COOKIES

FINAL DEADLINE TO TURN IN COOKIE MONEY: APRIL 10
Alhamdulillah, we have come to the end of Girl Scout Cookie Season. Thanks to all the parents and girls who took orders, set up cookie booths and worked hard this cookie season. However, there are still several parents who have yet to pick up cookies and turn in cookie money. The money earned by girls goes toward membership dues for the fall, events and activities in 2016 – 2017, and Sojourn to Savannah in 2017.

Cookie money must be turned in and cookies picked up by April 10, 2016. Afterwards, according to the contract signed by parents and scouts at the start of cookie season, names of girls will be turned into GSCNC for collection. This allows the troop to not be punished financially. InshaAllah these debts and arrangements for pick up will be cleared up before April 10.
