Bee in the Know! Grab your best party gear and join us for our funnest Fall Product Training ever. Yes, there will be prizes!


The 2013 Fall Product Sale Program is a great way for troops to earn start-up funds for activities the girls would like to participate in during the Girl Scout year. Reconnect with your Girl Scout friends, win prizes, and get the latest information about the Fall Product Sale. It's an easy way for the girls to have fun learning and earning money for activities this year! We encourage at least one adult
volunteer from each troop to attend either a council training or a training offered by your Community Product Sales Manager. If you have not been to a Fall Sale training before or if it has been a while, come and check it out.

Choose the party that fits you best!

Each event begins at 6:30 pm and will be wrapped up by 8:00 pm.

  • Monday, August 26, Girl Scout Office, 803 Kingwood Street, Brainerd
  • Tuesday, August 27, Kanabec County Court House, 18 North Vine Street, Mora

RSVP by August 21 to Maureen or 320-247-4571.

Well over the months as I’ve talked with volunteers I often hear that girls have so many choices by the time they are  a Junior that we often loose them to other activities: dance, sports…..  Well I read an article this morning and I’d like to share part of it with you.

" There’s lots of buzz about how third-grade reading levels are predictors of high school success. Our National Program Portfolio is of course tied to curriculum standards. Have you shared this information?  With whom? Are you making sure all Girl Scout Daisies and Brownies are going home from Girl Scouts with their own books…and that their parents know how valuable it is to spend even a few minutes reading with their daughters?"

~Eileen

Goodness what a bonus I think you all know I feel strongly about recruiting the parent right along with the girl.  Next time I hear how girls/parents are choosing dance or sports over Girl Scouts well I think I’ll be more prepared with an awesome comeback.  What parent doesn’t want success for their child?  Reading with or to their girls is something most parents can do and learn about Girl Scouts at the same time.   I’m betting the parent reading to their child would want to volunteer too!   Girl Scouts isn’t just another activity we are helping pave the path for their successful future.

 

It’s not to late to nominate a deserving adult for an award.  Check out the criteria and let me know if you need assistance. I’d be happy to help: http://www.gslakesandpines.org/pages/Recognition/

 

Thank you for being awesome volunteers!
