Let’s get together to celebrate popcorn!  It’s that time of year to begin making plans for Popcorn 2022.

Youth training will be lots of fun.  Gone are the days of classroom seminars for kids!  We have moved on to a fun and games individualized approach to popcorn training.

Much like what we did at Expo 2021, we will have a question/answer at each game.  Listen and Learn then play the game!   Games are appropriate for and will differ by age brackets.  Some of the games in the plan for the event are:

  • Minute To Win It style games
  • Backyard Bass Fishing game
  • Corn Hole
  • Obstacle Courses
  • Water Rescue
  • Raingutter Regatta
  • The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
  • Pool Noodle Hockey

There is no cost to attend this fun time.  Youth attendance at this event is part of your unit’s Commission Climb. 

Each person on property must complete a Health Form parts A/B  Health Form AB fillable updated 4-5-22

Registration will be open until Thursday, August 18, 2022.
