COOKIE SALE UPDATE
Cookie Sale Progress Week 3
Around the council we are hearing reports of girls having loads of fun while learning the 5 skills every leader needs to change her world. 
 
We are excited to report that we are closing the gap on last year's performance and together we're getting closer to meeting our council-wide goal. We have closed the gap from 15% to 10% behind last years goal in the pat week. (a 5% increase!) With two weeks remaining there are many great ways to boost your troops performance to ensure you reach your goals. Check out these great resources:
