WINTER EDITION
‘Tis the season of happy holidays! We hope this season is filled with joy for you and your family. As we end 2013 and begin a new year, there are many upcoming opportunities for Girl Scout members, like trainings and of course the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Stay updated with the latest info in our membership quarterly.

'Tis the Season!

JOURNEY CORNER

GSLE RESOURCES
Because each girl is different, we expect—and hope—that each girl will have her own individual Girl Scout experience. The best way to ensure this is if every girl has her own GSLE resources like Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting and Journey books. Ultimately, it will help each girl have the most meaningful learning experience and outcomes.
