Money Money Money Money..... MONEY!!!

Cookie payment time is well underway--- YEAH! Please plan accordingly and if you do not want to wait in long lines.... avoid Friday! (as in, tomorrow!). Friday is notorious for everyone and their sister bringing in payments. While we are aok with you coming in tomorrow- you may have other ideas of how to spend your Friday. Remember we do have payment days through April 5 where you can go to your nearest GS Service Center to drop off payments.

Can I just say 'thanks again' for all your hard work this cookie season? You have all done so much and we at GSMISTS appreciate you!

Cookie Booth Sales

Cookie booth sales begin this weekend! Troops can find their favorite booth location and set up their own sale. Just a reminder that troops must supply their own cookies for booths. Troops may organize Cookie Booths at locations of their choice during the Cookie Booth timeframe: March 26-April 16, 2011.

Location ideas:
• Sport events
• Concerts/plays
• Video stores
• Banks
• Car washes
• Churches
• Grocery stores
• Senior villages
• Quick oil change business
• Universities or Colleges

Troops MUST submit their booth information in the Cookie Booth locator on Ebudde. This way, the council can advertise your troop’s booth for increased sales.
Troops that order cookies for booth sales with the troop’s original order are responsible for payment. No returns or exchanges will be made.

Community Cookie Booth Weekend happening NOW!

This weekend is Community Cookie Booth Weekend and we here at the council are SOOOO excited! We have locations in 30 counties where troops will be selling-selling-selling those cookies. Every person at our council is working to service the troops. We are ready and we are on hand for the troops. Please encourage your friends, neighbors, family members and anyone else you know to stop by their local community within GSMISTS to purchase their girl scout cookies. Our Cookie Locator is on our website: where you can type in your zip code and it will pull up all the booths in your area. We have booths at: Sams Clubs, Walmarts, local coffee shops, grocery stores and more.

The weather forecast is beautiful- 50s and sunshine! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

We look forward to a fun weekend!
