Hi everyone!

I am so happy to see the Early Bird registrations flying into the Duluth and Waite Park offices! This is a busy and exciting time of year for everyone, and I am so thrilled to see that people are taking advantage of the great prizes that come with Early Bird registration.

As a reminder, all Early Bird registrations need to be turned in by June 15th. By turning in your troop roster by June 15th you recieve free membership for you and your coleader, and all of the girls will get the awesome new Early Bird patch! It is also a great way to simplify starting again in the fall. You can just invite the girls to their first meeting and start activities without having to worry about registration!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me by emailing arauwolf@gslakesandpines.org or calling 218-302-3181.

Thank you,
Ashley

Do your girls have a green thumb?

Girl Scout Troops are invited to attend “Girls in the Garden”, a summer opportunity for Brownie and Junior Girl Scouts to earn badges and have fun outside with their Girl Scout friends. These sessions are sponsored by Common Ground Garden, a ministry of the Sisters of the Order of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, MN.
During each session, the girls will work with an experienced staff member or volunteer to explore a topic and complete requirements for the chosen girl scout badge. Troop leaders will be responsible for ordering and distributing the badges after the garden session.
Sessions will run from July 6th until August 18th and are $5.00 per participant per session. For more information check out this information flyer.

Community Product Sales Managers should have been receiving shipments of cookie sale recognition items this week.  Unfortunately it appears that the duffle bags which girls earned at the 650 - 749 package level were omitted from this shipment.  Our vendor is making a separate shipment of the duffle bags and we have heard they should be going out today.  So if your shipment is missing a duffle bag or bags, they should arrive very soon.  If you have any questions, please contact your Product Sales and Finance Specialist.
