You may be wondering what cookies have to do with manatees. 

For one thing, we sell cookies in the winter in our council, and in winter manatees swim in from cold water in the Gulf of Mexico looking for warm water springs. The other way that cookies have to do with manatees, is that my troop and I saved cookie proceeds from our sale last year and used those profits to take our own trip to warm waters to swim with the manatees. It was an awesomely awesome experience!

We snorkeled and saw 15 to 20 manatees. Some of them were swimming and "walking" along the bottom, but most of them were sleeping and if you stayed still long enough you could watch them rise to the top to breath and sink back down. 

We also went to Homosassa State Park wildlife refuge which you should check out if you are in the Crystal River area. We heard an interesting presentation on the manatees and we also met Lu, a hippo! He's not a native animal of Florida, but the Governor declared him a citizen, so he lives in the state park. He turns 57 this week! 

Everyone in our council should make the trip to see the manatees one winter.

Okay, baby stoats like this one can't vote, but YOU can!

It's time to choose recognitions for the 2012 Cookie Event and they will be chosen by Girl Scouts -- as in you!

All you need to do is click on Little Miss Stoat here and you will go to the voting web site where you can help choose items for each level of Cookie sales.  The mascot this year is Penguins (but penguin doesn't rhyme with vote, so a baby stoat is the best we could do...).

Anyway, vote by July 13 to help choose!

Have you seen Girl Scouts with a pin on the front of their vest or sash that says Cookie Activity with a year on it?  These pins aren't just for participating in Cookie sales -- these are for girls who get the most out of the Cookie Program by learning about these five steps:
  • Goal Setting

Here's more information about the Cookie Pin requirements.  Talk with your leader or advisor if you want to earn this pin!
