The Northern Marianas Island Girl Scouts successfully sold 3,000 boxes of cookies, with only a few cases left, at their cookie sale throughout the month of February.
NMI Girl Scouts president and chair Tania David thanked Joeten supermarkets and the Joeten Superstore for giving the troops space to learn and grow from the Girl Scout cookie sales program. David added that because of their generous community partners, the last few cases are now being bought.
“Our Girl Scouts did phenomenal for the first ever Girl Scout Cookie Season in the CNMI,” said David. “We are super proud of them, their parents, families, and friends for being the biggest supporters.”
The Girl Scout Cookie Season from February to March is the largest event the Girl Scouts organization has each year. It is intended to provide the younger girls in the Girl Scouts the ability to learn about business and leadership experience through the world’s largest girl-led organization, and according to David, the troops have exceeded her expectations.
The Girl Scouts joined the Women’s Affairs Office and Commonwealth Women’s Association for the proclamation of Women’s Month and to have a proclamation of their own, during which they declared Girl Scout Week and Girl Scout Month. David affirmed that the troops will be participating in activities throughout Girl Scout Week that starts from March 8 to March 12. March 12 is Girl Scout Day; it will be the organization’s 108th birthday.
“Thank you to the Women’s Affairs Office and Commonwealth Women’s Association for including us [Girl Scouts] in the CNMI Women’s Month celebrations,” said David.
David encouraged community partners to share a troop activity that the Girl Scouts could do and learn from. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to share a skill, service or learning experience with the troops.
If you are interested in letting your child enroll into the Girl Scouts, there is an ongoing early registration for current girl scout members in April. Dates and details will be available soon for new girl scout members. Girl Scout dues are $45 per year, which translates to only $3.75 per month for all those events and activities. Plus, parent volunteering is a great way to show support for both your girl scout and community at only $25 per year. Follow them @nmigirlscouts on Instagram and www.facebook.com/nmigirlscouts.
