Del was active in Scouting for years with Heart of America Council, serving in just about every position from the unit level up to the Board, and soaring to Area 5 Commissioner. He is an Eagle Scout and a Deacon in the Catholic Church. When you see Del at one of our Scouting events come up and say "hello!". 

Popcorn Pays for Scouting 

Does your unit charge dues? Do you have to pay for camping, 
If you said yes to. either of1:hos~ questions, you need to talk to Jane Hansen. Jane Hansen, Northern Light's District Popcorn Chair and this fall she wants to make sure that your scout earns his way to an entire year of Scoutmg.
Several families and a few units already fund their entire year of Scouting with the Popcorn Sale, and you can too. One fundraiser in the Fall will power your way through the entire year, over 70 goes back to local scouting and the risk is zero. So unless you like to writing checks every month for various programs give Jane a call today.
