Eagan Girl Scouts are hosting an information table for families to visit and learn about Girl Scouts.  Girl Scouts of all ages and some adults are needed to help staff the booth with Doreen for shifts of 30 minutes, or longer if possible - sign up for a timeslot – I’d like to have 2 Girl Scouts and an additional adult during each shift.  We’ll be handing out information and giving out prizes to kids who play the Plinko board.  All you need to do is show your pride and enthusiasm about Girl Scouts and share your stories and experiences!  I’m also looking to borrow a shade canopy about 10’x10’ to cover our booth space – contact Doreen Gloede if you have one to loan.

Troop Finance Reports are due by June 30
Submission of the troop finance report is mandatory and covers the period June 1, 2017 through May 31, 2018. The report is required by GSUSA and the IRS to ensure proper records of funds are maintained and kept on file for audit purposes; to protect the interest of the troop and the volunteers; to provide helpful info for new volunteers assuming leadership of an existing troop; to answer questions from RV and troop families about troop funds and their use; for troops to be approved for money-earning projects; and to avoid financial restriction on leadership roles by volunteers.  Make the time to review your troop’s financial records with the girls in the troop and allow them to prepare the finance report with your guidance so that they become financially literate and fully know and understand the status of their troop funds!  Questions about the finance report may be directed to Doreen Gloede at dgloede@comcast.net or Eagan SU Treasurer, Cindy Childs-Hager, at childshager@usfamily.net.  The online troop finance report must be submitted with a copy of your most current bank statement.
