Community Product Sales Managers should have been receiving shipments of cookie sale recognition items this week.  Unfortunately it appears that the duffle bags which girls earned at the 650 - 749 package level were omitted from this shipment.  Our vendor is making a separate shipment of the duffle bags and we have heard they should be going out today.  So if your shipment is missing a duffle bag or bags, they should arrive very soon.  If you have any questions, please contact your Product Sales and Finance Specialist.

Cost includes meals, snacks, overnight accomodations on campus, activity supplies and t-shirt.  

Grades:  6-12

Cost:  $75 girl, $50 adult
