May 18 Cookie Program Update:
GSHNJ is NOT expecting that troops, leaders, families, and/or cookie managers assume financial responsibility for unsold cookies if they cannot afford it.
GSHNJ CEO Natasha Hemmings is allowing the cookie program to continue in a modified fashion to help troops move existing cookie inventory out of our living rooms and fulfill any orders already taken, and to make sure that no one is unduly burdened financially. Please read her May 14 message regarding the cookie program for details and instructions.
Council Note Re Recognitions which are events, updated May 18:
As information continues to change, we are working closely with our vendors to reschedule recognitions.
G.I.R.L. 2020 is CANCELLED. We are working on a replacement recognition instead.
Disney’s Frozen on Broadway is officially closed (the show is not reopening). Council has not offered an alternate reward yet.
No word yet on Fab Fest.
All other recognitions do not have planned dates and are being evaluated as the state begins to open back up. (Please note there is no specific information currently available about the Mets/Yankees Girl Scouts Day games in August and September.)
