Cookie Season – Crumbs of Information

Cookie Season – Crumbs of Information

Thank you to everyone who attended our Cookie Kickoff on Saturday, January 30th. With over 840 attendees it was our biggest Cookie Kickoff to date and, most importantly, girls learned the 5 Skills for Girls in a fun and interactive environment. I even got dunked a few times in the dunk tank! A big thank you to the troops who worked each of the stations. You can view an album of photos from the day on our Facebook page. A big part of cookie season is goal setting. Whether your girl is a Daisy, Ambassador, or a level in between, learning how to goal set and strategize are skills she’ll take with her throughout her education, career, and home life. In last month’s blog post, I blogged my 5 Tips for a Successful Cookie Season. This month, I’ve added a few more tips to the list – everything you need to know to make cookie season as stress free and fun as possible.

5 Tips for a Successful 2016 Cookie Season

Happy New Year to all of our girls, parents and volunteers. I am excited that the 2016 Cookie Season is upon us. In the interest of a smooth and stress-free sale, I am sharing my 5 Tips for Cookie Success. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to the girls of Southern Nevada. I know the amount of hours and preparation that goes into managing cookie sales and your support does not go unnoticed. I hope to see you all at the Cookie Kick-Off on January 30th, 2016. I’ll be the one in the dunk tank! 1. Have fun! This is the time for your girls to really shine! From Daisies to Ambassadors and every girl in between, cookie season allows your girls to work with their friends towards a common goal. Do they want to take a trip to Disneyland or pack their bags for a week at Camp Foxtail this summer? Perhaps they want to see a show at the Smith Center or make a donation to a local charity? Cookie season is a fantastic opportunity to make goal setting fun. Have a group of creative girls? Don’t forget about the Bling Your Booth contest! As a troop leader or parent, if you’re having fun, then your girls will have fun, too. 2. Ensure All Girls are Registered Members One of the biggest frustrations we hear at cookie time is that SNAP+ rosters are not updating to match your troop. Step one is to ensure all girls in the troop are registered members and the sooner the better. As other councils around the country begin their cookie sales, SNAP+ can slow down...
