Last Call for Individual Cookie Orders

girlScoutCookieZoneIf you have already placed an order, but have not picked it up, I will be available Tuesday, March 3, 10am – 2pm and 4:30 – 8pm.

If you would like to place a new order email your order no later than 8pm on Sunday, March 8 with the subject line: “Your Daughter’s Name Cookie Order” to troop3480cookies [at] yahoo [dot] com. (This email works now. Yahoo thought I was a spammer, but they have unblocked it.)

PLEASE use this format for your order:

Savannah Smiles 11 boxes
Trefoils                 25 boxes
Do-Si-Dos           10 boxes
Samoas               15 boxes
Ra-Ra-Raisin       10 box
Tagalongs            10 boxes
Thin Mints            10 boxes

We have very few Toffee Tastics (gluten free) left. Remember, Toffee Tastics cost $5.

I will be out of town Friday, March 6, in the evening until Sunday, March 8. Because we have 4 booths this weekend, I cannot fill new orders until after we pick up more cookies from a Cookie Cupboard. It is very important you email your order by the above deadline, BEFORE we go to restock.

We cannot return or exchange any cookies.

Thank you,

Girl Scout Song of the Month: Make New Friends

Girl Scouts love to sing songs — at a meeting, on a hike, or around a campfire. Watch Make New Friends, learn the lyrics and hand movements, and teach it to your troop. You can also use it in your opening or closing ceremony.
