2016 Popcorn Sale

It’s that time of year again….TO SELL POPCORN!!!

If you have questions, contact your District Executive or Popcorn Kernel

Campmaster’s Popcorn is made exclusively for sale by the Boy Scouts of America units. It’s our largest annual fundraiser that runs mid-September through November.

This annual council-wide fundraiser assists local units in raising money for summer resident or day camps, adventures, supplies, registration fees, and advancement badges. Monies raised at the council level contribute to valuable programs such as Scout Reach, a program that provides support to individuals, training volunteers to be better Scouts, and sustaining camp facilities.

Purchasing popcorn outside of a retail store (show-and-sell) or ordering popcorn (take-order), is the easiest way to help units raise money. Over 70% of all sales dollars remain here to support our Scouts at the council and the unit level.

So, do your part, get out there and SELL!! SELL!! SELL!!

Re-Districting News

To view/download/print a copy of the proposed Re-districting map click here.

Council President Howard Dewald charged Executive Vice President Steve Cogar with the mission of leading a committee to consider re-organizing our council. The Allohak Council was formed 25 years ago from the consolidation of the Central West Virginia and the Kootaga Area Councils which collectively had six districts and six district executives. That structure has existed even though the Total Available Youth (TAY) population has decreased 25% and staff has reduced from six to three district executives. The committee considered population densities and transportation corridors and a plan was proposed to the Allohak Council Executive Board which reduces the number of districts from six to four and will result in the creation of an additional district executive staff position. The re-organization plan was approved to be shared with the general Scouting community for review and comment. The Executive Board will vote on final adoption no earlier than the July 21 Executive Board Meeting.

Interested parties are encouraged to share their constructive thoughts by e-mailing and noting “re-districting” in the subject line or in writing to “Re-districting Committee, 1340 Juliana St., Parkersburg, WV 26101.” All comments in keeping with the Scout Oath and Law will be considered.

2017 National Scout Jamboree

The first Boy Scouts of America national jamboree was scheduled to be held in Washington, D.C., in 1935 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Scouting in America. Unfortunately, the jamboree was canceled because of a polio outbreak in Washington. When the first jamboree was finally held in 1937, Dan Beard lit the opening campfire using flint and steel. Scouts from all 48 states brought the wood that was used in the campfire. There were some 27,232 Scouts camped on the National Mall under the Washington Monument. Since that time, 17 national jamborees have been held, the last in 2013. The next one will be July 19-28, 2017 at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve, and you are invited to attend!
