The boys had a great time launching their bottle rockets and kicking off our fundraiser! For those who were unable to attend, please contact your den leaders to get your sales packet. This fundraiser is a great way to support Pack 24 and the local scouting program. In addition, there are some great prizes available for those scouts who sell! Please make sure to sign up for a Show & Sell too! Here are some helpful tips to make your scout’s fundraiser a success.
