Scout Popcorn sales began last week. Many Scouts throughout Lincoln and the surrounding communities will begin selling locally produced Colby Ridge popcorn products. You will be able to identify Scouts selling popcorn by their Scout uniforms (Cub Scouts in blue and Scouts BSA in tan). Scouts will be knocking on doors, setting up booths at storefronts, and opening their online sales pages.

The membership fees will take effect August 1, 2021, for the 2021-2022 program year. If your unit’s recharter is still in defective status after the deadline of 7/31/21, your unit will be charged the new fees. If your recharter and all paperwork is successfully completed before the deadline, the old fees will still be in effect.

Over the last few months, we have seen the Scouting community come together, even while physically apart, to bring solutions, relief and comfort to those in need. From making masks to supporting food banks, Scouting has been a vital partner for communities across the country.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has worked to keep the membership fee as low as possible. Unfortunately, operating costs have continued to rise and COVID-19 has compounded the need to increase the fee to maintain the program.

The national organization of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to achieve two key objectives: equitably compensate victims who were harmed during their time in Scouting and continue to carry out Scouting’s mission for years to come.

Cornhusker Council has not filed for bankruptcy. Meetings and activities, district and council events, other Scouting adventures and countless service projects are taking place as usual. There should be no change to the local Scouting experience.
