- Girl Scout Forever Green Service Project—GSNI is teaming up with Goodwill Industries to increase the use of reusable bags. Participants can stop by the GSFG station to make a reusable bag from a T-shirt. In fact, they can make two—one to take and one to be distributed to Goodwill shoppers. Participants may bring their own T-shirts if they prefer!
Girl-friendly, interactive booths will feature Girl Scout history, community groups, vendors and exhibitors. The Girl Scout Shop will be open and have a wide variety of items for sale including an event T-shirt and patch. The Convocation Center’s food court will also be open.
