As we head into the home stretch we want to thank you all for the integral role you’ve played in making the Cookies Now! a great success. This year has been a valuable learning experience for all of us. Most troops are reporting excellent outcomes with the new program format as a result of employing the core decision making and business principles of the cookie program. We also understand that initial excitement and confidence may have resulted in some troops ordering more cookies from the Cookie Cupboards than they could handle. We all realize that even when things don’t go as planned, we can learn from the situation and be more successful in our future efforts.

Many girls are excited to finish this year’s Cookie Program Activity on a strong note. We encourage all girls to continue selling their remaining inventory as long as possible. Troops can continue door-to-door sales and Cookie Booths through March 27. Make sure your customers know that this once-a-year treat will soon be gone! We encourage troops to

continue using the Cookie Swap Wiki to trade varieties of cookies among your service unit if you have upcoming Cookie Booths. Cookie swapping is a great way to work with other troops in your area to serve your customers.
