Lunch will be served from 11:00am to Noon on Saturday, where unit leaders can socialize and pick up best practices from each other and celebrate success of their units program. Starting at Noon and runing roughly till 2:00pm we will be providing sessions on Fall Recruitment and Popcorn Sales best practices and training. This entire event is free of charge for all participants and we will be providing program for leaders children to participate in while the trainings and Expo are running.
