Cub Scout Wesley Mink sold over $5,200 in popcorn this year to earn the “Top Seller” title in his district. He also outsold all the Scouts in the Gateway Area Council. He earned an Apple iPad Mini, among other incentives, for his efforts.

By Correne Martin

Every October, the Cub Scouts of Prairie du Chien endeavor to sell popcorn as their major fundraiser for the year. For the past three years, Wesley Mink, a 9 year old diagnosed with autism and epilepsy, has made it his mission to attain the title of “Top Seller” in his district. Each year, with the support of his grandmother, Debbie Mink, Wesley has spent many hours going door-to-door, trying to sell more than he did the year before.

This year, Wesley, a Webelos in Den 12, was successful in securing the title of “Top Seller” for the Seven Rivers District in the Gateway Area Council. He sold popcorn to 217 customers for a total of $5,216, which was over and above his closest competitor by $2,400. Wesley’s total in sales also surpassed both of the top sellers in each of the remaining districts that make up the Gateway Area Council; Soaring Eagle: $2,893 and Winding Trails: $4,052.
