Roosevelt Islander Online: Help Support Local Roosevelt Island Girl Scout Troops With Virtual Cookie Booth, Talent Show & Harry Potter Port Key Decoder Contest

Tomorrow (March 12) is the 109th
birthday of Girl Scouts of the USA!

In honor of the birthday, the Girl
Scouts of Greater New York is offering free shipping on Girl Scout
cookie purchases $20 and up from March 8 to March 21. So, if anyone is
looking to have some cookies delivered, gifted or donated to food
pantries in NYC, you can purchase from your favorite Girl Scout or from
one of the 5 island troops.

I have included their links below!

Also,
I wanted to let you know that the Roosevelt Island troops will not be
holding their usual in-person Saturday farmers market booths due to
COVID. However, Elle Erickson (leader of Junior Troop 3002) would like
to share this, “The Junior Girl Scouts of Roosevelt Island invite you to
a Virtual Cookie Booth on Saturday, March 13 at 6 pm.

Come for the
Talent Showcase, test your Girl Scout cookie knowledge for a chance to
win awesome prizes, and, of course BUY cookies! Cookie purchase is not
required to attend the event nor win prizes” Use this link to register:  tinyurl.com/troop3002virtualbooth

In
addition, the leader of our youngest troop (Brownies), Susy del Campo
Perea wanted to share the following information with you, “The RI
Brownie Troop 3244 will be making Harry Potter Port Keys for our
community to find by the end of March.

There will be secret messages
written on them. Keep an eye on the Port Key Decoder that will be shared
soon. Are you willing to take the challenge and decode as many Port
Keys as you can find? Our message aligns well with the organization that
Troop 3233 will support with earnings from our cookies sales: Ronald
MacDonald House NYC”

If
anyone wants to purchase cookies from our troops, links to all of the
troop digital cookie sales pages (in order from youngest to oldest
troops) are:
