Happy New Year, Girl Scouts!  I’m so excited for 2020, and I hope you are too.

At Council, we are gearing up for COOKIES!  We hope you’re ready too.  If you haven’t signed up your girl or your troop yet, contact

In addition to the Cookie Program that will run between January and March, Council will be sponsoring several fun events in different parts of the state.  We update our calendar all the time, so be sure to bookmark our web calendar and keep checking back for fun activities.  You can find the web calendar HERE.  If you have activities you want us to put on the calendar, send the details to Customer Care.

We hope you’re also taking advantage of our monthly Patch Program.  You can find activities to earn badges in leadership, character, STEM, the outdoors and more.  If you have any questions about programs, shoot us an email HERE.  This month’s theme is “Take Action.”  As we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day this month, there will be a lot of opportunity for girls to get out and take part in their community.

At council, we are here to help you—our valued volunteers—provide a great Girl Scout program across our council.  We are working internally to streamline our processes to help make things easier for you.  If we can help you in any way, please contact us at  We check this email daily and will make sure someone gets back to you within the next business day.

There’s one fun patch you can earn this year when you file for your Permanent Fund Dividend:  the Pick.Click.Give. Patch!  You can earn a patch by making a donation to any organization through Pick.Click.Give.  You can find more information the patches HERE.

Have a great January and a Happy New Year!
