Popcorn Spin ‘N’ Win Party

Our Popcorn Spin ‘N’ Win Party was a huge success!  Scouts who sold over $750 in popcorn where invited to the special party which was held on Saturday, December 5.  Each Scout got to bring two guests for a pizza lunch, free t-shirt and the opportunity to spin the wheel for great prizes.  Everyone had a great time and Scouts got to leave with two prizes each and a few got to take a third prize home.  Congratulations to our Top Seller, Bryson Bales (pictured below) from San Joaquin District, Troop 60!  Bryson sold $5,720 – incredible job, well done Bryson!
