2010 Fall Product Program

posted Aug 31, 2010, 4:37 PM by
Welcome to the 2010 Fall Product Program for the Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys. This year girls will work as a team to
“Design Your Future; Construct a Plan.”
The troop will create a blueprint of the group’s objectives for the year. The blueprint is the detailed plan for the upcoming year.
• What are the objectives/goal for the year?
• Brainstorm the list of activities girls would like to do this year
• How much money will the troop need for activities?
• Set goals for the Fall Product Program and Cookie Program Activity
• Work on a timeline/calendar for the year
The troop can then refer back to the plan throughout the year. Plans may need to be re-evaluated monthly, after the product programs, or after each activity. The troop will learn to prepare, adapt, and overcome obstacles. River Valleys Girl Scouts will give friends and families the opportunity to purchase high quality nut/chocolate items from Ashdon Farms and to purchase or renew
magazine subscriptions from QSP either online or in person. Troops earn proceeds from each item purchased to help fund their upcoming Girl Scout activities and community service projects.

Thank you for making River Valleys’ Fall Product Program a fun and safe experience for your girl and all the girls in her troop!
