Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania joins Girl Scouts around the country to make the world a better place as we celebrate Girl Scout Week and the 98th anniversary of Girl Scouts from March 7-13. More than three million girls in the United States and more than 35,000 girls in Western Pennsylvania are discovering their path to leadership through Girl Scouts.
The following is being provided to clarify reports on Lemon Chalet Crème cookies:
Pittsburgh, PA – The increased scrutiny of the fashion industry and its use of ultra-thin models isn’t without validation, as nearly 9 in 10 American teenage girls say that the fashion industry is at least partially responsible for “girls’ obsession with being skinny,” according to a national survey released this month by the Girl Scouts of the USA.
Little Brownie Bakers recently received a few contacts from consumers informing us of an off taste and smell from certain packages of Lemon Chalet Crème cookies. We immediately took the precautionary step of testing product samples. We determined that while the cookies are safe for consumers to eat, they are not up to our quality standards.
What goes better than Girl Scout cookies and milk? Girl Scouts and computers. For that reason, Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania is providing new online marketing tools to help girls add an even greater competitive edge to their sales techniques.
Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania will begin accepting reservations for Day Camp beginning March 1, 2010. Listed below are the dates, times, locations and contact information for the 2010 Summer Day Camps.
Making the world a better place is central to the Girl Scout mission. This year, as our world neighbors help the people of Haiti recover from a catastrophic earthquake, Girl Scouts have the opportunity to set a special cookie goal and designate a portion of their sale proceeds to go toward many of the relief efforts.
GSWPA Town Hall Meetings are scheduled and open to members age 14 and older. Agenda items include:
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Haitians, their friends and families, as they begin the process of managing the aftermath of the catastrophic earthquake of January 12. We have received numerous calls from Girl Scouts around the country asking how to help.
The 2010 Awards of Distinction Dinner will be held on Wednesday, May 19, 2010 at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA.
