| ||The S'MORE Distribution Schedule|
Can you believe summer is almost here? With the regular GS School Year winding down, we know many troops will keep doing things together but maybe not as frequently.
After the May 16 S'MORE, we will move from an every other week distribution to an as needed basis for June and July. Don't worry as new information and activities come together, we will make sure to share the information with you in a timely manner. When we hit August and it is time for Back to Troop, we will resume our every other week distribution with some EXCITING NEW Features!
We are always here to support! Please reach out to your membership manager or let us know
how we can help. Thanks for all you do!!
Early Bird Registration is Here!
|Early Bird Registration for the 2013-2014 membership year is now open. Re-register for next year and each girl will receive a free early bird patch this fall. The troop will also qualify for all on-time incentives.
| ||GSKSMO Day at California Pizza Kitchen -Today!|
|Need a break from cooking? Won't you consider taking your friends and/or family to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch, a snack or dinner today? The two participating locations in KCMO on the Plaza and Leawood will give 20% of everyone's check back to our council. You just have to print off and bring this flyer. Though the flyer says Girl Scouts USA, all proceeds will be given to our council to support girls locally.
This promotion was made possible by Alpha Phi Omega, a service fraternity at Rockhurst University who has chosen GSKSMO as their philanthropy partner.
Hope to see you there!

Special Price for Lifetime Membership
|We are fast approaching the graduation season! As our graduating Ambassadors spread their wings to their next leadership journey, we encourage them to take Girl Scouts with them. Maybe that is to follow in your amazing footsteps as a leader and help lead a younger troop while they are at college or to serve as a GS alumnae ambassador and tell others about their experience!
As a way to encourage their journey to an adult member, we have a special lifetime membership price just for our graduates. In the next three weeks, a letter with all the details will be sent to our graduates. However, we know some families may see a lifetime membership as a great graduation gift - so registration can be processed immediately.
The graduate can fill out the 2013 adult form
, pay the special price of $156
and return it to the KC Office. In order to take advantage of the reduced price, registrations must be received no later than September 20
. Because this is special pricing, online registration is unavailable for this option.
We look forward to all of our graduating Ambassadors continue their GS journey! For questions, please contact our registration help desk.
