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.
Northern Star Council will continue to collect national and council dues through their online sign-up system. Being thrifty, Pack 455 has reduced our pack dues by 20% to $60 per scout (see pack budget)
