We are currently in the process of talking to the people below from our Regional Girl Scouts and maybe representatives from Little Brownie Bakers about having another meeting soon to continue discussing this issue. We have been talking to an expert on canola who may possibly attend this meeting to talk with the Girl Scouts and show them that there are other healthy and environmently-friendly oils avaliable. We will keep you updated on this and let you know what happens!

We had a great meeting today with; Jan Barker (CEO of GS Heart of Michigan), Nancy Kern (Chief Advancement Executive GSHOM), Crystal Bell (Adult Recruitment and Education Executive GSHOM), Char Luttrell (Communications Specialist GSHOM), Shirley Marchand (Product Sales Specialist GSHOM), and Denise Mitchell and Brenda Smith from Little Brownie Bakers. Gail Wolkoff (Service Learning Director at Greenhills School) and Jamey Hein (Middle School Director of Greenhills School) attended with us. We presented about removing palm oil from Girl Scout Cookies. We all had a great discussion about how to educate other girls about our project and how they too can be leaders. We are looking forward to working with this wonderful group of people to eventually remove palm oil from Girl Scout Cookies.
