First Day of the 2012 Fall Sale

First Day of the 2012 Fall Sale

My customer letters have gone out in the mail and I am ready to hit the popcorn sales ground running!  I have another HUGE goal this year so root for me!  With help from mom and dad I am confident I can reach that goal.  I’ll try to keep you posted on my progress as the sales goes on.  Thanks for your support!



It’s Popcorn Time Again!

Ethan and the New Popcorn

The 2012 Fall Popcorn Sale runs from 9/28/12 to 11/2/12

Just a quick post to let you know how to buy popcorn this year in case you visit this site before I’ve had a chance to fully update it.

Gamehaven Council has changed popcorn vendors.  The new popcorn company is called Pecatonica River Popcorn.

You can order from ME online at www.prpopcornstore.com and use my Seller ID #27BD109.  This is entered on the checkout screen.

When you order online through Pecatonica River you can do a Military Donation or get a CUSTOMIZED popcorn tin!  You pick and choose the flavors you want.

Here are some of the fun new flavors for you to try:

  • Caramel Corn
  • Cashew Thunder
  • Cheddar Cheese Corn
  • Cheesy Ranch
  • Cherry Cheesecake
  • Jalapeno Cheese
  • Mud Puddles ~ Caramel corn and crushed peanuts coated in rich creamy fudge
  • Peanut Butter Cup
  • Sea Salt Splash
  • White Cheddar with Black Peppercorn
  • White Gold ~ Popcorn, almonds, and luscious white fudge
  • White Ruby ~ Popcorn, cranberries, and luscious white fudge

Thanks for your continued support of me and Scouting!  I hope to be able to see you soon.


Getting the Annual Customer Letters Out

Mailing Customer Letters


Each year I send out a pre-sale customer letter to all of my past customers.  This is becoming quite a process because I now have almost 700 customers from the last three years of popcorn sales.  It is time consuming and expensive (especially for an 8-year old!), but each year I find that it is worth it because people want to buy popcorn from me again and wait for me to arrive to make their purchase instead of buying from another Scout.  I also think it is very important to let people know that I appreciate them supporting Scouting and want to let them know how the money I raised goes to help Scouting.  I hope you will buy popcorn from me again this year!

My Den and I worked very hard this summer at our overnight camp.  We earned three of our Webleo requirements and are well on our way to a successful Scouting year.

This picture was in the Rochester Post Bulletin to promote Scouting in my local area.  My dad earned his Eagle Scout rank at the age of 15.  Maybe I will too!

First Day of School

First Day of School


Here’s a photo of me and my little brother on the first day of school this year.  I will be in 4th grade at a public Montessori school and my little brother in 1st.  I’ve had the same teacher for the last three years and get a new one this year.  I’m excited for the changes (but clearly not as much as my little brother).

Fun Summer Activities

Wow…what a busy summer!  Here are some photos of some of the fun activities I did.  I also went camping with Cub Scouts, but don’t have any photos to show for that.  Enjoy!
