Cookie Program Reminders
Recognitions Status. Recognitions shipping is still delayed, as the warehouse in Michigan that packs and ships girl and troop recognitions is closed as a non-essential business, and Massachusetts is still under a stay-at-home order from Governor Baker. We will notify troops as soon as these restrictions have been lifted and recognitions have been shipped. 

500 Club Virtual Celebration. The 500 Club Celebration event originally scheduled for May 17, 2020, at Canobie Lake Park has been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. However, we will be celebrating 500 Club members’ achievements during a virtual 500 Club Celebration event on Sunday, May 17, from 1-1:30 PM! Registration emails have been sent to this year’s 500 Club members, including links to join the event. 

Cookie Selling Update. In light of COVID-19 restrictions, we have extended the deadline for cookie selling through June 30, 2020. We suggest that troops host virtual cookie booths at this time, or seek community donors to purchase cookies that troops can donate to first responders once it is safe to do so. If you have concerns about your inventory, please contact us. Also, the expiration date for cookie credits that were to expire in 2020 has been extended to June 25, 2021.
