A Message from the CEO
Sign up now and
get this fun patch!

 

Dear Members, Volunteers, Parents, Alumnae and Friends of GSEP,

 

I love hearing about all of the fun adventures our Girl Scouts have had this year: learning new skills, completing journeys, selling cookies, camping, taking troop trips, participating in community service, and taking action to make the world a better place. 

 

Imagine what they'll do next year! 

 

Now is the time to re-register for the upcoming program year. Early-bird registration for 2014-2015 begins May 2nd and runs through June 30th. 

 

Re-registering now will ensure that your troop is ready to participate in the fall "Nuts About Reading" product sale, which is an excellent (and easy!) way to raise funds for your fall activities. Plus, all girls who re-register before June 30th will get a free fun patch! 

 

You can keep up to date on everything that's going on at GSEP by following us on Facebook and Twitter. And don't forget to let us know what you're up to as well! You can check out some of the accomplishments and photos that troops have shared with us recently at the end of this email.

 

Yours in Scouting,

Natalye Paquin
