2017 Spring Peanut Sale

Who:  All Scouts and those wishing to support Scouting!

What:  Selling the BEST Peanuts in America-Whitley Peanuts! Whitley’s was the winner in our taste test of the three most popular brands! We think your customers will love it! Our Spring Product Sale is geared toward helping Scouts earn money for camp and other activities. Our sale will focus on a variety of nuts.

When:  January 15th - March 30th

Why:  Earn money for fun and "stuff"

How:  Show order form(s) to everyone you know. Ask them to support you. Scouts know the ninth point of the Scout Law states that a Scout is “thrifty.” One thing we try to teach is the value of “earning your own way,” whether it be a week at camp, a trip, or the ability to purchase a new uniform or supplies at out Scout Shop. Want to attend a high adventure experience like those offered at Camp Mountaineer, Philmont or the Summit? Participating in our Spring Sale can help make it happen!

Leaders: Commission for this sale will be 37% of the total sales! What could your unit and scouts do with those funds?
