100 Reasons to  
Re-Register This Summer!

Existing troops that register online for 2013-14 by August 30, 2013 will be entered to win $100 "shop dollars" to spend on anything in the shop or council programs!  Each girl that is registered by August 30, earns her service unit $2.50. These funds help with service unit encampments and other fun activities for girls!

Volunteer to Plan
Closing Ceremonies
