We are so excited to announce that Duluth is hosting the 2014 US Capitol Christmas Tree...and the community needs the help of local Girl Scouts to pull off the celebration!  Troops and families both are welcome to participate in the free event celebrating the Capitol Christmas tree as it passes through Duluth from the Chippewa Forest on its way to Washington DC.  

The community-wide celebration will take place Wednesday, November 5 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Bayfront Park in Duluth, MN.  For more information about the event, click here

You can be an important part of the celebration!  Girl Scouts and adult volunteers are needed to help with the ornament decorating station at the event. Volunteers will earn a free specially-designed, one-of-a-kind Capitol Christmas Tree patch, compliments of Advantage Emblem.

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!

Help Needed:  Troop willing to decorate 1 to 6 large collection boxes for the LSS Crisis Nursery December Diaper Drive.  These will be used by businesses who are collecting donated diapers and wipes from employees or the general public.

Boxes (you can get them or we can provide them) should say "December Diaper Drive" on them, and can be done in baby/diaper themes in any media you want.  We can provide you later in the year with a flier via email that you can print off and use on the box to identify it.

We can give you names and locations to drop the various boxes off at the end of November or we can pick up and deliver.

Contact:  Laura Zahn, Diaper Drive volunteer organizer, 728-1445, or email DiaperDrive@aol.com
