Participation in this fall program prepares Girl Scouts and troops for success in the

Plan to join us for Snacks & Magazines season starting September 26! Our program mascot is the Hawaiian Monk Seal, who will help us “Go Bright Ahead” into the fall. Girl Scouts can offer tasty snacks and a full array of magazines for friends and family to purchase to benefit their troop. Catch a wave and all the program details coming later this summer!
