Congratulations to Robyn M. of Troop 3262 whose winning entry was chosen for this year’s GIRLFEST patch! 

GIRLFEST is Sunday, October 4th! Thanks to the Broadway Mall in Hicksville, Girl Scouts of Nassau County will once again present GIRLFEST in its spacious corridors …GIRLFEST is an opportunity for girls and Girl Scouts of all ages to come together for FUN, friendship and to share program ideas and activities … Last year over 1000 girls came out for the fun! Many of our great vendors who promote their programs through our Possibilities publication will be giving demonstrations and providing more info on the opportunities available from their companies and organizations. This is a great chance for Troop Leaders and girls to get a better idea on the program activities available, which will help as the girls plan their year and set their goals.
There will be opportunities to learn more about the Girl Scout Journeys, about the Girl Scout special interest groups, such as the UMOJA Alliance, the Asian Task Force and the Hispanic Latino Task Force, as well as getting the latest information on other new programs.  You can learn more about our Critical Issues work.  – And see previews of our Fall Products Program.  
The most exciting parts of GIRLFEST are the activities that are designed by and presented by the girls themselves. Various girls and their Troops will be demonstrating everything from our winning Lego Robotics teams, to arts and crafts activities, SWAPS and community service opportunities. (If you want to present an activity, HURRY!, we may be able to make room.) The Girl Scouts of Nassau County Chorus will perform. And there will be a contest to design this year’s Holiday Card for Girl Scouts of Nassau County.  
I hope to see you on Sunday afternoon, October 4th … You can register in advance for $5, or $10 at the door … All girls, from kindergarten and up are welcome, regardless of whether they are registered Girl Scouts.  There is no charge for adults. – And to continue the Girl Scout spirit of giving back,  all guests are asked to be bring non-perishable food items (cans, boxed) that will be donated to Island Harvest.
