Every year, another way we kick off Cookie Sales is our PR event - Cookies and Milk with the Mayor. Since our Service Unit covers Sherwood, North Little Rock and Jacksonville - we rotate our Mayor events.
This year, we were in North Little Rock. The Mayor had a last minute family emergency, so he wasn't able to make it, and he sent his Chief of Staff in his place. In the past, we have had cookie eating contests, mock town hall meetings and recipe contests. This year, we had pretend booth sales and a 'which is the real' cookie contest. My girls once again were able to lead the group in a few songs before they were ready to start.
My girls tool some old VBS luau stuff and were able to pull off a booth in almost no time! Was pretty impressed with what they came up with...
In the end, I ended up at the table to judge which was real and which was fake cookies... pretty easy- you can just look at them and tell!!
