Good Job  Popping Hot District Kernels!
·We have 34% of our shifts full for Kroger’s shift for Show and Sell, and starting tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. your units can sign up for 5 more shifts.  We have a strong team of volunteers leading this charge and I am proud to work with you!  We have had our eye on the Kroger ball and it is important that your people sign up with you for the retreat so we know how many Walmart cards to have for our retreats. 
·Remember they have to stay and be trained for the retreat and at the end they receive a 20.00 Walmart card to be used for their popcorn kick off.  This is the same thing the youth can select when they sell 600 this year.
·Thank you for all of your hard work on the front end, we need all District Kernels at retreats and if you are not available please let me know, so I can find a replacement person for your people.  Our last retreat date was set for Weatherford and the location is close to being secured (Aug. 4th from 9:00-10:00 a.m.).
