Thank You Troop Cookie Managers!
When you think of Girl Scout cookies, what comes to your mind?
Thin Mints, Samoas, Do-si-dos, so many different kinds.
Troop Cookie Managers come in assorted flavors too!
Not many people realize just all these people do.
They order in December, Tagalongs and Do-si-dos
Just how many will be needed, they always seem to know.
Training, membership, becoming volunteers
All to give a helping hand as cookie season nears.
They’re moms and dads, grandparents, often leaders too
All going that extra mile is often what they do.
They have so many people who come into their home
They’re always taking orders via email or by phone
They put in so many hours, they’re constantly on call
Even working cookie booths at Fry’s or in the mall.
These very special people are ones who really care
They are always very willing to do more than their fair share.
There is no way of paying someone who shares their heart
They donate many hours, pitching in right from the start.
We truly do appreciate the time that they put in
And look forward to another year, when we set up again.
