Green Bay Property Update 3.5.14
In our last update on 2.10.14, we mentioned that there was a new offer on the GBSC on Finger Road. The GSNWGL board has approved the offer. Two things have to happen still for the sale to proceed. The building inspection will take place on March 6 and the Green Bay Planning Commission meets on March 10 to discuss the zoning reclassification. If all goes according to plan, the zoning change approval would be passed at the April 15, 2014 Green Bay City Council meeting. This would mean GSNWGL would close on the sale and relocate sometime between April 16 and April 30. We should have a clearer picture of the timeline after the Monday, March 10 planning commission meeting.
The new intended location for the Green Bay Girl Scout office is 112 Adams Street in Green Bay’s vibrant and growing downtown. (more…)
Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Anna Maria Chávez released a video statement this afternoon, confronting recent misconceptions about our organization. In the video, Chávez explains what Girl Scouts is all about and reminds us that, “A box of Girl Scout cookies is not a political statement. It is an investment in a girl and her dreams.” We are extremely proud of the great work Girl Scouts do in their communities with the money they earn from selling cookies, and we will continue to deliver the mission of Girl Scouting—to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place—to girls and women of every background.
Cookie Season Still Going Strong!
Girls are still taking cookie orders through March 14, and will be hosting cookie booths throughout the month of March! Have you placed your cookie order yet? Make sure to ask the Girl Scout in your life about her goals, and how many boxes of cookies she needs to sell to reach them. Don’t know a Girl Scout? Call our cookie hotline at 800.246.4171 and we’ll connect you with a Girl Scout in your neighborhood.
Girls, parents, and volunteers: get more information about the second wave of cookie sales (keep goal-ing) here.
Camp registration is now open! There are lots of exciting day, weekend, and resident camp programs to choose from this year, with unique activities like geocaching, glamping, and duct tape art to more traditional camp activities like canoeing, hiking, and campfire cooking.
We’re proud to introduce some new programs to our camp lineup this year, such as Urban Adventure, which provides the perfect mix of city activities and outdoor adventures from zip lining to a drive-in movie. Back by popular demand, we are also running a number of wilderness trips this summer for girls interested in biking, backpacking, canoeing, and kayaking, as well as Wild West—an incredible hiking and horseback riding trip in the Badlands!
