2020 Cookie Sale 

GSRV Message about Form

Family Responsibility Form Pre-Sales Language Error

On the 2020 Family Responsibility Form, there is incorrect language stating that girls “may take pre-orders” (located in the second sentence under “Cookie Sale Procedures”). Girl Scouts River Valleys apologizes for the confusion this has caused you and families participating in the sale. We have two solutions: 1) If you have not yet handed out the forms to families, please cross out the part that states “and may take pre-orders”; or 2) If you have already handed them out, please clarify to families that this was an error and they are not able to take pre-orders. We have updated the digital version of the form as well. We thank you all for your patience and understanding, both with council and when approaching families about this matter as they may mistakenly take part in pre-orders due to this included language.

New for 2020:

  • The consumer price of cookies is again $5. Troop proceeds will increase. We will share full details about the base and tiered troop proceeds 

The 2020 Cookie Program will run from Saturday, February 15 to Sunday, March 29.
