Harmony Junior Girl Scout Troop 44023 makes donation to Jem Theatre


Mon, Jun 18th, 2012
Posted in All Business Announcements

On May 23, 2012, Harmony Junior Girl Scout Troop 44023 presented Michelle Haugerud, owner of the JEM Theatre, with a check for $250.

Emma Breitsprecher, Shelby Hanson, Krista Jorgenson, Hailey Lange, Molly McKernan, Kira Nelson, Grace Springer, Nati VandeZande and Morgan Wingert, along with their leaders, Heather Barth and Marilyn Bratager, worked hard during the cookie season to help raise funds for the JEM Theatre. Together the girls sold 1,997 boxes of cookies.

Cookie Go-Day, the first day of cookie sales, was February 11, 2012, and happened to coincide with the benefit being held for the JEM Theatre at Wheelers in Harmony. Generosity was great that night as 70 boxes of cookies were sold, with all the profits to go to the JEM Theatre.

In addition to the girls selling on their own, they also went out door to door as a troop on two occasions, leaving calling cards at those homes where no one answered the door.

The girls wrapped up the cookie season by selling outside the JEM Theatre during the very mild March weather. They took shifts over Friday, Saturday and Sunday showings the weekends of March 16 and March 23 and sold 110 boxes. They also participated in a cookie booth at Apache Mall in Rochester.

Troop 44023 received $.60 per box sold, and proceeds for the 180 boxes sold for the JEM Theatre project totaled $108, but the girls decided to make their donation $250.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Girl Scouts this past cookie season. It is greatly appreciated. The money earned by the troops is used to purchase supplies for activities, pay next year’s membership fees, and also to cover the cost of badges, etc.
