Ope­ra­tion Pop­corn

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

The po­pu­la­ri­ty of pop­corn is un­de­niable and over the past few years, an In­ter­na­tio­nal Pop­corn Day was ins­ta­ted f o r J a n u a r y 1 9 t h ! Se­ve­ral or­ga­ni­za­tions al­so take ad­van­tage of this po­pu­la­ri­ty to fi­nance their ac­ti­vi­ties. This is the case for Scouts Ca­na­da, which al­so of­fers the op­por­tu­ni­ty to those who want to en­cou­rage the or­ga­ni­za­tion, but do not want pop­corn to do­nate it to sup­port Ca­na­dian Ar­med Forces troops. That’s in this context, in the spring of 2018, that Ba­got­ville's Per­son­nel Sup­port Pro­grams ( PSP) team won a ma­jor na­tio­nal spon­sor­ship of mi­cro­wa­vable pop­corn, with more than 25,000 bags being de­li­ve­red to the Base.

The idea may seem ap­pea­ling, but dis­tri­bu­ting 25,000 bags of pop­corn is no ea­sy task. Op Pop­corn thus came in­to ef­fect, be­gin­ning last spring when a mas­sive dis­tri­bu­tion of pop­corn was made du­ring the ope­ra­tions sur­roun­ding the hol­ding of the G7 sum­mit. Since this sum­mer pop­corn has al­so been made avai­lable as a self- serve snack on Thurs­days at the barn. Feel free to stop by and en­joy! In No­vem­ber, pa­ckages were pre­pa­red using the De­ploy- ment Sup­port Cen­ter ( DSC) to send a lit­tle hap­pi­ness to mem­bers on over­seas mis­sions at Ch­rist­mas. Meanw­hile on base, a mas­sive dis­tri­bu­tion is un­der way to all the mi­li­ta­ry and ci­vi­lian per­son­nel of the Base, which be­gan ear­ly De­cem­ber. This pop­corn spon­sor­ship will al­so pro­vide an ad­di­tio­nal contri­bu­tion to the Pa­nier du Bon­heur which col­lects non­pe­ri­shable food that will be re­dis­tri­bu­ted to people in need, via the St. Vincent de Paul So­cie­ty of La Baie. The PSP team is ho­ping to in­crease your "Hap­pi­ness Fac­tor" this ho­li­day sea­son with lit­tle touches like Op Pop­corn. In other news, the Ca­na­dian Forces Mo­rale and Wel­fare Ser­vices has fo­cu­sed on the de­ve­lop­ment of nu­me­rous part­ner­ships with bu­si­nesses and or­ga­ni­za­tions across the coun­try and lo­cal­ly, more and more as­so­cia­tions and bu­si­nesses are of­fe­ring ex­clu­sive ser­vices or pre­fe­ren­tial rates to com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers. Some examples of these part­ner­ships can be found in the pages of this jour­nal, in the sec­tion de­vo­ted to the 20182019 win­ter outdoor pro­grams. We in­vite you to take a look and en­joy the sa­vings.
