Oct. 16 2014 Update: Fall Meeting for Area 17, the UNofficial Calendar and blog link, Camp Pennyroyal High Ropes, and Cookie Training

Hi, all! Here is some news for Area 17 and Beyond today.

Cookie Training

Via Tracey: "From our Cookie Team:
The November SU and cookie training meeting will be in the Centertorium (the large center room on the first floor) of the Jones-Jaggers Building at WKU beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 11. Please be sure to make plans for your troop's cookie chair to be there for this important training. 

As I understand it, there have been some changes made so it is  very important to attend this training in order for your troop to be able to sell cookies this troop year.  
Remember that the ACH form should have been turned in by now for each troop.  If not, then your troop will not be able to sell cookies until it is.
Please do PLAN TO BE THERE!"
