Smart Cookie: March 11, 2019

2019 Cookie Program comes to a close

It’s the end of another amazing Girl Scout Cookie Program here in Colorado. We can’t thank you enough for all you do to guide girls to success. It’s a busy and hectic time, but please take a moment to reflect on all your girls have accomplished. Whether she’s a quiet girl summoning the courage to ask a new customer to support her, or she’s a seasoned entrepreneur pushing herself to go beyond her goals, she’s practiced real-life business skills that will lead her to accomplish much in life. She couldn’t do it without you and the supportive adults in her life, so take a moment to pat yourselves on the back as well.

Closeout of eBudde

Troops will be locked out of eBudde at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12. Before then you need to ensure you’ve allocated all cookies to the girls in your troop, entered and verified all transactions, and submitted the final reward order. Also, don’t forget to print your final troop sales report. If you have any questions about cookie closeouts, please reach out to the Service Unit Cookie Manager in your area.

If you need additional Hometown Hero cookies, first check with other troops in your area to see if they have inventory to transfer. The last day to pick up Hometown Hero Cookies from cupboards is March 13. Remember, all transactions (troop-to-troop transfers or cupboard orders) will need to be placed by Tuesday. The deadline to deliver Hometown Hero cookies is June 28.
Don’t forget to share photos your Hometown Hero deliveries with us! We love seeing your girls in action, sharing their hard work and putting smiles on their Hometown Heroes’ faces.
