STATEWIDE: CEO EVENT - May 10, 2014



Aloha!

Now that we are wrapping up the 2014 Cookie Season, it's time to CELEBRATE the success of our Girl Scouts!!

This year's CEO Event will be held onboard the Star of Honolulu on May 10, 2014 from 11:30am-2:30pm.  There will be fun activities for the girls and a rare chance to cruise on this fabulous ship while enjoying a delicious luncheon buffet!

For those of you who are new, the CEO Event is an event to honor all of the girls hard work this season, but also to honor the girls who have sold 700+ boxes of cookies.  These girls may attend the event at no cost!

Of course, the more the merrier, and so we open this invitation to all girls and adult volunteers.  The cost per person will be as follows:

$45/person if registered by 4/20/14.

After 4/20/14, the rate will be $55/person.  This is a discounted rate and therefore a great opportunity to ride the Star of Honolulu.

Registration will begin some time later next week.  Stay tuned!

MAHALO and we hope that your troop will be able to join us!
