The CEO of Girls Scouts of America made an announcement this morning that will affect all Girl Scout members. Starting October 1, 2017 the fee to join Girl Scouts will be $25 for girl and adult members.
Our troop, Troop 6374, will be looking into some fundraising to help the girls who did not meet the 160 boxes of cookies to get a free membership next year. There is still the application for funding through the Girl Scouts them selves as well.
\Now I am awaiting information from our council to find out if we do the early registration as we have done in years past if we pay the old fee of $15 or the new of $25. As soon as I have this information I will update this blog.
Here is some information from the press release the CEO released today, this is not the full article:
