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.

Visit the Fall Product page for more information and resources.

Tail-Wagger Treats is an intergenerational activity that involves kids, senior citizens and homeless dogs!  

Children under the supervision of troop leaders, will work with the residents in Assisted Living and / or Memory Care at Somerby in Mobile, AL, once a week, making and baking organic dog treats for the animals at the local humane shelters.  Together the kids and seniors will mix, roll out, cut, bake and bag cookies that our Assisted Living residents will deliver to the Shelter once a month.  This is an ongoing project that we hope will never end: it is a win-win opportunity for our children, our seniors and our local shelters.  It's a whole lot of fun too!

Troops can sign up for one Saturday morning of their choice for an hour of baking.  We can have two groups of 6 girls baking and rolling at the same time as long as there is 2 adults with each group.   

 The fun begins at 10 am, and 1 hour should be plenty of time.

 Contact Sue Williams SUM 804 for more info or to sign up your troop. You can reach me at suefwilliams@msn.com or at 251-661-2810.

Be a part of the Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary Float in the Tournament of Roses Parade on January 2, 2012! The spectacular float, designed and decorated by Girl Scouts, will celebrate our centennial anniversary and be viewed by an international audience of
more than 50 million!
Girl Scouts hopes that all girls, adults, staff and volunteers will want to join in the excitement and ride "virtually" on the float. For a $5 donation, which will support the float, anyone can make a Float Flower Dedication and specify a name of their choice to be put on the float and "ride" the parade route. People have dedicated flowers for their daughters, troop leaders, volunteers, mothers or in memory of a loved one--the possibilities are endless.
Please consider joining in on this unique opportunity and telling your friends too! Visit this website or www.girlscoutsla.org to get your name on the float or make a dedication in honor of a Girl Scout, alumna, troop leader, family member or friend today. And don't forget to watch the Girl Scouts' float live on January 2, 2012, in the Tournament of Roses Parade! For questions about dedications, please e-mail floatdedications@girlscoutsla.org.
