Joanne Gibson, our new Service Unit Cookie Mentor for NR, will hopefully have troop cookie materials for troops to pick up at the November meeting as well as samples of cookies including the new S’mores cookie!! This season marks the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts selling cookies to fund their activities and adventures.
The cookie season starts on December 9th and Jo will be putting together information for booth sales at Wal-Mart and Stop and Shop and she sent an email already to your designated Cookie Troop Managers about this.
SNAP will be open on November 8th for lottery entries to win a COBS (Council Organized Booth Sale) at MBTA stations. Your Cookie Manager MUST pay attention to the instructions on the GSEM site and meet the December 2nd deadline in order to be considered for an MBTA COBS, including requiring two adult troop members who need to submit paperwork for COBS. Troops can enter up to 100 entries to try and win a COB. Please remind your Cookie Manager to go on the GSEM cookie site and click on the For Cookie Sellers page and learn about how to get started so your troop is ready to go when the season starts!
