October means Boy Scout popcorn sales! Just ask scouts (from left) Ryan Densmore, Alex Dellinger, Thomas Petrie and Will Densmore of Pack 58 in Davidson. (Brenda Barger/DavidsonNews.net)
It’s October! Time for apple picking, pumpkin searching, costume planning and of course, Boy Scout popcorn. Just like Girl Scout cookies in the spring, one cannot refuse good popcorn for a good purpose. Selling all kinds of delicious popcorn this past Sunday at Harris Teeter in Davidson were Ryan and Will Densmore, Thomas Petrie and Alex Dellinger. The scouts were quick to mention that Trail’s End, provider of the popcorn, ships popcorn to U.S. troops around the world and that 70 percent of troop sales goes to local scouting. For more information on Davidson scouting, go to www.cubpack58.org. Popcorn would give you something tasty to munch while watching this Wednesday’s much anticipated debate between President Obama and Governor Romney.
