What to bring:

  • Wear your vest or sash.
  • If you have cookie money to turn in, please bring it to the meeting. Cookie money will NOT be collected at the start of the meeting. If you have cookie money, please arrive between 7:15pm and 7:30pm to turn in money. When you are there please peak in and one of us will come out. I will have everyone's balance available at the meeting. Remember you can also meet with me outside of our meeting nights to turn in money.

Cookie Updates

Troop Goal: 5000 boxes. As of the close of today, February 28th, we have sold 3,568 boxes!!

Cookie Booths: I will send out an email reminder to those scheduled for booths this week. Pray for the weather to continue to stay nice and sunny!!

Bling Your Booth: Our troop placed 2nd in the Bling Your Booth contest last week. Woot Woot!. Each girl in our troop will receive a Bling Your Booth fun patch and the troop will receive $100 to use at either the Girl Scout shop or at camp. In the coming weeks we will have two sister troops that we will be showing our support for as they will be participating in Bling Your Booth as well. I will keep you posted when it's time to vote again. Pending the wind, my goal is to set up our fancy bling your booth a few more times in the next two weeks so that more of the girls have a chance to sell from it.
