Hey Girl Scouts - how are you spending your Badgerland Bucks? The Bucks, Trip Certificates and other rewards for girls selling over 600 boxes have been distributed. All the other goodies girls earned in the Cookie Program are now with the community PSM and ready for the girls. These include the patches, magnetic photo frame, glitter sticker sheet, bracelet kit, sketch book, red panda tape caddy kit and duffle bag. Note: the flashlights are on back-order but should be delivered to PSM's this week.

TROOP LEADERS expect to hear from your PSM about picking up these items if you haven't already.
