Calling all volunteers

Fall Product Sale - What Can A Girl Do?

Our annual Fall Product Sale, What Can A Girl Do? , starts October 12. Girls can sell magazine subscriptions (new and renewals) as well as nuts and chocolates in order to earn proceeds for their troop activities at the beginning of the Girl Scout year -- plus earn lots of great patches and recognitions. And again this year, Girl Scout troops may collect donations for a special Treats for Troops order for U.S. military troops serving around the world.

Cookie University is back!

Register for the 2nd Annual Girl Scout Cookie University October 13 at Campbell University (Buies Creek). Girls can attend a variety of interactive break-out sessions taught by real business professionals and "cookie experts." They'll learn life skills, successful selling and marketing strategies, new ideas for successful cookie booths -- and earn a "Cookie Diploma." Register today!

Girl Scout Shops - shop in person or online

If you haven't seen some of the wonderful, new things for fall at the Girl Scout Shops, you are really missing something. Come in and see new T-shirts, charms, earrings, key chains, and socks for girls of all ages


CPR training for teen girls

CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) training is now required in order to graduate from high school, starting with the graduating class of 2015. As always, Girl Scouts are already a step ahead, and we have already scheduled three teen CPR classes. Their schedule is on page 12 of the new GO! magazine.

Look again: The Girl Scout Specialty License Plate

We must collect orders from the first 300 people who want to purchase the plate. (It's a tax-deductible $30 charge above the cost of a regular plate: $10 goes to support the highway beautification project, and $20 goes to support Girl Scouting in North Carolina!) All the details are on our website, and you can complete your order through C.O.R.E. (Council Online Registration Entry). You can also complete the order form and mail it to Raleigh.

Have a great September ... as we all get ready for a new Girl Scout year!
