GIRL SCOUT MAGNUT SALE! (FALL 2013 --Begins Oct. 1, 2013)....... SEE all important DATES below.....
Our Annual Girl Scout Nut, Candy, & Magazine Program will begin October 1, 2013. Everyone knows Girl Scouts sell cookies in the spring, but our Fall Nut & Magazine Sale is also an important fundraiser for our girls, helping them earn money (15% of proceeds) for their Troop's activities, supplies and/or community service projects. The program focuses on teaching girls 5 key skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
Candy and nuts will be delivered in early November, just in time for holiday entertaining and gift giving (Don't forget your child's teachers on your list of gifts to give!). Payment from your girl's customers is due at the time of product delivery. However, payment for magazine orders are taken at the time of ordering.
Remember! through "Operation: Sweet Appreciation" during our MagNut Program, you can send Hot Cajun Crunch Snack Mix to our U.S. Military (refer to order form....Note: the products ship directly from the vendor to U.S. Military troops.)! Last year, girls in our council (GSWPA) sent a little over 10,000 cans of Honey Roasted Peanuts to our Military both here and abroad. Amazing!
