2014 Annual Popcorn Fundraiser Information

Posted by Christopher Novack on September 10, 2014 at 2:30 PM Comments comments (0)

 

We need your help to make our fundraising goal. Each year our Pack sells popcorn to raise funds for activities. This is the way we keep our annual fees lower than most surrounding packs.

 

You can help us achieve this by selling in one of three ways. You can choose to sell individually door to door, with a group at show and sells or online by setting up an account at Trails End.

 

Our packs goal is to sell 16,500 for the year. We can achieve that if each scout family sells an average of $250 in combined sales each. Any scout that sells at least 1,000 in combined sales will have there dues waived for the following year. There are many other exciting gifts and incentives that are outlined in the popcorn packets. The main highlights are at the 2,500 level scouts are eligible for a scholarship from Trails-End and the top sellers award parties at Dave and Busters. Once a Scout is eligible for and enrolled in the scholar ship program all sales from that year and any future years sales including those earned as a Boy Scout are eligible for a 6% of sales to be contributed to a special scholarship account. More info can be found here.

 

You can sign up for Show and Sells locations and directions click here.

 

You can sign up for an online account here. Select create an account in the upper right corner. Select Scout and fill in the appropriate information. When prompted you will need to select Atlanta Area Council, Foothills District, Pack 1776. This step is important or we will not be able to give you credit for these sales.


Thank you Pack 1776 for making our sale successful!

East Cobber Parade

Posted by Chryse Johnson on September 6, 2013 at 8:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Pack 1776 will be marching the 18th Annual EAST COBBER Parade & Festival!  The parade will be held Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 10am, RAIN or SHINE. Pack 1776 has been assigned to Row A. Check in time for our group is 8:45 am. Arrive on time and proceed to the designated row; no need to check in. Parents should inform their den leaders by our Den meetings this Sunday if their scout plans to march so we can confirm we have enough slots reserved.


The EAST COBBER Parade will be staged at Mount Bethel Elementary School parking lot (1210 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta, 30068). Beginning at 10 am, parade participants will march south on Johnson Ferry Road, and then after about one mile, turn onto Olde Towne Parkway which leads to the Fountains of Olde Towne Shopping Center, 736 Johnson Ferry Road.


To help up produce a successful parade and for the safety and enjoyment of all parade participants, it is vital that you abide by the following guidelines:


 

  • Arrive at your group's scheduled time. We have staggered the check-in times to efficiently organize the large number of participants (2,000+) in a limited amount of space. At the very least, get your vehicles and floats in place by your assigned time so participants can walk safely in the staging area. 


  • Cars NOT part of the parade will not be allowed to drive into the school’s parking lot. The Cobb County police block off the Princeton Lakes Road leading to the school that morning. It is suggested that you park in a nearby shopping center parking lot and walk to the school’s parking lot/parade staging area.


  • Anyone marching in the EAST COBBER Parade must be in the staging area by 9:30am. Johnson Ferry Road from Upper Roswell Road to Lower Roswell Road will be closed to all northbound and southbound traffic from approximately 9:30am until 11:15am, when the parade is over.


  • Cobb County Police have restricted the time Johnson Ferry Road can be closed for the EAST COBBER Parade. So, the less cars in the Parade the less time we will be on Johnson Ferry Road. It is very important you do not add more cars or people to your parade entry at the last minute. AND it is very important to keep walking, moving forward on the parade route. In the interest of time and respect to the police’s request please do not stop and put on a demonstration or a show while on Johnson Ferry Road.
