The Central Minnesota Council plans to organize up to three fundraisers for its participants of the 2005 Jamboree.
The first fundraiser will involve selling popcorn, and will begin in April/May 2004.
A "Mr. Z's" Frozen Foods fundraiser will be held during the winter of 2004/2005.
A second popcorn fundraiser may be held in the spring of 2005.
Funds raised will go into each participants "individual" account.
More information will be presented at the troop meetings,
and on this site as information becomes available.
Of course, a Scout is thrifty.
In addition to the council fundraisers he is also encouraged to use his home troop's fundraising efforts.

The popcorn is scheduled to come in on the 3rd or 4th of
June. Distribution is scheduled on the 8th of June. Would any
leaders be willing to have Scouts come to their house to pick up the
popcorn? Could any of you pick it up here at the office? I
will travel, just need to know who can help.
I have listed the proposed town drop sites; they can change, just need
to know locations so I can send out a letter and contact the youth by
phone to make sure we get them to the drop location on time.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Email me if you can help by
Tuesday morning so we can get information out to the Scouts and leaders.
Thank you and have a great weekend.
