Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Don’t worry, delicious only costs $4 per box this cookie season!

Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Lakes will be raising the cost of cookies this year from $3.50 per box to $4.00 per box. The fifty cents per box price increase is the first in over seven years for the Council and is intended to offset increasing costs of running the Girl Scout Cookie Program.  “Our baker’s price for the cookies, as well as the cost of delivering the Cookie Program has continued to rise. After seven years of holding our price we felt that it was time to make a modest increase to offset these additional costs and enable our girls and Troops to remain profitable,” says Patti Denton, Chief Financial Officer for Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes. “This increase allows us to both continue to provide a healthy revenue stream back to our Council and to better support girls in running a profitable cookie business to help fund their Girl Scout adventures like camp and Troop trips,” Denton continues.


Courage Confidence Character Series

RS9836_IMG_0918-lprOn October 28, 2015 GSNWGL welcomed Janet Evans to the Meyer Theater in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This phenomenal evening was filled with stories of Janet’s rise to Olympic stardom including meeting and getting important life advice from Mark Spitz, what it means to be a champion rather than a winner, and what it felt like to carry the Olympic torch at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. After speaking Janet posed for pictures and signed autographs! It was an incredible night.

Our next speaker, Carey Lohrenz, will take the stage at the Meyer Theater on February 17, 2016. Carey grew up in Pulaski, Wisconsin and graduated from the University of Wisconsin. As the first female F-14 Tomcat Fighter Pilot in the U.S. Navy, having flown missions worldwide as a combat-mission-ready United States Navy pilot, Carey is used to working in fast moving, dynamic environments, where inconsistent execution can generate catastrophic results.

You can find more information about Carey and the Courage Confidence Character Series as well as order tickets on our website.
