Units should sign up and designate a volunteer candy chairman on the agreement form which was mailed to all unit leaders and committee chairs (see attachment).  The unit order form is due by February 10th (see attachment). We have records of how much each unit sold in the past.  If you need help, we can provide suggestions.


Some additional bars can be picked up during the sale.  Cases may not be returned after opening, so your unit wants to make sure it is out before picking up more.


We encourage units to turn in money weekly at the council office.  Each Scout selling a box will have his name entered in a prize drawing.  Each Friday in March, a few prizes will be drawn.  The name will remain in the hopper through the sale until the Scout’s name is drawn or the sale ends.


To recognize our top sellers, we will have a Top Seller Prize and Top District Seller for our two districts.


All sealed cases and any remaining money are due by March 31.
