September 22 - October 22 Sale Dates
Is your Girl Scout troop interested in a money earning activity that’s easy, provides start up funds right away, and offers customers a variety of delicious yet inexpensive items to purchase? Click here to register. The council’s Fall Product Sale of nuts, candies, magazines, and address booklets begins September 22, with a theme of Unleash Your Hero. Ashdon Farms/QSP, the licensed Girl Scout vendor, has even prepared a lot of fun activities for Girl Scouts of all ages to enjoy.
Ashdon Farms/QSP has also provided an Interactive Activities link that is a supplement to the printed Be A Reader (BAR) Activity Booklet. Click here to visit the site.
Girls earn start up money for their troop and earn cool patches and other recognitions!
The fall product sale differs from the cookie sale in that all orders are pre-paid, and there are no booth sales. The troop earns $1 for every food item sold, and 10% of the price of each magazine sold (and 15% for online sales). The family and friends sale runs September 22-October 22. Girls deliver the orders November 14-18, and since the money is pre-collected, the troop receives their proceeds immediately. Recognitions are delivered in December.
Community Fall Product Training is August 26.
Troops must be registered by September 14 for the 2018 membership year to participate in the sale. The sale is for all age levels but as always, participation in the fall product sale is entirely voluntary. Participating in a Council-sponsored product sale teaches essential business skills including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
