To add to the success of your troop’s Cookie Sale, all troops should enter their booth sale information in Snap as they are scheduled.  Information provided thru Snap will be uploaded to the Cookie Booth Locator so that those searching online for a nearby cookie sale will be able to find your troop’s booth sale.  Boost your troop’s business by providing accurate, complete information for all of your Cookie Booths in a timely manner. 

If you are in an area with a Cookie Booth Coordinator, please contact them for their approval of the Cookie Booth before setting up the booth or uploading the information to Snap.  For additional information on Cookie Booth Sales, please see page 25 of the pink Answer Book.  Read more to learn how to enter your troop's cookie booth sale dates in Snap.

Here's a time filler game that can be creative and fun!

  Follow the Rules:

All players sit in a circle. One person selected to be It
stands away from the group. The players remaining in the circle choose a rule
to use while answering questions. The rule can be hard or simple depending on
those playing. For example: Answer questions as if you were an alien, or,
players must scratch their heads or yawn before answering. When the person who
is It comes back, she must find out the rule by asking players questions about
themselves. The person trying to guess the rule is allowed to take as long as
she needs. If it takes too long, players can help by exaggerating the response
the rule calls for. (The Incredible Indoor Games Book, pg. 52).


Tune in next week for a craft idea that will excite your crowds!

New Leader Orientation Training (NLOT)

By Bonnie Reeves

Well we have reached another milestone. We have over 100 new volunteers for Region 3!  Let’s do a quick review of who needs to complete the application process!

So we know all Adult Girl Scout volunteers are to be registered and receive an appointment letter prior to working with the girls.

We know any Adult Girl Scout volunteers who handle the girl finances or product sales must be registered and receive an appointment letter.

Are there any exceptions?  Yes

1)         A presenter who will never be alone with the girls.  No additional paperwork required.

2)         An Episodic volunteer – someone who will volunteer only once

a.         Authorizes the background check

b.         Completes the application

c.         Encouraged to register as Girl Scout

d.         Complete a position description

e.         Must receive an appointment letter or approval prior to meeting with the girls.

3)         A parent who may sit in the back of the room during a meeting because it’s just to far to travel.

a.         I would always encourage theses parents to register and go through the appointment process but if they are not willing-we can let it go.

With all that being said I hope that you all join us at the Region 3 Cookie Rally!  We rock!

Yes, you guessed it …I’m looking for volunteers!
