Not only did we join together, but so did our awesome parents.  They all came to encourage and support us in meeting our goal which we did.

We really do share a sisterly bond like no other because of what we have created together in Girl Scouts.

We would like to send out a special MAHALO! to everyone who supported us this 2016 Cookie Season!  Without your kindness and generosity, we would not have been able to meet our goal!

*A summary of our cookie sale accomplishments will follow in a separate post.

 

2016 Cookie Season Begins

Today – Saturday, February 27th – was our first day of Girl Scout Booth Sales.  Our troop goal is to sell 1, 656 boxes of cookies that will provide us with proceeds to help us take action in our community, fund our troop learning activities, supplies and awards.  It will also partly fund an exploration trip of a minimum of 5 days and 4 nights – somewhere completely opposite of what us Kauai Island girls are use to.

As of this first day of booth sales, we have sold only 7% of our troop goal.  However minimal it may seem, it was a very productive day of team work.  We were stationed at Kmart in Lihue from 9am to 3pm.  Here is our photo of the day:

If you haven’t gotten your Girl Scout cookie fix yet, or maybe need more, come visit us at Lihue Longs tomorrow – Sunday, February 28th – from 3 to 6pm.  We have lots more cookies in our inventory to sell!

Troop 823 Cookie Captains

Yesterday, November 15th, we (Kaytlen, Aleah, Alexis and Kyla) spent our afternoon (1-4p) in training to be Cookie Captains.  Kyla couldn’t be present with us so she did it from her home and facetimed us at the same time.  Jayda was in New York on a family vacation.

This was the first time we ever did a Girl Scout webinar, following along with the Oahu training event.  We were lucky to be included in this because we don’t have the many opportunities that Oahu troops have simply because we are on an outer island.  Travel costs to attend such events throughout the year would be just too much for us.

What is a Cookie Captain?  It’s a person who plays an important role in educating younger Girl Scouts about the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

What is the responsibilities of a Cookie Captain?  1 – Mentor a group of first-time cookie sellers. 2 – Help at cookie events. 3 – Join young Girl Scouts at booths.  And 4 – Provide assistance to the Service Unit Cookie Manager.

We play a special part in the Girl Scout Cookie Program and hold a very special place in the hearts of girls.  We are role models for leadership.  By teaching other girls about the cookie program, we help them reach their dreams.

Thank You so much Girl Scouts of Hawaii for giving us this opportunity!

Now to plan out how we will complete 15 service hours as Cookie Captains.  2-1/2 hours have already been earned for Alexis, Aleah, Kaytlen and Kyla having done the training so that leaves 12.5 hours to go.  I smell a Cookie Rally in the near future.  Do you?
