Not only will there be fine food and beverages, but fine music supplied by the Jim Newsom Band.

The Power of the Girl Scout Cookie Program

Girls bring home more than patches and recognitions when they participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Starting with Girl Scout Daisies, they gain something much more important that they will hold on to all their lives - self-confidence. It may take the help of a Girl Scout team - encouraging leaders, involved parents and cheering troop members - but girls overcome their shyness when they greet customers and offer cookies for purchase. That confidence spills over in her ability to work with others in her troop/group, at school and at home. She becomes a confident and organized person who is ready for the next challenge. And there's more benefits waiting for girls, who participate - the ability to set goals, make decisions, manage money, and understand business ethics. These ingredients, when combined, create success! Learn more Cookie Program
