Dear Girl Scout Family 


We're about 2 weeks away from Our World, Our Family, Lakes and Pines largest event of the year. Participants are close to 1,000 again this year. Girls from all over will be sharing SWAPS (click to learn more), trying new activities, and reconnecting with their friends!


Many troops participate in Our World, Our Family and other Girl Scout programs and camp, with the proceeds they earn from the Lakes and Pines Fall Product Sale and Girl Scout Cookie Sale programs. Girls learn life skills and help pay for their activities -- it's a win-win!


Our council is teaming up with ABC Bakers to get feedback from parents and volunteers about the Girl Scout Cookie Program. We'd really appreciate it if you'd take a few minutes to give us your thoughts. Click HERE to take survey!


Thanks so much for choosing to be a part of Girl Scouts. We're glad you're here! 






In observance of Labor Day, all Girl Scout Offices will be closed Monday, September 2.
