Star Scout Ethan Moll is helping make sure you get your popcorn fix whether you can afford it or not. A member of Troop 1041 in New Franken and Troop 1140 in Brussels, Moll has gone door-to-door and sat in front of businesses to sell popcorn to the tune of over $26,000 since August. The money he raises will help fund future scouting trips to Boundary Waters, Florida Sea Base, and the 2023 National Scout Jamboree. Some people have not bought popcorn from him, rather instead donating to his efforts. Moll says that is when he got the idea to give back with popcorn as well.
At just 12 years old, Moll still has several years left to beat his current mark, which would be one of the top amounts sold in Bay-Lakes Area Council. At 99 merit badges already, Moll hopes to attend more Scouting activities in the future, complete all 135-plus merit badges and earn his Eagle Scout rank.
