We're three weekends into cookie season and, at least, one Girl Scout has already made it to Disney! We've learned that a Girl Scout Brownie sold 2014 boxes of cookies in these first few weeks of cookie sales. Remember, all Badgerland Girl Scouts who hit that goal earn a trip for two to DisneyWorld. We hope dozens more earn the trip.

Here's an example of how one Badgerland Girl Scout is working toward her Disney goal:  

Claire, a Girl Scout Daisy, planned a visit to talk to her local VFW about getting cookie donations to send to the troops. Her troop, based in Alma, is donating their Cookie Share donations to locally deployed troops and Claire figured the VFW would be a natural audience to talk to. According to Claire's troop leader, "She wrote her own speech and was very polite. She even told them that she got to stay up past her bedtime to talk with them. That sealed it! She received money for 3 cases of cookies and money to send the cookies to our military." Claire is now halfway to her goal to earn the Disney trip!


What is your Girl Scout's goals?  Is she having fun? How is she achieving her goals? Share your stories and photos.


Troop Cookie Coordinators please review the Cookie Sheet we sent you last week with all the details on returns and important cookie dates upcoming. 


Returns A reminder that troops doing the Direct Sale Method may return clean, unopened cases of cookies to the Girl Scout Service Center through 8pm Tuesday, February 25. Parents with extra cases should connect immediately with their Troop Cookie Coordinator to arrange any necessary returns before Tuesday evening. Troops can also swap unopened, clean cases for other flavors if we have what you need in stock!

Troop 4202 of Tomah braved the cold for a first-day Cookie Booth on February 8. And it was worth it! The troop sold two more boxes more this year than they did at the same location during the last sale. The troop also collected 10 boxes to be donated through their Cookie Share program.
