Its Popcorn Season!

Posted by akesl on Sep 1 2015 - 10:16pm
 It's Popcorn Season!  
The #1 thing you can do to be successful is set a Goal!
How much popcorn are you going to sell ?  Challenge yourself, challenge your fellow scouts.
How much money will you earn ?  
Decide on a Goal and make Plan.  The Plan is no more than which dates/times you will
go out and sell popcorn.  Remember on average 1 hour selling = $100 of sales.
So set a Goal.  Make a plan.  Commit and stick to it.
Remember collect money at time of the sale.
Good Luck!
Oct 12 and 19th are the dates to turn in your orders to Mr. Lydon. 

Welcome to our new Treasurer!

Meet, Sue Redmond, our new Troop Treasurer:

I have been involved with Scouts for about 15 years.  I started out as a Den Mother for Wolf Scouts (Pack 422 at St. Catherine, Kennesaw).  I published the Pack newsletter and ran the Pack's website.  I moved up with my Scouts to Troop 422.  I started out as Merit Badge Counselor Coordinator and ended as Advancement Chair when we moved to the Nashville, TN area in 2007.  My son and I joined Troop 422 (not at typo!) in Smyrna, TN.  That first summer, Troop 422 from St. Catherines attended the same summer camp that 422 Smyrna attended.  My son, Eric, asked Scoutmaster Wells if he could attend with their Troop and he did. (Our heart has always remained with this Troop!) Eric reached Eagle Scout with the Troop in Nashville and I continued as Treasurer with the Troop until we moved to California for a new job.  3 1/2 years later we are back in Kennesaw.  I have volunteered most of my life.  I ran into Brad very soon after moving back to GA and I knew right away I wanted to be back with the Troop!  I look forward to getting to know you and your Scouts.

To encourage the development of good communication skills, Troop 422 requests that scouts conduct business by calling or meeting in person. This means that parents are asked not to call, email, or text, and scouts are asked not to email or text to initiate contact.

Using announce@troop422.us

Please do not reply to any emails from "announce@troop422.us". This address broadcasts to the whole troop so everyone will get your reply. Instead, see from whom the email came and reply just to that person.

When you send an email now using the announce address, please cc yourself as a recipient. I believe this will make it so others can see who the original sender was. MyTroop/SOAR recently had to change the send settings for announce emails to get around some filtering issues with a few major email providers like Yahoo and ATT. Sorry for the inconvenience.
