dear cookie gram readers
Welcome to Cookies 2011 and the year of the Super Six! Whether your girl
is a brand new Girl Scout or a veteran, cookies are always an exciting part
of the Girl Scout journey. I have just completed my first year as Sahuaro
Girl Scout Council CEO and I have had the opportunity to speak to many
women about the Girl Scout movement and cookies regularly come up in
the conversation. I am proud to share with you that many of our corporate,
business and community leaders all attribute being a Girl Scout as a key
to their success. Selling Girl Scout cookies has given literally thousands of
women the skills and confidence to succeed.
The cookie program should be a wonderful experience for you and your girl.
Please encourage her to lead the way as she determines how she is going
to run her business. You are a vital part of her cookie team and I appreciate
your willingness to support her efforts. I know that you will be very proud of
your daughter’s accomplishments and you will see her grow and blossom
as a leader and manager of her cookie program.
Through participation in the Cookie program girls will be learning 5 key Skills
to help them become leaders and managers of their own cookie program.
These are the same 5 skills that business women across our community
use daily to manage their organizations. Girls will set goals, make decisions,
manage money, learn people skills and develop business ethics. These 5
Skills are going to help our Girl Scouts throughout their lives.

Why are these 5 skills
• When she learns
these skills, she is
setting herself up for a
successful future, no
matter what she wants
• Not only are these skills
important to her, but
they are important to
her customers as well.
They might know that when
they buy cookies they are helping her

Troop to Troop
is our councilwide Gift of
partnership with Little Brownie Baker and Operation
Gratitude, we have created this virtual process in which
girls collect the monies for the box of cookies; there
will then be an order placed in which the cookies will
go directly to troops overseas. Girls can encourage
customers to write cards to soldiers which will be
delivered with the boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. Our
goal is to send 11,000 boxes of girl scout cookies to
troops overseas in 2011.
Sahuaro Girl Scout Council will be participating in an exciting pilot cookie program
in 2011. This year, girls will only offer customers the Super Six, a premium selection
of the best-selling Girl Scout Cookies ever! These varieties include:
• Thin Mints
• Trefoils • Samoas®
• Lemon Chalet Cremes™
