Fundraising & Dues
While Pack 455 rocks, rocking isn't free. Each fall, two fundraising opportunities are offered that run concurrently: popcorn and wreaths. The popcorn sale is run through the Trails End App and Website (remember that we are Northern Star Council-->District O-->Pack 9455) while the wreath sale runs on paper.
In the spring, the pack sells handmade strudels made by a local company.
Your scout receives 30% of the value of their sales into their "Scout Account". The scout account is a spreadsheet maintained by the pack treasurer. This money can be used to pay dues, cover camping costs, or participate in Northern Star Council events.
Scout Year 2020-2021 will look a little different. Northern Star Council will be directly collecting national and council dues through their online sign-up system. Being thrifty, Pack 455 has reduced our pack dues by 20% to $80 per scout (see pack budget)
