Important Information

We would like to thank all of the girls and their parents for a GREAT Cookie Caravan weekend. We sold 243 boxes of cookies. We even ran out off half of the flavors before Sunday. Great job girls!!

Reminder: Dues are $1 per meeting. We are asking that the girls bring their dues in the dues holder to every meeting.

Please remind the girls to remember to also wear their Brownie sash to all Brownie activities, including meetings.

We are doing a new and exciting gift idea this year. The girls will be collecting Brownie Bucks for gifts and prizes through their participation.

Cookie sale information has been given to everyone. Please call if you have any questions.

We have included all of this information on our troop website. You can view this site at:
