First Lady Michelle Obama discusses the important role played by Girl Scout volunteers in a new video released this week by Girl Scouts of the USA, for which she serves as National Honorary President.

Fall Product Sales Start Friday

Don't forget the 2013 Fall Product Sale Program (Nut/Candy and Magazines) kicks off Friday, October 4.  This program is a great way for troops to earn start-up funds and to save for upcoming programs like the Visit Savannah Experience, (Over)Night at the Museum in Buffalo and Whale Watching in Boston!  Goal setting is key and a great learning experience for girls! Troop materials and girl packets are available from your Service Unit Product Sale Coordinator (PSC)! Have questions? Please contact qsp@gsnypenn.org
