Whole Troop News

  • Next Meeting: February 3
  • Cookie Order Forms are due February 7th! If you are done taking orders - bring them to Lori at THIS WEEK'S MEETING!! If you want until the 7th, you MUST bring them to Lori's house by bedtime ON the 7th. No orders can be taken after the 7th, and they have to be entered on the 8th. There is no wiggle room on this - it comes from the Utah Council!
  • Parents - please make sure to sign your scout in and out every night - this helps us know who has done what activities, and to know who is there should something happen. Just a quick initial is all we need! Thank you!

Daisy Doings

Last week we learned about Martin Luther King Jr. " I have a dream Speech." We made "little hand" imprints and discussed how we could make the world a better place. Next week we continue our animal learning but learning about dolphins and whales.

See you then!!

Brownie Bustles

The Brownies were Engineers this week! We talked about what Engineers do and how they create things to build. We made our own creations with gumdrops, marshmallows, and tooth picks (sorry if there was a sugar overload. They loved tasting their creations too)! They came up with some great towers, homes, and playground equipment. They were having so much fun, they didn't want to stop!

Junior Journeys

The Juniors talked about Customer Service and how we can use good customer service when selling cookies. Practice with your scout about responses they can make when people decline buying cookies - sometimes there is something else we can offer (Would you like to donate a few boxes of cookies to Ronald McDonald House? How about a box as a gift for a neighbor?) and sometimes we just say "Thank you, have a nice day!"

This week we are going to take a "field trip" to the nearby Smith's grocery to look at marketing. My husband works for Smith's/Kroger and is going to get me some info directly from the marketing folks to share with the girls. The idea is to see how grocers market to see what ideas we can use to "Bling Our Booth" to increase cookie sales in March.

In order to actually GO on our "field trip" the girls need to have permission slips. I sent them home from the meeting. If it didn't make it to you, or you can't find it, just let me know and I can email it to you (my email is

The girls are learning some great business skills!

Cookie Sales!

Cookie sales can seem like a lot of work, but we can also make it fun! We want the girls to learn about Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, and Business Ethics. These skills will help them throughout their lives. Together, we can make this learning a positive experience for everyone!

Key Dates:

January 16 to February 7 - Girls take orders

February 27 - Pick up cookies (this is a tentative date, I will have more info later, but plan on trying to pick up cookies that afternoon)

March 11 - March 27 - Booth sales (again, more info as I get it)


Have the girls sell the cookies! (See the video below!)

Check out the Girl Scout webpage for parents and girls for tons of tips for making your cookie season successful:

Remember to have fun and call Lori if you have any questions!
