The cookie sale program begins soon. A cookie rally is a great way to get girls excited about the sale! Many service units hold their own cookies rallies or combine with neighboring service units to plan an event together. There are also council sponsored cookie rallies happening all around Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways jurisdiction.
A cookie rally usually consists of stations where girls learn skills in goal setting, booth sales, marketing, technology, and financial literacy. Most of all a cookie rally is FUN!!
One of the council sponsored cookie rally is Cookie Extravaganza! The event is taking place Saturday, February 8, 2014, 1 p.m. to 3
p.m., Community Room, Finger Lakes Mall, 1579 Clark Street Road, Auburn, NY, 13022, (Cayuga County). Open to Girl Scouts in grades K–12, adults, and non-registered girls.
