By selling Girl Scout products to friends and family, you can develop valuable life skills like goal setting, money management, people skills, business ethics and teamwork – while you have fun! The Girl Scouts of Rhode Island, Inc. sponsors two product sales each year. All Girl Scouts – from Daisies to Ambassadors – can participate. Only troops that have participated in both product sales can do any additional fundraising.
Get ready! The 2013 Girl Scout Cookie Sale begins December 21and runs through March 27. We'll kick off the season with a fun event for girls and their familes on Sunday, January 6 at the Dunkin' Donuts Center with the Providence Bruins. Girl Scouts, their families and friends are invited to this fun-filled event. The Cookie Sale events for girls, friends and family members will take place on the concourse from 11am to 2pm. The game starts at 3pm.
Tickets are $16 each. Get your tickets NOW by contacting Brent Arnold at email@example.com or by calling him at (401) 680-4700. Deadline to purchase tickets is January 5.
Please Note: No readmission to the Dunkin' Donuts Center once you've entered.
This year's Girl Scout Cookie Program theme, What Can a Girl Do?, will remind you that you can do anything you want to do once you set your mind to it. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you'll learn 5 Key Skills -- goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
Introducing a New Cookie!
This year we'll be offering a new cookie: Mango Cremes.
These tangy, refreshing tropical treats are packed with great taste AND vitamins! Crunchy vanilla and coconut cookies feature a mango-flavored creme filling with all the nutrient benefits of eating cranberries, pomegranates, oranges, grapes, and strawberries!
Close your eyes, take a bite, and feel like you’re on a tropical island. Mango Cremes combine a crispy cookie with the taste of mango. No trans fats, hydrogenated oils, or preservatives—just pure island delight!

The theme for this year's QSP/Ashdon Farms magazine, nut and candy sale is "What Can a Girl Do? Get Connected!". Be sure to visit www.whatcanagirldo.com to check out activities for each grade level that tie in with the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
Girl Scouts encourages girls to stay connected to family, friends, community and the world. Girls of all ages and in all "pathways" can participate in activities throughout the sale that help them learn to make good decisions, excercise their people skills, and manage money to reach goals. Girls can also earn proceeds for troop activities and, at the same time, build self-confidence and learn how to work as a team.
The sale of these products to family and friends also benefits the many services, programs and events that are offered by the council each year and also helps troops earn start-up funds for the new troop year.

OCTOBER 1: ASHDON FARMS STATEMENT ON CURRENT PEANUT BUTTER RECALL: Ashdon Farms products are not impacted by the current ongoing recall of peanut butter, nut butters, and related items currently being conducted in connection with product from Sunland, Inc.
As you may be aware, there is a growing number of product recalls associated with peanut butter and other nut butters produced by Sunland, Inc., including a large number of products that used nut butters provided by Sunland as ingredients. Ashdon Farmrs does not use Sunland as a supplier and therefore has no involvement in the recall.

What Does a Troop Earn?
The troop will earn $1.50 for each magazine subscription sold and $2.00 for each paper address booklet that is completed (a minimum of 8 names/addresses of family and friends). Girls can once again earn proceeds for any magazine orders placed via the internet. Print out order confirmations and submit them with the rest of your family and friends only! There are incentives available for the sale of magazines, beginning at two subscriptions.
Troops will earn $1.00 for every candy or nut item that they sell. These orders should be paid for when the order is taken (checks payable to GSRI). Girls will also receive incentives for 5+ candy and nut items sold.
New this year! Older girls (Cadettes through Ambassadors) may opt out of incentives and receive additional proceeds for the fall sale. By opting out of incentives, Troops receive an additional 15 cents for each candy or nut item sold and an additional 25 cents for each magazine subscription or renewal that they sell. This decision must be made as a troop and cannot be split within a troop. Simply indicate this choice on the nut-e website when placing your troop orders and the proceeds will be calculated for you!
