We have heard from lots of troops that they are in need of cookies, as early as Saturday. Jill Johnson Lamothe has volunteered to go to the cupboard bright at early on Saturday morning and pick up for anyone who needs cookies, including GF.
Remember - Pre Orders are not guaranteed. People change their minds, and sometimes are not able to be found when you go to collect the money - so you may not need as much as you think.
If you NEED cookies, and would rather not clog up the line on Saturday morning, please EMAIL valleylakegscookies@gmail. We will compile a list and send out a blast once Jill is home and ready for you to come over.
12/10/2018 - If you haven't already completed your online training, please do so ASAP here: https://volunteers.girlscoutsrv.org/training/cookie-training/
If you haven't already picked up your troops Cookie Manager packets from Bethany. Please e-mail and make arrangements to do so this week!
NEW to 2019 Cookie Sale:
Girls can now take orders from customers before Cookie Go Day. Got a neighbor that’s itching for some Thin Mints®? Girls can take orders with their order cards between January 19 and February 9 and deliver them on Cookie Go Day.
Credit Card Payments
Girls can now accept cookie purchase payments via credit cards right through Smart Cookies, our online cookie man-agement tool! Don’t worry, PayAnywhere is still available for troops, but it’s now easier than ever to take multiple forms of payment.
For all the planners out there (multi-color sticky tabs, anyone?), this year all Cookie Cupboards will have planned weekly orders so that troops can order cookies for the coming week and be guaranteed these cookies at pick-up. No more needing to rush to the cupboard to fill your order or feeling nervous that the variety you need will be out of stock. Your order will be happily waiting for you at the time that works the best for you.
Troops now get to enter our brand-new Cookie Booth Lottery, which allows for them to select up to 20 timeslots at their favorite and most popular booth locations, and up to three of their favorited booth slots will be selected. This means no more anxiously waiting by the computer, and lots more time to plan fun booth themes!
Council-Wide Selling Goal
If we, as an entire council, sell the same number of cookie packages as we did in 2018, the entire council will earn an extra $0.05 per package for every troop and Juliette. The prize? A council-wide, Girl Scout-only event!
Your Service Unit Cookie Managers are Bethany Bertsch & Jill Lamothe. Contact them with any questions or concerns about cookies or the Service Unit cookie cupboard
Want to joint the Valley Lake Service unit during our Cookie Blitz? All girls are welcome to participate with an adult partner. We will break into smaller groups of older and younger girls who will work together for door to door sales. I will provide everything that is needed, but it would be helpful if you can bring a wagon/sled. Please reach out with any questions.
