The Fall Product Program is happening now!

Your girl can kick off the Girl Scouting year and help raise funds for her troop! We know it’s a busy time, but this program can be completely done online, just by sending a few emails. Head to gswny.org/fppresources to learn more and get started today!

Gluten Free Cookie Orders: We know it’s still the Fall Program, but don’t forget all orders for Gluten Free cookies are due by October 22! They won’t be on the order card, so if you want them for the program, you must pre-order.
