This past year, they presented $363 and miscellaneous supplies to Jennifer and Mary during CVAS Christmas Open House on December 8, 2019.

While at the shelter, Nola and Evan visited all the animals and enjoyed Christmas goodies. The two are already working on next year’s fundraiser.

Evan is the son of Nathan and Carrie Laird of Thurmont. Nola is the daughter of BJ and Maureen Schildt of Emmitsburg.

Fall brings the biggest fundraiser for Boy Scouts of America: Popcorn! This fundraiser is through Trails End, who are now giving seventy-three percent back to scouting. They have increased the amount of product you receive this year, but kept the price the same. They have also added a couple of new flavors.

This major fundraiser for the scouts gives them points towards paying for their summer camp adventures. Local businesses are supporting the efforts by allowing Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Venturing Crew members to sell popcorn outside their businesses.

If you do not see a scout and would like to purchase some popcorn, please contact and a scout will be in contact with you. Thank you for supporting scouting.
