Our Fall Product Sale is starting soon.  This is a great way for troops to earn start-up funds for the year.  And, we promise, it really is easy!



I have a lot of troop leaders tell me they don't participate in Fall Product because it is too hard.   I recognize that many schools have large fall fund-raisers and asking folks to purchase things gets wearying, even if it is fantastic Girl Scout cookies.   The fall product sale, though, is much quicker and easier than selling cookies.   The funds to the troops are higher, as well.  This program was developed so troops could earn funds to get started with each year.   Also, it tends to be oriented more toward friends and family and includes magazine sales.   Who doesn't like a good magazine or some delicious treats?

The products, if you are ordering nuts and candy, are delivered prior to the Thanksgiving holidays, which make them great for holiday gift giving.   The payback is quick and easy, too. If you are in a quandary, here's a link to the fall product family guide, take a look. Trainings will be presented on Sept. 12 (Montgomery) and Sept. 13 (Mobile).

1st Deadline for the Troop Cookie Bonus:

Friday, Nov 18, is the deadline to turn in a signed Position Description and to log in to SNAP and complete the Troop Information page.  

Hurry, we don't want you to miss out on these first requirements to earn the Cookie Bonus!

This form may be completed, signed electronically and emailed to your SU Cookie Chair.

Then, log in to SNAP at and complete your troop information page.

All troops that had SNAP IDs and passwords last year, can simply go into SNAP (using the same email address as last year) and retrieve a forgotten password.

7-fp2011a.gifThe 2011 Fall Product Sale is a council-sponsored money-earning opportunity that enables Girl Scout troops to earn funds at the beginning of the Girl Scout year and includes several products that make great gifts.

This year's sale offers both nuts and magazines!

The theme of this year's sale is Investing in Today = Success for Tomorrow and is all about discovering, connecting and taking action to make the world a better place. Working together, girls learn essential skills like goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics... all while having fun with their friends and raising money to support their Girl Scout experience.
