From the Cookie Cupboard



Thank You from the Entrepreneurial Programs Team!

On April 7, the 2013 Cookie Season came to an end. The Entrepreneurial Programs Team would like to thank all of our families and volunteers for their support and efforts this year. Each year, Troop and Association Cookie Volunteers motivate troops, run trainings, hand out materials, and pick up Cookies so that the girls can have this unique earning and learning experience. We appreciate the time you have given to helping Girl Scouts learn the 5 Leadership Skills of the Cookie Program, and we look forward to working with you again next year… especially in the fall with Mags&Munchies!
