New Badges & Books
It's an exciting time for the Girl Scout Movement!
Girl Scouts is celebrating its 100th Anniversary in 2012, and one of the many ways GSUSA is marking this historic event is by refreshing the look of program handbooks and badges. The new national Girl Scout Program of Books & Badges is more contemporary, fun, exciting and engaging for girls and leaders.
Get Ready for the Fun Refresh!
Good news! The new program books, Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting, will arrive by the end of September! The Badge Activity Sets and the new Legacy badges and pins will be available in our seven service center shops soon thereafter. Beginning August 16, we are pre-selling the Girl’s Guide for each level Girl Scout for an introductory price of $16.87 in each of our shops. As soon as the new program books arrive, we’ll contact you to schedule pick-up.
Important Update on Retired Program Badges and Pins: October 15, 2011 Deadline
From the beginning of this program transition, we have been asking leaders who want to proceed with the retired program to plan their 2011-2012 year as early as possible because of badge and pin inventory depletion. You may recall from our earlier communications that it would get increasingly challenging to find larger quantities of popular, retired badges and pins. This has become true, sooner than we anticipated. Because of this, all retired badge and pin orders (especially large troop purchases) need to be placed by October 15. GSGLA will continue to search and fill these orders from outside of our council if needed. After October 15, all retired badge and pin orders will be filled with our existing stock only until completely depleted. The badges and pins that are out of inventory will not be offered at our online store after Oct. 15.
To purchase retired badges and pins for girls to complete their activities this year, please visit GSGLA's Online Store to place an order immediately. Our Service Center shops have depleted their inventory of retired badges and pins. For individual orders, please allow approximately two weeks for delivery of merchandise. For larger orders, we will make every effort to deliver in a timely manner. All of your purchases in our Online Store go toward local GSGLA programs for our girls.
