Fresno Zoo Trip...!

We took a little trip to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo this past weekend.
This trip was earned by selling cookies a few months ago. It was postponed in the summer due to 100+ weather.
Finally, the weather was right and it was time to go...!
It was a special time for the girls and even families to come together for a little fun.

I hadn't been to that Zoo in years...!
I am so glad my kids got to have that experience.
My favorite thing about Girl Scouts is all new experiences and trying and learning new things.
It's completely and utterly FUN all around...!

Online Magazine Sales.

If your Girl Scout {with a parents' help} enters 12 email addresses to send a message to about magazines, they receive the Online Patch and Flower Necklace.
Basically, what you do is this....if you are confused by the instructions....
Go to this website http://www.girlscoutsccs.org/ or click on this direct link to the exact page {click here!} 

 Where it has this icon below....click on it.
It shall take you to another page to register your Girl Scout.
It's easy and they do not send you things all year round, trust me.
If your child has an email, type it in....my girls do not...so I use mine.
Follow directions. You may add another Girl Scout if you have another daughter onto the account.

They may ask you some questions with your girl.
Enter 12 email addresses. They will send those people an email to buy magazines. Your friends and family are not obligated or nor do not have to buy from these email messages. It's really not a big deal. It does keep track of who does buy from them though and will go directly to your child's magazine sales.
Print out where it says Detailed Order Report and give it to Amanda. Please make sure to tell Amanda if you did do this because we need to make sure you get your incentive plus when all the paperwork comes back there will be discrepancies in the monies.
If you have questions, please call one of us...! I don't want you to miss out on an easy patch...!
