A garden party theme Mother/Daughter Tea was held at the Knights of at the end April. Approximately 40 area girls from Schroon Lake, Ticonderoga and Moriah attended this event with their mothers.
Ticonderoga Girl Scouts of Ticonderoga, Schroon Lake and Moriah finished up an extremely busy 2010-11 year and are gearing up for an even busier 2011-12.
In early January the girls began their annual cookie season with their second annual cookie kickoff at the Methodist Church. This event provided the girls the opportunity to taste test the product they were selling, opportunity to learn some selling techniques and goal setting. The next day they began knocking on doors taking orders. The sale continues through the end of March. A total of 1,011 cases were sold, which was an increase of 27 cases from the previous year. While taking orders as part of their take action they were also asking everyone to purchase an extra box which would be shipped to our troop over seas. A total of 28 cases were shipped overseas which was an increase of five cases from the previous year.
“A very special than you goes to those who helped make this project a huge success and to the American Legion Post 224 who helped with the distribution of these cookies to our troops,” said Debbie Barber, community chair. “Also to Becky Barber to organizing the second annual cookie kickoff, as well as the Methodist Church for allowing us to host this event at their facilities.”
In February approximately 20 area girls participated in a Dance Party at the Methodist Church. This event provided both registered and non-registered girls an opportunity to meet and make new friends.
“A special thank you goes out to Kim Powers for chairing this committee and to the following committee members: Emily Powers, Maykayla Holt, Mackenzie Strum, Susan Ward, Becky Barber, Victoria Sawyer, Tori Fluery, Lynn Sawyer, also to Marc Potter for being our DJ and to the Methodist Church for allowing us to host this event at their facility,” Barber said.
