Trails End Popcorn: 

Thousands of dollars go back to the Scouting program in the Rio Grande Council as a result of the annual Trail's End popcorn sale. Over 73% of all dollars collected during the sale support local Scouting. The popcorn sale is a way for a Scout to support his or her way through the various activities during the year. There are three options to sell popcorn: traditional take order sales, sell online to friends and family out of town and show-and-sell. For more information, contact your ___________________.
