Here is some info and I hope it is not too confusing!

Today we are going to be sorting cookies and also going to do activities for the World Thinking Day and receive our Trefoil pins.

The cookie booth sales are scheduled for March 5th from 5-7 and March 6th from 4-6. I am going to have the Brownies and Daisy’s both coming on those days, this way it will give more chance for everyone to get their booth badge. I do have extra cookies on hand if someone asks you for extra boxes when you deliver cookies or you come across someone who didn’t get to order. Call me and I could very well have what they want.

If you are interested in a summer camp for your girl, let me know and we can possibly help with the cost of it. I am going to double check on the final day of payment for camp. If possible we could raise money for camp for those who want to go.

We will continue with girl scouts during the summer (what we have of it!) I will let you know of activities and meeting date and times in the future. This will also allow us to participate in the Memorial Day parade.

Continue to practice with your child on how to sell cookies at the booth. Remember: look cute, smile, be polite, use manners, don’t get upset when someone tells you no, review the price of each box (3.50) and the kinds of cookies available. Role play with them so they feel comfortable doing this. Also, the girls will need to wear their vests/sashes at the booth sales. If you are having problems with them, let me know and maybe I can help!

I really want the girls to attend an activity that is located in our county and our council is putting on for a council fundraiser. It is a spaghetti dinner and karoke night and will be held at Gregoryville Christian Church and will be on Friday, March 12th from 6:30-9:00. They will get a patch for this activity. I HAVE TO KNOW BY FEB. 24TH IF YOUR DAUGHTER IS ATTENDING. The cost is $10. If anyone needs help in paying that, don’t be afraid to tell me and we can help out. I also need some adult volunteers to be there to help out since I am helping out during the event. Tell me, call me or email me if your daughter is going (I can always get the $ from you at a later date)

MEETING DAYS (barring no snow)
Brownies: March 1st, 15th, 29th
Daisy’s: March 8th, 22nd.

Friday, February 19, 2010

Ok, the Saturday event is cancelled for tomorrow. Not many girls were able to make it and I want to do it when most of the girls can be there to get their Trefoil pins. I have decided to do it on one of our scheduled meeting dates and combine both troops for it. So, if we have school on Monday, I want both troops to meet after school. So the Brownies and Daisy's will be meeting Monday, Feb. 22nd if there is school. Reason #2 for doing this---I will be picking up the cookies Monday during the day. If there is school, I will be bringing the cookies to the school where we will all sort them and send them home with the girls as they leave the meeting. If for some reason your daughter cannot make the meeting, notify me so that we can make arrangements for me to get the cookies to you. I think this will be the easiest way to get the cookies to you is to give them out at the meeting. So, if any of you moms are able to come and help out at this meeting Monday, please come. I will definitely need as many hands as I can get! If, heaven forbid, we don't have school on Monday, I will make alternate plans and let you know what those are next week. I will have to see what the weather is going to do and then decide when and where we can meet to give you your cookies. Thanks!

I will let you know of the booth sales days and times on Monday.

it has been awhile...

I am not sure if anyone visits this site, but I am sorry to be so long in updating the page and sending out info. I sent this email out earlier today:

Since we are now having school on Feb. 15, (pending no snow on that date) we will be having a Brownie meeting on both Feb. 15 and also on Feb.22. The Feb. 15 meeting will make up for the one missed Feb.1 and the Feb. 22 meeting is our regulary scheduled meeting. The Daisy's meet this evening and then again on March 1st. I will be letting you know about booth sales as soon as I find out. Thanks for being patient and understanding during this time of bad weather we are having. I know it gets confusing, but I am just a call or email away.

I am still getting approval for a few places in town to sell cookies for the booth sale. Bear with me, you will know as soon as I know! I am also, waiting to hear back from the school to see if they will let me and both troops set up a table up in front of the school one Monday for the girls to sell cookies as parents come and pick up their kids. On that Monday, I will have a combined meeting with both troops. This way everyone gets the opportunity to earn a booth patch. I am hoping to also have two more places and times to sell the cookies. Over the next couple of meetings, I will be going over how to sell cookies with the girls, making signs and thank you cards to hand out to the cookie buyers. We will be role playing how to polietly yet effectively selling cookies. I encourage you to also practice with your girls on how to do this so they will become comfortable with approaching people while using their good manners. Thanks for all you do and for getting me your cookie orders! I know it was a bit crazy due to the snow and all! Thanks!
