Cookie season is coming! And that means cookie rallies! The annual cookie rally is a great way for Daisies and Brownies to get into the cookie spirit and learn from their older Girl Scout sisters. The girls will play cookie games, practice running a booth, and practice going door-to-door. Hopefully, we will even have everyone’s favorite activity – cookie tasting.

We encourage all Daisies and Brownies to attend one of the two offered Cookie Rallies. Please register in advance. Last year the rallies filled, so please register early to ensure your spot.

Rally 1 will be Jan 13th.

Rally 2 will be Jan 19th

Rallies are not a drop-off event – all girls must be supervised by either a parent or troop leadership. If you are a parent who is not intending to stay for the event, make sure your troop leadership has sufficient adults and a signed activity permission form. Supervising adults should register as an accompanying adult.

As excited as we may be to get started – please remember the official sale begins on Jan 17th. Girls should NOT engage in any in-person sales until that date.

Note: Cookie Rallies are designed to get our youngest cookie sellers excited. Troop Volunteers looking to learn the practical ins and outs of running a cookie sale should attend Cookie Training with Rachel.
