.  Don’t stop until you hit your goal!!!

Yours in Popcorn,

Church Show-n-Sell

Hi Scout Families:

This Sunday is our first Show-and-Sell event at the Church.  All Scouts and Leaders should wear their Class A uniforms. We will be selling at the front entrance to the church, the side entrance to the plaza near the parking lot, and the back entrance near the church office.  Unfortunately, we will not be allowed in the plaza.

Therefore, we will need a two small tables per shift and would appreciate if any parent could bring one.  You will be able to take it home after the shift.

Note, we still have openings at the banks next weekend.  Please sign up HERE if you are interested.

2012 Popcorn and First Aid Kit fundraiser

Hi Scouts,
Our fundraising season has officially started.  We sell Trail’s End Popcorn and RightResponse First Aid kits to raise money for our pack’s activities. You should have received the popcorn order forms in the mail by now and I will be passing out first aid kit order forms at our next meeting.  There are a number of great prizes from OCBSA this year and I hope you get out there and start selling right away.

As good as OCBSA rewards our scouts, you know that we, at Pack 811, do it better.  We have special prizes for the top two sellers and some awesome prizes for those who sell a large amount of popcorn and first aid kits.  I’ll give you the details about them at our first Pack Meeting on September 16.

As an incentive, we will raffle off an iPod Shuffle and some other prizes for any scout who brings in just $100 in orders to our September Pack Meeting.

We sell popcorn and kits in THREE WAYS.  The first is by Take-Order. Using the order forms,  you simply “take orders” from friends and family and deliver their popcorn and kits on November 17.  The second method is Show and Sell.  We will be selling popcorn and kits at S.A.M. church on Sunday, September 23 and Bank of America and Popular bank on Friday September 28 and Saturday, September 29. Each scout is limited to one shift for the Church AND one shift for the banks.  Please click here to sign up for the shifts.  Any scout who participates will be in a drawing for 1 of 4 iPod shuffles.  A shift at church is 1 raffle ticket and a shift at the bank is 3 raffle tickets.

The last method is Show and Deliver.  You order your own bags of popcorn and kits which you can sell directly to customers door to door beginning September 22nd.  Please click here to place your order no later than September 3.  Please choose the amount carefully because you are responsible for all the popcorn and kits you order.  There are no returns.  Also, the Show and Deliver popcorn cannot be used to fill your Take Order Sales.  In other words, you cannot double count.

In the past, the money earned through popcorn helped fund all of our outings and awards.  This year, we will be saving it to purchase something truly awesome for the Pack that will benefit our scouts for many years.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us. I have extra order sheets if you need them.  Good luck and happy selling.

Yours in Scouting,

Christian Lising

Family Camp is Coming!!!

What’s up campers!  Family camp is less than 2 weeks away so get all the camping gear out.  Here is some critical information about our trip:

We will be camping at the Cabrillo Beach Youth Waterfront Sports Center in San Pedro.  We will be swimming, canoeing, row boating, kayaking, touring a museum, and hike to the tide pools.
The address is 3000 Shoshonean Road, San Pedro.  Click here for directions to the camp site.  Arrive between 4:00 pm and 7 pm.
Please set up your tent at the designated area.  Please do not leave a lot of space between the tents because we have a lot of tents to set up.  There will be plenty of experienced campers ready to help out.  If you do not have a tent please email Christian
Meals on Saturday and Sunday morning are provided by the camp.  All families should bring a picnic dinner for Friday evening.  Please click here for the complete list of items to bring.
Please click here for the agenda of events and FAQ’s.  After we are set up on Friday, everyone who will be doing any activity in the water must do the SWIM CHECK. This is really not a big deal.  All it does it helps identify those who can go on the water crafts alone and those who can swim in the deep end of the pool.
As we have done in the past, we will be having our campfire on Saturday evening. Each den will perform a skit.  In addition, we would like every family to perform a skit, song, or other performance.  Families may work with other families.  I have  a book of skits if anyone needs ideas.  Please submit your ideas to Christian or Brad on or before Friday evening.
Please contact us if you have any questions.

In Honor Of Our Military Heroes

Hi Scouts,
Loma Vista Memorial Park in Fullerton has asked our pack to help them with their 74th Annual Memorial Day Program.  We will help lay small flags and crosses on the graves of those brave service men and women who are buried there.  This is a great event for both the scouts as well as their parents.  It allows our boys, in a small way, to say thank you to those who served us so well.
We will meet at Loma Vista at 7:45 a.m. this Saturday morning, May 26, dressed in our Class A uniforms.

Three Ways to Sell Popcorn and First Aid Kits!

Three ways to sell popcorn and first aid kits

Hi Scouts!
We now have 3 ways to sell popcorn and first aid kits.
The first one you know about, the Take Home Orders.  You take your order forms and go door-to-door.  Your customer chooses the products they want to buy and you deliver it on November 19th.

The second way is Show-n-Sell.  This is when we sell popcorn and kits directly to customers at  St. Angela Merici Church and at the banks.  There is a couple of little twists this year.  At St. Angela, we can only have 4  boys selling at each mass on Saturday September 24th, and Sunday, September 25th and each scout MUST have a parent present.  The shift is 45 minutes so sign up as soon as possible.

We will be selling at two banks, Bank of America and Banco Popular, on Friday, September 30th and Saturday October 1, and each shift is only 1 1/2 hours long.  We need as many boys as we can for these days.

Each shift at church, earns you ONE raffle ticket.  Shifts at the banks are worth TWO raffle tickets.  We will be raffling off iPrizes at our pack meeting in October.

Our newest way to sell is Show-n-Deliver.  Scouts will be able to order their own separate set of popcorn and kits . Customers are able to select from your product selection.  You then hand over the product and collect the money right then and there.  Place your order before September 2nd from the link below and you will receive your shipment on September 24th.  You are responsible for these items and payment for them is due on November 1.  If you are unable to sell your products by October 22nd, you can return up to 10% of your order to us.  Please choose carefully.

You can find the copies order forms, Show-n-Sell schedule, and Show-n-Deliver order site in the link below.

Good Luck and Happy Selling!!!
