Lincoln Heritage Council & Trail’s End Popcorn
The Lincoln Heritage Council is excited to announce a partnership with Trail’s End as the Popcorn Vendor!
Participating in the popcorn sale is a terrific way for your Scouts to earn money while learning skills like salesmanship, money management, entrepreneurship, and public speaking. There are so many wonderful benefits to Scouts as they participate in the popcorn sale.
Trail’s End offers a NEW and approved app which Scouts can utilize to track and report real-time storefront, wagon (door-to-door), and online sales while also accepting cash and debit/credit cards, (powered by Square). Through our partnership, there are no credit card fees!
The fall sale will kick off with key leader briefings in July. More details are to come but start looking for your unit’s popcorn kernel now.

Hard work is a value that Scouting teaches and selling popcorn is a great opportunity for Scouts to learn the importance of earning their own way. More than 70% of proceeds stay right here in the Lincoln Heritage Council and help pay for Scouting adventures like summer camp and beyond. Commit your unit to the 2022 sale by completing our registration form here.
