January, February Are for Joining Girl Scouts; Thin Mints Outsold Oreos in 2012
Calling all girls, grades K through 12! Girl Scout cookie fun is here and we want you to join our team!
Did you know girls can join Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri (GSEM) for spring sessions in January and February as well as fall sessions in August and September? There’s no better time to join the Girl Scout movement. GSEM serves more than 50,000 girls. We serve one in four girls in our jurisdiction, compared to the national average of one in 11. More than 18,000 dedicated volunteers support our girl members. Annual Girl Scout dues are $12. New Girl Scout troops are forming in January and February throughout GSEM's council for the 2013 membership year.
Please visit our website, www.girlscoutsem.org to view recruitment nights in your area. This list is updated daily with new locations, dates and opportunities, so check back regularly.
As Girl Scouts, girls join almost three million girls nationwide, exploring and discovering their world, connecting with others and taking action to make their world a better place. Girls of all races, ethnicities, creeds, national origins, socioeconomic statuses or abilities in grades K-12 can join Girl Scouts by accepting the Girl Scout Promise and Law and paying the annual membership dues. Scholarships are available.

And for you cookie aficionados, GSEM’s annual Cookie Program continues. Did you know that five of the top 10 selling cookies sold in the United States are Girl Scout Cookies? Sales of Thin Mints surpassed Oreo sales
in 2012, making Thin Mints the No. 1 selling cookie in the country. Girl Scouts will sell cookies door-to-door, including our new Mango Crèmes, until Feb. 3. Additional orders will be taken between Feb. 4 and March 17 while cookie booths and cookie cupboards will open Feb. 27 and continue until March 17. Start your year off right with Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri!
