April is SHARE month

Volunteer recognition nominations Sunday, March 1-Thursday, April 30

Nominate an adult who has gone above and beyond her or his role to make a difference in Girl Scouts. You must include two endorsements with your nomination. We’ll present awards at the Volunteer Conference and Celebration in August.


Cookie program wrap-up

Thanks to those who participated in the Girl Scout Cookie Program! From savvy cookie bosses to dedicated adult supporters, you help fund camps, as well as free or low-cost volunteer trainings and other council-sponsored events like OTM Sendoff and Volunteer Conference and Celebration. And you keep Girl Scouting available to local girls.


This exciting year included two new cookies, the Samoas® 40th anniversary, an expanded Mystery House contest (53 of 56 houses found!) and successfully implementing a price increase for the first time in 11 years. While our council goal of 2.62 million boxes was not met, the revenue generated will be sufficient to meet our 2015-16 budget. Check out the cookie facts in this year’s infographic.
