Important Information About YOUR Cookie Dollars!

Cookie dollars are earned recognitions used to encourage our Girl Scouts to challenge them to learn about goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Earning the Cookie Activity Pin and Council Cookie Dollars are important to our girls; and our Council’s way of acknowledging our Girl Scouts’ accomplishments.

We know there are cookie dollars out there without expiration dates and some cookie dollars with December 20, 2013 expiration dates.  Many of you did not know that cookie dollars would expire with enough time to use them.

We’ve listened to your concerns and in appreciation of our girls’ efforts and in the interest of fairness to our girls and the Council we have this wonderful news for you.
