While you are wrapping up your Fall Sale, take a peek at our travel opportunities (http://www.gslakesandpines.org/files/4281.pdf), and see where Girl Scouts can take you! Girls can use Cookie Dough, Adventure Points and the money their troop earns toward a trip!
Our council group of both National Delegates as well as visitors just returned from their trip to Salt Lake City, Utah for the 53rd National Convention. The National Convention happens every three years, and we hope that you include the 2017 Convention in Columbus, Ohio in your troop’s plans. Every three years, Girl Scouts from all over the world gather together in sisterhood to share their passions, learn new skills and decide the future of Girl Scouting! Mark your calendars and register today!
To celebrate Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday this month, try out some of these fun ideas; play a game that Juliette would have played
as a girl—try charades or telephone; bake your own Girl Scout cookies, like girls did decades ago; learn more about Juliette and put on a skit for your troop; or throw a birthday party for Juliette!

Fall is a great time to plan out the programs that your girls want to attend this Girl Scout year—check out the Program Guide to see all of the great events and programs your troop has to chose from! In November, we have two Girls’ Night Out events to pick from, in Superior and in St. Cloud. As always, there are Programs on the Go, where the program comes to you!

The 2014 Fall Product Sale Program has begun, but it’s not too late to DIVE IN and BE ACTIVE!!! Girls can earn recognition credit until October 19 by selling nuts and chocolates, magazines and photo keepsakes. Troops earn 20% in proceeds on items sold; an easy way to gain start up funds for your troop! Interested? Contact your Product Sales and Finance Specialist today to get started.
Volunteers who took the Fall Product Sale Program Training received a certificate for FREE Digital Troop Photo Book for their troop. If you have tried to redeem your troop’s certificate and have gotten an error message – do not be alarmed. There are some delays as the vendor gets this exciting new program up and running. Missed one of the council’s in person Fall Sale Trainings and interested in receiving a certificate for a FREE Digital Troop Photo Book? Contact your Product Sales and Finance Specialist to find out how – while supplies last!
In search of excellent Express Cookie Cupboards! Looking ahead to the 2015 Cookie Sale Program, we find that there are a number of openings for Cookie Cupboards in our council. Consider volunteering to take on this vital role of our Cookie Sale. Hosting an Express Cookie Cupboard does not take a great space or time commitment. Receive a cookie shipment once a week during the sale, only when your area troops place a planned order and choose your cupboard as their pick up site. After delivery, troops come and pick up just the cookies that they ordered and there is not much more to do for the week. If troops do not place any orders that week, no cookies are delivered. And there is no additional product on hand to store! This volunteer position would be great for retired or work/stay-at-homes with internet access. Interested? Know someone who could host an Express Cupboard? Need more information? Contact your Product Sales and Finance Specialist.
Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered the new gluten free Trios cookie for the 2015 Cookie Sale. Did your troop miss the opportunity to place a pre-order and participate in this year’s pilot program? It’s not too late! We still have a limited number of cases available. Interested in participating in the Gluten Free Cookie Pilot Program? See all of the details on our website and contact us today!
